Friday, July 14th: DJ Lucy will be dropping his signature beats as of 9:30pm.
DJing was always something DJ Lucy enjoyed doing on the side. But as an amateur jockey at college, performing in various parties and events allowed him to evolve and grow his own style—a self-described style of fresh and energetic beats. And in 2015, he even launched his very own event label, Ting Ting Disco. Lately DJ Lucy has started to incorporate more indie, jazz and any other groovy beats, but his tried & true favorites are still hip hop, rock and punk. His DJing philosophy is to always start off slow with classic rock and sensual R&B and then build it up throughout the evening. No matter the event, DJ Lucy will always match the music to the atmosphere and make sure everyone has a good time.
