With over a decade behind the decks under his belt, DJ J.R. has sent crowds rushing to the dance floor at clubs & bars across New York State, the US and Europe. A man of diverse interests, J.R. decided to pursue his passion for music full time after earning his degree in Geology from SUNY University at Buffalo (NY). DJ J.R.’s talent was soon recognized by a Red Bull executive, who booked him for major Red Bull events and parties. He has held residencies at numerous clubs, including Stillwater (voted Buffalo’s best upscale bar 3 years running) and 4-Play, in the heart of the city’s entertainment district. J.R. has also provided the beats for the monthly Battle @ Buffalo, an all ages breakdancing and urban dance competition, for the last 5 years, making him a staple in the city’s Hip Hop community. In 2010, he was voted among the top 5 best club DJs in Buffalo. DJ J.R. has a style all his own, however, he has been compared to legendary DJs such as Z-Trip and the late DJ AM. His style is reminiscent of classic party rocking Hip Hop DJ’s using music from many different genres to create a positive, fun atmosphere that gets people moving.

Most recently J.R. has moved to Los Angeles, bringing his musical stylings to the West Coast.
