Born in Detroit with the soulful sounds of Motown flowing through my veins, I currently rock out in Rochester, Michigan.ma
DJ for Over

Years and Playing

Before becoming a Disc Jockey I spent 15 years in the restaurant business, which gives me tremendous insight into coordinating every aspect of your reception.
I firmly believe the experiences I gleaned during those years have directly impacted my success in the wedding industry as a DJ for over 25 years in the Metropolitan Detroit area.

I am convinced numerous reception sites recommend me not only for my DJ skills, but because I have an intimate understanding and respect of what caterers call the ‘back of the house.’ There is no nicer compliment than to walk into a venue and have the staff say, ‘So glad it’s you M.A.!’


When it comes to music, my passion runs the gamut — from Coltrane jazz (thanks to my dad for taking his 14-year-old daughter to Bakers) and funk (from my glory days at the roller rink where I first started spinning in high school) — to Queen, Madonna, and JT. My favorite genre , if pressed to choose is Motown and Old Soul; Stevie, Otis, Sam, Jackie, MJ, and Aretha; and my fav James Brown’s “Get Up Offa That Thing” does hilarious and fabulous things to a dance floor! Country music isn’t my favorite and I tell you this because if you are a lover of Country and have a room full of Country-lovin’ guests there are better DJ’s for you; but I will admit that I still get choked up during the Father-Daughter dance to Rascal Flatt’s “My Wish.”

I use my extensive song catalogue to maintain the flow of the evening and keep the dance floor full without needing to interject silly, inappropriate comments and gags to fill your dance floor. So, if you are looking for a personal, welcoming reception that is elegant, warm, and tremendously fun, I am the person you want providing the soundtrack to your memories on the most important day of your life.
I don’t just play music, I feel it, and I understand the power it has to transform a room.
