On a personal level, my wife Joely and I were blessed with our second child, Asher, in August. He’s a healthy and beautiful little boy who brightens our lives with his infectious smile. He has definitely made our little family complete. We couldn’t be happier.
On a business level, I had my best year so far as a Boise wedding DJ. I DJ’d more weddings in 2014 than in years past and I like to think all of them were successful. I got to travel to beautiful places like Shore Lodge Resort on Payette Lake in McCall, ID and work the 4th of July on top of the CW Moore Building where the spectacular Boise fireworks show could be seen. Great stuff!
I also started working with other talented DJs in the area to help fulfill dates that I had already booked. I realized it’s hard saying no when you’re excited to help everyone that comes your way. That’s why I added DJs Rory Patterson, Mike Gradian and Travis Powell to the Rhodes Entertainment roster. I think the addition of these fellas has been great for everyone.
2014 wasn’t all about weddings either. I had the pleasure of DJing several unique events throughout the year. One of the most memorable ones was the College of Western Idaho’s Commencement Ceremony at Taco Bell Arena. Sounds funny, right? Traditionally, these ceremonies are rather drab. Not this one. The staff there wanted to do something different; really send the new graduates off with a bang…and we did! With big, flashing colorful lights, confetti and my high-energy mixing, the end of the ceremony was, well, insane! As they left the arena, the graduates and professors were dancing, clapping their hands and just having a great time. It’s difficult to describe in words what those 10 minutes were like, but you don’t feel that type of energy very often. Simply put, it was cool to be part of. I look forward to doing it again this year.
I could tell stories for days about 2014 and how much fun I had, but I’ll keep it short and sweet. Now, it’s time to move on and get excited for what’s in store. All I have to say is watch out 2015! This is going to be our best year yet!
