DJ Dani Toro deviated for a brief moment during his four hour-plus set of circuit party beats at the Octane Party from SKIN Productions that started late Saturday night, Oct. 14, and didn't finish at Fantasy Night Club in Boystown until the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct. 15.

Toro delivered some wedding sounds because, well, two gay Chicagoans, Jason Hartleben and Giuseppe Nuno, were married on Saturday. They proudly showed their matching rings and Toro stopped his DJ role, but not the sounds, to pose for photos with the two.

The monthly Octane dance party was, as expected, a full-energy, laser- and fog-filled extravaganza that brought together about 400 from across the rainbow – and certainly plenty of muscle-packed, shirtless gay men who seemed to fill every inch of the dance floor for hours.

The Octane Party was, once again, a benefit to support the Lakeview Pantry.

The next Octane Party is Saturday, Nov. 11 at Fantasy Nightclub, featuring Chicago's own DJ Jesse Mercado.
