Hello. My name is Eric Zimmermann. As a DJ/Master of Ceremonies, Pianist and Bandleader I enjoy performing for Parties and Weddings in some of the most beautiful locations throughout Southern California.
Happy Birthday! New Beginning!
In the Chinese tradition a 60th Birthday is a new beginning! This and Kim’s inspiring optimism was the theme for her celebration.
This was a full evening of entertainment.

I conducted the evening’s festivities as her DJ/MC.
The Elegant Music Quartet performed during dinner.
After dinner there were meaningful toasts.
Then, a Lion Dance erupted complete with two lions and a noisy traditional Chinese band of drums and cymbals!
The lion is a symbol of power and wisdom in Chinese culture. For thousands of years lion dances have scared away evil spirits and brought good fortune.
Guests took turns showing off on the dance floor shaking off the “old” to make way for the “new” and everyone had a great time.
