Birthday parties are big. A 60th birthday is even bigger. But a surprise 60th birthday, well that’s just off the charts.

Adrian and his amazing family kept him in the dark for a few months and somehow managed to assemble 60-plus people at his home for a pretty awesome surprise. It’s pretty amazing to take part in a celebration for someone who truly has been an inspiration to so many.

I served as the birthday party DJ and played upbeat tunes from many of the past decades. The party was attended by people of all ages, so as usual in these situations, it's important to keep guests happy and honor as may requests as possible.

The Arambulo’s are a great family and I had a pleasure working with them.
