The Egg-stravaganza in Pismo Beach 2013

                                          Every year, it grows in size and scale, parking is a little tough but Every year we see families getting to spend a day together having fun in the park as Pismo celebrates The Egg-stravaganza and it's worth whatever it takes to create something this great. It started above with people streaming in from all over 5-cities. We (Sean Forsberg from Bule Wave Ent. helped out with additional sound and labor) set up to play music in Dinosaur Park overlooking the Ocean in Shell Beach. Colleen and the crew from Pismo Rec had Egg hunts set up for all different age groups with over 10,000 eggs in all being spread all over just before the madness began. Sunny Country 102.5 and 96.1 were out with a promo crew as well as the fox 99.1 and their great Fox mascot joining the Easter Bunny to take pictures with all the kids and their Families. We even had the KSBY camera stud there shooting the huge crowds
          We had Pismo PD "D.A.R.E." and Pismo Fire doing what they do for kids and making connections. Mayor Shelly Higgenbotham was there helping out with this wonderful event as usual and even the new City manager James R. Lewis came out to see the wonderful job the entire city crew does. Thousands attended and it was a blast This year I want to make sure you know who the vendors are that take part in making this such a huge success so please check them out and support the local businesses that keep Pismo and Shell Beach the family oriented towns they are. We had Mr Dog, a Pismo Hot Dog legend! they are always great. Premier Inflatables killer Bounce Houses
We also had the support of volunteers form the LDS church who are always ready to help and because they are a younger group, were giving up part of their Spring Break to help out for the community. We also had the Orange Cat Cafe doing hot cocoa, coffee, and tasty treats! The other great vendor was Jan's Kettle Corn, 805-489-2305. I know this isn't all of the great people and businesses represented but I hope it shows just how fun this day actually is! Woo Hoo! This was a great day, below is a pic of just one part of the crowd... lol

3/13/13 Back To Monarch Dunes For Kelly & Tim's Wedding

                 Kelly and Tim are self professed "Nerds", Two hilarious people who got married and are just a Blast! From video game names for the tables to Vows you had to hear to believe, we were laughing from start to finish and I think they are going to spend their lives together that way. Their ceremony was over looking the golf course, officiated by a good friend who pulled it off with a cool nerd-iness that made it very warm and friendly. The reception was constant laughter and included a great meal provided by Brook and her crew from Epic Catering.  The dancing kept rolling right through the end of the night loud and proud! What a great night for a Wedding! Thanks to Amy and her crew at Monarch Dunes, Nicole, and Owen You Rule! for once again hosting and doing a fantastic job. The photography was by Julia Moegelin, who was really fun to work with and made things easy and smooth.

March 7th .....Ladies Night Out For CASA Goes Off at SLO Country Club!

Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children.
                I've been helping them do fundraising for almost 4 years and when you think about fundraising, it brings to mind a fun night with silent auctions, maybe some good wine and spending some money to help a group do good things. This night is all of that..... and then sooooo much more. Bill and his amazing crew at San Luis Obispo Country Club  provided food and set the stage for a room full of professional Women to have fun with a huge list of raffle prizes being given away throughout the night. We up-lit the room in hot pink and hosted a dance floor full of these gorgeous Women just flat out going off! The raffle included prizes like Cases of great wine, weekend get aways to Reno, Symphony nights out, Spa Days and Hair styles, (even a new IPAD 4!) so many great winners with all of the money raised being donated.
                The Executive Director for CASA, The wonderful Theresa Tardiff spoke about the kids they help and the importance of events such as this to CASA for the kids who will need them in the future and how much it means to our community.  We love Alyssa Maddren, she's our contact for CASA, she's the Event Coordinator she keeps us on point and on time and without her we would fall If it all seems warm and fuzzy, it's because it is, they believe so whole heartedly in the cause they represent that it shows in everything they do. 
              I would be leaving out a huge part of this night if I didn't tell you about some friends of mine that are the motivating force behind this and so many other events. The Meathead Movers, et. Al.  ........Funny Name :) .... but a Super successful company that has grown up from our community to become a West Coast Force in the Moving Industry. My good friends Aaron & Erin Steed, Evan Steed, even beautiful Angela & so many of their staff members. I started doing events like this (I call it Having fun - doing good) years ago at the invitation of Aaron Steed, at first I thought "well this will be fun" but I just looked at it as another dance floor to rock. Now after all of these amazing events I wouldn't give them up for all the money in the world and CASA is one of the best. Meathead has a large group pf student athlete's in tuxedo's that host the Ladies all night and add a fun element competing for tips that all get donated back. It needs to be said that every one of the Meathead staff donate their time and energy to this event, some of these guys are professional athlete's now or will be soon and go on to every kind of success you can think of. I also want to mention James who is a Mgr. for Meathead, he is a calming force for their crew and is a great addition to their group.    
               If you don't do anything for anyone else this year, attend a CASA event and Have Fun Doing Good, We do and we love it.

What a NIGHT! The SLO women's shelter Annual Fund Raiser at Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo

Huge Crowd during the Auction  at The Expo Center
                          This our 4th year donating a performance to support the "Phyllis Madonna Musical Review" raising money for the S.L.O. Women's Shelter. They're always fun, always a huge showing of people and I'll just say it, they're exactly what living in San Luis Obispo is supposed to be about. This year however was different, bigger (over 650 people just at the Saturday night show), it included a show that can only be described as awesome. They managed to make fashion, dance, live singing and lip sync into a truly entertaining, fun and amazingly high energy night. The crowd was a who's who of SLO politics, business and social life with people like Phyllis Madonna,  Sheriff Ian Parkinson and his wife Amy,  Supervisor Adam Hill, Assemblymen Katcho Achadjian, Former Senator Sam Blakeslee,  Dr. Renee Bravo, County Supervisor Bruce Gibson, Aaron and Erin Steed with Evan Steed, Angela and friends (some of our favorite people), The KSBY TV news anchors John Reger and Jeanette Trumpeter and crew, A whole bunch of Twissleman Family members, and on and on and on.
Mixing for a full dance floor!
                        Our job at this event is the Party at the end of both nights, we get to be the music and MC for what can only be described as a HUGE dance party. While the staff at Madonna Inn is hard at work, we rock every kind of music and keep the dance floor jumping and drinks flowing till the end of the night. This is fun no matter how you look at it and we had a blast. I love mixing for this kind of crowd and they have so much fun, it's just awesome to be a DJ on these nights. The fact that it's also raising money for an amazing cause makes it just that much more incredible. ........Great Job Phyllis....Again!

Wedding Of Amythyst and Jeff At Monarch Dunes at Trilogy

               Weddings are NOT all the same, sometimes they are huge parties and sometimes they are undefinable. This was a night of class, deep burgundy accents, amazing Families and a very definable connections to their beliefs. The Bride and Groom got married in the sculpture Garden in front of 150 of the friends and family. The officiant was warm, personal and connected which makes for a wonderful ceremony. The cocktail hour took place as the sun went down in front of a fireplace in the Atrium of the resorts clubhouse. The reception was at times elegant, with  Food by Phil's Catering,   (Andy and the crew did a great job and as usual the food rocked.) at times hilarious and at times even emotional. When two cool people meet, plan their big day, invest their time (and lets face it their money), this is how it's supposed to be. It was an honor to be part of it .....DJ Bob
This Wedding Venue is Awesome check them out!
