This was DJ MandyMixes’ 3rd year as DJ for the Oceanside Museum of Art’s Annual Halloween Event – Art After Dark. In 2020 we went virtual and DJ Mandy provided the score/soundtrack for the online fashion show and then hosted a virtual dance party after the fashion show via Zoom. Check out the original post below from the museum to see what the event was all about:

Happy 7 Years to Me! Although, really I’ve been DJ-ing for friends & family for over 20 years! EEEK!!! Here’s the story behind each image. I just HAD to throw in multiple photos from 2019, because that was my best year yet (my first year fully ONLY doing my DJ biz, no other side hustles like in the past) and the most amount of professional photos I’ve had taken of me, ha!
2013 – I did my cousin’s wedding that July and then a couple weeks later I announced to the world that I was officially starting my DJ business and this photo was at my first gig, a backyard birthday party (August 24, 2013). And that hat, is the one that started it all! In case you haven’t noticed, I might have a slight obsession with hats! ha!
2014 – This was at Zymology 21 (no longer open) in Downtown San Diego for a networking group I was in with Thepulsesd Elite Networking Group
2015 -This was at the Wine Women & Wealth -California Expo/Conference at Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa

THE STORY BEHIND THIS EVENT: I was really sad that we couldn’t be together this year for the 5th Annual Back to (OLD) School Dance Party so I decided to create some shirts for you to buy to have a little piece of the dance party with you this year, THEN I realized we could still do a virtual dance, not as a replacement but just as a little bonus fun! AND since National Dance Day is September 19 I thought it was the perfect date. Then I was thinking, we need a little something extra since a virtual dance isn’t quite the same as being in person SO I decided to add a fundraiser element!
When I decided to add a fundraiser aspect to this dance I immediately thought of Beverly Boone of Milestone House. She has been a loyal fan of my annual dance party since the beginning and she is ALWAYS the first one on the dance floor every year, so it only made sense to support her non-profit!

PLAYLIST: Lots of Country plus all the wedding favorites that guests always enjoy!
TESTIMONIAL: Hiring DJ Mandy for my wedding (3/14/20) was an absolute great decision. I was planning a wedding from across the country and DJ Mandy was working with me every step. With COVID-19 sneaking up on us, I had to make a lot of last minute changes. The night before the big day I was even making changes, but DJ Mandy was flexible and made my day perfect!
I loved how I got to give her a list of songs that I wanted to be played and during what times. The songs she filled in were a great selection. At one point she even taught my guests the moves to a line dance, which I loved that! Not a lot of my guests knew how to line dance, so showing them how to do one was very special to me!
DJ Mandy also played “Let It Go” for my little flower girls to dance to! I think this helped encourage everyone to get out on the dance floor.
As if DJ Mandy wasn’t amazing enough, I have to add that she even sent me a “safe travels” text before I flew across the country for my wedding. This just shows that she really cares about her customers.
It was honestly a pleasure having such a sweet and wonderful DJ at my wedding! – Savannah, Bride
