Celebrating Gospel Music In Loud Silence

Imagine yourself walking home from work, earbuds plugged into the latest Lecrae album. It’s Friday night, and you have plans to meet up with a funky, fun friend who’s always up for getting down. The path is lit up with a melody so perfectly aligned with your natural pace, and it is as if the lyrics were written for you. Only you.

Moments like those can feel like you’re on top of the world. All the pieces fit. Now imagine yourself transported to a dance floor and are handed wireless headphones upon your welcome and now you hear it! The beat fades to the beat of another drum in between two of your favorite gospel songs, as if the Deejay is reading your vibes entering the space. At the Burn Out Silent Disco, everyone was listening in silence via a wireless headset to the selection of records that were being played by 15 live Deejays on 4 channels. There were no vibrating speakers anywhere, only people losing themselves to dance, immersing their senses and discovering hands-in-the air happiness while running wild across our silent disco.

On October 26, at Tirupati Mazima Hall the party was lit. The Burn Out Silent Disco is an incredible sensory experience that puts the music choice at the center of the entire experience. We had about 400 people on one dance floor swaying to the music served. The Deejays played different styles of music that allowed guests to switch between multiple channels on their headsets and dance to whatever music they preferred – truly it was up to one to decide what one wanted to listen to. Mostly, the silent disco is very liberating. The volume of the headphones can be controlled by yourself, so no ringing in your ears afterwards. Of course, you can also turn up the volume to enjoy an old favorite. It is a unique way of experiencing live music.

When the headphones are on, the sound is crisp and clear anywhere in the venue – whether you are in front, in the back or even in line for the restroom (just because you need to take a break, doesn’t mean the music has to). The beauty of this is there’s no need to lose your voice screaming over the booming music, simply slide the silent disco headphones partially or completely off and chat freely with your friends. And while you’ve got your silent disco headphones off, take a moment to observe the crowd, you’ll get a kick out of hearing what the dance floor sounds like without music.

The Burn Out Silent Disco is the brainchild of Deejay Awar, the host of THE BURN OUT radio show which is on every Friday night. Since its inception, it has become an annual event for us and we are proud of it. This year was exceptionally awesome and we honestly cannot wait to experience Burn Out Silent Disco 2019!
