DJ KO: Mixing Up The Twelve Cocktails of Christmas

DJ KO: Mixing Up The Twelve Cocktails of Christmas

What’s your favorite Christmas memory?

My favorite Christmas memory would have to be when I received a slime gun (Similiar to a Nerf gun but shoots slime) from my parents. I instantly loaded it up and started blasting my bully older brothers in the house!! I was king for a moment and then the gun was taken and throw in the trash by my mom. It was a blast while it lasted!

What’s your idea of a good Christmas Dinner?

This would have to be the prime rib my in laws make!! Can’t beat a prime rib Christmas dinner!!

Do you have a favorite Christmas album?

I don’t really have a favorite Christmas album, but if I was going to compile one, I would include the basic classics of course. My favorites are the modern classics like: Chris Brown “This Christmas,”Cee Lo “What Christmas Means to Me,” & definitely the booty shake version of Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas.” Other favorites are Taylor Ray Hollbrook’s “Merry Merry Me” & Rizzi Myers “I love Christmas!”

Do you have any favorite traditions or favorite movies for the holiday season?

I really love everything about Christmas!! I came from a big family, so instead of buying everyone a gift, we would do a white elephant exchange where most of the gifts are gag gifts and they do not exceed the price of $25 dollars. We pick numbers for order and you can steal a gift up to 3 times and #1 has the last say. This never fails for epic family time in GA!

Whats been your favorite album of 2016?

This one is tough! I feel like music has moved into a single’s world and I rarely listen to a full album. I don’t think I have a favorite, but there are some notable albums. Charlie Farley – “All I’ve Been Through” | Bruno Mars – “24k” | Ariana Grande – “Dangerous Woman” | DJ KO – “High Gravity” | The rest of my favorites were all singles.

What are your hopes for 2017? Any exciting plans?

In 2017 I am excited to be joining the Arenacross tour again on a 14 state tour! I will also be closing out the “High Gravity” tour. My team and I have been working non-stop in the studio and we can’t crown wait to debut this new fire!

The holiday season brings the best parties and time together with friends and family. What is your signature Christmas Cocktail recipe that you will be serving?
