1000 people dance to Cotton Eyed Joe

Most people don’t invite 3500 guests to their wedding reception, but wouldn’t it be nice to know your DJ could handle it if you did?

It was my privilege to be the DJ for the New York State Odyssey of the Minds finals. With about 1500 students competing, there were an estimated 3500 people assembled to see the final awards. When I played Cotton Eyed Joe, I pulled out my phone to take a quick video.

Johnny Only’s Photo Booth at your wedding reception

I have never seen people laugh harder than they do in our photo booth! People dance more when they are laughing and that makes our photo booth a perfect icebreaker to help get your party going! Includes unlimited sittings, a helpful professional attendant, scrapbook/photo-guestbook supplies, dress up props, customizable text on header and footer of strips, duplicate strips for each sitting and high resolution digital copies of all the images for you (the hosts) at the end.

If you watch(ed) the Bat Mitzvah Demo Video on Vimeo from Creative Video, you can see they are quite different from weddings. There are lot’s of games and group dances for the kids at a Bar/Bat Mitzvah reception. I am the MC/DJ working behind all of the dancing and party shots. if you want to see my face, check the 3:14 mark.

Being your DJ & MC is an art-form

I believe that being a DJ/MC is an art-form beyond the function of just a job or an income. Yes it is my job and my income, – but also an art-form whose function is to edify the public and to take people to a higher place, so I give my all to satisfy your unique needs and tastes as well as those of your guests.

Wedding guests love surprises!

Wedding guests always love something different or unexpected. Two guests are pictured below serenading the bride and groom with an acoustic guitar accompanied love song. They got a standing ovation from the entire room!
