Gratitude in Groove: My Debut DJing my Hometown's Annual Chamber of Commerce Gala

The 2024 Annual Chamber of Commerce Gala in Matthews, NC, marked a significant milestone in local community events. As a Marine Corps veteran and native of Matthews, I had the privilege of DJing this prestigious gathering, an experience that held personal significance.

Held at the Emerald Golf Lake Club, the venue provided an elegant backdrop for the gala, contributing to the overall ambiance of the evening. Attendees were treated to a seamless experience, thanks to meticulous planning and execution by event organizers.

The dance floor had some jump after the formalities, fueled by a mix of music that catered to diverse tastes. Requests from attendees added a personal touch to the evening.


Overall, the event was a great celebration of the businesses in our town. Combined with music, memories, and community spirit, this gala produced a fun result. Thank you for letting me share this incredible experience.
