DJ Dave Swirsky at United Nations Event
Last night I was asked to DJ the Farewell Dinner for the out going United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. It was a memorable event with live performances and many moving speeches. Here is a photo of Sec’y General Ban Ki-Moon
I played music to reflect the crowd and there was mostly World music (Salsa, Merengue, Crooners, Disco, Soca, Pop and more) The Guests from Honduras were especially pleased when i played music from Guillermo Anderson and Banda Blanca (Punta Music). Here i am with the Ambassador to Honduras (in black) and the event Chair Woman and Emcee Tatiana.
Here is a photo of me at my DJ Booth before guests arrived in the Room. Guests represented nations from all of the world and I played music to reflect that. I played songs from Silvio Rodriguez to Xoel Lopez to Stevie Wonder, Louie Armstrong to Shakira and much, much more!
Thank you to my friend Gene Press of GPP for another successful United Nations Event!
