Music of today has changed so, that it poses a challenge when trying to find “Clean” versions of the latest songs. You may indeed find a clean version, but most still have suggestive lyrics that would make most parents cringe at the sound of them.
I was very successful in my search, and this party turned out great ! The group members danced to sounds and were also given prizes during a raffle. A special guest performance was done by J, who did a Lip Sync of Justin Bieber’s One Time. The fun inside the party made everyone forget the cold and rainy weather outside.

A special thanks to Shanna, Scott and Chris for all of their help and to Sharon for the referral.

I had a blast. It’s always great when work doesn’t feel like work. A special thanks to Steve, John, Larry and the crew up at the Old Mill for all of their assistance in making New Year’s Eve a very special night…..
Last year, I had the good fortune of spinning at a conceptual event called “Big Keith’s 1st Annual Homecoming Shindig.” It was conceived by… (more…)
