You Gots To Grill – Vol. 8
“To Pimp A Butterfly Shrimp”
No shows booked at the moment.
I’m heading back to see my Canadian peoples for a double dose and help promote Red Bull THRE3STYLE. If you’re in Montreal or Quebec City, you’ve got some major parties that you don’t want to miss.
Dagobert – Quebec City
A few years ago, Four Color Zack came out of nowhere and started making us all feel like we might wanna quit DJing. Before I could finish my coffee, he was the 2012 Red Bull Thre3style World Champion. The best part of this tale is, as you’ll learn from this interview, Zack is one of the nicest, most humble and hardest-working DJs in the game. If anyone should be the ambassador for DJing, this guy deserves that crown for sure. Zack recently chiseled some time out of his crazy schedule to sit down with me for a coffee and talk about becoming a DJ by way of a metal band, his love of social media and staying positive as a DJ.

Tomorrow night I’ll be DJing an awesome movie premier for Red Bull. Here’s the skinny:
Where the Trail Ends is a film following the world’s top freeride mountain bikers as they search for un-ridden terrain around the globe, ultimately shaping the future of big mountain freeriding. This unparalleled story documents man’s challenges against mother nature and himself showcased through a cast of colorful characters. This is the most progressive and ambitious mountain biking ever attempted resulting in an entertainment adventure unlike anything experienced before. The screening is presented in collaboration with Specialized with special guest, Darren Berrecloth and an after party to follow.

The New River Gorge in West Virginia is home to the world’s second longest single arch bridge. On the 3rd Saturday of October every year, West Virginia throws a crazy party to let extreme sports enthusiasts of all kind jump off this massive bridge. This year’s party clocked over 80,000 attendees and I got to rock it out of the back of the Red Bull MXT event truck. People were bungee jumping, base jumping and Red Bull’s Air Force was on hand to show everyone how it’s done. Rock!

Big news this month! I’ve been hard at work on the website for my private function / corporate event / wedding business and it’s finally done. The fine folks at R1 Creative did a brilliant job on it and I couldn’t be happier. If you’re having a school, corporate or private function, getting married or just need a great DJ with top-notch sound and lighting, look no further. Check out the site and see what I’ve been up to when I’m not at the club.
I told you in the last email that we’ve been having a busy, crazy awesome Summer in Portland. If you haven’t already, check out my full post and see all the pics and details.

7 Springs Resort, PA
Portland is amazing. I try not to use the word amazing often, but, it really applies here. The amount of good food to eat, events to attend, things to see and places to explore is too much for one person to take in without some serious planning. There’s an ever expanding list of hikes, bike rides, concerts, art events, parties, new restaurants, cool food carts and adventures growing every week. This was my first full Summer here and it was non-stop fun. I had plenty of visitors to help me eat this good food and accompany me as I explored the city and surrounding areas.
I had to show Portland Summer some love and write up my adventures in a post. Thank you to Tia, Red Bull and everyone who helped make magic happen this Summer. Thanks also to everyone who cooked all the food I ate. I ate tons of it… I uploaded over 70 photos to an album in chronological order.
