We have 5 very talented DJs spinning a mix of House music and I'll be playing with a live Violinist.

Costume is expected of course so dress up and come on down!

LA LIVE is on FIRE!!!

We had a huge event tonight for NBTA (National Business Travelers Association) down at the shiny new LA LIVE complex.

The DJ setup was place on a huge lighting & metal truss system that was about 20 feet off the ground!

The sound through out the area was amazing as we played on the new JBL VRX system.

We had over 3000 people down in the common area and then they were treated to a surprise concert by Cyndi Lauper in the new Nokia Theater.

The party was produced by the good folks at

Kung Fu to you!!!!

We had the Kung Fu Panda premiere party tonight at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.

The client was DreamWorks and we've been lucky to have them as a client for several high profile Hollywood events now.

This one was no different with amazing decor and fantastic catering.
The vibe was pretty hip & loungy for most of the night but we managed to get them dancing by the end of the evening.

Skee-Lo from Gnarls Barkley did a PERFECT cover of "Kung Fu Fighting" by Carl Douglas which I think will be on the soundtrack.

The Roosevelt is a beautiful hotel and during the summer the have a pretty big turn out for weekend pool parties so it that is your sort of thing....

The gig of a lifetime....

So as I told you all in a previous posting I was tapped to play the 2008 Oscar party and the highlight of my night was when Seal asked me for my card and said he liked my music.

Well he called and invited me to come down to Mexico and play for His and Heidi Klum's anniversary party. The party was at their private house in a very isolated part of Jalisco which is a couple hours from Puerto Vallarta.

The place was amazing and very romantic.
Seal and his guests were all very warm, kind and turned out to be big fans of Funk & Disco.....who knew?

I've always been a fan of his music and talent so it was a real honor to be trusted with providing music for such a special day!

Saki is a DJ's best friend......

Well we had an interesting gig this week.

We provided sound and music for a Saki tasting and a fantastic Japanese restaurtant (pretty new) on Restaurant Row.

I had no idea there were so many different kinds of Saki with such distinct flavors!
It was pretty interesting to watch people as the night went on because Saki tends to creep up on you pretty quickly so needless to say by the end of the evening we had some intoxicated folks on the dance floor.

I'd recommend the place if you are looking for a nice spot to eat: Tokyo Table
50 N. La Cienega Blvd Beverly Hills, CA 90211

Enjoy but watch your Saki intake!

Got a chance to play with the LA ALL STARS this week.
We flew to Phoenix for a huge corporate event and stayed at a swanky hotel.

Wes, Trey and the rest of the 8 piece band are some of the most talented musicians I've worked with and their style is very modern & hip for a special event group. Collectively they've toured with Prince, Backstreet Boys, Toni Braxton, Babyface, Whitney Houston and Ricky Martin just to name a few...

The 2008 Oscar Party

Well I was selected to spin for the official "Night Before" the Oscars party at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Quite an honor to spin for such a high profile event attended by some of the heaviest hitters in the entertainment industry.

A star gazers dream for sure as I noticed Tom Hanks, Will Smith, Steven Spielberg, Jamie Foxx, Fergie, Harrison Ford and many more moving through the room.

The annual event was started by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Variety as a charity function back in 2002 and this year it was produced by Robyn Leuthe Norris at Before & After Productions with help from my good friends at DreamWorks event department. The food was catered from Wolfgang puck and it was delicious!!

I played mostly a mix of Lounge, Nu Jazz, Soul & vintage Funk with a bit of KCRW eclectic thrown in.
The highlight of my night was when SEAL tapped me on the shoulder and told me he liked my music.
Seal liked MY music!

Well I'm finally here.....

Hey everyone........or maybe I should say....anyone?
Since this is my first blog entry I should assume it may fall on deaf ears so to speak.

While I am a DJ and very gadget oriented I've been slow to adapt to the tech world we live in but I'm now also on Myspace and Facebook under DJ Lee Dyson.


Well I promise to to ramble too much and occasionally add things that will either make you laugh or keep you informed.
