  • Jeff Kessel

    Jeff Kessel has been DJing in New York City for the past 6 years. He performs at weddings, parties, and clubs and enjoys playing a wide range of music mixing rare cuts and timeless jams. He has DJed for comedian Hannibal Burress during his former residency at the Knitting Factory, and has spun at venues ranging from the Park in Chelsea, to an open house in the iconic brownstone from Spike Lee's Crooklyn, among others. Jeff will take from you a selection of songs you wish to be played along with songs that you definitely DO NOT want played and allow those choices to inform his set for the evening. On his own, his sensibilities skew towards 90s R&B and 80s dance numbers, but his musical palate is wide and he is very adaptable.
  • Ben Boylan

Starting out as a hip-hop DJ, his repertoire expanded to classic soul and funk, reggae, rock, 80’s, house and all dance-related music. His most prized accomplishments are gaining over 2 million hits on his online mixtapes, DJing beautiful weddings as far away as California and Texas and holding several multi-year residencies at top New York clubs. For over 10 years Benny has DJed at weddings all over the country and spun at clubs all over New York City... always fueled by an intense love of music, a passion for pleasing crowds and the fun of making mixtapes.
