Battery Gardens Wedding!
We here at The Remixologists pride ourselves on being able to multitask. We like to believe that we can do anything for any couple that calls on us. We’ve been DJ’s, emcees, bakers, photographers, audio technicians, video specialists…we even once had a DJ who decided he wanted to be both the DJ and the groom (*ahem* Taiga). Well, I (9-Volt) decided to add to that list by attempting the Best Man/DJ combo/Emcee for my college roommate, Gary’s, Battery Gardens Wedding. Fortunately, rather than leave me to attempt this insanity, DJ Mike was able to come up and handle the DJ/Emcee responsibilities so that I could focus on being the best Best Man I could be (and honestly, we’re all glad he did).
Susan and Gary were married on August 11th at the Battery Gardens in New York City. Though the dancing was cut a bit short, DJ Mike was able to rock the crowd with a mix of Motown and Top 40. In fact, despite only being able to spin for about 40 minutes, DJ Mike kept everyone on the floor the entire time, so 40 minutes felt like 2 hours.
I’ve decided to dedicate Volume 40 of the DJ 9-Volt collection to Susan and Gary. I recorded it in the studio as though it was me who spun the wedding. The first few tracks were the entrance songs for the Bridal Party and the final song was the couple’s first dance. The mix’s title, “Music, Joy, and Love” is a nod to the toast I delivered in their honor. Check out the mix and more pictures from the wedding below!
Congratulations, Susan and Gary. Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day.. Go Quakers!

MULTICULTURAL INDIAN WEDDING DANCE PARTY!
We first posted about Rohit & Pia’s awesome multicultural Indian wedding awhile back with a bunch of pictures (see here). Now we have a short old-school feeling wedding highlight video courtesy of James Sengul. Check out the fabulous details of the wedding and the raucous dancing that went on! We played everything from Stevie Wonder, Notorious BIG, Rihanna, Michael Jackson to Bhangra & Bollywood hits mixed in for a great dance party by all. Everybody looked pretty sweaty by the time the evening was done, but they all left with smiles on their faces!
And I wish I could end every night with a visit to the elaborate dessert table & ice cream sandwich cart! 🙂
AAJA trivia bowl at ABC TV1 Studios
This is an oldie but goodie! I (Taiga) was invited to spin for the AAJA’s (Asian American Journalists Association) inaugural Trivia Bowl at the ABC TV1 Studio in NYC where they currently film The Chew. You can check out pictures and more tidbits from the event here. Another fun fact… the space the Trivia Bowl was in used to be the set where they filmed the original “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” with good old Regis Philbin. Anyways, thank you for your kind words AAJA!

Jess & Meggie’s Overlook Lodge at Bear Mountain Wedding!
I (Taiga) had so much fun helping Jess & Meggie celebrate their wedding at the Overlook Lodge in Bear Mountain, NY last year (thankfully I did not see any bears up close)! They were so nice throughout the whole planning process and gracious to me on their wedding day. I really enjoyed spinning for them and their family and friends as they danced the night away!

Dear DJ Taiga and The Remixologists,
Thank you for your amazing DJ and sound services at our 1st Annual Night Market in downtown New York on April 13, 2012. You provided the beats and the funk to get the crowd moving and swaying throughout the night. With a mind-numbing 500+ people in attendance, you guys were professional and fun and we really appreciated that. We heard many people tell us positive comments about the music and the vibe and we can’t thank you enough. I highly recommend DJ Taiga to other organizations that are looking for a fly DJ and look forward to working with you guys again soon.
