Playlist – 9 March 2013 – Cinequest Closing Party

March 10, 2013 Greg Gioia No comments exist

Last night I DJ’ed the closing party for Cinequest, a San Jose independent film festival. It was a big party, and took up the entire ground floor of the San Jose Tech Museum. The guests were a diverse bunch, but all fun, friendly people. The dance floor filled up gradually, as guests arrived and drinks were consumed.


I received a lot of positive feedback from guests, and generally felt this was one of the better crowds I’ve played to for some time. I kept 200+ people with a very wide variety of musical tastes dancing the entire night, and elicited numerous screams and cheers throughout. As I was packing up at the end a steady stream of people came up to tell me what they thought, and which of the songs that I played was the highlight of their night.


It felt great!
