SiloSix DJ and Event Services

2013 Updates

SiloSix is on a bit of a hiatus with DJ work while re-entering the "proverbial woodshed' to touch up on development skills and do something with the massive amount of data strewn amongs a half-dozen systems and a sizable collection of disks and DVD media. After 15 years of projects ranging from client logos, music recordings, personal productions, software tools, web design to repair guides and personal data, I have found myself with an un-wieldly library of information that is in dire need of review, disposition, and organization. I'll post my DIR to ISO shell and C# scripts that have proven to be indespensible in the process; otherwise I'd be forces to manually archive 1000's of folders/projects. As painful as this has been, it's is paying dividends already by making availalble a substantial body of knowledge and components that I can now draw from in the future - saving much time and engergy and resulting in better results and products.
This site will soon be demoted with another taking its place. I DO love Drupal, but a recent journey into PHP revealed that a custom CMS was not only readily achievable, but would allow me to focus on how "I" want to develop my solution for storing, presenting, and archiving my works and the resources they represent. Additionally, I've become enthralled with a Web application testing tool called Selenium 'WebDriver' and I plan on creating a target site that will allow me to learn, practice, document, and archive the underlying API and logic for leveraging it as an automation test tool. Creating my own target site will allow me to add components as required to exercise a concept or feature.
Check back after april/may and there should be something in place that I can stand behind. In the meantime, feel free to browse and if you have any DJ, computing, or consulting needs I'm only an email away.
 
Best Regards!

About SiloSix

16th Birthday Party dancingDJ SiloSix provides top notch services at unbeatable pricing. With experience with a wide array of event types as well as a deep history in music dating back as far as 1996. SiloSix accidentally entered into the DJ market by way of emcee'ing at Ride Night events at Applebee's St. Johns in 2000-2002. During that time, a corporate career with Dresser, Inc. was budding in their product test department where responsibilities centered around creating test plans and developing automation test frameworks to ensure exceptional product quality. Simultaneously, an import from Indianapolis by the name of James Q. Davis was met on the job and a long-term music production relationship was born. We partnered with Ben Blank Audio and I was mentored until 2003 when we opened shop in Waco, Texas under the 5One Media Group title. 5One Media Group mixing roomLocated right outside the Richland Mall, the new boutique 'one-stop-shop' included a full blown audio recording and mixing suite, graphics and print media suite, and a videography recording and mixing suite. The shop received accolades from the Rapoport Foundation for our Y.A.M.O. (Youth Alternative Media Organization) urban youth mentoring program (now partnered with TSU's WALIP Preparatory Academy) and Baylor University for services provided to their music programs. Side jobs mixing live performances from R&B to Rock filled in what little time was still available. In 2005, a new position in the product deployment team at Dresser brought new challenges with massive amounts of travel leading up to 70+ hour weeks. In 2006, the team decided to migrate back to Austin as the benefits of low overhead were losing to the commute. After accepting DJ work sporadically over the previous several years, 2006 brought new demands for the work and it was realized the logistics with providing those services were exceedingly more simple - particularly with current corporate workloads. A relationship was built with SAKs 5th Avenue that continues through to this day, and non-retail events such as weddings, birthdays, and holiday events began to ramp us as well. Resident DJ work was accepted for several Applebee's locations from 2008 to early January 2011. So 2012 is now upon us and DJ SiloSix is excited to apply these experiences and the skill sets acquired Kids Fashion Show, Lakeline Mall, Cedar Park, Texasalong the way to making sure your event is everything you hope for. Very few DJs have been full circle from musician and song-writer, to engineer and producer, to event coordinator, DJ and emcee. Where some may have top notch scratching skills or are radio personalities nothing can replace a solid understanding of the technical and ethereal aspects of audio, how to treat clients and their attendees or how to deliver clean sounding and deft seques from songs and announcements. Additionally, the professionalism developed within the demanding corporate world with executives and deadlines and (more importantly) the fundamental act of CARING sets DJ SiloSix apart from the crowd. Please check out the available mixes and feel free to contact us via email or one of our contact forms to let us know about your event and how we can be of assistance. We tout a 100% satisfaction rate and can provide references upon request.

Thanks again for visiting and have a look around at the photography, digital art and music aggregated on this site!
