Hotel Del Coronado Weddings and Events – ModelN

Client:ModelN – Wendy Mayerson
Venue:Hotel del Coronado
Venue Address:1500 Orange Ave
Coronado, CA 92118
Hotel Contact:Estella

In mid-February this year, I was contacted by a company and asked to DJ a national convention for ModelN. This was a nice break from the usual weddings in San Diego I’m accustomed to doing, and I was able to really have some fun with the music.

Hotel Del Coronado

Hotel Del Coronado is a very nice hotel in Coronado. It has a classic mixed with modern feel, which is apparent even when outside viewing the front of the building.

For ModelN’s corporate welcome party, I set up on the Windsor Lawn, facing the hotel.

I have not been able to contact the photographer and I took very few photos of the events, so this blog post will be rather scarce on photos, sorry!

I did manage to get a photo of my setup before guests arrived. Weather predictions were giving a decent chance of light showers, so we used umbrella to shade my equipment. Even for a corporate party my setup is clean and professional looking, with pole sleeves and skirts for that added classiness.

And here’s where the guests mingled.

Right before guests arrived, I put the camera away so I could concentrate on mixing.

Music Selection

Music was varied. I was hired to just play entertaining music while guests mingled. There was no dance floor, therefore the music choices I had to select from were vast. To someone who prides themselves on their knowledge of music, this presents a fun opportunity to express oneself while keeping everyone energized and alert.

Some of the genres I played this night were:

Jazz
Disco
Funk
Motown
ElectroPop
New Wave
Pop
Baltimore House (BMore)
Top40
Country
Classic Rock
Freestyle

Most notable event of the night was when I dropped a 80s freestyle track, and one of the guests came over and said that he recognized me from when I DJ’d at Club A’s in Tijuana. Wow, how could he recognize me from way back when, right? Well, that was my cue to go into a “Club A’s throwback” set so I started throwing down more freestyle, and stuff from back in the day like Stephen Tin Tin Duffy and New Order. Guests were giving me thumbs-up and even coming over for a high-five and/or fist-pound.

Post-Reception

Wendy came over to tell me that she enjoyed what I was doing, but then also that she was going inside. I didn’t get to take a photo with her, but I can definitely say she was a satisfied client.

Thanks ModelN for choosing The Creative Music DJ to provide the entertainment for your welcoming party!

This has to be one of the most eventful weddings I have done in a long time. If you have ever wondered just how well an experienced professional DJ can avert disaster at a wedding (even more so than the incident at Admiral Kidds Club when the cloud cover rolled in), well, here's your chance to find out! Although these experiences are frustrating as they are occuring, they make for great stories later, and really help to hone the problem-solving skills every professional wedding DJ should have.
