Some clients have thought that a DJ is just supposed to play music and may feel that the cost is too high just for a person to drop a track when an iPod or playlist can do the same.
Published in St. Louis Bride & Groom Magazine, USA Today, National Bridal Service, and The Knot and Brides Magazine, 78% of clients stated that they would have made the entertainment their highest priority! And 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about an event is the entertainment! The DJ!
As you can see, an iPod or playlist cannot compare to the art form of music placement — which your DJ is very skilled in!

WHAT’S IN A NAME!!!
My name is DJ Knightrin — a private, wedding and corporate event DJ in the DMV. I have been a big fan of music from a young age, avidly listening to every single genre from Smooth Jazz, Dance, Pop, Hip Hop, and Rhythm and Blues to Calypso, Soca, Kaiso, Dancehall and Reggae.
As a teenager listening to music helped me to successfully navigate life’s twists and turns. Music was my medium for expressing my thoughts and emotions. I did everything to music; it was almost as if I lived with a constant soundtrack.
I even studied with music; without it, my grades dropped. My other passion was combining genres in my spare time, like DJ Fidel. I felt like a song could be elevated by just mixing the melody with the unexpected; like playing an R&B song on a reggae rhythm. I enjoyed creating an element of surprise with my fusions.
Now, this brings me to my DJ name. KNIGHTRIN is a fusion of two words – “knight” and “trin” and represents where I’m from and also symbolizes a history of misunderstandings. “Knight” represents the high school I graduated from, Frank W. Ballou; a school that has a negative reputation for producing graduates that accomplish nothing with their lives. But that is slowly changing.
“Trin” is for the Caribbean island where I was born: Trinidad. I came to the United States when I was 12 and one of the biggest problems I faced was a lack of global knowledge on the part of the people I met. When I would tell someone where I’m from, the automatic assumption was that it was located somewhere in Africa or Jamaica.
It was during this stage of my life that I recognized the POWER MUSIC had to COMMUNICATE, HEAL and UNITE.
Today, I am DJ KNIGHTRIN, a successful graduate of Ballou High, proud Trini, and a private, wedding and corporate event DJ in the DMV. And in a metropolitan area as diverse as the DMV, I aim to shatter stereotypes and connect cultures through music.
I had no grand intentions of becoming a professional DJ, but in the early 2000s, I would create beats for fun and a friend gave me a software called Virtual DJ and a controller. He informed me that I had a keen ear for music and that I should try DJing. A few years later, I began Djing for my friends’ birthday parties and on special occasions. At one of those events, I met another individual who gave me the courage to DJ on a larger platform. With his experience and knowledge of the DJ arena, I was put on the roster as a local DJ for hire at clubs like the former Library Bar and Grill, Zanzibar Club at the waterfront and the Axum Club.
I have now been an independent event and wedding DJ for almost a decade. I have done everything from weddings, high school proms, Sweet 16s, clubs, other special events, and very unconventional themed parties.
With every job, I carry that little boy who studied to music and that teenager who found joy in creating genre-bending fusions. I aim to share my fire and passion with as many friends, clients, and couples!
Welcome to the KNIGHTRIN fusion vibe!!! Party With Me Today, Reminisce for a Lifetime!
My commitment is to set a high standard of professionalism and create innovative mixes to suit the taste of my clients per event. I consider my style of mixing to be a fusion of different genres as my inspirations are Top 40, Pop, Hip-Hop, and R&B, Soca, Dancehall, Reggae and Club/House. Great for weddings, parties, and corporate events! Thanks for stopping by to learn a little about me.
