Collecting vinyl records has always been a hobby of mine, and like many others during COVID I decided to pick up a new skill. So I combined my appreciation for crate digging with the art of DJing and purchased a pair of turntables that I set up in my kitchen. 

 

I have since transitioned from hobbyist to DJ so I can have an excuse to listen to music even more! 

 

I have an eclectic music taste, ranging from The Beatles to Billie Eilish, making sure to stop at Black Sabbath and Missy Elliot in between. I can go from 80s rock, to 90s hip-hop, to current EDM in a single sitting - always looking for new songs along the way. 

 

Like many, I have attended bad events in the past. And I know what effect the DJ/MC can have on a crowd. I work hard to make sure there’s life in your party - even if I have to bring it myself!

 

In my free time you can find me looking for a good deal on records, snowboarding, or hanging out with my dog, Bonzo.

My passion for music began with playing the bass as a hobby. Soon after, I started playing other instruments and in 2018, went to Indiana University to become a Music composer after being asked “what is it that I want to do with music?'' I said, “create!”

 

In 2019, I moved to New York City to follow my dream. While also working 3 jobs to make ends meet, I frequently attended live shows. I soon discovered my interest in DJing and wanted to share the music I enjoy so much.

 

I moved back to Indiana during the pandemic in early 2020. There, I worked at a local record/guitar music store. I learned about live sound through experienced professionals and was able to work with a wide variety of musical acts - since the record store was also a reputable live venue.

 

In 2021, I began helping local artists and I started performing at house parties, bars, and clubs. Eventually, I became a resident DJ at a club near Notre Dame.

 

Once I moved to Colorado in the Summer of 2022, I realized how much fun wedding DJing can be. I get the opportunity to play hip hop/trap, pop, Latin music, indie, electronic, and a lot more in a single night.

 

In my free time, I create my own original music that includes elements of everything I listen to. I also love hanging out with friends and family, traveling to new and familiar places alike, attending live shows and watching YouTube!

In college, I became obsessed with the turntables. I formed my first band with my guitar-playing brother, Zach, where I scratched, rapped and produced albums while touring in a 6-piece band. 

I still produce and perform my own music under the name, OHNOKHAN.

I created Dancin' Shoes in 2011 with the goal of bringing a higher quality DJ experience to Colorado. I've been an artsy person all my life, so lighting was a natural progression for me in creating

a heightened atmosphere.

I am an audio engineer and music producer by day.

For over 15 years, I have recorded and mixed everything from jazz and rock to

hip-hop and pop.

I’ve engineered at Red Rocks and Abbey Road Studios in London.

In my free time, I enjoy tackling DIY projects, seeing live music and comedy shows,

drinking Old Fashioneds, and hiking with my dog, Misha.

My background in music started at an early age with piano lessons and singing in choirs. I pursued a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and earned my Master's in 2019. I taught music in schools for nearly a decade before becoming a full-time DJ.

In recent years, I discovered my love for bass music and a desire to understand this new world of electronic music.

 

As a DJ, I love being able to craft sets with a wide variety of genres while incorporating my unique perspective as a classically trained musician and vocalist. I prefer hip-hop, pop, dance classics and 80s-90s music most. I also love EDM. I look to blend these genres into my sets, paired with my client's requests, of course :-)

Years of running my own concerts (audio engineering, public speaking, people-herding, etc.) has helped me acquire the dynamic skills to rock weddings and private events. No matter the party, I can entertain 8-to-88 year-olds!

In my spare time, I love seeing live music and DJs, eating sushi and cuddling my cats,

Donny and Cleo.

... (my mom said), “today I’m going to teach you the 4 things all women are looking for in a man... how to dress, how to dance, how to cook and how to listen.“ She then took me by my little hands and began to teach me how to dance. That experience remains as one of my fondest memories as a young boy.

 

It was truly magical.

Music and dance has been a part of my life ever since. 

 

As a wedding DJ I always feel honored to share such an amazing day with my clients  and their friends and family.

It brings me great joy to add to the magic and excitement of such a special day. I take great care in delivering the kind of experience my clients want to have and love seeing their smiles while they dance the night away. 

 

After 15 years of DJing weddings, I still get excited about every wedding I perform at and pour my heart and soul into my performance.

 

In my free time, I enjoy producing my own music and dancing, of course!
