Jan Davis Entertainment and Events is proud to have Aaron as the head of its DJ Division. DJ Aaron has more than 8 years of DJ experience under his belt and has performed for over 1,000 events, including weddings, corporate, private and social events across the Virginia, Maryland and Washington,DC area. His love of music began as a pianist, and he eventually played woodwinds and brass as well. This period in his life gave him a great fundamental knowledge of Classical Music, so Aaron is well versed in beautiful ceremony music or background music for any elegant-style reception. Aaron has performed instrumental music locally and internationally for more than 15 years, but as far back as he can remember most of his money was spent building an expansive library of music. That library included everything from classical to oldies, disco to rock, and current top 40 hits. By the age of 16 his personal library contained over 2,500 albums. Although his love of music drove him to amass this diverse and large library of music, the thought of being a DJ had never occurred to him until he was asked by a friend to play music at a party. That was it! Aaron fell in love with the job at his first taste of being a Disc Jockey and he has never looked back. "I used to sit around making mix tapes off of my favorite CD's and radio tracks, so I know I was destined to be a DJ! "Looking back on it now," he says with a smile, "it should have been so obvious!"
DJ Aaron loves his job and that combined with his love of all styles of music really translates across the footlights to the audience. His charm and outgoing personality, coupled with his knowledge of music and his level of experience make him a great choice for anyone who wants to have a great party or event. And remember-a wedding reception does not have to be boring to be classy. With Aaron's incredible knowledge of music, he can incorporate your favorite requests, combine those songs with his recommendations, and make it a memorable occasion for everyone. For your wedding reception, Jan Davis Entertainment and Events DJ's do not dictate to you what kind of music you should or should not like. Music is a very personal thing. It's your wedding reception and you will tell us what songs you would like to have played.
Aaron Specializes in Virtual Vinyl, a software program that allows him to scratch music and video files with special timecode vinyls/cds. This allows him to mix music and Music Videos which he can display on a big screen for a club-type atmosphere. Available by request only.

DJ Keith is a great addition to our roster because he brings his unique talents as a DJ and a guitarist. At 15 years old, Driver taught himself to play the guitar – and he knew from that moment on music was going to be his passion. By 1990, Keith was going to school, working as a DJ at his home town radio station and singing at local restaurants five days a week. Radio and live performances would allow Keith to build a following throughout Virginia and North Carolina that would follow him to the present. Keith moved to Nashville and began working with great legends of the Grand Ole Opry, which gave him the national exposure he needed to take his career to the next level. After recording 3 albums between 1994 and 2001, Keith began to see his hard work pay off. His life-long dreams of playing the Opry had come true, he had toured the U.S. several times, and he had secured his place within the Nashville music industry.
In 2002, feeling drained from a hectic recording and touring schedule, Keith retreated to his Virginia home for a short vacation only to be called by close friend to return to Nashville to participate in the production of an album that would change his life - an album that was to be a tribute to Country Music Hall of Famers Charles and Ira Louvin released by Universal, a collaboration among such artists as James Taylor, Glen Campbell, Vince Gill, Linda Ronstadt and Dolly Parton. The album won 2 Grammy's and he was invited to celebrate at the home of CNN TV legend Larry King and his wife Shawn. Keith again returned to Virginia to rest and recuperate, and decided to stay to form a new band, and return to radio. As the newest air personality of Richmond's #1 country station 93.1 the WOLF, Keith was excited about his future as a professional on-air Disc Jockey and the possibilities it could bring.
Deciding to combine his skill and experience as a bandleader presenting live music with his exceptional talents on the microphone, Keith decided to become a professional DJ for corporate, private and social events. Keith easy style and presentation, poise on the microphone, and extensive musical experience brings an air of professional rarely found in someone as young as Keith. With his added touch of being able to play and sing live, it brings you a unique and special combination not found often in this business. For this wonderful and unique presentation, contact Jan Davis Entertainment and Events now 703-461-7253 and ask for DJ Keith!

DJ Ed has 15 years of experience as a professional DJ. Getting stuck doing the DJ work for all the family cookouts got him a very early start! He then began studying with the area's Top DJ's to learn to perfect his craft. As a true professional, he strives to be the very best at what he does, constantly re-working and updating his repertoire and equipment. Among his many unique qualities is his attitude towards how an event should be run. He firmly believes that a DJ does not need to be the "star of the show" nor does he need to resort to clown antics. For weddings, DJ Ed believes that the focus should be kept on the bride and groom. Although he will do all the emcee requirements, he does not say things like "OK, everyone get up on the dance floor". He knows that his great mix of music will do the job of getting people up and never feels like he has to nag guests to get out on the floor. DJ Ed wears a conservative black suit instead of a tux for weddings, as he believes if the DJ wears a tux it upstages the groom.
His equipment is very unique to the DJ profession here in Metropolitan area, and is the best choice if you are considering a DJ for your wedding and want all the bases covered. He can mic the officiate, the bride and groom and other music if needed, and he will record the ceremony as it takes place if requested.
