What's up party people! This is DJ SHARAD checking in after a long and extremely busy month of working on events around the world!


This year we are celebrating 10 years of the Ted Smooth Old School Jam and will be hosting the jam once a month from June - September.


On Sunday June 1st, my DJUSA team had the privelige of handling the entire sound production for the TED SMOOTH OLD SCHOOL JAM. This summertime party held outdoors has become a staple event in the Hip Hop community. The Ted Smooth Old School Jam started with Ted Smooth and a bunch of DJ's in a park over a decade ago has transformed into the go to event for hip hop heads, DJs, dancers, and the community at large! With the Slogan "We Are The Culture" all over the promotion for this event, it is true indeed that the TED SMOOTH OLD SCHOOL JAM is exactly that!


Over the past 10 years some of the most well known, well respected, and most influential DJs in the world have performed at this monumental event! I have had the pleasure of knowing Ted for over a decade so when we teamed up with him to handle sound production 4 years ago it was an opportunity that could not be missed. Over the last 4 years that I have been involved, I have seen the event grow not only in attendance, but also with the overall organization and production element! Ted Smooth's dedicated Team Straight Face works for hours on end in the off season and leading up to the event to ensure that the Old School Jam is nothing less than perfect!


Last Sunday was a little more special because I got an opportunity to play an hour long DJ set. Although DJUSA produced the sound for the past 4 years, I never DJ'ed at an Old School Jam! One day a few weeks ago I just mentioned it to Ted and he said "of course you can get on, you are family!" Being a DJ who has played all over the world in all types of arenas, this was a gig I had to prepare for because all of the best in the world have played here. When you come to Ted Smooth's Park the rules are simple: Come correct and have fun!


I have seen the best in the business including Red Alert, Kid Capri, Clark Kent, Tony Touch, DJ Scratch, Funkmaster Flex, Just Blaze and so many more in that park over the years that it was an honor to be able to play on the same set! Last Sunday's Highlight was definitely when Kid Capri and Just Blaze both showed up and BODIED the turntables! You never know who is gonna show up!


If you missed this past Sunday's event, be sure not to miss this summer's events which are scheduled to happen on July 13th, August 10th, and September 7th! To see pictures of this past Sunday's Ted Smooth Old School Jam, check #tedsmootholdschooljam on Instagram and Ted Smooth's website!

The summer just started and I've got your SM Event Group update!! (DJUSA's affiliate company) - Over the years I've had the pleasure of working with some awesome people and we kicked off the Memorial Day weekend with some of the best!

SM Event Group designed a room to showcase new software and products to CEO's and CIO's from various companies. After the Microsoft event, I went straight to Valhalla New York to produce the SL Green Realty Corp outdoor mixer for clients. This was a fun outdoor event showcasing various outdoor furniture elements as white wicker furniture, white leather tufted arrangements, florals, and of course  great food by Thomas Preti Caterers!

DJ nine7one rocks NEEL & SILKY'S WEDDING ON Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas 

Book DJUSA Today! Book DJUSA Today! Book DJUSA Today!

This past May I had the opportunity to DJ an amazing wedding on the cruise ship - The Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas in Bermuda. It was a 5-day cruise where I rocked all the wedding events starting from the sangeet, baraat, ceremony and reception. 


The sangeet took place in one of the event spaces on the ship and was full of energy.  The baraat and ceremony were held onshore once we docked in Bermuda.  The island officials shut down one of the main roads on the island just for the baarat!  The ceremony was held at a historic Naval Ground, which was breathtaking.  The reception held later that evening was at a beautiful skating rink onboard the vessel.  I played every genre of music and kept guests dancing the night away!


- DJ Nine7One


Here is what the couple had to say about the event on our WeddingWire – “We had DJ Nine7One (Akshay) manage the music for our 5 night cruise wedding on Royal Caribbean. He played all the music we requested at exactly the right time. He solved problems with playback during the baarat and worked with everyone extremely well. He was on time, respectful to everyone, prepared, and calm during times of chaos. He got along with all the guests and became part of our family by the end of the trip. Akshay went above and beyond our expectations and helped us to have the time of our lives.”

DJ Rohit Recaps #MDW2014 in Jersey, Philly and Virginia!

Book DJUSA Today! Book DJUSA Today!

Memorial Day weekend is always a very busy weekend for DJUSA and this weekend was no different. We had events in a lot of different cities and we did exactly what we always do “ROCKED THEM ALL”.


I personally DJ'ed in South Jersey, Philadelphia and Virginia for Memorial Day weekend. I started my MDW 2014 on Wednesday in South Jersey where is DJ'ed an awesome sangeet with 600 people rocking all night on the dance floor. There was also a live band singing everyone's favorite songs. The Live Band and I went back and forth playing music and made sure that everyone had a great time. My crew and I left Friday night to go to Downtown Philadelphia for an all day Saturday event. We knew that our event on Saturday starts early so we started our equipment setup as soon as we got to the Venue on Friday night/Saturday Morning. We finished the setup around 6am and were up 2 hours later to start the event. I started my Saturday with a baraat so big that we had to shut down two blocks in downtown Philadelphia. Energy level during this baraat was so high that the baraat went overtime as guests would not stop dancing. Our day Saturday ended at 2am after the wedding ceremony and dinner setup break down as my crew and I left to go to Virginia for another all day event. I started my day Sunday with two ceremonies leading into a baraat followed by a cocktail hour and the reception. With almost no sleep and a lot of red bull in the system we rocked this all day event. To sum it up, MDW 2014 was a magical weekend, which consisted of minimal sleep, lots of traveling, rocking events and making beautiful memories for our clients that will last a lifetime.


Make sure to check out to see all the testimonials from our MDW 2014 and all the other clients. Also, follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @DJRohitNYC as I take you guys with me to every event by posting pictures and videos from all the events I rock. I will also be releasing two new remixes which will be available for free download on my website and SoundCloud, SO STAY TUNED!!!

DJ Avi Joins The DJUSA Team!

Book DJUSA Today! Book DJUSA Today!

What's up world? My name is DJ Avi and I am excited to say that I am the newest member of the DJUSA crew. Born and raised in New York City music has always been a way of life for me. Listening to late night mix shows on the radio as a kid really inspired me to enter the world of DJing and once I played my first song for a crowd I never looked back! 8 years later I can say that music has allowed me to travel the country and play in Philadelphia's most exclusive nightclubs. This year I was able to take my talents to the Philadelphia airwaves. You can catch me mixing live each and every weeknight on 94.5FM PST from 11pm-12am as I play all of your favorite hits in the mix bringing the club experience to you! Hopefully I'll be coming to a party near you!
