On WeddingWire since 2021

DJ Kerem is for couples who want an *actual* dance party at their wedding. DJ Kerem focuses on allowing couples and their guests to share joy and love through music. If you’re a true music lover who wants a DJ that pays close attention to your tastes and desires, knows how to read a room, and can take your party on a musical journey, look no further.

About DJ Kerem

I am a New Orleans, Louisiana-based DJ specializing in weddings of all sizes and varieties. As an industry professional with over 10 years of experience, I pride myself on an extensive knowledge of music, offering my clients an endless library of tunes to choose from for their special occasions. I allow couples to be as hands-on or as hands-off as they like in the process of selecting the perfect music for their wedding night, and I can guarantee excellent results regardless.


I’ve been rocking the decks since 2012, starting from humble beginnings performing at house parties and dive bars. Since then, my musical journey has taken me to festivals where I’ve played alongside world-famous DJs, to residencies at the Virgin Hotel and Kimpton Hotel Fontenot, and to dozens of weddings where I’ve brought the house down as DJ and MC. Sharing music and joy is my true passion, and I feel so fortunate to be on this path. I’m proud of my reputation as a reliable and versatile purveyor of the freshest and funkiest beats, all over the state of Louisiana.

Services Offered

All of my packages start with 4+ hours of DJ/MC services, a world-class sound system, wireless microphones, and free consultations on music preferences in the run-up to the wedding. My proprietary form for collecting music preferences makes the dynamic between couples and myself a true collaboration that is seamless and fun every step of the way.

No wedding venue is too small or large for my services, and I am happy to work in lockstep with couples to ensure that we find the perfect audio solution for your event. I am happy to service ceremonies, cocktail hours, dinners, and, of course, dance parties!

I am proud to offer my services to folks from underrepresented and marginalized communities such as LGBTQ+ couples and people of color. As a DJ, I place a lot of value on inclusiveness and diversity, and I bring the same approach to weddings!

Who I am

When I'm not busy DJing, I enjoy hanging out with my 7 lb chihuahua, eating Thai food, playing music with my band, and parading with my Mardi Gras krewe Interrobang. I grew up in Istanbul and Florida, and I definitely feel this cross-cultural upbringing informs much about my worldview — including how I approach DJing!

My music

Got questions? Just reach out! Consultations are free, and I'm always happy to chat with couples, regardless of whether you wind up booking me or not. I want couples to make the decision that is right for them, and I'd love to talk further about how to make your dream wedding a reality!

GREAT DJ! Helped put on an AWESOME wedding

Kerem was an amazing DJ at our wedding. He accommodated every request me and my bride had and was even able to orchestrate all of our walk in and ceremony music. Kerem was able to read the room and knew exactly what song to play and at the right time. Everyone was dancing, young and old! Kerem was extremely professional leading up to our wedding date. He made sure he understood our music preferences and he DID NOT DISAPPOINT. Every song was great and party just flowed. I would recommend Kerem 100%. He showed up on time, had all the gear he needed, and just knocked it out of the park. Hire him and he will be a sure-thing for your wedding!

Good vibes and sweaty dancing

Kerem killed it! We'd have him play for our wedding all over again and highly recommend him. He knows how to set the vibe for any occasion. Even the New Orleans summer heat couldn't keep us off of his dance floor.

Dance Floor Was Packed

We hired DJ Kerem for our wedding at Maison Lafitte in Mandeville. We scheduled a zoom and immediately noticed a few albums hung on his walls that we also loved. From there we knew we were in good hands. We made a playlist of a couple of songs for different moods: dinner, ceremony, dancing etc. and in less than 20 songs he managed to get us to a Tee. It was so spot on that at one point a friend asked me if I had made the playlist. We danced all night and it was an absolute BLAST. He was on time, professional, and communicative. Hire DJ Kerem, he is great.
