Creative Dance DJ in Cambridge

Last Friday Night I had the opportunity to be the creative dance DJ at Dance Friday in Cambridge, MA. After four years as creative dance DJ at Barefoot Boogie in NYC, I miss providing great and eclectic music for movement and dance at a venue like Dance Friday.

We seek to explore ways to show our commitment to the acceptance of and respect for all people and cultures, the empowerment of children, and the acknowledgement that our bodies and our environment are sacred. We recognize the need for each of us to be able to safely express who we are and be acknowledged for the value of the contributions that each of us brings to this community.

The Wedding DJ Goes With The Flow

Last weekend I was professional Wedding DJ for a young couple.  The Bride whose father has passed away had asked me initially if we could choose not to have a version of The Father-Daughter Dance. I invited her to reflect on it and not make a decision till the last minute. She repeated her wish not to do so, although I again suggested she ask an Uncle or a close friend of the family.


We had some email contact the night before and she again stated she did to want to do the dance. I supported her decision and reminded them that they still had not chosen a song for the Parents Introductions before the Bridal Party Introductions. Of course, it was the night before and they had more important things to worry about and I was OK with knowing I may have to improvise a bit the next day. I got to know them well enough through all of our conversations to have a sense of what they may appreciate. They were struggling with making choices on their music as I continued to offer them suggestions as their Wedding DJ.  I’ve been doing this a long time as a professional Wedding DJ and trust in my skills and experience.


The Ceremony went beautifully and The Bride looked like a living magazine cover. The Groom actually looked really nice himself.  During the Cocktail Hour, The Bride and Groom approached me and asked if she would be able to do a Father-Daughter Dance with her Uncle. I smiled and assured them it would be fine. We quickly discussed what song they would dance to and landed with Michael Buble’s version of “How Sweet It Is”. She was very happy that she would be able dance with him and it all worked out. I then reminded them we still need a song for the parents to be introduced. I suggested some Motown songs and we determined Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” would be perfect.  We never want it to be like this at a wedding without a plan for any of the traditional dances or Introductions but a good professional Wedding DJ goes with the flow and supports the needs of The Bride and Groom.

The introductions and dances all went magnificently. The Reception was fun and everybody had a great time! I know I write this all the time but I feel like I get to work with the best Brides and Grooms. Next up is Wedding DJ for a Bride and Groom who live in South Carolina but used to live in New Jersey on Sunday and The Hoboken International Film Festival on Friday Night in Jersey City.

DJ Mystical Michael Live at Barefoot Boogie NYC Tonight

Like most professional Wedding and Event DJs, I tend to look forward to DJ opportuntities that I can give back to the community and offer our DJ services as a volunteer. I work a lot of fundraisers as DJ but not always able to do them completely volunteered, often there is a small fee to cover expenses. Tonight at the Barefoot Boogie is a freebie!

The Barefoot Boogie is a freestyle dance which happens twice a month in New York City. We offer a relaxed, smoke-free and alcohol-free environment where folks can freely express themselves in movement. From our pool of talented DJs, two spin each dance. Each of our DJs has his or her own distinctive style, but one thing you can rely on is that atevery Boogie you’ll hear a wide variety of music: R&B, World, Funk, Tribal, Hip Hop, Ambient, Reggae, House, African, Electronica, Disco, Rock, Techno, Drum & Bass, etc.

One of the best parts is that I get to have fun and dance as a bonus. As the wedding and event seasons start to pick up, my availability lessens. This may be my last chance for me to DJ at the Barefoot Boogie for a while, unless I have a last minute cancellation or something.


Tonight I will play an eclectic mix of R&B, Pop, Dance, Hip Hop, Rock, Arabic, African and Latin rhythms with who knows what else mixed in. The Barefoot Boogie attracts a very diverse an creative bunch of movers and dancers that appreciate music that is not heard elsewhere or often. I can do that and cherish the opportinty when presented. As a special bonus, I get to meet with one of my friends, also another Barefoot Boogie Coordinator for dinner beforehand. Should be a fun night!

DJ Mystical Michael at Barefoot Boogie Saturday Night 3/24

With Spring bringing sun, warmth, green and flowers, it also delivers the end of the down season for a professional DJ. I have had the opportunity to offer my DJ services at several volunteer situations in New Jersey & New York during this period. This Saturday night may be the last of the season. Tomorrow night I will DJ again at The Barefoot Boogie in NYC. For the last one and a half years I have been the Coordinator of Teachers and DJs at Barefoot Boogie. I enjoy being involved with such a positive and fun organization that is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year!


I have been reflecting all week on what music I may play tomorrow night as DJ. So far I am feeling some Hip Hop, Reggae, Reggaeton, Rock, New Wave, Oldies, R&B, Pop, Arabic, Salsa and some mood music like Buddha Bar and Ambient rhythms.  I seem to always add an African jam or two as well. There will be an Alexander Technique class from 8:30-9:30 with freestyle dancing and DJ music the rest of the night at Barefoot Boogie. Should be a great night!


I have been very busy meeting with Brides, Grooms and other event planners hiring me to be their professional Wedding DJ and Event DJ all over New Jersey, New York & Pennsylvania.  It is fun and inspiring hearing about the fun Weddings and Events I will DJ in the near future. My schedule for 2012 and 2013 are starting to fill up quickly. Life is good as a professional Wedding DJ and Party DJ in New Jersey & New York. Looking forward to a night of fun and great DJ Music at Barefoot Boogie.
