Featured on "Dancing Astronaut" - Hip, Edgy, and Upbeat; I will respond to all messages within 48 hrs guaranteed (usually 24). Event Management + Marketing EXP.
Mobile / Club Style DJ with experience in both the Miami and San Francisco Markets. I play music that will make you dance with my inspiration coming from artists such as; Gramatik, Claude VonStroke (Dirtybird Records), Jamie Jones, Destructo, Illenium, Oliver Heldens, Flume, Route 94, Bassnectar, GRiZ, Big Gigantic, and Odesza.
I have my own equipment. I can make custom playlists for your event at no extra charge. I have event and party planning experience that you may inquire about.
This guy just gets it. The music he played all evening was perfect for our dinner party. I highly recommend CHRIS/SWIGS. He is punctual, very communicative, and has an ear for the type of music you are looking for to make your event successful.
Response from Swigz:
Thank you so much for the review Heather! I had a fantastic time playing for your event :).
Fashion shows are very demanding and he did a spectacular job. Very professional and friendly, great music on time and worked well with designers and staff. Look forward to working with him again. Highly recommended.
We booked Swigs to handle the music for our charity event (SFCharityFashionShow.com), both for the runway show itself and for the post-event after party.
He showed up on-time, set up quickly and coordinated the musical requirements of 6 designers, blending them seamlessly into a smooth, high-energy show (no easy task). He then transitioned the music into a dance scene, reading the crowd and adjusting styles on the fly to keep the evening moving.
I strongly recommend him and would use him again without hesitation..
Price Range: $100 and up

What to Expect
In order for me to effectively prepare for an event - I need to gather a few details about the environment and the audience. I have a vast library of music and it is important that I bring the proper selection of songs that vibes best with your specific crowd!
At the very least I will ask:
What is the age range?
What are some artists you listen to?
Is there a theme for the event?
Optional: provide 4-7+ songs that you'd like to hear
From this I will be able to create a unique set specifically for your party :) - I am also happy to include any additional information that you may want to provide.
I will help plan, setup, and organize anything that you may need assistance with. I have a lot of marketing experience as well and am happy to help get the word out about your event (if required).
I will arrive early and you can expect me to be professional and charismatic. I have my own mixing equipment and can provide speakers if needed.
Swigs' love for music originates from his time spent on the Underground Dance Floors of Miami, Fl. "Don't trust a DJ that can't Dance" - Swigs is an artisan at feeling and maintaining his crowd's energy. Powerful builds and melodic accents are consistent themes throughout his sets and he loves exploring new ways to mesh different genres together.
After his time spent in Miami, Swigs moved to San Francisco where he was then exposed to groovy-filled west coast bass lines. This expanded his mixing style by adding funk-inspired tones, complex beat design, and just enough "weirdness" to give crowds the confidence to let loose and truly be themselves.
Swigs truly values the importance of a good environment and works for hours preparing for a set or show to ensure that the song selection is perfect and that his mixing is crisp. He is constantly looking for new ways to expand his creativity and does not settle for "okay" or even "good enough" - Swigs will do all that he can to blow you away!
Most importantly, Swigs values his audience and his customers. He strives to create a new and unique experience every time and puts all of his profits into improving the sound and production quality for live performances. He loves meeting new people and carries a constant aura of positivity. Swigs has a work ethic rivaled by only a few and may seem to have an even greater passion for your event than yourself! His work ethic is complimented by a cool and collected persona that makes 'planning and preparing' an enjoyable experience.
Additional Booking Notes
I will need access to an outlet and speakers that can preferably be connected to with XLR cables. If you do not have speakers with this capability, then I can possibly provide my own (depends on the venue).
I have extension cords and alternate audio connections (if XLR is not an option).
