DJing with Frase for my brother, Shy Guy’s event! Combining pro and amateur dancer teams for 2v2, buzzed entertainment. For battle signups go to the official FB event page.
Where there are battles that happen to have a party afterwards, this will be a party that happens to have battles in the middle. This spirited dance battle will have participants paired up at random while taking shots between each round for $200 and a bottle of “something special.”
My fellow Knuckle Neck brother Mikey Disko and I will be your hosts for the evening.
Smashed Potatoes is happening on January 25, 2020 at the Blue Chip in San Jose.
TLDR Come for a good time, dance, take shots, and win stuff!

This is a 2 on 2 battle where a pro dancer will be paired at random with a non-pro dancer. For this event, we’re defining a pro dancer as someone who has been paid to dance, is in a dance company, or regularly enters dance competitions. This means that a non-pro dancer can be anyone outside of those constraints.
There are 4 rounds. Competitors will be taking shots between rounds so you can expect the following battle format:
Prelims – Pro dancers will go out one at a time for a showcase.
Top 8 – Top 8 that are chosen will be paired with a non-pro dancer. The top 8 pairs then take a shot and proceed to a 2 v 2 battle.
Top 4 – The top 4 pairs take a shot and then proceed to a 2 v 2 battle.
Finals – The final 2 competitors take a shot and then proceed to a 2 v 2 battle.
Starting with the top 8 round, there will also be a prop that must be used at least once by each side. These will be announced the day of the battle.
