Rusty mostly DJs at his local scene in Orlando, Fl, but has also DJed
at nearly ever scene in Florida. His DJing experience is informed by
his musical background – having spent time as a vocalist, brass
player, sound technician, and percussionist before he took up this
role.

With a diverse background, he has diverse taste in swing music, and
his collection reflects this. Ultimately, though, just as with the
other musical pursuits, its the joy of entertaining that drives him to
try to find the songs you’ll love the most.

Dj Kelly

Dj Kelly

Swing DJ

Kelly has been part of the swing scene for over a decade… so she’s heard more than a few songs over the years. She’s been teaching swing dance for many years and she absolutely loves watching new and experienced dancers craft their skill and grow. As an experienced dancer herself, she has a keen knowledge of what Lindy Hoppers enjoy dancing too and appreciates different peoples taste in music. She also doesn’t mind taking requests, and if she has a song you really want to dance to, she’s always happy to play it for you.

Swing DJ

Chad first DJ’d for Orlando in 2010. His versatility and musical variety keeps things fresh throughout the night, and everyone is able to find something that gets them dancing. Chad also has exceptionally cool hair. This lends little to his DJ skills, but we still thought it was worth mentioning.

Dj Sami

Dj Sami

Swing DJ

Sami enjoys watching dancers on and off the dance floor having a great time. His balanced and diverse selection of songs will enable dancers to utilize their full creativity, leaving them energized and ready for the next tune. Each song feels like a different experience, while maintaining a certain flow from the last.

Throughout the night, the tempo of songs in his sets rises and falls in order to transmit hierarchy and variety. It also ensures that dancers of all levels can enjoy themselves. He focuses on possibilities for musicality and moments for a dancer to incorporate jazz steps, breaks and style into their Lindy Hop.

Sami picks each song with care, ensuring that the instrumentation and vocals utilized create rhythm & melody that maintain a high energy on the dance floor. These songs engage dancers to feel the music and add that energy into their dancing and in turn encourage their dance partner to do the same.

Dj Hurley

Dj Hurley
