The Juliano 25th Anniversary party was one of the most unique parties that Disc Jockey Services has ever done. Their son, Mike, who I knew quite well as he is my banker and has access to all my bank accounts, he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse to do his parents party.
Now one thing that Disc Jockey Services tries to do, is make every party unique from every other party that we do and since Mike and I are fans of Christopher Walken and Mike does a terrific Christopher Walken impression. I came up with this crazy idea to do a phone-in from famous celebrities to wish the couple a happy anniversary. Mike had a friend Danny Markham who did a number of imitations of famous personalities, too. I wrote a loose script for the skit and Mike and Danny ran with it. I put them in a room off from the main hall and gave them a wireless microphone and they went with flow. We pretended that all these Hollywood celebrities were calling in from Hollywood and a few stars from the great beyond. Mike took Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert DeNiro, the great sports announcer for the Chicago Cubs Harry Carey, and Christopher Walken, while Danny took James Stewart, Mike Tyson, ex-president Clinton and Ernst T. Bass from the Andy Griffith Show. It was Improv at it’s best. Danny had done stand-up here in Richmond and Mike has that infectious personality that allows him to be funny with his impressions.
The Juliano’s can lay claim to having the most unusual anniversary party thanks to the talents of their son and friend Danny. After all, how many of you have had so many faux personalities call you and wish a happy anniversary?
