Just wanted to write a quick post about a venue I had the privilege of performing at for this first time last weekend:
The Hobbs Building - Feasts of Fancy
1427 W 9th St # 201
Kansas City, MO 64101-3201
I've worked at a LOT of venues around town, but this was one of the best experiences I've had. They're operation is TOP NOTCH from start to finish.
Almost three months prior to the wedding, I met with Gail to take a look at the venue, and it is truly a unique space. They even have a outdoor patio, that during the warmer months makes a VERY cool place to have your cocktail party. Gail provided me with a time line the SHE had made (99% of the time this is left up to the Bride, and ultimately the DJ), a diagram of what the setup would look like, even the color scheme.
When I arrived on the night of the wedding, I was given a updated timeline and Gail explained to me where the Bride and Groom would be "hiding" prior to the Grand Entrance. Usually I ask the bartender to have drinks ready for when the couple arrives, but Gail had already taken care of that, and everything else!
Gail, the event manger stayed the ENTIRE night, and actively managed the party. The event staff help release guests to the buffet, reset the chairs when they got up, and made the entire event run smoothly.
The reception went great, and this was actually the FIRST wedding I've ever DJed where (other than the first and parent dances), there were NO SLOW SONGS!!! The guest had an awesome time, the wedding couple was happy, even the photographer (who ALSO had some phenomenal shots) commented on what a great reception it was.
If you're looking for a top notch wedding, you MUST check out the Hobbs Building and p.binder photography... and of COURSE Sound Extreme Entertainment :)
