THE STORY BEHIND

HIGHER GROUND

WHY HIGHER GROUND?

If you are the type of person who likes to celebrate in style with friends and family, you need an amazing DJ. A true professional. Someone that can handle all the details and command the energy of a room.

The problem is, DJs are a dime a dozen. Many are unreliable and cheesy. This can be frustrating, especially when you do not have the time to research and interview them all...

WE BELIEVE..

This is just plain wrong! Nobody should have to experience a bad, or even mediocre DJ. The best event DJs should provide tailor made entertainment to match the vibe and energy of your party. That is why we curate the best personalities, high-end equipment, and fresh music to bring you a unique entertainment experience. Our goal is simple: 

 

BEST. PARTY. EVER.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO...

All you have to do is fill our team in on all of the details, put together an entertainment plan, and your date is reserved. Then just sit back, relax and rest assured knowing you and yours will dance the night away. 

So go ahead and give us a holler so you can stop wondering whether or not your party will be a success and instead guarantee you and your friends will let loose, sing at the top of your lungs and dance like no one is watching.

HOW IT ALL CAME TOGETHER

We met in the Bay Area, back at Denon & Doyle- one of the best DJ companies on the West Coast, if not in the country. For years we honed our crafts and earned our 10,000 hours. We DJ’ed, we MC’ed, we danced. We learned the industry.

Finally the time had come to make our own name and continue to develop our own style. When we founded Higher Ground Entertainment we made a vow to ourselves and a commitment to our clients, to bring them the gold standard. We set out on a mission to find the best and brightest personalities, the most skillfully talented DJs, and the most innovative and creative event trends and put them all together to produce something magical for our clients.

 

Far more than just a DJ company, we set out to build a collaborative hub for creatives of all stripes to draw on a litany of genres, styles, and mediums. We set out to build something bigger than us, more valuable than any one individual piece. 

We set out, for higher ground.

EXPERIENCE

10+ years of rocking events and thousands of raving customers to testify.

Preparation

Unlimited planning sessions, endless resources and proactive DJs that never miss a beat. 

STYLE

Raising the bar when it comes to lighting, production and creative entertainment.

Musicality

Talented DJs that can blend your vision, your guest's energy, and their own artistic intuition.

Let's face it, there are many DJs out there and they all, more or less, play the same music. What makes us different? It is the work we put in for our clients. We feel honored to get to work with some of the best people on this planet. This is what drives our obsession to constantly improve and add more value to our clients and industry at large. 

LET'S FACE IT...
