2013 was Awesome and 2014 Already Looks Record Breaking!

With the incredible year Bob the DJ had in 2013 as a host, DJ, auctioneer, invisible man, MC, Santa elf and more, thanking all who made it possible is not enough! I had more site visits by far than in 2012 and added Indonesia, Ecuador, Norway and Russia to the “curious-about-Bob” list. Already in 2014 I am on a pace to more than double those checking out what I can do for their event. Also, I added Karaoke, a bartending service and two new packages to my offerings. We’re going to have a terrific year!

Just this past weekend I was able to contribute some fund raising skills {impromptu style – as I seem to do best} on stage at the Living Well Benefit for Cancer Research. Not only did I use his mic, but was able to meet and chit chat with Nashville’s hottest rising star, Chris Cavanaugh, along with his band. Great guys (and talented too!).

Remember this guy - Chris Cavanaugh

Remember this guy, he’s going to be huge! – Chris Cavanaugh

So stick around folks, it only gets better and I hope to include you in it! Here’s to relief and fun in 2014!

2013 Spells Fun!

Welcome 2013! And an exciting year is already planned for fans of Bob the DJ. New events, upgraded events and classic events are all beckoning those who have enjoyed the fun over the years and for those looking to enjoy new things too. From private parties to out-of-town gigs, count on hearing my voice all around the town.

Of course, in my continued evolution, I am excited to announce the addition of some new toys to my equipment wares. A visually stimulating, cutting edge, built-in LED display coffin case is now my main mount for my command center. With solid, strobing, fading, flashing and blending effects that can be timed or responding to music, in a variety of color choices, I have been complimented and how it adds to the life and energy of the event.

I want to give a big thanks to all who have supported and requested BTDJ to do the events they love. Looking forward to seeing you this year so please make sure to stop by to say hello!

2011 in review

Hey Thanks everyone for visiting! Over 1400 people from around the world {no one from Antartica or my other home continent of Australia though – dang}, but this is cool. The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog. Feel free to check it out, Bob the DJ has gone global!

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 23 trips to carry that many people.

A Remarkable Year this 2011

Everyone loves Gelato International Fest 2011

Every year opens up new venues and experiences for me. This year I was fortunate enough to be included in the VFW’s Memorial Day Ceremonies at Evergreen Cemetary after the parade. Very moving.

In addition to the Fashion Show for the Chamber (a blast), a slew of graduation parties [with some great caterers as well – call me for recommendations], an extraordinary collection of Concours events {VIP Presentation (nice), Road Rally (way cool), Gala (always amazing) and the Porsche Ride and Drive (awesome!!)}, a barage of beautiful weddings [each one unique], some annual company picnics and Bob & Marianne’s private car show {incredible}, there was the

Cheng Da Chinese Drummers

Rotary’s impressive International Fest[fantastic talent and shows, great vendors and cuisine, activities, and of course music & hosting]{visit my photo gallery}.

Cruise Night lent a hand again at making the summer great for all it’s fans and afficianados in it’s 8th year. We even had a Flash Mob! [the good kind that sings and dances].

What’s left? Plenty, so come back in a few to find out. I’ll do my best to get photos your way, but hopefully you’ll have an event of your own that we can experience first hand and I’ll post pictures for everyone else to see!

Always at your service,

Maestro Bob the DJ

Wedding Season All Year Long

We have kicked off 2011 with a passion. A passion for weddings! My darling roadie [my wife Joanne] and I have have just returned from a wedding gig in beautiful Destin, FL where I performed at the San Destin Resort for a lovely bride & groom [see the wonderful testimonial they wrote] and their entourage. With road trip stops along the way in Memphis [on the way down] and Chattanooga [on the way back] our 40 hour 5 day sojourn brought great smiles, fun times and a flat out blast! The 86 degree sunshine on the Gulf of Mexico in March for this Chicago boy didn’t prove to be too miserable either.

With several exciting weddings scheduled this year and a variety of new and interesting gigs coming up, like the Chamber Fashion Show, Kite Day at Citizen’s Park, the VFW Memorial Day Parade, International Day, Carpentersville Fest, ShelterBox Challenge, the Concours’ Road Rally (and Awards Show again), and a few surprize parties I can’t mention, 2011 is going to be fantastic! And, of course, all the regular gigs are back and I have some new fun planned for them as well.  Always happy to share good times.

Here's to ya

Curran Contracting’s Big Night

Curran Casino Night 2011

The big annual event for Curran Contracting welcomed back Bob the DJ for the second straight year. In addition to be a great night repeating last year’s popular casino night theme, it marked the launch of the new system. Phenomenal! Smooth as silk, crisp and clean, and power to provide sound where needed all describe how it worked out. Check the Photo Gallery to see more. Thanks for visiting.
