Seattle Parties, Seattle’s Best Party Planners!

IMGP5449
Seattle Parties just announced a new partnership as preferred DJ vendors at Melrose Market Studios!

IMGP5450

Seattle Parties offer entertainment services for events, including weddings, corporate, holiday, private soirees, benefits, birthdays, and product launches. They are proud to have been named the top DJ company in Seattle Bride Magazine’s Best of 2012

IMGP5458

Owners Leslie and Sean Wheatley have run Seattle Parties since 1998. Starting off in the club scene, they were instrumental in bringing the swing dance craze to Seattle. Soon, couples asked for DJ Leslie to do their weddings while corporate event planners were seeking out Leslie’s entertainment expertise for their lavish parties.

Contacts with many of the local musicians allowed Seattle Parties to offer the best bands in town, including the Dusty 45?s, Monty Banks and other local and national acts. By the year 2000, both Sean and Leslie were full time wedding and event DJs and Seattle Parties was on its way as a leader in event entertainment in the Northwest.

Oktoberfest!

Beer on the Pier!

The Anacortes Chamber of Commerce kicks off an inaugural beer festival on Saturday, October 9 from 12:00-6:00 p.m. at the Port Warehouse in Anacortes. Anacortes Oktoberfest – “Beer on the Pier” – the event promises to be a highlight for beer lovers. The $20 entry fee entitles attendees to six pours; additional pours may be purchased for $1.50 each. The event will also feature live music and a variety of food vendors. For those staying over, there will be a number of local events on Saturday evening.

Event co-organizer Rick Star of Rockfish Grill/Anacortes Brewery stated: “Through our business, we attend many beer festivals throughout the Northwest each year. Our goal with the Anacortes Oktoberfest was to take the best elements of each, provide patrons with a host of choices, and build the event into an enjoyable experience for brewers and attendees alike. Gauged by brewery participation, the event will be the largest Oktoberfest in Washington State, providing event-goers with an opportunity to meet-and-greet brewers from throughout the Pacific Northwest. We look forward to building a wonderful recurring festival-one that people will want to return to year after year.”
