This past Sunday we surprised my parents with a 50th Birthday and 30th Anniversary party at McCormick and Schmick’s at the Inner Harbor. Both of my parents were very surprised but it wasn’t very easy pulling it off. As we were about to walk into the room, my parents decided that they needed to use the rest room. Everyone in the party room was kind of taken back and Sabrina had to scramble to come up with an alternate plan to get them in the room together. It turned out well though; even better than the original plan.
We wanted a DJ for the party and instantly thought of Derek Heckler of Dance Masters DeeJay Services. Derek was the DJ at our wedding and delivered another outstanding job for this party. He played music that had everyone’s toes tapping, which was no easy task considering the wide age ranges present, and also did a great job MCing. He is very astute at detecting the mood of the crowd and playing songs that fit. I can’t recommend this guy enough.
I just wanted to thank everyone who came and made this event special for my parents. They had a great time and really enjoyed sharing this day with their friends and family. More pictures from the day can be found here.
