And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of DJing with Silent Sound System at the Pennsylvania Bus Association’s fun-filled Silent Disco reception at the Wyndham Garden State College.  A Silent Disco is a music filled event with DJs mixing music and guests wearing headphones that minimize noise pollution and disturbance.  Guests wear headphones and have access to three separate transmissions of music from three separate DJs.  If they do not like the song on one channel, they may change to another and continue singing and dancing.  The only people that know what is being played by the DJ are the people wearing headphones tuned into a specific channel.  The colors seen on each headphone set indicate what DJ they are listening to at that time.

Silent Discos became popular during the nineties when raves were causing music disturbances to neighbors.  Today, they are being utilized in a variety of businesses.  A backpack is also available that provides the feeling of a subwoofer.  The bass of a song is transmitted to a person wearing the backpack.  So, the thumping beat can be felt even though no speakers are being utilized to transmit the music.

The Pennsylvania Bus Association is a nonprofit organization representing private bus companies.  They represent the business and governmental interests of private bus companies that operate in Pennsylvania.  One of their missions is to promote motorcoach travel through tourism or charter service.  Each year they have an annual meeting.  This year, Happy Valley Adventure Bureau helped create the four-day event with a variety of fun-filled experiences alongside business opportunities.

Each guest was given headphones to wear and taught how to tune into the three different channels.  They then gravitated to the dance floor and began to dance.  It was fun to watch the different colors on the headphones intermix on the dance floor.  One person might be dancing to a song the blue channel and another on the red or green.  It didn’t matter what color guests listened to at the time, but all were dancing and having fun.

Thank you, Silent Sound System and the Pennsylvania Bus Association for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be part of your amazing event!

The Mane Style coiffed the bride, bridal party, and bride’s mother. Bob Lambert captured those beautiful and glorious moments between the bride, groom, family, and friends throughout the day and evening.

Noah and Haley love the classic songs spanning from the 1960s through the 1980s in addition to modern classics. Haley belonged to a swing dance club in college, and many of her friends showed that they could jitterbug and perform ballroom dancing moves. Noah and Haley began the night dancing to Etta James’ “Sunday Kind of Love.” And We Danced DJ Entertainment opened the dance floor, and friends and family began to shake their booty to the music. Noah requested the “Chicken Dance” be played, and he shook his feathers alongside Haley, family, and friends to the timely classic. Haley’s grandfather, who is in a wheelchair, led the dancers in a conga line around the room. Throughout the night, guests were laughing, smiling, and dancing to the beat. In the end, family and friends congregated around Noah & Haley while they danced their final dance of the night.

Thank you, Haley and Noah for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your wedding day festivities. Good luck as you begin your new life as husband and wife!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment was 1,809 feet above sea level while providing sound, lights, emceeing and music for Katie Foytik and Kurtis Webb’s marriage and reception at Harrison’s Above the Valley Event Center in Centre Hall on August 11th. Katie wore a stunning off-white, sleeveless gown with a beaded bodice. Her sparkly, gold sequined tennis shoes were a marvelous pairing to her ensemble. Katie held a beautiful bouquet of light orange roses offset by a collection of white flowers.  Kurtis and his groomsmen wore black suits with white shirts.

Katie was escorted down the aisle by her father. Joshua Wallace of Milton, PA was the officiant for the ceremony. Katie was traditional for most of the ceremony, but she was untraditional for the recessional. She surprised her husband by having And We Danced DJ Entertainment play “Fly, Eagles, Fly” for the recessional, since Kurtis is a BIG fan of the Philadelphia Eagles . When he heard the beginning of the song, his jaw dropped, and he quickly turned to Katie with a stunned expression! Before leaving the room, he shouted E-A-G-L-E-S at the end of the song and left to take some stunning photos with the view at Above the Valley!

Kurtis and Katie met through a social app. Her theme for the wedding was gold, white and pink. Dolce Vita Desserts provided an enticing array of cupcake flavors for the event along with the beautiful white cake that Kurtis and Katie cut together to celebrate the day. Shannon Susi was the photographer for the Foytik-Webb marriage day.

While Kurtis and Katie were preparing to feed each other a piece of cake, the crowd was asked if the couple would be nice while feeding each other the piece of cake. Kurtis and Katie were not nice and had icing smeared on their faces. And We Danced asked if they would kiss, and Kurtis promptly made sure that Katie had more icing than he did while kissing!

Thank you Kurtis and Katie for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your marriage ceremony and reception. Good luck in your new life as husband and wife!
