Fitbit Captivate is a wellness conference attended by human resource, benefits and corporate wellness professionals who manage and/or incorporate Fitbit devices into their companies wellness programs. I was fortunate to DJ this conference in San Francisco and equally grateful to make the trip to Chicago to spin my Fitbit vinyl for this years conference at Revel Motor Row.

The full day of DJing included three extended sets with a couple of short sets during conference breaks. The purpose was to provide a funky atmosphere and beats that would keep the attendees engaged throughout the day.

Cubic Transportation Holiday Party - Hilton Torrey Pines Special Event

DJ Justin Kanoya with members of Pop Vinyl, Brian Hogan and Aaron Erlichmann

DJ Justin Kanoya with members of Pop Vinyl, Brian Hogan and Aaron Erlichmann

This was a fun gig for me for a couple of reasons. The first being is that I got to DJ with a band, more specifically, Pop Vinyl. Mostly I was DJing their breaks, but we jammed together on a few songs. It's nice to be able to warm up a crowd and then hand that over to the band to continue the party.

The other reason I was excited for this event, was it was a reunion with a couple of guys I went to high school with (both members of the band). This would not ordinarily be too unusual. But for us, high school was ummm, more than 20 years ago and it was in St. Louis. Not too often you reconnect after so many years and so many miles.

Pacific Marine Credit Union Slow Motion Video - South Coast Winery

Who knew bankers were such party animals?

Employees from Pacific Marine Credit Union celebrated the end of the year with a party at South Coast Winery in Temecula and made this great slow motion video.

Another year and another awesome slow motion video from the employees at Pacific Marine Credit Union. This video was made even better since this event was masquerade party themed of their 2015 Holiday Party, which took place at South Coast Winery in Temecula. As a result, there are a lot of great masks, many of which were made by the guests themselves. 

I also provided DJ services for their dance party, more about that in this earlier blog post.
