LJDJ’s Scores Big at Mobile Beat Las Vegas 2016!

LJDJ’s Scores Big at Mobile Beat Las Vegas 2016!

By Calynn M Lawrence

If you haven’t been living under a rock then you have probably caught wind of one of the hottest up and coming entertainment and event companies around, LJDJ’s! LJDJ’s is a full time international entertainment and production company. They swear by their ability to create an even better experience than you and your loved ones ever imagined. They have been in business, changing the game for 17 years plus and they are not slowing down! This is evident in their latest score with their RFID bracelets at the 20th Annual Mobile Beat Las Vegas Convention 2016. Here’s what happened.

In case you did not know, Mobile Beat is an online and editorial magazine that serves to inspire party professionals and those who aim to entertain. They focus on spotlighting the latest technology, upcoming professionals, trends and tips for successful business ventures and event planning execution. Because of this, the magazine rightfully boasts that they have globally boosted bookings, improved performances and escalated many businesses. Aside from their magazine, they host events and conventions. One of which was their convention in 2016, located in Las Vegas, Mobile Beat Las Vegas. Anybody who’s anybody was there, including LJDJs very own Bryan Laycock and Jack Bermeo.

While in attendance, the people at LJDJ’s had an awesome time, enjoying not only the business benefits, networking opportunities and learning experiences but they thrived on the great atmosphere and fun spirit that was provided! One of their biggest accomplishments at the event was their time working with multi-award winning party hardy mogul Redfoo from the band LMFAO.


They allowed him to use their RFID bracelets that contain the latest technology and he was impressed to the point where he requested to have them at his future shows. What a huge win for them! Given his extensive experience in the industry, his approval evokes accomplishment, as his opinion is very weighted.

What makes these bracelets so appealing? Well, in short, there is an RFID chip placed inside of the bracelet so that it can send out radio waves. This technology is seen at Disney World and other them parks where you the guests, can now be part of an extravagant show! The way this product worked for MBLV was very interactive and entertaining for the guest. 500 RFID Bracelets were passed out through out the venue and a simple DMX controller controlled them all. This Technology is so advanced that we can enable more features like when you walk into your event, it automatically registers you as a scheduled guest, given that you were in fact a scheduled guest with an activated RFID wristband, and allows for speedy entry with little to no hastle! LJDJ’s has taken this concept and stepped it up by adding their own touch and taking innovative thoughts from “ideas to execution. Speaking on their RFID Bracelet services, the site quotes the following: “We put each guest right in the middle of the action where they instantly become part of a show. We add energy and emotion to any event, providing the nonverbal cues that draw people together and define memorable moments for your guests.”


As you can see, this new technology is hot and will be surfacing at all of the coolest events! It’s convenient, simple and effective. On top of that, it is backed by some of the most respected entertainers in the game right now. Artists such as Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Coldplay and Tiesto have been utilizing them at their concerts for a little while now. It is only a matter of time before you see them at every happening event around! If you would like more information on LJDJ’s take on this fiery festive technology, in addition to their other fantastic services, you may visit them at the website linked below!

Blue by Betsey Johnson

The clash of punk rock edginess meets elegant trends in the Wedding Industry.

LJDJs had the pleasure of hosting another event for the one and only Betsey Johnson, One of Americas top fashion designers best known for her feminine punk rock designs meet todays fashion standards. The event was a great success with the release of Betsey’s new line titled “Blue by Betsey Johnson.”

Betsey Hosting with Crystal and Jack

This industry is consistently known for elegance and a traditional look. Betsey’s line defiantly takes it up a notch with her chic but punk rock look. The line introduces a different option for brides but still offers somewhat of its own personality.


The event took place in New York City at the Steve Madden hand bag headquarters with appearances by none other than Betsey herself. Once again LJDJs had their signature photo party booth present, which allowed fans and bloggers to snap pictures with Betsey and models. LJ also worked directly with Betsey’s personal assistants to be sure the event embodied the vision of “Blue by Betsey.” A special quest DJ made an appearance better known as LJDJs very own DJ Crystal Vargas, who was requested by Betsey!

LJDJs Collaborates With Capezio, Maddie
Ziegler, Steve Madden Group and Betsey Johnson

By Calynn M. Lawrence

 Fashion is about embodying your personality within the garments
that you choose to wear. After all, you want to view your clothes as a canvas
for the art form that is character. Dress to express, not to impress!
 The team at LJDJ’s are certainly familiar with fashion being so important in the overall impact of presentation and atmosphere. Event host attire must be cohesive with the event that they are working. The event host is literally the life of the party and should act, speak and certainly dress as such!
            Jack Bermeo and his team at LJDJs recently hosted the official launch party of Capezio’s new dance wear line. The line is in partnership with Steve Madden Group, Betsey Johnson and their new Brand Ambassador Maddie Ziegler . This was an exciting time for LJ as they have achieved many things and formed countless reputable connections within the industry. However, this is definitely one of their biggest collaborations yet!

The event was held at Capezio’s NYC flagship store and featured appearances by Maddie Ziegler and Betsey Johnson! Fans were able to meet and greet the celebrities and have their pictures taken with them (Which was then immediately print by our LJ photo party booth). LJDJs collaborated with the marketing teams of each fashion house in order to design an event which embodied the personalities of each of the celebrities.

 Thanks to CAPEZIO, they were awarded this opportunity to be able to make such a big move in the industry. They were welcomed into their family and warmly accepted for this endeavor!

The Top 10 Best Wedding Favors!

The Top 10 Best Wedding Favors!

 Have you ever been to a wedding where you came home with an awesome wedding favor? It probably made the wedding even more memorable. Are you planning a wedding and need some ideas on favors that your guests will actually like? Here are the Top 10 Best Wedding Favors that LJDJs compiled. Well, at least we think they are pretty rad!

  1. Photo Booth Photos

Keep your wedding day memories alive with a photo booth for your guests to enjoy. You have a couple of options with this. You can rent an actual photo booth where your guests can sit and snap some silly shots of themselves, or you can create a DIY photo backdrop and have your photographer take Polaroid’s of your guests that they can take home. If you have an open bar, this might be the best way for your sloshed guests to remember how much fun they had at your wedding. How about recording a VIDEO testimonial? We even have GREEN screen capabilities that will allow your guests to morph themselves in a customized background. You name it, we can design it. With todays high tech apps and more, our newest booth will give your event the most memorable experience like no other. Take a look!   https://vimeo.com/121378453

  1. Flip Flops

Just about everyone wears flip-flops at some point. And with weddings that have awesome music playing where the guests are tearing up the dance floor, flip flops are a great favor because people can put them on at the reception to be more comfortable. This is a great option for summer or beach weddings. Your guests are likely to wear their flops again once the fun is done.

  1. Personalized Champagne/Wine Corks or Drinking Glass

I’m not talking about putting the couple’s name on drinking glasses. I’m talking about putting each guest’s name on them. I attended the wedding of two good friends who did this and it was so creative! The flutes were used to make the wedding toast and now my husband, I, and even our toddler (for future use, of course) have our own champagne glasses with our names on them. We’ll never forget where these incredible flutes came from.  I forgot to mention, the corks are pretty cool to have. You never know when your going to finish your bottle of wine.

  1. Treats From a Take-Home Bar

Giving your guests a sweet to take home as a wedding favor is a wonderful thought. However, not everyone likes the same flavors. Setting up a take-home bar that offers a variety of treats is a good alternative. Provide little goody bags for your guests to fill up with their favorites. You can go with candy, marshmallows, even nuts, raisins and other snacks like goldfish or pretzels. You can have this option in addition to, or instead of a traditional wedding cake.

  1. Recipe Books

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make your diet more diverse. I get sick of eating the same foods over and over. And while I’m admittedly a horrible cook (seriously, ask my husband), I still enjoy trying new recipes. Even if you aren’t an avid cooker, a recipe book is a cute wedding favor that may come in handy even if you think you won’t use it often. If the recipes come from the bride and groom, or important people in their life, that makes the favor even more special.

  1. S’mores/Hot Chocolate

Unless you have a screw loose, or you are allergic to chocolate, you have to admit that s’mores are one of the best winter treats. Heck, they are one of the best treats, period. So if you’re having a winter wedding, your guests will love receiving all the fixins for making s’mores, or even some hot chocolate mix. Don’t just warm their hearts with your love, warm them with your wedding favor. Awwww….so cute.

  1. Junk Trucks or Drunk Trucks

Think your guests are stuffed from an evening of great food? Not when they come outside and see our exclusive JUNK/DRUNK TRUCKs. Choose from your favorite snacks including Dunkin Donuts, White Castle burgers, McDonalds and/or any fast food chain restaurant goodies. Have your guests ransack our snack truck to satisfy their munchies. Want a more personalized experience. Ask our staff about upgrading to some of your favorite foods.

LJDJs Wedding “Abads”

  1. Pop Culture Cake Pops                                                                                                                                                                       Lollipops made from cake? Yummy! How can anyone resist such a delightful treat? With the ability to customize these sweet creations, giving your wedding guests a cake pop favor is a deliciously creative idea. Choose the same flavor(s) as your wedding cake, or go with something totally different- maybe even a variety of flavors. If you want to give your wedding guests cake pop favors, and you’re in the New Jersey or New York area, check out  Pop Culture Cake Pops.

  1. Personalized Wine Bottles

You can’t really go wrong by giving people alcohol as a gift. Wine is known for being a classy and sophisticated way to show people appreciation. That’s why people often bring wine as a small gesture when going to a dinner party. So a personalized wine bottle makes a great wedding favor. You can find inexpensive wine bottles and create custom labels to put on them. In fact, mini wine bottles are really cute and the perfect size to use as wedding favors. You can either put your name and wedding date on the label, or put each guest’s name. It could double as both a wedding favor and a seating card. How creative and unique is that?

  1. Homemade Goodness

While candy wedding favors can be hit or miss, small jars of a homemade sauce or spice are usually a big hit. Even for guests who don’t do a lot of cooking, a specially made edible delight is something they will enjoy. Whether it’s a BBQ sauce, a jam, or a uniquely flavored olive oil, your guests are sure to love taking home a special, one-of-a-kind indulgence.

The 10 Dumbest Wedding Party Favors!

The 10 Dumbest Wedding Party Favors


If you’ve ever been to a wedding, you probably went home with a wedding favor. But have you ever received one that was just dumb? One that you would never use and didn’t want to take home with you? If you’re planning your wedding, don’t be the couple that hands out stupid favors. Here are 10 wedding favors not to give your guests- ever.


  1. Monogrammed Coasters

Monogrammed coasters? Really? Your wedding guests do not want to set their beer on a coaster with your initials and/or wedding date on it. Not to mention, it might not match their home decor or style.

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 7.14.45 PMphoto, Style Me Pretty c/o Brooke Courtney Photography


  1. CD of Wedding Songs

First of all, many people have transitioned into digital music formats and don’t even listen to CDs anymore. But also, your guests don’t have an emotional attachment to the songs that symbolize your relationship with your spouse.

  1. Framed Name Placecards

Some people like to get fancy and use framed name place cards to indicate where their wedding guests will sit. That’s fine, if you want to do that. But don’t double up and use those place cards as wedding favors. What on earth will people do with them after the wedding?

  1. Monogrammed Golf Balls

Unless you know that all of your wedding guests are avid golfers, don’t give any wedding favors that have to do with the sport. Those golf balls will just end up in the trash…and some random Arnold Palmer wannabe might dig it out and get his golf game on with your name and wedding date flying across the green.

  1. Bubbles

It’s fine to hand out bubbles for your wedding guests to blow as you make your exit after the reception. But nobody wants to take them home. When are grown men and women going to blow bubbles again?

  1. A Charity Donation

Couples of the philanthropic mindset might want to make a charity donation in their guests’ honor. The problem is, your guests might not support your charity of choice. And they will probably then start receiving tons of correspondence from that charity. Want to anger some wedding guests? Make a donation in their name.

  1. Flower Seeds

Maybe you love to garden. But maybe your wedding guests don’t. Even if flower seeds match the theme or season of your wedding, don’t tell your guests “thank you” with a cheap bag of something they might not use.

  1. Anything With Photos

Your wedding guests love you, but not the way you love your spouse. They don’t need anything with your photo on it. That’s creepy, actually. Save your favorite photographs for your living room, not the wedding reception tables.

  1. Magnets

Even if all of your wedding guests use magnets, they don’t need one with your wedding info on it. It’s your special day, not theirs, so they don’t need a reminder staring them in the face every time they open the refrigerator.

  1. Votive Candles

These are one of the most common wedding favors given. But if your wedding guests wanted votive candles, they would buy some. If you imprint your initials/name/wedding date on the candles, your guests won’t want to burn them. And a candle with nothing on it…how impersonal and cheap.
