Last Saturday was completely nuts (in an awesome way!) as Pelonkey‘s DJ Neekola and DJ Hi Def spun out some crazy beats at one of DC’s most popular night clubs, Heist, one of Pelonkey’s partner venues!

The dance floor was full the entire night, with people still partying when the lights turned on. Nobody was ready to go home! Make sure you check out Heist the next time this Pelonkey duo hits the decks – the party doesn’t stop!

Digital DC teams up with Pelonkey for the Summer Kickoff Reception at Capitale!

Last month, Pelonkey provided two of our awesome DC DJs, DJ Costi and DJ Hi Def, to mix and mash up some super dope beats for Digital DC‘s Summer Kickoff Reception!

Hosted by Carlos Gray, Mayor Vincent Gray‘s son, the event brought together awesome people from the DC government, including 1776 mentor Erin Horne McKinney!

Starting off the night was Pelonkey’s DJ Costi, feeling out the crowd with some upbeat lounge and house music. Halfway through, DJ Hi Def kicked into club mode, mixing in some hip hop and a little modern house. What a great vibe from the two of them!

Capitale proved to be an excellent space for the networking party, which consisted of NFL Pro Sports, startups (mostly from WeWork, another event sponsor), and real estate members.

St. Louis Rams Safety, Rodney McLeod, was in attendance with a few of his football buddies, attracting quite a crowd!

With Lulu’s ice cream also in attendance sharing the delicious love, it was quite a successful event all around!
