Emily & Scott :: Arlington Sheraton Plaza on the Hill

Going back to the Arlington Sheraton, and specifically the “Plaza on the Hill”, always brings back fond memories of childhood.  Many people don’t know this, but decades ago the city of Arlington tried their hand at running a Marine Park.  The history of “Seven Seas” is very brief (it was only open for a year or two), but I do remember visiting as a child.  And, up until the 90′s, the Sheraton still had the Spanish Galleon ship on it’s property by the pool.  If you take a look at a map of Seven Seas, you can still do a bit of treasure hunting and locate the same buildings still standing on the Sheraton Property.  Their “Plaza on the Hill” is one of those!

The facility is truly unique, with a center dance floor and string lights over head.  That does present a bit of an acoustical challenge – getting sound to the dance floor without overpowering the guests around the perimeter, but we’ve got that down to an art!

Scott and Emily were a fun couple to work with, and came to me because I DJ’d the wedding for Scott’s sister back in 2008.

Another bonus was getting to work with Dwayne Lee of Southern Flair Photography.  Dwayne is a long-time industry friend, and truly a master at his craft.  (And you’ll see from the photos below that I’m no photographer!)

Table cards - add a little fun to your seating!

NBC at the Omni Mandalay

We’ve had the pleasure these past two years to DJ the annual Holiday party for NBC and Telemundo.  This year, like last, it was hosted at the Omni Mandalay hotel in Las Colinas.  The night was a mix of holiday jazz and lounge music (Kontor is one of my favorite artists for this genre), for dinner, moving into a variety of party music, Dance, as well as Latin selections of Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, and the like.  We had a blast!

The evening was scheduled to conclude at 11pm, but extended to 12 midnight.  Yes, it was a fun night!

Thank you, NBC!
