It's amazing how playing music can completely transport you back into your fondest memories. It forces you to relive those moments. Being able to take people on a journey and seeing all the smiles, laughs, tears, etc that the music can bring is simply spectacular. That to me is why I love being a DJ and continue to embrace this journey.
Tenille Byers, aka Classy and Jazzy DJ, started her life singing. Her parents said she was singing even before she learned to talk. For almost 10 years she has been singing professionally. Jazz standards are her passion, but she can also accommodate special song requests as well. She started DJ and Emcee work to expand her skillset and discovered a whole new way to elevate the party! For me I love when I can take the energy of the crowd and raise it even higher. When you get to that point in the night when the dancefloor is packed and no one wants to leave you know that party is unforgettable!

Why Do You DJ?
As cliche as this phrase is, music is truly the universal language of life.
I will always love the way that a song can put a smile on faces of all ages, races, genders, and everyone in between.
I love the way that DJing allows me to infuse love, understanding, and humanity into any dance floor or celebration.
