This was our second time working with the Rudorfer family, we did Samantha’s event three years ago at The Brooklake Country Club.

It’s always cool working in a club to change up the scenery a bit. For a DJ, patching our equipment into a huge state of the art sound system and light show makes you feel a little like a “diva for a day,” especially with signs like this around.

I had come over a few weeks before to help them with a few steps. They were awesome.

The Diva Lounge has a really cool way to spice up dessert. They have “The Candy Man make a special guest appearance and throw out candy to all the kids. He was a big hit! We played “Buttercup” by The Foundations and had everyone singing along.

It brought them to tears. The club showed the montage on 8 different plasmas and a huge drop-down, projection screen so all of the 200 guests had a great view regardless of where they were in the club.

Special thanks to Lauren and Vinny from the Diva Lounge for their hospitality and professionalism.
