DJ Pete Rock In Da House

iD Tech in action

Don't get me wrong, I love running summer camps, but my wife gave me the night off last night and I hit Blowfish Sushi with DJ Roque (one of our awesome new client services representatives at iD Tech Camps).

Roque let me take over the tables and taught me a lot about music and the industry.  Heck, we run a summer camp, so I hope I know how to have some fun.  I must say, the crowd was hopping and the transitions were pretty smooth. Roque was nervous at first-especially after about 30 people left the place (it was like a small exodus) but my natural Maltese-Irish-American rhythm was on display and it's something you either have, or you don't.  I quickly hit my groove, and even Roque decided to get up and dance.  "Play that funky music, Pete Boy" the crowd chanted.  I turned it up and the rest was history.  Or infamy.

Roque sent out a few pics to the company this AM and here are a few comments.  Thanks for your support, folks.  Based on all the enthusiasm and fan support, you just might find me bringing down the house in a location near you!  It feels good to be the first CEO / DJ ever at Blowfish Sushi.  We did make history.

"We need this on the blog, this is awesome!! Great pic!"

"Get down Pete! You look like a natural!"

"DJ PETE ROCK specializes in providing professional services for a variety of special events from Wedding Receptions, School Dances, Corporate Events & Private Parties!"

"So I guess this means you'll be officiating, cooking and dj-ing at our wedding. Sweet! What other hidden talents do you have that I can utilize?"

"And Barack thought he was cool! Ha!"

"Did you just get out of jail?"

"Who dresses you?"

"You are totally faking it."

"When you started, there were 100 people on the dance floor.  Three minutes into it, I thought they had closed the club.  But the cleaning crew appreciated getting out of there early."
