Halloween events I'm DJing

Halloween is my favorite time of year, when I can go outside and not be considered a freak!

Here are some fun events I’m DJing this October:

Thursday October 17th: Black Tie Power Couples Fundraiser at the Utah Museum of Modern Art, with honored guests from Utah Opera, Ballet West, and the Utah Symphony.

Saturday October 26th: Jason Olsen’s annual Utah Pride Center Halloween Fundraiser at SoundWell. More details to come, but here’s a video from the party 2 years ago, you don’t want to miss this!

Thursday October 31st: Gracies 10th annual Halloween Costume Contest with over $1500 in cash and prizes! Here’s a video from last year’s party.

The first Halloween I can remember was in Dallas back in ‘97. If it weren’t for everyone being dressed up I may not have had the courage to go out, and I never would have met Sol at my first Rave where I fell in love with electronic music and started forming the idea I wanted to DJ.

DJ set in my basement

If I had the time I would do this all day every day . . . mixing music together on the fly, coming up with new combos and experimenting. Some of this music is from when I started DJing at Gracie’s back in 2012 . . . some is more current, some older from when I used to go clubbing in London . . . a lot of this music is nostalgic and has special significance to me . . .

Playing Sax while DJing

I have been playing the saxophone for a long time, and absolutely love playing the sax while I’m DJing. Nothing’s better than the energy of actual musical instruments, which is why I often DJ with a live drummer . . . DJing for me is also a form of improvisation . . . mixing different beats, samples and acapellas together, using DJ tools and effects to change and morph the music into something completely new. The other day I was DJing at a bar and some patrons insisted that I play more sax . . . here’s a little video from that night:
