I spent St. Patrick's day performing and running sound for my favorite murder mystery company, Capers! Of course, a great time was had by all, and as usual, no one was

"The Magical Mystery Tour is waiting to take you away..."
Tonight I worked with one of my favorite companies, "Capers", based out of Los Angeles. Buzz and Lynn really know how to host a mystery party and tonight's Roaring 20's theme
was the Cat's Meow! The party was held at French 75, in Laguna Beach, the perfect setting for our 1920's murder mystery. After setting up the sound and testing the mics, I
became "Phoebe", an aspiring actress, nightclub singer...and suspect! Running around in a flapper dress getting to sing, dance, AND prove my innocence was great fun and I
can't wait to do it again. By the end of the night plenty of people were guilty, yet no one was harmed!

"Girl, put your records on..."
Today I spent the afternoon recording a remix for a couple getting married soon. They wanted something special for their first dance, and loved the idea of a "first dance remix".
You might have seen one of these wedding dances online, they're great! However, this couple wanted something original and I was happy to assist. They picked their favorite
songs, their favorite lyrics within each song, and the order they wanted them played. I then created a mix for them incorporating each little bit of song. This is a technique that can
also be achieved live. I'm working on recording more mixes to post on my "music & more" page...look for them soon!

"For auld lang syne, my dear..."

New Years Eve party. During dinner we even had a guest start singing Dean Martin, which led to a full group sing along! By midnight we were all dancing to a more current beat,
and to a brand new year!
