So, Steve Aoki's father started the entire Benihana restaurant chain. The more you know...
You may or may not remember when Rocky Aoki, Steve's father, took a few fictitious jabs from Jordan Belfort about his involvement with Belfort's arrest in hit book/film, "The Wolf of Wall Street."

After all, this is one of EDM's highest-paid DJs, best known to sell a show where cake is thrown into the faces of eager party-goers. Aoki was all-for the cameo.
"They shouted-out my dad and I thought that was really cool."
