The Beantown Sound owner, Samuel Lurie, began his DJ career at age 15. Star-struck at the sight of another entertainer at Summer camp dance, Samuel asked if he could watch from 'inside the booth'. Fascinated by this DJ, Samuel immediately asked for a job as a DJ assistant, and the rest is history.
Throughout his high school years, Samuel helped make parties exciting while working as an assistant for other older, more experienced DJ's. All the while, carefully studying different events, practicing the art of beat-mixing, and learning the MC's tricks of the trade. Slowly but surely he began to break free from working for others, and soon had the foundations of well respected entertainer.
While attending college and earning a degree in Computer Information Systems, Samuel finely crafted the art of being a DJ, and transformed it into being an MC and an Entertainer. Now well out of college, Samuel and his crew at The Beantown Sound entertain over 150 events yearly. His services have been requested for events over 2 years in advance. Samuel has performed throughout all 6 New England states, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Israel, and even China. He has been seen headlining nightclubs and events in and around Boston with crowds of 3000 plus, for over a decade. Although events such as those are incredible to perform, he still prefers the small, more personal, private party market.
Samuel's skills lay only partially in his music mixing abilities. When handed a microphone, he morphs Bar-Mitzvah's, Wedding's, Sweet-16's, School Dances and Corporate parties into life changing memories. He's always working towards bettering his shows by attending DJ conferences like the International DJ Expo, and other DJ idea sharing seminars, workshops and showcases across the United States. Samuel is also a proud member of The American Disc Jockey Association, and the National Association of Mobile Entertainers.
With over 10 years experience now under his belt, Samuel's high-energy approach, paired with new and innovative games, contests, line dances, and party challenges make him the ideal entertainer for any event, function, or celebration. His dynamic personality, quick wit sense of humor, and vast music knowledge put him in a class above other mobile entertainers.

Sam did an amazing job DJing and MCing our wedding. Everything was well planned out in advance and was executed flawlessly. The music selection was spot on; the dance floor was packed all night long. At the end of the wedding and in the days following numerous guests we talked to all mentioned that they had a blast and loved the DJ at our wedding!Sent on 01/21/2011
I could not recommend someone more highly than Sam. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Our wedding would not have been as amazing as it was if we had hired another DJ.

Sam Lurie made our wedding incredible. Before the event he sent me easy-to-understand paperwork so I could give him the information to tailor the music to exactly what I wanted. He was totally honest and transparent throughout, answering my questions openly so my expectations were carefully managed. He wanted to know how to pronounce all names correctly - a detail that seems small but that I have seen messed up at countless affairs! My mother has quirky music taste and he even made her a "Natalie Megamix" with 30-45 seconds of her favorite songs, so we could dance to them without ruining the flow of the party and so she could feel special. He counseled me about parent-child dance choices, was able to communicate with me largely by email, and just made everything fantastic. Cannot say enough good things. I'd hire him again anytime - he is the consummate professional and knows how to make people get up and have a great night!Sent on 04/20/2010
