I always get administrators up on stage dancing a bit, but these guys really rock out– they dance as much as the students and have fun with every song I play. Mix that with the energy I get from the students and you can see why I love performing for this school!
I was stressed out, can’t lie. 4SchoolsOnly had it’s busiest weekend ever. Luckily, I was (once again) at the amazing Dolphin hotel where Lindsey made it SUPER-EASY for me to get work done and stress less about this event. Not to mention that the school admin is so easy to work with I was prepared for this one since last year!
Their theme was… wait for it… Midnight Masquerade in VENICE (see a pattern here?) and they did a great job decorating, especially outside. (No, I didn’t get pics of that and I wish I had.)
You gotta see the amazing photos (wife took most of them) and video below!

Erin and Seth have been to a couple of weddings we’ve done and wanted their wedding to have a similar vibe. Hosted at the beautiful Lakeland Yacht and Country Club, they wanted an elegant light show that will enhance the venue but also turn it into an inviting dance atmosphere. Uplighting and stars on the ceiling (including blue stars) gave a whole new new look to the Yacht Club while the dance floor lighting flooded the room with vibrant colors.
We used our scanning lights to create a spotlight dance and highlight the head and cake tables for the toast and cake cutting.
Check out some of the great pics and video below!
DJ Woody and the rest of the 4SO Crew ROCKED Seminole’s homecoming, and they wanted the action to keep going at their Winter Dance. We brought out a smaller version of their Showstopper package, appropriately called the Showstopper MINI, which was perfect for the 400 person crowd.
The students designed and created the décor and did a GREAT job with it. It was all accented nicely with out lighting, too! My wife, Monica (our lead tech) had a blast creating a fun lighting display that would work despite not being able to use haze at the gym.

Those are the measurements of the screens and the truss rig. Needless to say, it was huge! They chose a circus theme this year and wanted it to be very visual. As students walked in, images and videos of the circus scrolled through the video screens as a spotlight (up over 25′ in the air) highlighted anything exciting going on in the dance floor.
Unfortunately, no haze is allowed in Pasco County Gym (yet) due to the alarms and air conditioners being tied together. Props to John Caniford for the Catwalk stage idea– EVERYONE LOVED IT!

This whole night was absolutely unpredictable: the setup, the rig itself, the student’s reaction, and the overall energy. I knew the night would be insane based on their homecoming dance, and the 4SO team really did a good job keeping up with them.
When we first met, they had LOTS of complaints about their previous DJ who just couldn’t put their vision to reality. They wanted a REAL music experience with a light show that can keep up; they had video screens in the past, but none like what we brought out: a 22′ WIDE VIDEO SCREEN!
Black lights, glow in the dark bubbles, a beautiful projected moon, dry ice clouds, and a starry night sky pulled their fairytale theme together. Our Snap Yourself Silly Photobooth was also a HUGE hit!
Check out the photos and videos below. You will see two videos: the gig summary and a time-lapse set up!
