As a DJ, I specialize in a wide range of rare soul tracks from from the 1960’s: from girl groups, to R&B, to Northern Soul, and feel-good classic soul — all on original 45RPM vinyl. 

I play records regularly at dance parties* across the Bay Area, and private events (weddings, company parties, fundraisers, secret society speakeasies). I supply all of my own sound equipment, with capacity for vinyl and digital music play. 

You can listen to a sample mix of my music here and here.
If you’re interested in booking me for your event(s), please drop me a line.

Outside of live DJ performances, I’ve also hosted my own music program on KALX 90.7FM (Berkeley, California), and produced NPR's first 24-hour stream of Northern Soul music. You can also listen to a Northern Soul radio special I produced, featuring interviews with Bay Area DJs, and a short audio documentary I made about the SF-based dance party 1964!.

*The short list: Hard French (SF); Club Underground (LA); American Tripps (SF); Oldies Night (SF); 1964! (SF); Jonathan Toubin's Soul Clap & Dance-Off (SF); and Sugar Town (PDX).
