DJ Contest

On Saturday The Pitch held their Ultra Music DJ Contest for 2 tickets to attend this year's Winter Music Conference in Miami. In past years, The Pitch has sent the big winner to Miami, paying airfare and hotel and hooking them up with a gig. But with this year's economy they could only provide the two admission tickets. They could have cancelled the whole thing, but they felt the event was good for the DJs and the Kansas City music scene.

My husband Shaun entered and WON!

This was his 1st DJ competition. He was happy to be 1 of 5 DJs to compete out of 20 submissions. He was even more elated that he won.


Two of the judges were last year's winners, Nomathmatics. Better known to us Hallmarkers as John and Sheppa.


I had super fun as you can see from me dancing with some other Hallmarkers cuttin' a rug too! I think it's funny that The Pitch photo caption said, "Mrs. Shaun Duval well deserves her place on the pedestal." I'm not quite used to the "Mrs." title yet, but I'm so proud.

HA... us Halmarkers know how to get down though! Check The Pitch slideshow for more photos.
