Prequel aka “Pretty Cool”…see what I did there?

Last week Prequel DC had their launch party c/o RJ Whyte Event Production, and let me be (definitely not the first and absolutely not the last) one to say Holy Guacamole, Batman! That place looked awesome-sauce.

Three floors, each with a different theme and decor, scattered with 11, yes 11, talented entertainers from our site.

I’ll let the photos do the talking (a picture says a thousand words, after all), but before we even get to the magnificent visuals, let’s chat about the man who took them: Alexander Morozov. He also took our launch party photos, and he always captures the magic of the event! He manages to get the best expressions, candid conversations, and elegant setups.

Check out Alexander’s full album here.

A big thanks to all the entertainers who helped make the Prequel Launch shine!

What it’s like to work with DJ Sean J

15980288835_af7b03d145_o

You’re planning a party. A blowout. A major shindig for all your peeps at the hottest club you rented out in DC. You need someone to start the party and keep it going. You say to yourself, Self, who do I know that is talented and awesome besides me? And it hits you. DJ Sean J. Obviously. He’s performed all over the DMV. Rams Head Live, Hippodrome Theater, Liv Nightclub, the list goes on. You must book him. But how? So you email, and he asks you to sign up with Pelonkey. Simple, secure. You make your account. Oh, I am so coming back here to browse more performers for my next gig. And next thing you know, Sean J is sending you a contract through the site, you’re signing it, and your event is booked. Two months later, the party goes off without a hitch, and Sean J has you and your guests rockin’ all night long.

Sean J is an open-format rockstar and officially our first Entertainer to push his outside work & contacts to Pelonkey and book a gig! For that he deserves all of the high fives. And our weekly entertainer feature spot. And probably some cupcakes, which you should send to him ASAP.

So after the contract went through we hit him up. Asked him how the booking process was. (Easy-peasy, he said). Will he suggest the site to his other friends & contacts? (Already did, he said.) Is he pumped to book more gigs through Pelonkey in the future? Let us quote: “I see soooooooooooo much potential here, and I’ve decided I’m going all in on this…you’re awesome for building this.” No, you’re awesome, Sean J.

We love us some DJ Sean J, and we’re jazzed to have him on our side. He’s got the musical stylings of a high-energy, cross-genre genius, always keeping his audience dancing. And ohhh, you’ll be dancing. Your legs may not be thanking us the next morning, but your ears will.

Pelonkey’s DJ Wizdom spins at L2 Lounge

DJ Wizdom really knows how to drop a hot house beat, and there’s no better place for it than Georgetown’s sexy L2 Lounge.

Saturday night was poppin’ for L2, sporting all of DC’s hottest socialites and “in” crowd. Wizdom had no problem playing some deep and vocal house, transitioning into the party vibe as the night progressed.

Champagne models are a huge hit for Pelonkey clients this holiday season!

This holiday season, champagne was easily the most popular celebratory beverage of choice. What makes it even better? How about having a beautiful model serve you a cold, crisp glass from her tiered skirt, fully loaded with sparkly champagne flutes?

Yes, it is the coolest thing ever, we know! A huge corporate client of Pelonkey‘s had a champagne model at each of their holiday parties and loved them.

The champagne model & skirt are a fabulous add to any celebratory occasion, giving the event that extra pop of fun!

Our DJs really know how to make Heist pop!

Last month, a few of our incredible DC DJs stole the scene at Heist in DuPont!

As one of Pelonkey‘s partner venues in DC, Heist is one of the most unique nightclubs in the city. It has a fun bank robbery scene (hence the name!) and all gold embellished decor. Including Dirty Hands and Neekola, the music was bumping! One of our other partners, the Beat Refinery, had their main lady DJ Alkimist pop in to party as well! Selfie time!

All around another amazing night at Heist for their Industry Tuesdays. Catch you there next time!

Industry Tuesdays at Heist!

Tuesday night was crazy at Heist! We had a great line up with four of our sweet Pelonkey DJs who spin it to win it: DJ Neekola, DJ Oz, Phlipz, and Carlos DeLarosa!

The entire lounge was packed, and everyone wanted to dance to the amazing beats of the DJs!

DJ Charity and DJ Neekola steal the scene at the new iPic Theaters in North Bethesda!

DJ Charity rocks out iPic Theaters!

Last week, Pelonkey CEO DJ Neekola and Pelonkey artist DJ Charity totally rocked out the new iPic Theaters in North Bethesda with TAA PR! Each night featured a stellar DJ performance, and proceeds from ticket sales went to select local charities, making the opening parties both fun and fulfilling.

DJ Charity really knows how to make people bounce! She was spinning and remixing all of Monday night, much to the delight of the theater-goers! Pelonkey is proud to have such a beautiful, talented lady DJ on board, keepin’ it cool every time!

We spy a Pelonkey ninja at the 5th Anniversary MES Masquerade mixer!

Being keen as ever, Pelonkey CEO DJ Neekola hopped around the Metro Events Specialists 5th Anniversary Masquerade party without anyone knowing who she was until her reveal!

The MES event did not disappoint! Taking place at the beautiful Carnegie Library at Mt Vernon Square, the venue was completely decked out for the occasion.

Neekola had an incredible time munching on tasty little treats and morsels, dancing to the band, enjoying a libation or two from the open bar, getting her picture snapped left and right from the Umbrella Syndicate, socializing with friends, and networking Pelonkey with the best professionals the DMV events industry has to offer.
