DJ Doug

Brooklyn-Based Wedding DJ

631 576-5878

I'm a wedding DJ that specializes in couples looking to put a unique spin on their reception. While most wedding DJs use similar sets for each party they do, mine are tailor-made for each one individually based on your suggestions.

I've been DJing my whole life and am well-versed in many different types of music. In particular, my services are great for couples who LOVE music and want their wedding to reflect their personal tastes, not simply those of the mainstream. I spin indie/alternative, hip-hop, dance hall, synthpop, top 40, funk, disco, and many more. I'm also an experienced public speaker and can handle all MC requirements for everything from the ceremony to the reception's conclusion. 

I take pride in my work, and have a masterful ear for tone and progression, from cocktail hour to a raging dance party. My entire aesthetic is geared towards couples that want their wedding to be an experience like a night out seeing their favorite DJ — but where they actually talked to the DJ ahead of time and got in all their requests. As a person who has been to plenty of weddings where the DJ was sub-par and kind of annoying, it's been my goal to provide an outlet for anyone else out there who has felt the same way and dreamed of something better. 

I consider myself a budget DJ and my rates can be negotiated depending on factors concerning the wedding itself. Shoot me an email at and let's talk! I'm also a music journalist, so Google me to find articles I've written for Stereogum, Brooklyn Magazine, Death and Taxes, Northern Transmissions, and The Awl. 


The last song he played turned the whole thing into this epic moment — We crowd-surfed! I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun in my life.

I’ve told so many people since then that Doug was literally the best decision we made in planning the entire reception. He made our wedding celebration feel like OUR wedding celebration and I can’t tell you what that means to both of us.

We planned an intimate wedding at a beautiful restaurant in just under a month and needed to find a DJ. One of us used to DJ, so it meant a lot to find someone who would reflect our style and personality in the music, and keep people on the dance floor. We stumbled upon Doug somewhat randomly, but it must have been fate because he just GOT us.

We wanted a little bit of everything, and a little bit more of ‘90s hip-hop and dancehall than everything else. Doug listened patiently to our very many requests and served up a killer set at our wedding that had everyone dancing all night and talking about the music and the party for months.

We have Doug to thank for giving us our favorite memory of the wedding — it got to that time when the parents were giving their goodbye hugs and making their way out. And then Doug played Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money,” and our friends went wild (we’re all Brooklyn kids who experience a euphoric effect when we hear jams like that). It was like an instant classic house party! We were having the time of our lives and we could tell our friends were too, and that moment captures exactly how we imagined this wedding to play out. So, thank you Doug for making that happen. You rock.”

Doug made our wedding feel like the perfect party. We still hear from our guests that we had the best wedding DJ. We don’t like to brag, but we agree!’

We were so lucky to find a DJ who could move and shake LIKE THIS!
