PEGASUS WORLD CUP INVITATIONAL

The Pegasus World Cup Invitational returned for its 3rd year to Gulfstream Park with a $16 million purse, making it the richest race in North America. As one of South Florida’s most entertaining & glamourous day events of the year, I was beyond excited to return in full derby attire & provide the all-day tunes at the race’s VIP level, the Flamingo Room. Up & away from the wet weather, here VIPs enjoyed bites from some of my personal favorites, including Swan & Bar Bevy, and G.H. MUMM champagne. The race drew 10,000 fans, celebrities, horse racing elites, influencers and socialites even on the rainiest day.

At the end of a long but eventful day, there were two championship races with City of Light, ridden by Hall of Fame Jockey Javier Castellano, claiming the $4 million first place finish for the Pegasus World Cup Invitational, and Bricks and Mortar, ridden by Eclipse Award-winning Jockey Irad Ortiz Jr., taking the first place $3 million purse for the inaugural Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational.

Just off memory, we had Snoop Dogg, Dennis Rodman and Evander Holyfield in my room, and Mark Ronson even stopped by the booth for a quick chat, before he headed downstairs to headline the LIV Village Stretch. Many thanks again to The Stronach Group for the special invitation. Looking forward to making this a yearly tradition!

CADILLAC HOTEL & BEACH CLUB GRAND OPENING

There are several reasons why I love Miami. The perseverance of Miami Beach’s art deco architecture is one of them – and that’s exactly what the new Autograph Collection Cadillac Hotel did.  The debut of Cadillac Hotel & Beach Club hosted a large international crowd to unveil the new property inspired by the 1940s Italian and French Rivieras with a preserved Art Deco aesthetic. The grand opening event offered guests everything from world renowned synchronized swimmers, The Aqualilies, to exclusive art installations with Minuty Rose artist Ashley Mary, and a culinary & cocktail experience.

The DJ booth was posted up right on the hotel’s tiki-inspired deck, my soundtrack was as you would imagine, “very Miami”.  Thank you to BMF Media having me be part of another beautiful production.

IRIE WEEKEND XIV

Another year of Irie Weekend in the books! Back for it’s 14th year, DJ Irie’s birthday turned celebrity weekend celebration brings Miami 3 days of day to night events all to support his charity the Irie Foundation, which seeks to empower South Florida’s at-risk youth to lead productive lives through mentorship programs, cultural experiences and scholarship opportunities. It’s both an honor & privilege to support him on his journey to bring experiences to children that might not have the chance to take part in otherwise, due to their personal circumstances.

Like every year, IW kicks off with a celebrity-driven golf tournament, which was taken for the first year to the all-new Topgolf in Miami Gardens. Bright & early, Celebrities such as Joey Fatone, Alonzo Mourning & more all gathered to play for charity. Of course, the E11even fam had to take golfing to a whole new level by transforming all three levels into a multi-level nightclub experience, including a special activation on the rooftop which I had the pleasure of DJing. The full day event ended with of  a concert stage rolled out onto the green by E11EVEN Music, with performances by Ludacris & Jamie Foxx.

The next few days followed with beach bashes & late nights/early mornings at both LIV & E11even and it all wrapped up on Sunday with a new addition to the weekend,  Turn Down For Brunch at the Fontainebleau. The menu featured a crazy array of items including Pink Waffles with Truffled Ranch Dressing, Bourbon Infused Maple Syrup, Edible Gold Dust, S’mores Ice Cream Paninis, and plenty of mimosas, (trust)! I provided the party vibes all day while  Jonathan Cheban, co-hosted.

Thanks to my amazing clients/friends at Artist Related & E11even for the inclusion all weekend long. And of course, big thanks to the busiest man I know, Irie, who always finds the time to put others first.

Couldn’t have spent Halloween in better company than with Veuve Cliquot. Their annual Yelloween event was hosted at Zuma Miami on Halloween night and I was thrilled to provide the spooky soundtrack.

DINER EN BLANC 2017

The infamous white party pop-up Diner En Blanc made it’s anticipated return this year & I was so humbled to be asked to provide the magical night’s music once again. With almost 2,000 people in attendance, the event did not disappoint. The location this time around: Herald Park (yes, where the original Miami Herald building once stood tall in downtown, RIP) now reveals unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay & the perfect backdrop for a night of napkin waving, sparkler twirling & non-stop dancing. (OMG & I had to cut the music at one point to facilitate a proposal on stage!)

Thanks to all the sponsors for contributing to a perfect night (inclusive of perfect weather… Miami you really held it together that night). And a special thanks to Alchemy for bringing me back to experience it all!
