Wedding Host / DJ
Sam Lurie began his DJ career at age 15. Star-struck at the sight of another entertainer at Summer camp dance, Sam asked if he could watch him work from ‘inside the booth’. Fascinated by this DJ, Sam immediately asked for a job as a DJ assistant, and the rest is history.
Now nearly 20 years later, Sam’s experience as a mobile DJ, position him to offer both thoughtful insight, and seasoned experience when entertaining TSG weddings. If you meet with him, don’t be surprised to hear him say something like: “I fully understand, no one is coming to your wedding to see me.” Sam’s style is entirely based on the customization of each couples unique wishes and requests, meeting and exceeding those needs, while delivering a professional, and classy approach throughout.
Before the event, Sam prides himself in precision planning. He believes the more work he puts in with brides and grooms prior to each wedding, the smoother and more successful they are. During the event, Sam is a well-spoken, polished MC, but chooses not to speak much beyond the coordination and direction he receives from each couple he works with. Sam will tell you, “if I can play your requests, take some guests requests, and play what I think will work from reading the crowd live, the dance floor should be packed, and I won’t say anything on the mic at all.” Sam knows playing the right music, in the right order, and mixing it well, keeps dance floors full, and the energy level high.
Sam entertains 40-50 weddings each year, and has been requested for events over 2 years in advance. He has performed throughout all 6 New England states, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Israel, and even China. In June of 2013, Sam was the featured DJ in DJ Times Magazine, and a guest speaker at The DJ Expo in Atlantic City, NJ. While he’s checked off several “bucket-list” items throughout his DJ career, Sam firmly believes the single best achievement is when a bride and groom tell him that he helped make the best night of their lives.
