For the second year in a row, Jason Jani and the SCE Event Group helped produce the largest Private Event DJ Conference in the world - Mobile Beat Las Vegas - #MBLV20. The conference was held in at the Tropicana resort in Las Vegas - March 13th - 17th, 2016.
Jason Jani served as the Entertainment Director as well as the on stage performance DJ for the entire event. This show was a milestone for Mobile Beat Las Vegas (MBLV) as they were celebrating its 20th year of hosting the Las Vegas based get-together and the 25th year of the actual magazine. In addition to Jason Jani, SCE also used Jeff Scott Gould and Joe Pags for Event Capture, and Tony Tee Neto for voice over production.
The production value was top notch with professionally-programmed intelligent lighting designed by Jeremy Brecht and the Chauvet DJ team, large projection screens to simulcast presenters, sound provided by Electro Voice and outstanding content from a list of speakers that brought an immense amount of information to the audience of DJs from around the world. Attendance was exceptional with nearly 1500+ DJs, private event company owners, and employees soaking in knowledge over the 4-day event.
Jason & the SCE team worked tirelessly in the weeks and months leading up to the conference on securing high-profile keynote speakers, celebrity acts, music programming between presenters, and even an introduction video looking back through the years of highlights from the past conferences. Attendees were treated to visuals showcasing Vegas’ history leading up to and including a montage of MBLV’s 20-year history, all presented with a Rat Pack kind of vibe.
Jason opened the conference musically with his signature-style Open Format program, engaging everyone from the beginning. Set up at center stage, the performance DJ role was truly was a focus over all four days for the attendees.
SCE also created the opening video segment that was synchronized with live interactive hosting and performance segments, including SCE’s Tony Tee Neto. Clips of Frank & Elvis performances were augmented by real-life impersonators around the room and a awesome lighting ambience that blended seemless into the video visual content.
It wasn’t long before there was a “battle of skills” on the turntables (or lack thereof!) with Entertainment Experience cofounder Bill Hermann. Engaging, funny, and self-deprecating, it was a great way to start things off.
One of Jason’s (and the conference’s) highlights came on Day 2, when he was able to have an honest and enlightening on-stage interview with LMFAO’s Redfoo (did you know he’s Berry Gordy’s son?!). ‘Foo discussed everything from how he got started producing music, to his ‘process,’ to branding and being the “Ultimate Party Rocker!” The actual interview from this segment will be posted soon on our site and mixcloud page.
Another major highlight was the VIP performance event that featured Redfoo and his Party Rock Crew, VIC (known for his song "The Wobble") and SCE's Jason Jani. Jason opened the event, played in between artist performances and hosted the event. We have included a segment of his opening open format set below for you to hear.
Presentations at #MBLV20 spanned a wide range of topics from marketing to bookkeeping practices, branding to mixing techniques, and everything in between. Every speaker offered something to make each professional better— perspective, technique, style.
Another highlight was Bar Rescue’s John Taffer speaking for an hour from his perspective. Having owned several bars and other businesses, he brought an informed, passionate, and direct conversation that hit to the heart of what we do!
In addition, Jeff Scott Gould and Joe Pags were n site to capture the action with the SCE Media crew. The conference ended with an SCE total event recap which incorporated all of the call out items of the 4 day conference and wrapped it into a 3 minute video. The video wowed the attendees as the perfect way to end an awesome experience.
