One of North America's most highly respected and sought-after DJs, Ashley Ball (call her Ash or A-Ball, she/her) performs and produces music for national broadcasts, awards shows, stadium events, and other unique experiences. She is best known for her live sets at The McKittrick Hotel/Sleep No More, and for producing the opening number for the 2019 Rose Parade, featuring Chaka Khan and Jordan Fisher (Hamilton on Broadway, Disney's Moana).
No DJ-set created alike, A-Ball is preferred by clients for her exceptional communication, musicianship, and sensitivity to distinct environments. She loves getting a crowd hyped, but will always allow the event to remain in focus, enhancing and shaping the mood as opposed to dictating it. She has created/performed live sets for Condé Nast, Google, Tribeca Film Festival, Hillary Clinton, Cirque du Soleil, Amy Schumer, and Paramount Pictures. In 2019, she DJ'd alongside legendary DJ/musician Questlove at The McKittrick Hotel.
As a music producer, A-Ball creates original or remixed pieces that satisfy highly particular needs and parameters. Her production clients include Slack, Broadway Inspirational Voices, Berkshire Hathaway, Sleep No More, Six Flags Parks, Cirque du Fringe, and The Dallas Cowboys.
In addition to DJing and music production, A-Ball is an avid music director and arranger. MD/arranger credits include The Wizard of Oz (Western Canada Theatre), After Party (Cirque du Fringe), and The Hook Club DJ Band (Brooklyn NY).
A-Ball champions equal rights for all. She is a vocal advocate for inclusive-feminism, the LGBTQA+ community, nationwide access to abortion, immigration, environmental preservation, and the BIPOC community. She also thinks everyone should be in therapy.
