Here is a girl with talent and I had her in my studio! I had the priviledge of meeting this young superstar and her family. She sang a song called "Glorious." Listen for it soon on your local Christian radio stations. She also does R & B tunes. Her voice has a sweet tone to it. I am now a fan. The pics that I took are here: http://www.keysdan.com/2007-10-12_Katherine_Kole_Recording_Session.html

This was a job for DJ Otto. He did a great job for me. The bride and groom were very satisfied. I had no doubt. I have done quite a few events at Tranquility Bay. The staff there is right on time. Top notch! DJ Otto took a few pics. I posted them here: http://www.keysdan.com/2007-10-06_Patrick_Gwen_Wedding.html
Public Service Message: Plan well. It will help assure a great time.
If you are going to have a wedding in the keys, and you want to treat your family and friends in style. Lo-Key might be the place for you. I had been by so many times and never knew what was behind that gate. I am so glad that I now know. Jason & Kristie were gorgeous! Their family and friends? Gorgeous! I was so proud to be a part of it all. The event lasted about 7 hours from ceremony until the end of the reception. A challenge for any performer. I was up for it. The bride and groom picked out a wide variety of music. I soon realized why. There was about 100 plus guests with various tastes. I had the tunes to satisfy. Different sounds for different dancers. I got a lot of great photographs and here they are: http://www.keysdan.com/2007-10-06_Jason_Kristie_Wedding_at_Lo-Key_Estate.html

Want great family and friend? Get to know Ron. This guy has been all over the world with his family in tow. The people love him. He likes the classic rock and he likes treating his family and friends to a great party. Spare no expense. This guy is good. I met so many nice folks at his place. I look forward to the next party at Ron's. The pictures that I took are here: http://www.keysdan.com/2007-10-05_Ron_House_Party.html

Had a blast with JC on the Radio and DJ Otto at South Dade. We have done this before. We liked it so much that we had to do it again. Food by 5 J's Restaurant. Music by JC on the Radio and DJ Otto of the Friday Night Dance Party on Radio Exito 105.5 FM. It was a great time had by all. Lots of Cars were moved off of the lot too. Good for the sales people and their families. The picture that I took are here: http://www.keysdan.com/2007-09-29_South_Dade_Dodge.html

You weren't there? Well you missed a fantastic event. The Freestyle Greats were all in one intimate location. Hialeah Park is off to a great start to being saved from demolition. The freestyle fans came from all over South Florida to see the show. JC on the Radio MCed the affair. The breaks between bands was filled by DJ Otto and friends. I was in the support and photo taking capacity. It was an honor to be a part of it all. The performers were MC Breezy, Madeline Red, Connie, Ray Guell, and Secret Society. These were the artists that created the music that I grew up on. As a lad, I was into breakdancing. It was a trip down memory lane for me to be on the same stage with my heroes. It isn't often that I get star struck. I was giddy! The pics that I took are here: http://www.keysdan.com/2007-09-22_South_Florida_Dance_Reunion.html
Public Service Message: Leave the breakdancing to the young people. You could hurt yourself.
Jerry, Jerry, Jerry! It was all about Jerry this Saturday afternoon. Ralph & Donna were gracious enough to open up their home to the festivities. There were so many happy faces. The talents that were displayed on the karaoke microphone rivaled many of the American Idol Stars. It was a pleasure to play that classic rock and island tunes between the singers. The party was scheduled from 3pm to 7pm. It ended way too early. The people wanted more, so they had me stay an extra hour and a half. The folks were laughing and singing and playing in the pool. There was even a video produced by all of the guests, including myself, dedicated to Jerry. It was a great time. I would love to play for them again real soon. The pics that I took are here: http://www.keysdan.com/2007-09-15_Jerry_60th_Birthday.html
Public Service Message: Wait 30 minutes after eating to go in the pool.
What a car show! Being an avid fan of, and over the years owner of, Ford Mustangs, I was delighted to be a part of the show. The music was a mix a classic rock with a little speed metal thrown in for good measure. The cars were on display like so much eye candy. The award ceremony was very touching. There was much talk of the effects on all of us of the events of September 11th, 2001. The proceeds of the moneys collected at the car show were donated to the families of the victims. I look forward to doing more events with the group. They were awesome! The pics I took are here: http://www.keysdan.com/2007-09-08_South_Florida_Stangs.html
