Penn Alumni Party Like It’s 2002!


The University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) holds a special place in all of The Remixologists’ hearts.  We all started our respective DJ careers on campus and have literally logged thousands of hours DJ’ing parties for student organizations, fraternities, sororities, museums, and university groups.   We’ve become one of UPenn’s go-to DJ companies for homecoming and reunion weekend, and I (DJ Mike) was extremely excited when the University asked me to DJ the 10-year reunion for the class of 2002.  While I always look forward to returning to campus and DJ’ing for my alma mater, this event would be even more special, given that it was the 10-year reunion of our very own DJ 9-Volt (Tristan).

The reunion was held on campus at the World Café Live!, and DJ 9-Volt and I made sure that everyone in attendance was able to dance the night away to many of the tracks we rocked during their undergraduate days.  Not only was it great seeing so many long-time friends and familiar faces, but it was also priceless being able to play some “classics” from artists such as Shanice, Fat Joe, Cam’ron, DJ Sammy, Mario, Missy, Aaliyah, Nelly, Puff Daddy, City High, B2K, Cutty Ranks, N’ Sync, the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, and Michael Jackson (just to name a few).


Ally & Matt’s Hotel Monaco Wedding In Alexandria!


When Ally and Matt first booked with us, I (DJ Mike) already knew that their wedding was going to be a blast.  Their reception was going to be held at the Hotel Monaco in Virginia, a location that combined the historic charm and lively culture of Old Town Alexandria.  Before the wedding, Ally and Matt told me that their family and friends all love to dance, but little did I know just how crazy the dance party was going to be!  We ended up shuffling around the schedule and having the cake cutting earlier in the evening, since many guests were getting restless during dinner and wanted to get the party started as soon as possible.  (Of course, I was more than happy to oblige!)

And once the party started, it never ended.  DJ 9-Volt and I rocked a mix of Motown, funk, top 40,  90’s hip hop, Michael Jackson, and Madonna, and we even threw down Call Me Maybe twice (at the bride’s request, of course).  The bridesmaids were well-prepared and were dancing in flip-flops for most of the evening, and many of the guests were wiping sweat off their brows by the time we were playing the last song of the evening…definitely signs of a great party and a successful evening!
