Chicken Dance is still fun!

Another Great weekend with Music In Motion DJ's and the Chicken Dance at Mr. and Mrs. Doug Whiteside wedding reception held at the WinMock Granary in Bermuda, NC,  Yup out in Bermuda, NC because no wedding is too far from us here in Raleigh.  Feel The Sound with Music In Motion and Snap Shot Photo Booth still entertains playing the Chicken Dance today, especially when our Bride Chantelle requested it.  The Chicken Dance written and produced in 1950 still today entertains guests at weddings  Line/group dances have actually become a dream come true for DJ's in the industry.  Why?  If you have a really good DJ who has the experience and knowledge with reading a crowd as well as excellent mixology of the music he/she would be able to lead into song after song keeping your guests entertained until the very end because a line/group dance gets everyone on the dance floor. This was just the fact at Chantelle and Doug's wedding this past weekend and also played the original Electric Slide by Marcia Griffiths.  So common today is the Cha Cha Slide by Casper however, some would say it all began with the Hully Gully, anyone remember that one?  For more pics of this amazing wedding celebration and other successful events check out our Facebook Page and for daily articles visit our current BLOG  Other line Group Dances; Wobble, Cupid Shuffle, YMCA, Hockey Pockey, Step In The Name Of Love, Bootin Scootin Boogie, Cotton Eyed Joe, Biker Shuffle, Soulja Boy, and Teach Me How To Doggie.

Small wedding reception - no problem

Feel The Sound with Music In Motion and Snap Shot Photo Booth  had one of our busiest weekends this spring.  Although Summer started on Saturday our Music In Motion DJ's were all busy with Proms, Graduation parties, and weddings.  Let us BLOG about Mr. and Mrs. Michael Shedlock who got married and had there wedding reception at Shady Wagon in New Hill, NC just outside of Apex  Shady Wagon Farm spends Monday through Thursday, morning to night, up-keeping their property.  They do on occasions have corporate weekly events however, with that occasional exception they work hard with the upkeep and it shows in their several hundred acres of well groomed landscape property.  Getting married with the view of the lake behind you under the altar is an incredible view.  The reception dinner is held inside the decorative wooden barn, followed by the dancing, and celebration just outside under the beautiful scenic terrace.  Shady Wagon sure has our vote and another person who has our vote is Lynn Scott of Happily Ever After Wedding Coordination and Decor rental specialist did it all right for the Bride and Groom at Shady Wagon. Precise, on time, attention to detail, excellent communication, flawless, and a delight to work with. Our team had the opportunity to sit down with Lynn and enjoy an amazing meal provided by our other partnering friends "Catering by Design" who we will Blog in a moment but Lynn was so happy with our performance that she has agreed to add our entertainment DJ/MC company onto the Shady Wagon's preferred vendor list and that makes us very proud as well as very appreciative. Give Lynn a call and upon your first conversation you will know that Happily Ever After will be your right choice as your professional event planner!  Catering by Design, My Goodness they had a buffet filled with the best southern food ever!  Uh huh!, we kid you not!  You must, we say MUST give them an opportunity for a tasting when planning your next wedding or event, ask for Stephen Gade and tell them Music In Motion sent you:-)
Now check out the amazing and fun pics of this very intimate and small wedding reception (only 26 guests).  The competition would curl up and not know how to get such a small crowd up off their feet but Music In Motion Dj's pulled it off - no problem.  No wedding or event to large or to big for US, the wedding and event experts.  For more successful BLOG happenings and other events visit  and for more pics of this and other successful events check out our Facebook

First Dance under the Flashlights...?

That's correct, our DJ, event DJ, Wedding DJ, Disc Jockey, Karaoke, Decor ambient event lighting, and photo booth - Snap Shot Photo Booth entertainment company pulled it off when the venue unfortunately had a power outage at the end of our wedding reception dinner over this past weekend.  This due to a car accident outside the venue taking down an electrical transformer on a telephone pole.  Two hours, no power, and not the fault of the venue... as a matter of fact our company has just signed onto the venue as a preferred vendor - The Embassy Suites Raleigh, NC at Crabtree  Not only is this venue location real convenient but Debbie Kearney (Director of Catering) at the Embassy Suites, Raleigh, NC was a real delight to work with and very accommodating.  May we strongly recommend inquiring when seeking your next venue for your next event or wedding reception and the food OMG absolutely delicious...emm emm.  OK so moving on... losing power this long at the wedding reception we had to improvise and the Embassy Suites gathered up flashlights and with a powered Bluetooth speaker we made the first dance happen, followed by some serenading in the dark, then the power came back on, and we all celebrated with the sounds of Music In Motion DJ's with non stop dancing until the very end.  For more pics of this amazing wedding celebration with Mr. & Mrs. Donovan as well as other related current and past events visit our Facebook page; and for daily updates with our fun and exciting Raleigh, NC based entertainment company check out our daily BLOG

Line Dances at your wedding or next event

Yesterday our DJ, event DJ, wedding Disc Jockey, Karaoke, Decor LED ambient wall up-lighting, and photo booth, Snap Shot Photo Booth entertainment company 919.880.2625 brought you the concept of "circle dances" on the dance floor.  Today let's take a moment to tell you about "line dances" on the dance floor, unless requested by the Client or Bride/Groom on a do not play list to have no lines dances played, (do not play list is provided as an option on our DJ planner) then line dances are 90% done at every event from Children, to teen, to adult dancing, and like with a circle dance they are fun to do and even if you don't line dance they are fun to sit back at your table and watch everyone line dance. Fact: Line dances are entertaining to watch and fun to do.  The pics below of everyone participating and the smiles on their faces make line dancing a success at any event - old or young.  Some examples of famous line dances are;  The Wobble by V.I.C., Cha Cha Slide by Casper, Cupid Shuffle by Cupid, and Copperhead Road by Steve Earl.  Once the original Electric Slide came out by Marcia Griffiths followed the Marcarena by Los del Rio and before these and we are dating our experience was The Hustle by Van McCoy, then anyone out there remember the Hully Gully by The Olympics?  Line dances are becoming more and more popular today.  Can be seen on YouTube & Lately the Biker Shuffle by The Biker Boyz has been requested a lot.  And hey what about Cotton Eyed Joe and The Conga Line...which is your favorite line dance?  For more Line Dancing, Circle Dancing, fun dancing articles, pics and topics visit or Facebook page And for more interesting articles visit our daily BLOG

Circle Dances at your wedding/event

Our Disc Jockey, event DJ, wedding DJ, Karaoke, Decor LED ambient wall up-lighting, and Photo Booth - Snap Shot Photo Booth entertainment company, Feel The Sound with Music In Motion DJ's performs DJ/MC services for a variety of events and Weddings.  During the non stop dancing that our DJ's supply at every event we have the ability to formulate a circle of Guests on the dance floor with the Bride-N-Groom.
How is this actually done?
Either we MC the encouragement when the moment is right OR sometimes everyone will just simply circle during a song on the dance floor and what happens next is each person will take a turn doing a solo dance - enjoying the spotlight, starting from one end of the circle to the next, and having fun taking turns, whether a good dancer or not, everybody's doing it.  It's a mixture;  a mixture of our DJ MC skills and the right song to encourage (DJ expertise) all to circle around on the dance floor and so yes, there is an MC method when done right with respect to our professional talent selecting the right song that will work because not every song will work as a circle dance. Some suggestions: "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge, "Pump Up The Jam" by Technotronics, or "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson.  For more interesting articles visit our daily BLOG  For our daily happenings + additional pics of all our successful weddings and other exciting events visit our Facebook:
