It's holiday party season, and sometimes you don't always want to host a party revolving around Christmas tunes. If you are in the position of hosting your company's annual holiday party this year, we offer a great, unique alternative to your typical Christmas party. We have a resident music master on the team who specializes in decade parties!
Over the last four years, J Clark Anderson has been one of our most requested DJ’s. In 2014 he performed at over 70 events and consistently received positive feedback from clients and vendors. J Clark is our guest blogger today and talks about one his favorite style of special events….Decades Parties!
From J Clark Anderson:
I have been working in Nashville’s Event Industry for nearly four years, and my 1st, 2nd and 3rd priorities at every event is to make sure EVERYONE is having the time of their life! That’s the main reason I pursued this profession. Everyone at the party is looking at the DJ for a good time…To play that perfect song that, as Jon Acuff so poetically said at our National DJ conference one year, “…takes your clients where they want to go.” That is the challenge that I most enjoy facing on a weekly basis; and most of the time, minute by minute. Without a doubt, every request, every sway of every room, every song that is played, will take you and your guests where you need to go…and that makes a celebration out of this world!!!
Now the majority of events I perform are weddings. That is indeed our specialty, but we are certainly not limited to just being Wedding DJ’s. It brings all of us at Snyder Entertainment just as much joy to bring THE party to Corporate Events, Birthday Parties, and any other Specialized Event or Party that you are wanting to create. And there is one particular party that always extracts that extra bit of creativity from everyone on the guest list. Yes, I’m talking about a DECADES PARTY!!!
Decades Parties have become very popular. We are reaching back to remember, and more importantly, relive a time that we enjoyed. And it’s not just about the music. Many of these parties are themed towards T.V. shows, movies, Pop Culture Icons, anything you can imagine that would be fun for dressing up. Think about it…Can you imagine Marty McFly, Mr. T, Top Gun, and other icons from the 80’s attending your party!!! How RAD is that?!?!
I, myself, was born in 1984 and grew up in the 90’s, but going through Middle School and High School, I always gravitated towards most things that came out of the 80’s. The movies I watched, from Karate Kid to The Breakfast Club, the music I listened to, from Poison to Tears For Fears, I was just more of an 80’s kind-a-guy. Born one decade too late, I always used to say, but that’s okay, because it is now considered a premier party to go to these days! Being invited to an 80’s Party…or a 70’s Party…or a Roaring 20’s Party is like being invited to The Party of the Year!!
And that is where Snyder Entertainment can take your Decades Party to a whole new level. As far as the music is concerned, consider it covered. All DJ’s with Snyder Entertainment are subscribed to music services where we can attain every song you can imagine. We organize our music in many different ways, from Genre to Decades, and Easy Listening Cocktail Music to Mood Setting Music. And when it comes to our Planning Website, that’s where the magic of the night starts to take form. You can prioritize the songs for your decade into “Must Play” categories, and you can choose to mark off the songs that just don’t fit into “Do Not Play” categories. We put the power at your fingertips, and offer guidance along the way whenever you need it.
Also, when there is this much fun going on at your party, it must be documented with pictures and videos! And guess what, we can help out with that too!! You can check out Snyder Entertainments previous blog on “5 Reasons You Need A Photo Booth At Your Party”, but can you also imagine all that you could capture by having one of our Photo Booths at your Decades Party? The possibilities are endless when it comes to having our booth or our Instagram Print Station. Finally, do not forget about lighting, we can transform any space into an lighting spectacle.
Think about this for a moment…everyone spends their childhood and teen years trying to grow up fast. And when we’re all grown up, we spend most of our time trying to be young again!! Well, I say we shouldn’t waste another minute. If you are looking to throw a party for whatever the occasion might be, and you want to make it a Decades Party, call Snyder Entertainment and we’ll take you “Back to the Future” to the good times…and recreate the experiences of a lifetime.
