    This past weekend it was the Hmong New Year celebration at the Greenheck Fieldhouse in Wausau and thank goodness they had it there..they needed the room! The event was filled with great costumes, dancing, singing..love, love, loved it! I went because I have gone to other cultural get togethers and for a photographer..they're always a tremendous photo opportunity. Thanks to the organizers for letting me snap a few to capture their heritage..!! (photo by Dave Kallaway)

  • Benefit Concert planned for Sandy Victims..

    Posted by Dave Kallaway

    BENEFIT CONCERT SCHEDULED FRIDAY FOR SANDY VICTIMS...

    Line 'em up! The right thing to do is happening Friday. Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel..artists who are connected to the areas effected by Superstorm Sandy will do a benefit concert on NBC TV to raise money for the victims. Also on tap for the concert..Christina Aguilera, Sting, and Jimmy Fallon. My guess is that the list will grow. Also..it'll be hosted by the Today Show's Matt Lauer. So let's tune in, dig the tunes, and get ready to help those who lost so much in Superstorm Sandy.

  • Surfing Hurricane Sandy...

    You're not nuts..THESE GUYS ARE!! They carry the same motto that news people carry and that is "When everybody else is running away from danger..you're running TO it!!" Whereas there's tons and tons of horrible stories from billions of dollars in damage..but for these guys it's like SWEET!

  • Top 5 Words That Make You Sound Dumb...

    Posted by Dave Kallaway

    Top 5 Words that Make You Sound Dumb..and we added one!

    The story came out this morning about the "Top 5 words that make you sound dumb"..plus it seemed like the list was missing one. The words are..Like, Basically, Honestly, Literally, and Actually. The ones we hear used in the wrong way the most are "Like" and "Literally." As in "Justin Beiber like came on stage and I literally jumped out of my skin!!" As you know..if you "like" do something..then you didn't do that one thing...you did something LIKE it..but not that task itself. Also..the word "literally"...wow..if you "Literally jumped out of your skin!!!" You'd be bones, right?? LOL. The one we added was "Totally"...because that gets used a ton. But maybe it's a word that really explains what you need to say. Also another over used word "Amazing"..think about it next time you say "That Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich is Awesome!!" Is it really??

  • OH BABY!! DISCO CURES CANCER 15 !!!

    OH BABY!!! DISCO CURES CANCER 15 !!!!

    disco

    I DJ'ed our annual HUGE WIFC Disco Cures Cancert this year and man..it's all about flow!! I had Belky on standby in case I needed a break..after all..it is a 5 hour dance. But you find as a club DJ that if you create a good flow and people are dancing that you do not want to stop that flow. Belky came a few times and asked "you okay? You need me to jump in..?" And I said no..cause the flow rules. Thanks a gazillion for coming out everybody!! Props to Aspirus Cancer Care, the Rothschild Pavillion, Underground DJs, and all our sponsors for making it one of our best Discos ever!!

John Travolta was at the top of his game with this..PLUS..the dance floor lit up..the Bee Bees were doing "You Should Be Dancing"...all the ingredients of an awesome night! Hope to see you at the Rothschild Pavillion Friday...I'm your DJ this year!!
