When your Dad is a classical and jazz pianist and you grow up around music your whole life, it’s probably inevitable that you’ll want to do something that involves music as a career. That’s the path our very own Rob Habermann has taken to get to Elite Entertainment and we couldn’t be happier. He started playing guitar at age 14 and today he plays guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, piano and ukulele. Oh, and he can also sing.
So what does a born musician like this see in DJing? “I went to my first Electronic Dance Music show in 2008,” he tells us, “and the sounds the DJ was able to create and generate live while remixing songs, absolutely blew my mind. I knew this was what I wanted to do … throw a great party and have people dance to the music I was playing.” And to this day that’s still what Rob loves most about DJing, “controlling the flow of a party, and being able to enjoy others around you that are loving what you play.”
It’s this kind of love for celebrations that makes Rob an awesome DJ. When asked about his favorite type of event to spin at he lets us know that any party is a good party: “Everything from House Parties to Weddings. House Parties are more laid back and people will get pretty rowdy at my shows, I love when people have a good time!” But weddings he tells us have a special place in his heart as well: “I love being a part of the most important day of two people’s lives. Every time I hit the song for someone’s first dance, I still get a little choked up.”
Rob is a Wall High School graduate who has studied Communications at Rider and Brookdale. When asked about hobbies he returns to his central life-theme of music and the arts: ”I enjoy going to concerts, I have seen well over 200 performances in my life, from Broadway shows, to dive bars. From Music Festivals like Bonnaroo to The Stone Pony, I love venues and I love live music.”
As a DJ, Rob promises: “I will go above and beyond to make your event one of the greatest, if not the greatest, night of your life.” We’re proud to have this dedicated and talented DJ on staff and if you want to book him for your upcoming event we encourage you to act now!
