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.
But I also DJ a wide range of other types of dance music: new wave, 80 & 90’s pop, hip hop, indie rock, post punk, glam rock, funk, and current top 40 (it all depends on what the dance floor wants to hear).
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.
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).
