DJ Keith

Keith's parents surrounded him with a wide variety of music ranging from disco, funk, jazz, and rock at an early age. There was always something playing on the console stereo. With his interest peaked, he began collecting music at the age of 7. Once in high school music took a new and exciting turn, it was the birth of hip hop. Due to the popularity of this new music style Keith took up break dancing with his pals around the school lunchroom. After accomplishing his skills he and his “crew” decided to enter a contest at a local teen club. They perfected a routine over the course of a few weeks and won the top prize of an early Numark DJ mixer, the year was 1986.

Upon receiving their first DJ mixer Keith and his crew gathered every speaker and turntable they could find, as well as their parents precious vinyl records and created the first mobile DJ rig the area had ever seen. Once the parents got wind of this needless to say they were not happy to find out that they began “scratching” their records. Those days soon passed and in 1989 Keith got his first gig at Numbers Nightclub in Houston, running the light show on Wednesday nights with DJ Curtis. Two years later he moved to Austin and began working the back rooms of clubs like Basics, Back Street, Ohms and Proteus with a multimedia set up that incorporated DJ music, visuals and video clips. It was one of the first of it's kind in Austin.

By the late 90's Keith gained a DJ residency in the historical entertainment district known as 6th street, a full time position five nights a week. Although the DJ format of the 6th street venues was more mainstream, Keith's passion for music gave him the ability to find success. Whether it was the after work crowd, or the college students later in the night, Keith used his skills to drive sales and keep a healthy crowd within the venue. It wasn’t long before customers began to approach him and hire him to DJ weddings and special events. Quickly realizing how rewarding it was to DJ these types of events it rapidly became his main focus. Keith enjoys taking the time to get to know the client personally. By learning the likes and dislikes of each client he can use that information to reflect the client's personality and vision and turn it into a reality. Elevating the emotion of the moment through music is his goal. Currently Keith is available for weddings and private events throughout the central Texas area.
