On Saturday, November 14, 2015, we (PRO Event DJ) had a the privilege of performing for something…a little different. No fancy clubs, no lounges (although adult beverages were served), but it did feel as though I was at a mini music festival. Let’s back up for a minute… A few months ago, I met someone from the music industry who set out on a mission to teach kids about dance music culture through a business venture called Mini House Club (way cooler than Mickey Mouse Club, which is still cool btw).
When we met, we talked about her ideas to teach kids about music, DJ culture, etc. and of course, this piqued my interest. For those of you who don’t know, I have two little boys ages 5 and 3 at the time of this writing who love to “DJ” with daddy. They are extremely proficient at pushing buttons, turning nobs, sliding sliders, and scratching records. By proficient, I mean they are really good at doing all of these things as fast as they can…and you know what? It’s perfect. I absolutely love the time I spend with my kids learning about music and its endless possibilities.
On Saturday, Mini House Club put together a “kids dance party” complete with a DJ Lab for the kids (compliments of Wilson from the upcoming Vinyl Arts Bar), Glojel (gel-based paint that glows under a blacklight), henna tattoos, spray paint art, kid-yoga, food, drinks, and of course, dance music. I was responsible for playing about 2 hours of dance music that was both kid-friendly (nothing explicit), but also stuck to the theme of electronic dance music. At the request of Mini House Club, I recorded the set and posted the live recording as a Jailbreak Session! You can expect to hear some classic house music peppered with today’s hits – remixed.
The event was located at True Serenity and a few pictures have been posted below:
