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!

Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010. The United States Small Business Administration (SBA) became a co-sponsor in 2011. The traditional day for Small Business Saturday appears between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

In today’s world, many small mom-and-pop businesses have added online services to customers that formerly patronized their services but have since moved to other areas around the world. Either look online for your favorite small business or visit the store in person to begin shopping for the holiday season. Small businesses will have signs displayed encouraging people to shop small in the local community.

Statistics computed by the National Retail Foundation suggest that approximately two million more will shop between Black Friday and Cyber Monday compared to 2020. Don’t forget the local businesses in your community. They are also offering special services and deals while competing with the name brand stores services that appear online.

Besides shopping at local retailers, don’t forget the other small businesses that also reside in the region such as DJ services.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the time of their lives celebrating with Elese Merkovsky and Michael Tressa in the Aspen Room at Toftrees Resort. Their reception followed their wedding nuptials at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center on Penn State’s main campus which was performed by the bride’s uncle, Reverend Paul Merkovsky. Elese wore a stunning sleeveless, lace gown while Mike sported a blue suit and maroon flowered tie. The bridesmaids were arrayed in navy blue, sleeveless gowns, and the groomsmen were attired in gray suits, light blue shirts, and dark ties.

McCarthy Flowers created sensational flower arrangements that were displayed in the Aspen Room alongside the lovely bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages held or worn by family and friends. The bride and groom cut a charming wedding cake created by the bride’s aunt. Elese and Mike had a magnificent display of candy and cookies for friends and family to box and take home in celebration of their wedding nuptials. Toftrees’ Katie Clegg along with her staff were absolutely fabulous mixing and pouring drinks, creating fabulous displays of hors d’oeuvres and later sliders, and serving the scrumptious meal entrees to guests.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment kept the guests dancing and having fun the entire night. After introductions, Elese and Mike performed their first dance to Francis & The Lights featuring Chance The Rapper’s “May I Have This Dance.” While dancing in front of the big windows in the Aspen Room, the bride and groom showed off their exciting dance moves. The bride then danced with her father to Rascal Flatts’ “My Wish.” Next, Mike took the stage with his mother dancing to “When I Look At the Sky” by Train. Mike has an incredible sense of humor, and it showed while cutting the rug with his mom. Later, Elese, Mike, family and friends laughed, sang, shouted, and had an incredible night dancing to the sounds of And We Danced DJ Entertainment. The last song of the night truly expressed the feelings of the happy couple, (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.

Mike and Elese met in State College while working for a local television station. They began dating a few months later. The couple moved to Chicago and continued their romance. Mike proposed to Elese at her favorite vacation destination, the Outer Banks in North Carolina. After celebrating, they decided that the best place to hold their wedding ceremony and reception would be in the town that they first met each other, State College, Pennsylvania. Now, their new adventure as man and wife begins.

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

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of providing sound and music for the marriage of Sash Schaeffer and Bo Hickey at the lovely Belle Mountain Estates. The couple met in Philadelphia when Sash was attending Temple University and Bo was working at the University of Pennsylvania. Bo’s grandfather, Ray Kauffman, performed the charmingly warm ceremony under the sunflower and flora festooned trellis arch. The bride wore a beautiful sleeveless, lace, mermaid style gown with train. Sash’s bridesmaids were attired in fabulous sleeveless, dusty blue gowns. Bo and his groomsmen sported navy blue suits with debonair dusty blue ties.

Since Bo and Sash live in Texas, they wanted a little western theme incorporated into their wedding day. The bride and her bridesmaids carried a delightful arrangement of sunflowers, baby’s breath and greenery created by Forever in Bloom. Charlene’s Cake Company crafted the gorgeous, three tiered wedding cake along with red velvet, chocolate and strawberry cupcakes. Mission BBQ presented a bounteous assortment of hors d’oeuvres, and a delicious buffet for all to partake and enjoy. Diane Kovach of DB Impressions Photography was the wonderful photographer that captured the couple’s first dance and all the enchanting moments throughout the day and night.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment furnished the heavenly tunes for all to enjoy that night. Bo and Sash begin their night dancing to “Best Shot” by Jimmie Allen. Following their first dance, Sash, Bo and their bridal party enticed family and friends to get up and dance with Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance.” A memorable moment occurred when Bo was dancing with his mother to “A Mother’s Prayer” by Melissa DuVall. Sash was watching the moment on the side of the dance floor when Bo’s mom invited her to dance with them. It was an amazing moment to see the three dancing. As the song began to fade, mom placed Sash’s hand in her son’s.

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

The mother/son dance quickly followed which was beautiful to see. The groom, his mother, personal friends, and family danced a lively Bollywood song. Next came the impressive first dance. It was apparent that Diljot and Amy practiced and choreographed their first dance to “Is That Alright?” by Lady Gaga. It was spectacular!!! Amy followed tradition and danced the “Bridal Dance.” She also added a special dance for people celebrating memorable anniversaries with the “Anniversary Waltz.”
