Dj Neekola Latest News & Events
Last month, DJ Neekola was a judge for the Taste of Prince George Best In Glass Mixology Competition! She sat alongside four other judges at Proud Mary Restaurant, DJ Nonchalant, DJ Bobby Rox, DJ DNitty, and DJ Xplosive.
Since the theme was for DJs to judge the drinks, the host for the evening was none other than Biz Markie! Run by FlyCandy Media, Proud Mary looked awesome!
The bartenders really got into their drink mixology!
All four cocktails were incredible, and Neekola enjoyed sipping on the exquisite recipes.
At the end of the evening, the winner was announced and all attendees received swag bags, leaving Proud Mary restaurant quite content!
It was a wonderfully fun evening, and DJ Neekola was very happy to make some new DJ friends, judge the delicious cocktails, and participate in the Taste of Prince George event! Thank you for having her!
At one of the most exciting events of the year, DJ Neekola was booked to perform at this year’s RAMMY awards!
Held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, this year’s event was bigger and better than ever!
Hosted by RJ Whyte’s fabulous event planners, the convention center looked immaculate.
Neekola’s booth stood above the main bar area, where various whiskeys, spirits, craft beers, and cocktails were being served to the guests.
The night started with a live band, keeping the crowd in a fun, upbeat mood to eat, drink, and socialize!
During their awesome performance, DJ Neekola took the opportunity to go network with some of the biggest socialites in the city.
She even ran into a Pelonkey Board member, Victoria Michael with VM Public Relations!
Catch a spotlight post on her in the Pelonkey blog soon!
We also ran into a great friend of ours, Daniel Mahdavian, partnered with a couple new restaurant ideas launching soon – stay tuned!
Those are bound to be incredible new eating spots in the city!
With a different theme at each station, all of the chefs from various restaurants and eateries in the area represented a different country.
The hand-written chalk decor for these food stations was nothing short of stunning!
Once we had our fun running around, munching on some delicious eats and chatting with some of the best people you will ever meet, it was Neekola’s turn to take over the dance floor!
Starting off the dance and party portion of the evening was a live flash mob!
As always, DJ Neekola used her superior skills to read the crowd and rouse everyone to the dance floor!
This was a fun task after the incredible flash mob dancers busted their moves, but she managed just fine to get everyone into the dancing mood!
Keeping the crowd packed the whole night, she had to end the night with Andrea Bocelli remixed with Imogen Heap to clear the floor for cleanup, and people still found a way to dance to it!
Her rhythms are just too good.
A big thanks to all of our great photographers, such as Ben Droz, Brightest Young Things, and Washington Life Magazine the for some of these wonderful photos!
Thank you to RJ Whyte for booking Neekola for this amazing event!
The RAMMYS always promise good memories and great times with awesome people, and we very much appreciated being a part of it all!

Last week, Neekola performed an impressive, customized set for a private event in Silver Spring! Hosted by RJ Whyte Events, of course it was a stellar party!
This high end event featured a beautiful venue with a conservative attitude. By no means does that mean this client wasn’t ready to party! Neekola killed it with her amazing music and ability to read the crowd, keeping them dancing for hours past when they’d originally planned their party to end!
Thank you for such an immaculate event, RJ Whyte! We can’t wait to work with you guys again!

It was another killer night at Heist for their Industry Tuesdays! This week’s lineup was solid, featuring Vicious, Amen Ra, Oz, and Neekola, all super dope Pelonkey DJs!
The party was so awesome, Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas showed up to mix in some of his hot 90′s beats!
As always, Heist delivered a solid party. The energy was great, and the lounge was solid packed til they shut it down. Thanks for having Neekola! Always a pleasure, and we can’t wait til next month!

The Front Row Fashion Show at Bethesda Row is an annual event that captures all the fabulous fashion for the upcoming season in one place.
DJ Neekola once again was asked to perform for the runway event!
This year’s VIP guest was the entertainment journalist, actress, and author, Maria Menounos!
She had a book signing an hour or so before the fashion show, and then of course sat front row at the runway!
Featuring beautiful fashion items from all of the Bethesda Row retailers, this sixth annual Front Row runway show was better than ever!
Neekola loved spinning for the hot styles strutting their stuff!
Fox 5 anchor, Laura Evans, hosted the show on Bethesda Lane, obviously loving the fashion!
NBC News anchor Eun Yang also attended the event!
Also spotted on the runway was the beautiful Kate Michael, from K Street Magazine, sporting dark, mysterious, sultry looks for the evening.
See these great photos by Lauren Patton from Bethesda Magazine! Also featured are photos from Vithaya Photography and Revamp!
With pop-up fashion lounges, fashion sketch artists, and a photo booth, this was the most fun the Front Row has ever been, which is saying something! Sales and trunk shows were also featured throughout the day.
It was awesome to see the sneak peek of 2014 New York Fashion Week fall collection! I think everyone can get excited about what’s to come for next season’s trends!
