Summer DJ Spotlight

Summer DJ Spotlight

Here at Vinyl, we're pumped for Summer.  Like super pumped.  It's the most wonderful time of the year for many reasons, not least of which is the lack of clothing.  We have some great things coming up during these next few months, including live performances, special themed nights, and awesome after parties for all your favorite Rochester festivals.  But amidst all the hustle and bustle, we must not forget those who have been grinding with us in the trenches all throughout this year so far.  Those troopers who warmed us up in the cold winter months: our resident DJ's.

These gentlemen are top caliber.  They cover a wide swath of the local Rochester music scene, from up-and-comers to veterans of the game.  Not only can they be relied on weekly to entertain and energize our crowds, but they also constantly up their respective games in all ways, always evolving lest they become stale or simple placeholders like some other local DJ's.  Talent like this should be praised and recognized.  And the best place to start would be one of our longest residents.

DJ Jestyr is a staple of the local DJ scene.  He has been present and certainly accounted for at all of Rochester's hottest spots at least once, and has slayed the crowds at every turn.  Whether its legendary establishments that are no longer around, like Heat or The Pig, or mainstay ones which still go strong, like One or Wall Street, Jestyr has left his indelible mark on every single one.  His distinctive style covers a wide variety of genres and is always played exclusively towards his given crowds desires.  To call him an asset would be an understatement; at this point he's practically an irreplaceable factor in our success over the years.

In this same vein, DJ Sweet has captivated local crowds for many years, and has cemented his status in Rochester as one of the most reliable and diverse DJ's out there.  His attention to the finest details of a crowd and his anticipation of their various needs and wants has made him a local legend by all accounts.  He is also a founding member of The Beatclan, a consortium of DJ's and promoters who have rocked bars and nightclubs for years, and not just locally.  Along with DJ Jestyr as a fellow founding member, this group has played all across the US.  Whether its the hallowed ground of Las Vegas or even internationally, the Beatclan has entertained throngs of people the world over.

DJ Gweedo can also be considered a veteran, and while he may not be as well-traveled as our previously discussed boys, he is no less talented or proficient at his craft.  A mainstay of the old Heat nightclub as well as a fixture of local establishments such as One Nightclub and Nolas, the real question is where has Gweedo not been?  His varied blends have even attracted the attention of Hollywood personalities, as he was a big part in the Jersey Shore TV show takeover of Rochester several years back.  You can always rely on him to deliver a set that pleases the masses, and that leaves them salivating for more.

Finally we come to someone who has the least amount of years in the DJ biz when you stack him up to our previously discussed talents, but who is certainly not a rookie by any means.  DJ Keyyo is a hot talkent here in Rochester, with his distinctive style and look separating him from the flock of local talent currently out there.  His output can also be described as just as innovative and eclectic.  He began his days doing guest spots at all the notable local joints, including the noe-defunct Scene Nightclub.  He now rubs elbows with the best of them.  His eye-catching dance talent also adds to his ever growing list of attributes.  We are proud to have him here at Vinyl, and consider it an honor and pleasure.

What you should take from all of this is that we have a mix of talented DJ's at our disposal here, and they will be killing it for you all throughout the upcoming Summer months.  Hot Summer nights were made for great music, drinks, and friends.  Vinyl has that in spades.  So come out and join us for an epic Summer.  Our beat masters are waiting for you.

Book Your Event At Vinyl

As most of you already know, Vinyl is the place to be when you want to unwind with a few drinks and let loose with a sophisticated but yet laid-back downtown crowd.  But did you also know we specialize in hosting a variety of events, whether it be bachelor parties or business functions, complete with special accommodations and all the works?  Here's several cases in which we can roll out a classy setup for you and your party.

Business Events

Whether your workplace is celebrating a special milestone or simply hosting a company mixer, we can provide you with anything you would possibly need to ensure the event is a total success.  A copious and varied selection of  signature drink specials constitute the bare minimum of services offered.  We can also help design a full experience for your guests, including special decor that goes with your theme.  Something as simple as your company logo can be displayed and look as good as it ever has due to the work of our special in-house designer.  Long story short: keep us at the front of your mind when considering your business event needs.  Many other well-established Rochester companies already do.

Bachelor Parties

You're about to get married.  Once you come down off your anxiety attack, consider Vinyl for the final bachelor blowout.  We have hosted many of these parties over the years, all of which have resulted in many happy customers.  Special drink options are also on the table here, as is the aforementioned exclusive decor.  Also: what happens within these walls stays within these walls.  Within reason, of course.

Bachelorette Parties

The ladies should certainly not feel left out either, as Bachelorette parties have turned out to be one of our most popular options available at Vinyl.  Show the gentlemen how it's done with a rented room downstairs (complete with bar service), as well as special decor from our designer.  Two words: pink everything.

Birthday Celebrations

If you're looking for something a little more involved than simply showing up with your friends for some birthday festivities, allow us to handle it for you and throw you a bash you wont forget.  Turning 30 and want to make it a milestone occasion?  Our drink specials and catering options will give you reason to celebrate.  And make that whole turning 30 thing go down much easier.

College Parties

All of Rochester already knows Vinyl is host to the cities hottest College night on Thursdays.  But we are also the leading nightclub when it comes to booked college events.  We host collegiate parties of all types, whether it be sorority bashes or college club mixers.  Reserved space is available, as are special decor options and drink specials.  We will provide the works and meet your needs to throw you a successful and memorable night.
