These are four words that describe DJ James, a solid 20 plus year veteran of the Bay Area DJ industry. Whether it’s a nightclub/bar, wedding, corporate event, dance or any type of show, DJ King James’ versatility as a professional DJ and MC can accommodate any occasion.
Anyone can play just play music, but DJing is a lot more than that. A product of the early era Bay Area mobile DJ scene, King James learned the art of mixing at the young age of 12 years old. This is where he spent his weekends as a roadie (someone who is an assistant and carries equipment around for DJs) learning different music genres, developing and sharpening his DJ skills.
If you ask him what his favorite type of music is, he would reply with “What is yours?”. His love for music in general can be seen in the spectrum of events he has done. He’s shared the stage with artist ranging from hip hop legends like Doug E Fresh, to R&B legends like Montell Jordan, to house legends like Morgan Page, to island reggae sensation Anuhea, to pop stars like Jon B.
He has played countless corporate events for well known companies including: Bank of America, People Magazine, Kaiser Permanente, Google, Intel, and huge iconic brands such as Nike. It could be an elegant event such as a wedding or a professional event such as a tech conference. Maybe it’s a family-oriented company holiday event or a crazy night on the town at the local nightlife spot. It could even be a surprise birthday party for an all star Major League Baseball player. Event professionals have put their trust in DJ James to lay the foundation for them for many years because it all starts with the music!
