DJs are getting their dues in Las Vegas and packing them in just as much (if not more) than celebrity hosts and guest performers. Weekly contributor Jack Colton held the first annual Las Vegas DJ Awards at The Bank nightclub Sunday evening to show some love for the locals that keep us dancing.
With more than 3,000 online votes cast during the course of five days on Colton's site, the contest culminated in a room packed with nightlife industry folks and partygoers. Nominee Pearce Cleveland emceed the event, and winners received a plaque in the form of a platinum record engraved with their name and category.
