Private Party & Events DJ
My love of music started as a child, growing up in Long Beach, California. I can remember at the age of 6, learning to operate our family record player just to spin The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.”
Kind of a hippy kid, I grew up on rock and roll, listening to my parents LPs of The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Moody Blues and The Rolling Stones. I can recall after hearing Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown” for the very first time on the radio in 1969, rushing out to buy their first album, and I’ve remained a huge fan ever since.
In the late 70s I became a Country Folk Dancer at the Renaissance Faire, which continued throughout the 80s and 90s traveling around the West Coast and later Europe. I discovered electronic dance music (“trance music” as it was then called) during my time in the UK.
Eventually making my way back to California, where an emerging rave scene brought along dozens of new festivals to explore that catered to the world of electronic dance music (EDM).
Through the years, these experiences have influenced me as an entertainer, showing me the value of a great DJ and the impact that music can bring to an event.
