Last month, Lisa Sebastiani and I hosted PAMPI’s prom themed awards gala at the Logan Hotel in center city Philadelphia. Prior to the gala, Allery Elder, their Special Events Director, approached me with their theme, I was so excited! Since Michelle Lee Entertainment specializes in unique corporate events, I couldn’t wait to put a modern twist on this old school party!
Currently, a lot of artists are re-mixing house music with 80’s classics. One song in particular is Kygo’s tropical house version of “Take On Me” by A-Ha. I knew right away this was one of the songs I wanted to incorporate into my playlist! So yes it is true! I took Kygo to the prom!
What’s more? I also invited Lisa to play with me so we could feature our “DJ & Electric Violin” – adding the “different” aspect. Lisa and I thought it was also a great time for her to play her cover of Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir. What was the outcome? An exciting event!

“From the moment I told DJ Shelly the theme for our gala this year was “Prom”, she jumped on board immediately! This amazing lady grasped our concept and ran with it. She played eclectic remixes of nostalgic classics, bringing us all back to the time of our lives. She even had an woman playing an electric violin show up and play along with her!
I cannot thank her enough for helping create a successful, classy, and fun event!!! I would highly recommend her for her creativity, her professionalism during the process, and her execution.”

About the music!
I loved Kygo the first time I heard, “Cut Your Teeth”. It was just so different and “chill worthy.” As a child of the 80’s, I remember listening to “Take On Me” over and over again. It was one of the biggest songs of that time. You can imagine how excited I was to hear Kygo’s tropical house spin on this 80’s classic! Not only was is perfect for this prom themed event, it’s the perfect song to add to your summer playlist. Thanks Kygo!
