Colour and Coconuts

DJs are not typically morning people – late night events and early mornings don’t mix.  On this occasion, however, the event started bright and early at 8am with a sweat class.  The event was the fabulous Colour and Coconuts Wellness Festival at Lightspace in Fortitude Valley.

Providing a live DJ set for Elle (Elle Fit) and Dana (Active with D) and their group of fitness enthusiasts was only the beginning.  The day progressed with some amazing and inspiring entrepreneurial speakers from the wellness industry including – Lisa Messenger (Collective Hub), Melissa Ambrosini (Mastering your Mean Girl), Jacqueline Alwell (The Brown Paper Bag), Sarah Holloway (Matcha Maiden) and Julie Stevanja (Stylerunner).

Between speakers, Aaron mixed a wicked set of tunes (heavy on the 90’s hip hop and RnB) to the gorgeous kombucha sipping, superfood eating attendees.

It was a special day on so many levels.  We left feeling inspired, rejuvenated and privileged to be there (and with the best goodie bag ever!).

Special mention goes to the über talented girls at White + White Weddings and Events for organising and styling the whole day.  You did an amazing job!

Our First Wedding Fair

Cut a Rug officially launched itself as a wedding DJ service on the 8th September this year at the wonderful and funky ‘A Darling Affair‘ wedding fair at the Big Pineapple on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Although Aaron has been DJ-ing for over 15 years, this is the first time his business has focussed so strongly on weddings and other celebrations (see our About page if you want to know more about what he’s been doing with his life!).

What drew us to ‘A Darling Affair’ was their love of all things vintage. We are great believers that the best way to showcase yourself as a DJ is to play off vinyl. It’s a bit of a dying art and, let’s face it, it looks way cooler than a CD (or an Ipod, although I am a HUGE Apple-ophile). Vinyl is vintage – ’nuff said, so we felt right at home with all the other old skool vendors.

Bridal fairs can sometimes be a touch intimidating but this one was relaxed and friendly and took all the stress out of being a vendor and a punter (yes, we’re tying the knot ourselves next year). We met some really GREAT vendors and would like to give a shout out to a couple of our favourites – ‘The Rustic Emporium‘ and ‘Love Note‘.

Many of the vendors held competitions…ours was a dance-off! Aaron played a 10 minute set of classic 50’s rock ‘n’ roll, soul, funk and other dance floor classics. Heaps of people got up and had a dance and it was so hard to pick a winner that we ended up giving away two prizes. Major props go out to Carrie from A Darling Affair for the wackiest dancing we’ve seen in a long time!
