Pete was fifteen when Henry taught him to DJ.
He would lug in the turntables and amplifier, set it all up, and then sit back to watch Henry orchestrate the dance floor like a puppet master. It was wild and magical. And yet, Pete saw that there was a hidden sophistication to it all, a balanced art to the random chaos.
Since Henry was also a dancer and b-boy, he spent as much time on the dance floor as he did behind the turntables. He would play his favorite song of the moment and then, without warning, disappear into the crowd. The first time he did this, it caught Pete off-guard. Henry hadn’t reemerged in two minutes… Then three. And with the final chorus coming to a close, Pete hurled himself at the turntables, blindly cut to whatever song was queued up next, and became a DJ. It was far from graceful, but even in that haphazard moment, Pete knew that this was something he loved.
Over time, Pete began to expect, and actually encourage, the regular abandonment, and together he and Henry DJed countless parties and events around Boston—long before Pete was old enough to get into most venues. His training came to a close when Henry asked him to DJ his wedding. Four hundred guests, most of whom were professional dancers, piled into the ballroom at the Seaport Hotel in Boston for what was undoubtedly the most legitimate dance party of all time.
In the fourteen years since, Pete has DJed all types of events, ranging from clubs and private parties to live shows and music festivals. Over the years, he’s performed alongside Grammy-nominated artists including Travis Scott, Rick Ross, Rae Sremmurd, Cam’Ron, Jadakiss, Desiigner, Ryan Leslie, Juelz Santana, and A$AP Ferg.
At Q–DJ, Pete ensures that the most beautiful and meaningful days in people’s lives are infused with unique musical curations that reflect their relationship and journey together.

Kept People Dancing All Night
Our wedding was so much more fun because Pete was a part of it. He was extremely flexible and did everything in his power to make our night the most memorable of our lives. Our dance floor was packed from the first dance to the last song of the night and he did a great job of keeping everyone moving. He is such a friendly and warm person. He also was spot on when queuing things for key moments such as for our ceremony and speeches. Would highly recommend!Sent on 05/09/2019

Pete is the absolute best at reading the crowd and playing just the right song at just the right time to keep everyone dancing all night long. And those pine wood speakers are the most beautiful speakers I've ever seen. For once, a speaker that adds to the beauty of the room, rather than detracting from it. I hope we'll be able to team up for another hip-hop dance party soonSent on 06/26/2018
