Sigma Chi Spring Formal 4-20-13
Calling myself a New Jersey DJ means I cover the entire state. This weekend that meant making a two hour
trek to the Ron Jaworski's Blue Heron Pines Golf Course in Egg Harbor City. That's ok I installed a top notch sound sytem in my van, and I have an upcoming cruise vacation
so I sang along with Bob Marley & company on the commute. The event was the Spring Formal for the Sigma Chi Fraternity.
Staff members advised me that they had another fraternity formal the previous night and now had switched over to plastic cups
as the previous night's guests had broken many glasses on the dance floor. I new I was in for a good time! The evening's musical
selections were an eclectic mix of everything from 90's alternative tracks to Top 40, and suprisingly a heavy amount of country
as requested. Having a 45,000 song and growing musical library updated on a weekly basis comes in handy at parties such as
these. I must say I really enjoyed the diverse selections.

Some memorable moments of the night included the entire group singing the "sweetheart"
song to the girl who was selected as such for the event.
group requested Frank Sinatra's "My Way" to honor the seniors, and also bring the couples out to the dance floor.
The key closing tracks of the night were Livin on a prayer-Bon Jovi and what was supposed to be
the end all song of the night Don't stop believin- Journey......
...but like any epic party where the participants are unwilling to let the good times go and start
chanting in unison for one more song, I was more than happy to oblige. In keeping with the heavy dose of country the song
of choice was Wagon wheel-Darius Rucker!
