Our Charity Work
We also donate our time and DJ for charitable events as well as holding our own events to raise money for charity, raising over $30,000 for local individuals and families in need.
For the past 16 autumns, we’ve put together our annual semi-organized golf tournament. It brings people together for a day of fun and to raise money for a local charity. This year will be our 17th tournament and will take place on Monday September 26th, 2016 at The Woodstock Golf Club and will support The Mothers’ Club of Northern Dutchess Hospital and The Madison Creagan Memorial Fund. Each year benefits a different cause. Here are a few of the charities we have helped over the years…
American Cancer Society
Boys and Girls Club of Kingston
Children’s Home Of Kingston
CJ Foundation for SIDS
Family Domestic Violence Services
Family of Woodstock
Habitat For Humanity
Lymphoma Research Foundation
The Soup Kitchen
Woodstock Day School Scholarship Fund
Our Annual Pisces Party
ductions-DJ-Dave-Leonard-Pisces-Party.jpg”>Every year since 1985 on the first weekend of March, Dave holds his annual Pisces Party. It’s an opportunity for the community to come out of the winter cold and dance up a storm. Each year, the Pisces Party raises money for a local charity or family or in need and this year we are making a weekend of it. Friday March 6th at BSP in Kingston and Saturday March 7th at Bearsville Theater. Here are a few pictures of Pisces Parties past.
Rachel, in response to your inquiry about Dave as our dj…
We actually only used Dave– for our ceremony and our reception– and did not have a band at all. Dave was more money than the other DJ’s we had met with, and I have to say, was absolutely worth every penny.
Throughout the process Dave, and everyone at JTD, were very professional, friendly and easy to get in touch with– which can be a tough find anywhere. When we started planning our wedding last summer we found out very quickly just how hard it can be to find somebody like that. Their website is also top notch– once you are signed up with JTD; you can search through their entire library of music, which made all of our music planning much easier.
In terms of Dave’s DJ’ing at our ceremony– Dave, unlike a lot of other DJ’s we met with (five in total), really seems to love and appreciate music, and when my wife and I explained to him that we like a mix of punk rock, country, hip hop and oldies, it didn’t phase him a bit and he managed to play music that we liked while keeping the energy level high all night long– and kept the dance floor packed with people old and young throughout the evening. In short– I LOVE DAVE. I recommend him with no reservation. If there are any questions I didn’t answer, please feel free to call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx or you can certainly email me as well.

What a party! The music was exceptionally good! It was great to see people dancing and truly getting into enjoying themselves. You really know how to get a party moving and can sense the party pulse. That is a real art! I think we’ll be talking about this party for a long time. It will help us cruise into the new year with lots of good feelings. Thank you so much for the donation of your services and for bringing so much energy and joy to all of us. You’re the best!
