Jaclyn and Nick were married at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum and we were honored to be a part of their big day with DJ services.

Here is a short video of what the storm looked like (that's Gavin running to save three sound setups from water damage).
Luckily, being professionals, we travel with backup equipment and we were able to reset and dry everything in record time :) These photos by Anna Delores www.annadelores.com prove that nothing could stop this amazing partyl!

Victoria and Adam had their most amazing wedding at the Santa Barbara Zoo. We were excited to be a part of it with DJ and Karaoke services. Karaoke does not always pair with weddings, but when it does, oh what a fun time to be had by all! Here is a video of the bride and groom kicking off the night with a duet :)
Guests were invited to sing a song as a table first, before their table could be excused to the buffet. This broke the ice which had them wanting more. It was a 100% Karaoke wedding at the Zoo <3
Congratulations Victoria and Adam!! Thank you for having us be a part of your big day :)
