A Few Good DJ Moments from 2012

Hello everyone!

I need to apologize for not blogging as much as I promised.  This year has been very hectic and crazy.  Running a business is time consuming, but now we are also preparing for a new baby expected in the next three weeks.  Life has a way of coming up while we are making plans, but I would like to tell you a little bit about what has been happening here at Cope Entertainment.

We have had many excellent events this year.  Some of my more memorable events I am so in the moment that I let go by without thinking of capturing it, but I was able to catch a few shots of two of my most fun weddings.


These first photos were taken at the City Club in San Francisco this last September.  My clients were so awesome, but their guests surprised me the most.  Many of them began hold masks with the Bride and Groom's faces on them - it was hilarious!  Thank you Will and Carolyn for such a good time!


The next wedding I want to show you was just recently on October 27th.  Being close to Halloween the guests were given masks to wear.  We had a great time, and the dance floor was packed!  I was able to mix it up with some modern Top 40, 90's to, early 2000 club tracks.  We threw in a few oldies as well.  I had a great time and took these shots from behind my DJ booth.  The middle shot was during the last dance.

First, a Little History...


This first post of mine is dedicated entirely to my two mentors, the owner's of my parent company - Sound In Motion DJ's & Video - namely "DJ Adrian" Cavlan and "King" Raffi Nalvarian, as they have nurtured me through almost my entire DJ career and still continue to do so. I am very grateful, thanks guys.

My passion for performing began in 1997, at Pioneer high School, in San Jose, during my senior year when my other ASB friends and I talked the administration into letting us play music in the quad on Fridays during lunch. It was then that I was hooked. I am not even sure my first experiences playing music in front of people qualifies as "DJ-ing," but alas, I was hooked.

And so it goes, with nothing but a discman, a PA system, and a mic my career was launched. I started training to be a professional mobile DJ in 1999. I have been professionally working over 12 years now as a DJ with Sound In Motion, and in 2011 I finally launched my own company - Cope Entertainment & Weddings - providing the the Greater Sacramento Area with very experienced, quality-oriented, and non-cheesy mobile DJ entertainment!

This is just the first post of this blog. In it I will be telling stories, letting you in on good entertainment and wedding planning advice. In the next post I will attempt to tell a story of the fun procedure in starting a mobile DJ business. How I did things, and where I am now.

See you then!
