“Music makes the people come together.”
Andrew and Kayla are a music-obsessed couple living in Santa Barbara, California. Andrew, the official minster of sound, has been DJ’ing for 15 years and produces house music by day. From a family steeped in jazz and gospel, music is part of his DNA. Andrew’s perfect day includes dusty record shops, a New York Times Sunday crossword and a cappuccino. Kayla is the super force behind Party Proper. You can find her at all of Andrew’s shows cheering him on. When she’s not on social media, she’s at the beach with their dog, Lucci, or on the yoga mat. Andrew and Kayla throw parties in Santa Barbara four times a year. These events emphasize the things they care about most: community, joy, and crafted musical experiences. At these parties, they partner with local businesses to marry culinary and artistic experiences with music. Their main goal is to use music as the vehicle to create togetherness.
