Born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina, Justin Reid has been DJ’ing and entertaining weddings and private events since 2003. His adventures in DJ’ing have taken him to several major cities including Atlanta, Chicago and Las Vegas. He has always had a great love and passion for music, so when the opportunity to become a DJ he jumped at the chance. Justin started DJ’ing part-time on weekends, but over time, he decided to go full-time and dove head first, DJ’ing 4-5 nights a week for various clubs and events and became an on-air radio personality for a couple years. Justin has been a full-time DJ since 2007. Justin’s passion lies in creating fun and unique events, especially weddings and corporate event production and design. He has a B.A. in Graphic Arts from The University of South Carolina – Upstate, so his eye for design ties in quite well to creating a particular aesthetic and experience when it comes to weddings and events. From the business side of things, promotional and website design are a couple of his strengths.
