2009 HAS BEGUN!
Wow, what a fantastic year! 2008 was truly amazing… a record year for us… you can probably tell we have not had much time to blog about all of our experiences… well, we are promising (officially) to blog a lot more.. so much info to share with the new brides…
Â So why was 2008 so amazing?? There are a lot of reasons for it… from personalization of our events, to our professional mixing capabilities…. 2008 ended (culminated) and 2009 started with our biggest bash of the year – The DownTown Countdown… the New Year’s Eve celebration at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Atlanta. This was our 4th year performing and the number of people who came down was amazing! Last year there were approximately 3500 people… can’t wait to hear the official count for the 2008 countdown… Photos will be posted on our site, here. I can not tell you how many people came up to the DJ booth at that event to tell us how much fun they were having… some samples are below… we are thinking we will be the main act in 2009… keep ya posted!
Music samples from our New Years Eve bash can be sampled here.
Three days later, on January 5th, we sponsored the largest bridal show in the Southeast, the Elite Events Georgia Bridal Show…. I was honored to be chosen as an expert panelist, and was able to answer questions fielded from brides regarding music styles, dj choices, etc. Our booth was bombarded by brides wanting to know more about our services. It was a truly busy day. Phew! Approximately 700 brides came through the doors, and we have almost 300 requests for more information – including a DJ for Cabo San Lucas – now that is what I am talking about! I have to give props to one our favorite video specialists – Dustin, from indyproductions… while he was not in attendance at the event, brides still marvelled over his creations.. you can see his wedding video demo on his blog here…
Another great way to start off the year was being asked by Brides Magazine to write an article about music styles and wedding personalization – past and present. That magazine is expected to hit the shelves mid to late January. I will post a link to that as soon as it is out…
Â Finally… have you heard about the movie “Bride Wars” starring Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway? Lethal Rhythms was honored to be chosen as the corporate sponsor for the sneak preview on January 8th at Phipps Theatre. We will be giving away an IPod full of our own specialized remixes of the top dance hits in hip hop, top 40, the classics, etc. Below is the first invite… Our recap will definitely follow!
