COSI’s 50th Anniversary Party

As most of those in Central Ohio know, the folks at COSI wrapped up their 50th Anniversary Party this past weekend. Media outlets from all across Central Ohio, including radio, television, newspaper, and online sources helped promote this once-in-a-lifetime event which was completely sold out!

In early January, J.T. Michaels Entertainment was originally contacted and asked to provide both DJ & karaoke services on Saturday, March 29th. We couldn’t have been more thrilled! Quite a bit of preparation behind the scenes took place in the weeks/months leading up to this date. For us, it was making sure we had enough karaoke slips/pencils to accommodate such a large crowd making their way in/out of the ballroom, double-checking backup gear, audio/video cables, AA batteries, and going over the playlist several times.

On Saturday, we arrived at 4pm sharp to begin load-in. Much like Hollywood Casino Columbus or some of the other larger buildings here in town, there’s quite a bit of distance to travel. What seems like endless hallways, elevators to get in/out of, twist & turns, doors to go through…but by 5pm all DJ gear was in the room, and by 5:30pm, the sound check was complete. The huge ballroom featured an 80’s theme and vendors were on-hand from local restaurants with food/drinks to try out. At 7pm, the doors opened and we started out by providing background dinner music, then began taking karaoke requests about an hour later. What a party! Things wrapped up around 11pm. We were simply amazed by the incredible singers and numerous karaoke requests!

We couldn’t be happier for COSI and their 50th year here in Columbus, Ohio. J.T. Michaels Entertainment is proud to have been a part of such a major event this past weekend. Thank you!
