SLA has a big reputation for its dances. When we’re in need of a fundraiser and bake sales just aren’t enough, dances seem to be always the way to go. The most recent dance, held on Friday February 1st, was a fundraiser for the Liverpool Exchange program as well as the Junior Prom.
The previous DJ for the school was Alumnus Rashaun Williams (’12)–known as the famous DJ Reezy. Now there is a new DJ who is ready to take Rashaun’s place: Sophomore Adam Feliciano, otherwise known as DJ Phaze.
Feliciano promotes his events by making and putting up flyers.
“In order for me to meet up with the previous DJ’s standards, I’ve simply had to make my mark and make my name known,” he said.
Junior Lexy Babcock, who was working at the dance, liked what she saw.
“He looked like he really cared about everything he was doing while he was up there,” she said.
Another dance attendee, Junior Dalena Bui mentioned, “When the dance was over, Adam went up to almost everyone personally and thanked them for coming to the dance.”
But what is it that makes our dances so popular? – The music! DJ Phaze played hits including, “Gangnam Style” by Psy, “Cupid Shuffle” by Cupid, as well as a lot of Dubstep style music.
What is his key to success? –
“Always staying up to date with the hottest songs in the market,” he told SLAMedia.
