Nostalgia Prom – Sponsored by Complete Weddings & Events
Nothing beats the classics, and you’ll always find yourself enjoying classic beats. Our Nostalgia Prom Friday night dance is themed around unforgettable, retro memories. Whether you’re out to jam to your favorite school mixtapes or chiptune MIDI beeps and bops, we invite you to cut a rug out on our dance floor (except don’t actually cut it-cut it cause it’s a very nice rug).
Featured DJ – Doug “MeloD” Meloche
Stepping onto the music scene in New Mexico, he began to set the tone for backyard block parties combining Latin Pop with Dance Hits from the 80s & 90s. Establishing a foothold in the performing arts, MeloD was named Mr. THS of 2007 with his energetic dance routine to “What Is Love” by Haddaway. In 2013, MeloD collaborated with “HSU-NAMI” to animate his first music video. Since joining Complete Weddings & Events located in Creve Coeur St. Louis, he climbed the ranks to become a No.2 Top Rated DJ during 2018!! Maintaining his status as a Top Ten Wedding DJ, MeloD mixes current hits with the best techno/electronica tracks of the 90s and early 2000s. Never shying away from combining seriously skilled steps with a few meme-based moves, this DJ knows how to have fun on the dance floor as well as behind the turntables. “It’s easy to get people dancing by playing songs people know. You really win audiences over when you surprise them with those forgotten hits they’ve always loved! Making unforgettable memories is the best part of being a DJ.”
It’s not a Saturday night dance unless the beats are as hot as a classic hot spring in Japan. Our EDM style dance promises to have high BPM, bright lights, and more beat drops than a spill in a produce aisle. Celebrate the end of the biggest day of the convention by enjoying the best mixes, and of course, stay hydrated. Onsen’s are all about water!
