Hello, I'm Jessica.

Jessica McKelvey – DJ / Owner

Jessica McKelvey stands out as one of a select few female DJ’s in Pittsburgh. Notably outgoing and rhythmic, Jessica kicked off her DJ career during college in Erie PA amidst local bars and clubs. She brought the music back home to Pittsburgh in 2005, where she did a residency at a local east side bar and various guest appearances in the Pittsburgh nightlife scene. She’s performed from Ocean City, Maryland to Virginia Beach, and interned at an event planning company in New York City.

With thirteen years of wedding and event experience and a degree in event marketing, DJ Jess does the perfect job at creating the soundtrack to your occasion and acting as an event coordinator or master of ceremony.

A Young MC

Performing and crafting music has always been a passion for Jessica. Trained in violin and dance, she’s forever had the beat running through her veins (and may or may not used to belong to a band called The IQ Party Patrol). She performed onstage in high school and loved working the mic for the morning announcements.

Where I Started

I began DJing while attending Edinboro University. Every Wednesday and weekend, I packed the dance floor and learned how to mix music using CDs. I worked here all throughout college and also worked for another company in Erie. I was even the first female DJ at a popular pub, Sullivans.

In 2012 I received my Masters in Elementary and Special Education. I taught for a few years around Pittsburgh and enjoyed working with children, but my heart truly lies in the world of events, entrepreneurship, and being a DJ/MC.

Event Planning in New York City

I originally wanted to be an event planner and completed an internship in Manhattan for an event planning company in midtown. I have an extensive background and planning – and it shows with my approach to DJing! One of my most favorite parts of being a wedding DJ is the schedule of events that I create with my brides and grooms. I have a spreadsheet method that works perfectly for all styles of wedding timelines.

Experience All Around Pittsburgh

I’ve had the pleasure of working for other entertainment companies in Pittsburgh while maintaining my own business on a small scale. This is how I gained experience and professionalism. I’ve performed everywhere from nightclubs and dive bars to the Gateway Clipper and the Children’s Museum.

1 of a Few Female DJs in Pittsburgh!

With the more mobile transition fro vinyl to mp3 in the DJ industry, more females are breaking in and breaking out beats for the masses. DJ Jess is one of few female event DJs in the Pittsburgh area, not to mention one of the few that beat matches and mixes.
