A DJ to Fall in Love to

At Nick’s Memorial A-WAKE in Los Angeles his friends danced to his music for a day. Similar events and dance parties bring old friends back together to honor fallen friends
Nick played for tens of thousands and passed at the peak of his career, doing what he loved
Thousands of guests came to the memorial and left notes for Nick and Chance’s families
Art, music, dance and friends — dance floor community has a unique bond

In tribute for Nick and his lost driver Chance, from his lyrics to our hearts:
