NAIT School of Business 2009 Christmas Party and Dance
November 20, 2009
Edmonton DJ at the Edmonton Petroleum Club
I have been an Edmonton DJ for the last 10 years and the NAIT JR Shaw School of Business Christmas Party came about via someone in my past hunting me down. John Beck is a great dancer and we knew each other from the days I used to DJ at the Fantasyland Lounge in West Edmonton Mall about 6 – 7 years ago. They wanted to change things up a little for this years event and John remembered my company name and looked me up on Google and as they say it… the rest is history.
The Edmonton Petroleum Club is a really good place to DJ if you are lucky to be in the big ballroom with the access door right off the stage making for one of the easier load ins in town.
We had a great group of people that all were enjoying themselves and we then went into dinner about 7:00 PM and I jumped in with a game to decide the order that the tables would go to the buffet line. It is a short a sweet game that requires the people at each table work together to answer questions about Christmas Carols and the table with the highest score gets to go 1st and so on.
We enjoyed a great meal with more choices of items than I have seen in a long time. If you were not happy with all the choices then you were even harder to please than me and I thought it was a great meal, one of the best of the year. Add in a great selection of deserts made for an enjoyable meal.
Dinner was followed by a couple of short speeches and a few door prizes.
The highlight of the evening was when John Beck sang a slightly modified version of “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer” that had everyone in stitches as he played it up with a great introduction and I had the karaoke version of the song that he sang along with.
We then went into the dance that had a great start but we ended a little earlier than I had hope but it sure was a good time while it lasted.
