About Us:

Since early high school year friends, Jeff and Joel had always been surrounded by music. Whether it was Joel hosting hip hop nights and shows out of his parents restuarant supporting local talent, or Jeff being active in the nightlife DJ community by attending clubs and bars to support his DJ friends, music is a topic of great interest for the two. 


it was the beginning of 2010 that the two had an opportunity to share a night as a DJ and emcee combo. After an overwhelming amount of support that night, the two realized they shared something special that they could offer.


Together we bring, Boomsquad
