Columbus Area Wedding And Event Venue Scioto Reserve Country Club

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | March 27, 2014

We were thrilled to be part of Leslie and Tom’s wedding celebration this past weekend at Scioto Reserve Country Club, located just north of Columbus in Powell, Ohio. Not only is Scioto Reserve gorgeous,  but  the food and service are truly exceptional.   Also, working with the delightful Ann Marie Orren and the Scioto Reserve staff is the best, because we know all the details will be taken care of, and everything will run perfectly.

Scioto Reserve Uplighting 1

Leslie and Tom wanted to highlight the warm and inviting look of the ballroom, so they choose our Night Music uplighting option to add  splashes of color throughout the venue.  Scioto Reserve has such a modern and sophisticated feel that includes an inviting bar area, and a beautiful outdoor wedding garden.   (And we don’t know anywhere else in town with  an such awesome groomsman’s lounge complete with a pool table.)

Columbus DJs love Pharrell! Make yourself HAPPY and bid on his crazy hat.

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | February 28, 2014

It seems like Pharrell Williams was everywhere on our dance floor this year.  Get Lucky and Blurred Lines, and now the Oscar nominated Happy … our current fave! Just imagine being a part of all of that by rocking the one and only giant hat that Pharrell wore at the Grammy Awards (and wears in the Happy video).  Someone is going to own this – why not you?

BuckeyeThon 2014 Benefiting Nationwide Children's Hospital Columbus

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | February 17, 2014

BuckeyeThon2014Dance

It was a super successful dance marathon as students from The Ohio State University raised over $767,000 to benefit the Hematology/Oncology Department of Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus. We were excited for Stephanie Ransom who was able to get her movie star friend, Kristen Bell (yes, THE Kristen Bell) to donate to the cause that was held at the university’s Ohio Union this past weekend.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital is part of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and treats all children regardless of a family’s ability to pay. Although BuckeyeThon has ended this year, you can still donate to the cause here: https://donations.childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/

The Beatles! Backstage & Behind the Scenes

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | January 30, 2014

Just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first visit to the United States, Capital University’s Schumacher Gallery has pulled a photographic coup.

The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes documents the start of BEATLEMANIA with a collection of photographs by Life Magazine’s Bill Eppridge. Just imagine a collection of 84 never before published images showing Paul, John, George and Ringo hard at work and play.  We especially loved the images from the rehearsal sessions at the Deauville Hotel in Miami Beach before the second live appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Check out that cool terry cloth beach wear!

Beatles in Miami

Because classic Beatles songs continue to be fun and popular at so many parties, it was a blast to get the opportunity to take a look at the energy behind the magic through these candid photos.

This unique show runs through March 22, so you have plenty of time to take a look … and did we mention that it’s FREE?

Visit the Schumacher Gallery on the 4th floor of Capital University’s Blackmore Library. The library faces Main St. across right from the Drexel Theater in Bexley.   Helpful Hint: Park for free on Main St. directly in front of the library. Visit the website here.
