BOOK DJ BERN NOW
That’s DJ BERN in a sentence. Taking hits from our memories and mixing them with current selections is how he emotionally connects to the crowd. Having grown up in the mid-90s on Hip-Hop and R&B (From SWV to Wu-Tang Clan), while tapping into his fathers collection of funk and soul from the 70s (Parliament, Sly and the Family Stone), music with soul and emotion was influential in building the foundation of Bern’s spectrum of sound. Today, this translates into sets where he connects to and controls the crowd through emotion; with music that reminisces on our formative years and hits from today that helps us celebrate the good times in life.
A mainstay in the city of Columbus, Ohio, Bern started his DJ journey in 2007 with college campus parties. He quickly transitioned into the local night club scene, with weekly gigs at the most prominent venues in the city. After having his own weekly segment on local FM urban radio, moving to California / Texas / Tennessee and then back home, Bern has spent the past 4 years as one of few premiere DJs in Ohio. Aside from co-founding / performing at marquee events, Orange Soda and Native Tongues (both occurring monthly since 2017), Bern is a resident DJ at Our Bar, Columbus' go to event space.
