Meeting music legends Niles Rodgers and Billy Mann

I have a mean fist pump lol ... Highlights from last night's dj gig It's really crazy when you can have all your passions align and in this case I had the very amazing opportunity to DJ an event at my advertising job that featured two legends in the music industry: Niles Rodgers and Billy Mann. They are both writers and musicians who have written for everybody (Niles is of Chic fame - wrote Diana Ross's I'm coming out, Duran Duran, INXS, and Madonna's Like a Virgin album; Billy Mann: Pink, Kelly Rowland, John Legend, Celine Dion) or have been sampled by everybody. They spoke about being creatives and the "currency" of creativity in the business world. It was very inspiring and fun to hear all their anecdotes and backgrounds. It was even better that I got to DJ the event and play and mix their work. A few pics I could snag that day:
