I grew up in Chicago listening to the sounds of Run DMC, AC/DC and of course, old-school house music. When I was about 12 years old, my Mom bought me my first DJ set-up; nothing fancy but enough to allow me to practice. I DJ’d my first gig in 8th grade (our graduation party!) and began a serious venture into the DJ business ever since.
When I was 21, I DJ’d a surprise birthday party for a client at a local sports bar. After the party was over, the bar owner came up to me and said “Hey, if you’re not busy next Saturday, come by.” I was thrilled that I was going to have a steady DJ job on the weekends.
That lasted for about 8 years when I was finally noticed by the Entertainment Director at one of the most popular entertainment companies in Chicago, Ala Carte Entertainment. Have you heard of Alumni Club? Famous Freddie’s? Vision? Excalibur? Deja Vu? Legroom? I was headlining at one of the more popular nightclubs in Chicago every weekend and enjoyed every moment entertaining hundreds of people. In 2008, I left the club life to focus on my entertainment business.
Moving forward, I wanted to bring the same high-energy experience I learned working as a night club DJ to weddings, corporate and social events. I’m not your typical cheesy DJ who will play games, have guests wear funny hats and do sing-a-longs. I bring excitement to the dance floor by playing only the hits accompanied by an awesome light show.
