About the pelonkteam

We are an eclectic group of creatives with experience in events, entertainment, and all things 'fireworks' --  we live and breathe FUN!  Our founder is a successful DJ in Washington DC who has performed internationally as her alter-ego, DJ Neekola, in conjunction with a variety of performers and production elements.  She created Pelonkey to provide the latest and greatest in entertainment for big events, as well as to provide an ethical, trusted resource for both entertainers and event planners alike.

Neekola's team was built on the same foundations of passion, transparency and ethics. Haleluya, Pelonkey's DreamMaker and Glitter Trader, is your first step to making your entertainment dreams come alive! Haleluya's previous background in events, ability to capture your visions, and offer the best estimates for your budget, is how she earned her PelonkTitle 'DreamMaker/Glitter Trader'. Operations Ring Master, Michael, also lives up to his title by whipping our contracted events into shape -- applying his extensive experience in production and performance through his work with Disney and Universal Studios -- transforming your dream from ink to reality!

Haleluya was so great to work with on the pre-planning logistics. She was so attentive and responsive. Super friendly and accommodating. On-site, Haleluya and Michael were a joy to work with. The customer service was the best. Thank you!

Pelonkey was wonderful to work with for our event. They were prompt with responses to questions and with solutions for our event. The process was easy and we will absolutely book through Pelonkey again. Thank you for a great experience.

The stilt walkers in their custom outfits were a HIT! Thank you to Neekola for her patience and her enthusiasm as we made our vision come to life.

Thanks so much for being a part of the event!
