I'm a DJ who understands the way music makes good moments great.
I work with you in order to create playlists of thoughtfully selected songs to help celebrate every facet of your new marriage. I do a ton of preparation to be sure I'm creating the right mood for you and the people you care enough to invite to your wedding.
I was born in a record store and educated on the radio. During my 20+ years in New York, I was a resident DJ at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square before finding out how fun it is to play weddings. Now I'm splitting my time between the tri-state area/Hudson Valey and the Reno/Tahoe area.
My extensive knowledge covers a wide variety of genres, including salsa, electronic, hip-hop, jazz, oldies, pop, R&B, rock and top 40. The DJ's services include:

The Most Wonderful DJ
We can’t say enough good things about working with Julie. She crafted an inspired wedding playlist that kept everyone dancing all night, but also incorporated songs that catered to our eclectic tastes. We’re not a very dance-y crowd so I was nervous about keeping everyone entertained, but Julie did such a beautiful job reading the room and adjusting the music as necessary. She even picked up on an inside joke with our friends and surprised everyone with THE PERFECT SONG! We would absolutely look forward to another party with DJ Julie!Sent on 12/10/2019

Julie was incredible. She made sure to play a wide range of music given the parameters we provided, but also played some surprises that were a big hit. So many guests raved about her after the wedding. We couldn't be more pleased! Thank you, Julie! Our party was fun and memorable because of you.Sent on 12/30/2019

Creating super vibe and non-stop dancing
Julie was absolutely top-notch throughout preparation and all the way through our wedding celebration. All our guests raved about her music selection and how she kept the vibes going and everyone on the dance floor all night long. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good time. We would definitely book her again!Sent on 09/17/2019
DJ Julie is a a friend,mentor, and excellent DJ. She is the kind of DJ who after guiding you through the process of planning the music and completely exceeding your highest expectations with her performance, you will remember her fondly as a friend that helped make your wedding that much more spectacular. There is something to be said about hiring a independent DJ rather than going through a entertainment company. It makes the entire process that much more personable which is something you will grow to appreciate and sincerely thank yourself for in the end.
Julie is great to work with.
