A 50th Gala At Emerson Resort and Spa

Emerson Resort and Spa, The Catskills, Mt. Tremper NY

The Review

“Lou was an amazing DJ for my wife’s 50th birthday party. Having never hired a DJ for such an important event, I [Dan] had quite a bit of trepidation. Lou, did an incredible job of guiding me through much of the entire planning process, even apart from the music. He is concise, communicative, open and honest. Well worth every penny spent. The night of the party, Lou was conduit to the attendees enjoying themselves, he didn’t become the focal point. There was not corny games, calling out people to dance, none of that. Just a professional, playing a great mix, reading the room and making everyone happy. Exactly what we were looking for.”

My Observations

My services are not just for weddings and every once in a while a really fun event comes your way and you can’t say no. In this case it was Jen’s surprise 50th birthday being thrown by her husband Dan, and when he mentioned lots of Hip-Hop, R&B, and Reggae I definitely could not resist.
