I've been DJing for 9 years. From 2010 to 2012 I spun Saturday nights at Pianos in Manhattan (Lower East Side). After that I did another Saturday night residency focusing on modern bass, pop and house music. I've also done numerous international student events, weddings, proms, and fund raisers.
I love working with people to design a fun experience. This includes: Playlist selection (as specific or general as you like), Custom mashups, MCing (shout-outs, dedications, announcements, etc.), lighting and atmosphere.
I love contemporary pop, hip hop and house music, but also '70s funk/soul, classic rock, '80s/'90s pop, reggae, dub, dancehall and soca. My fee includes a PA/lighting system suitable for most small/medium venues. If you expect 200+ people I'll work with you to obtain additional equipment.
"DJ IBG was absolutely amazing for our wedding. He did a great job of communicating with us throughout the entire pre-wedding process and used a playlist of songs that we created. He played all of the songs, even the obscure soul tracks that were specifically requested by our parents. It was such an amazing experience; the sound system was perfect for the space and the music was so good we couldn't stop dancing. The mixes that he used on the songs were well produced and flowed really nicely from one song to the next. He was a perfect emcee for the entire night; if we did it again, we wouldn't change a thing. A few of our guests have even asked for his contact info for their own wedding. We highly reccommend DJ IBG for all your DJ needs!" - Reva Eiferman/Henry Powell (Married Couple)
“DJ IBG nailed the vibe we wanted for our wedding reception. He took our general suggestions about song selection and expanded upon them in a skillful and fun way that pleasantly surprised us and kept the dance floor burning long after we had anticipated. If you need an eclectic, fun and tasteful DJ for your wedding we highly recommend IBG.” - Gregory Patterson/Peggy Hung (Married Couple)
"DJ IBG's weekly residency at our establishment was always professional, and his tunes were ace, mixing lots of genres and moods -- everything from classics to the latest hits. Plus, the various theme nights were very successful. You can tell he doesn't take himself too seriously, and just wants people to have a memorable and fun night. He definitely helped boost our Saturday night sales and introduced our venue to a totally new crowd. Honestly, we're at a loss for what to do with Saturday nights. You guys [DJ IBG and DJ BCKWLD] are irreplaceable…." - Erik Schwab, Director of Entertainment & Visual Promotion at Woodman's Bar & Grill
“DJ IBG and [co-DJ] DJ BCKWLD did an amazing job at our 2017 Prom. First, they met with the Prom committee to understand the vibe of the party. The DJs then used most of their playlist and expertly augmented it to make it even better. The dance floor was full for the entire night! Everyone had a great time, even the chaperones; and some students told me it was the best dance they had attended. I recommend their services highly.” - Erika Dixon, Prom Coordinator (Orono High School, Orono, ME)
"IBG performed at three of our department's infamous post-conference parties, where each time he rocked it! With his impeccable track selection, smooth technical skills, and electric energy, IBG knows how to get people on their feet, and his sound appeals to a diverse range of audiences. He had us dancing on the tables into the small hours! Truly a DJ who is a master of his craft." - Dr. Detwyler, Director of MA Studies, East Asian Languages and Cultures Department, Columbia University
“DJ IBG did a wonderful job at our annual New Year's Eve open house. Folks of all ages and backgrounds danced for hours to classics and current hits. We'd love to have him come back again to spin!” - Clare Davitt, Bangor Public Library Event Coordinator
