What is an A-Ball?!?
She is a Live Event DJ and Music Curator.
What kind of events will A-Ball spin?!?
Ash plays music for one-of-a-kind situations. She particularly loves spinning for events that necessitate a dance party, but that is not a requirement. She collaborates directly with you, so your music ultimately reflects the aesthetic of your singular, unique event.
What kind of tunes can I expect From A-Ball?!?
Ash loves Venn diagrams - she wants to create the perfect mix for your cross-section of revelers. She'll spin everything, from Top 40, EDM, House, Classic Rock, Jazz, Disco, Hip Hop, Trip Hop, Bipimbop, etc. Want her to spin your friend's band from Greenpoint? Yes. Want her to spin Drake? Yes. Want her to spin obscure classic disco? YESSSSS.
What's the difference between A-Ball and an iPod?!?
First of all, she's a human being with feelings, thank you very much. And, sure, like most infants and primates, Ash is able to press play/pause without issue. What sets her apart is the fact that, like most people of her generation, she spent waaaay too much money on post-secondary education and is left with a whole mess of qualifications that make her really unique. Ash is a trained classical musician who graduated summa cum laude in Music Performance, and she has a great natural ear for beat/phrase/key matching. More importantly, she can find the right grooves to get your guests on the floor and make them stay there. Ash also studied DJing under some of the world's best DJs and Producers at Dubspot in NYC, and Traktor is her software of choice. Check out some testimonials!
