Chemeketa student to perform at dance event

By Jonathan Castro Monroy
With the academic year ending, Chemeketa students are ready to celebrate and start the summer on a good note.
On Friday, June 15, Chemeketa student Eric Sanchez, who goes by the stage name DJ Reckless, will be one of the DJs at the Summer Kickoff dance event held at the Moonlight Events Center at 4764 Portland Road NE, Salem.
The under 21 event is hosted by the Moonlight Events and Vex Nation production companies. The event starts at 9 p.m. and ends at 1:30 a.m.
In addition to DJ Reckless, other DJs are DRT (Dorian Treviso), who will be a Chemeketa Student this fall, and Trey K (Trey Kenyon), a student at Oregon State who also is one of the lead singers of the Little Rascalz.
This group was the winner of the Official Power Anthem contest for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials, which will take place at Historic Hayward Field June 21 to July 1.
Juan Carlos Navarro, a Chemeketa first-year student, said, “I am looking forward to this event; it will definitely be the highlight event of the year in regards to entertainment for teens.
“I know that a good show will be put on because both of the moonlight DJs will be spinning the tunes along with DJ Trey K, who has put on good shows for the past years. It is also cool to have one of the lead singers of the Little Rascalz disc jockeying the event.”
“I am excited to show DJ Trey K, who is a DJ for Elixr Producitons, what we Moonlight Event DJs do. I am looking forward to sharing the stage with him. Attendees can expect a really big sound, amazing lights, and a lot of people having fun in a safe environment.”
Anerin Defang, a Chemeketa first-year student, said, “I am attending this event because I think it is a great way to end the school year. It is a good way to celebrate all the hard working in an exciting and safe atmosphere.”
