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:

New Wave
Baltimore House (BMore)
Classic Rock

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.


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!
