What can a Steinbach/ Winnipeg Wedding DJ learn from a magician for fun cocktail hour ideas

So on Saturday May 3 I had the pleasure attending a birthday party for friends of ours son in the Niverville area. On our way all I could think of was me reliving my childhood, attending birthday parties that started at noon and ended at 4 in the afternoon, ice cream, cup cakes and goody bags oh how I love the goody bags. Then. Reality hits me and I remember that I’m an adult and I gotta stand by the side while all the kids have the “real fun” oh man…this sucks !

When we got down stairs I noticed that there was a gentleman who they said was from Winnipeg, he was setting up and he had a a Bunch of playing cards, took a closer look and It was Alex Hamm the Magician.. Sweet! If anyone knows me they know I’m a huge geek for magic and all things mythical. Today was getting better by the minute

When it was time all the kids got ushered in they made a semi circle and Alex jumped right in, he had them eating out of the palm of his hand, kids and adults alike were amazed. He got the adults involved with tricks that made sense for adults which I could totally see working at wedding reception during cocktail hour.

At one point this Winnipeg Magician used kids as magicians as well, which helps to tie things in, cement the moment in their minds and make the birthday party fun & memorable, I don’t know about you but that’s got “Fun Wedding Idea” written all over it.

I noticed that he started to pull random things out of thin air and from behind people’s ears (typical right?) until you see that these things light up and then get caught in a brown paper bag, a little trippy

There was times he took audience belongings and made it look like he destroyed it ( which freaked out the owners ) but got a good chuckle when they got it back in one piece, and he did a pretty good job of getting the hosts involved on.

I’m thinking that as an interactive DJ company in the Winnipeg and Steinbach area who specializes in personalizing wedding ceremonies & receptions I’d be very interested in pointing my couples in the direction of a magician like Alex Hamm.

What I’ve learnt from this Winnipeg magician “Alex Hamm” is that using something like Magic can definitely entice and awe your guests during the cocktails while the bride and groom are busy getting their wedding pictures done.

Winnipeg Wedding Social DJ – After Red River Business Exams for Steve & Paloma

So on Friday May 2, 2014 We (DJ Brenton & DJ Jules aka Julio Hernandez) performed a Winnipeg Wedding Social for Steve & Paloma. Man was it epic!, they both were students at the Red River college in Winnipeg and Friday was the last day of exams for them and all their fellow business students, their wedding social was held at Greendell community center on Woodlawn Ave in Winnipeg (which just got a face lift by the way) and all the students were piling in, like literally… just pouring in through the doors they finished off the final exam about 4 hrs before the Wedding Social started.

Heritage Museum and it was a great time. When they contacted us about a year ago they were thrilled that we were available and excited to be their DJ’s for their Winnipeg Wedding Social. During our first “get to know your Social DJ” meeting they were pretty thorough on what they did and didn’t want, which was awesome. I recall Steve saying “first off.. NO country! we want classic rock and top 40’s” and the Paloma threw in with a big smile “and Latin music! , my family is Spanish and they love to dance”. Which is good because we know it’s important to play what the couple wants. At the end of the meeting we sent them home with a copy of our very own ” “How to Make More Money at your Winnipeg Wedding Social.” it’s a book we wrote which compiles all 9 years worth of doing Winnipeg and Manitoba wedding socials in to a 45 page planner which our couples have dubbed their social planning bible.

Between that day and their wedding social on the 2nd there were many emails back and forth and tons of text messages. About 6 weeks before the wedding social we got together at our office in Winnipeg to plan the wedding social, we went through a time line, we created schedules for their wedding party to work, we picked more music, and set pricing for drinks and silent auction tickets as well as gave them pointers on how to abide by the new MLG (Manitoba Liquor & Gaming Commission)

Come social night we got there and setup plus, had a projector set up with pictures of Paloma & Steve for the guests to watch, by 10 pm our dance floor was hopp’n after we taught out first interactive dance, “The Cupid Shuffle” and then from there we pumped them up, danced with them, taught them interactive dances and created a fun Wedding Social.

Our silent auction draw which would normally take 30-45 minutes to draw 15 regular prizes, 5 grand prizes, 50/50 and stock your bar. Only took a whopping 12 minutes, just by using a simple trick which we share with all our couple who book with us.

And now were scheduled to do the music, sound system and microphones for Steve & Paloma’s wedding ceremony in August at the formal gardens in the Assiniboine Park.
