The most successful and entertaining song writer on this planet never ceases to amaze his audience with an energy and performance like no other! At 67 years old, Sir Paul Mccartney wowed the audience at tonight’s second round in a string of 3 sold out performances at the newly constructed Citi Field in downtown Flushing, Queens. This was truly a magical evening as Sir Paul celebrated a selection of close to 50 years of the world’s most cherished and beloved songs. Playing the first ever live concert in an outdoor arena of this magnitude over 40 years ago at the legendary Shea Stadium, Paul Mccartney couldn’t resist opening the newly constructed Citi Field with another trip down the Liverpool highway of music! We couldn’t stop dancing and singing, he’s an amazing showman, the audience ranged in age from just a year old little boy singing and hopping behind us to those attending in their 70’s and 80’s! dancing their hearts out in the rows around us! Close to 3 hours of music that included such masterpiece standards as Yesterday, Blackbird and a heart wrenching choked up version of Here Today dedicated to the late John Lennon, to the high energy charged up anthem of Live and Let Die complete with Pyrotechnics and Fireworks, and newly composed selections such as Sing the Changes from Mccartney’s pseduo The Fireman production, we couldn’t get enough of our favorite all time singer and composer. This was the fastest 3 hour performance we’ve ever experienced, if only we could’ve experienced yet another 3 hours of the most melodic selections of all time! Thank you Sir Paul Mccartney for paying a visit to your always receptive audience here in the Big Apple, we welcome yet another return to your roots here in the states!!!

A Spectacular Wedding along the Jersey Shore
Complete with scenic sunsets and breathtaking views, tonight’s wedding at Mcloone’s of Long Branch, NJ was nothing short of spectacular. The bride and groom hand selected a musical playlist that included everything from today’s top 40, hip hop and club music to the classic sounds of old school hip hop, motown, and classic rock. Our DJ’s and MC kept the party moving and dance floor packed the entire evening. The staff at Mcloone’s was always accommodating, and the town of Long Branch felt like we were vacationing at a seaside resort! If we didn’t have the most amazing Paul McCartney concert to enjoy the next day at Citi Field, we may have considered staying overnight and enjoying the local scene this wonderful Summer town has to offer. As always, this was one of many celebrations our DJ and Party Planning service www.jerrylaskin.com had the pleasure of entertaining in a most unique, individualized and personalized setting!
An Amazing Wedding Reception on Long Island!
What a wonderful tribute to the King of Pop at our most recent Wedding Celebration here on Long Island’s North Shore. The groom was huge Michael Jackson fan and what a finer way to entertain his guests was having our always entertaining Lead MC/Motivator Steve lead the entire audience to our own version of the most famous dance video of all time, Yes the Michael Jackson Thriller Dance! We had such an amazing time playing a variety of music from swing to today’s hip hop and top 40. The staff at The Roslyn Claremont Hotel were extremely accomodating and gracious to all of us and filet mignon was top notch! Wishing all the best to yesterday’s bride and groom, they were a delight to work for throughout their special day!
