MUSIC HEALS — PENNY PARTIES — Cynthia Cherish Malaran

People ask me what kind of music I like to play. I always say the kind that makes us forget our jobs.

I am blessed to be DJing in accompaniment with greats such as Nile Rodgers, Kathy Sledge, We Are Family Foundation, Three Dot Dash, Galinsky... and it is such a beautiful thing to bring my own talented crew of sax players, guitarists, percussionists and beatboxers along for the ride. And, what a ride it is. buckle up!

I simply represent excitement to be alive, discovery and creating great, new memories. For me and for you.

There are not enough words of praise for Cherish the Luv. She listened to our every want and wish and created a playlist that had even the "I don't dance" people grooving! We had some weird choices on our playlists (from Pearl Jam to Miley Cyrus) and even could only find youtube links for some traditional Albanian songs but Cherish had it covered and then some. Not to mention all of our friends saying how relaxing her voice was when emcee'ing! Everyone (literally. everyone!) raved about Cherish and fought over who could book her for the next event. Thank you thank you thank you for being great and helping these two teachers' dream day come true!

Outstanding job DJ CherishTheLuv! Cynthia exhibited all the professional traits that you look for in a wedding dj. She played to the crowd and had everyone up and dancing. We had a range of requests to play, including Lithuanian polkas, heavy metal and Taylor Swift. DJ CherishTheLuv seamlessly segued between a range of genres and played the right songs for the right moments. We highly recommend DJ CherishTheLuv!
