THE STORY BEHIND

HIGHER GROUND

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.

"Ben and Mason were OUTSTANDING!!

The dance floor was electric and everyone had a great time. They were able to read the room perfectly; with the beginning of the dancing including music the older generation enjoyed dancing to, but smoothly transitioned to music more geared to the younger crowd and kept the party going late into the night! The dance floor was so fun that we asked them to stay later than initially planned.

My wife and I are in the stage of our lives where our whole summer has been filled with weddings. Ours was the first of our friend group this year and we continue to hear from our friends how great the DJ was.

Big thanks to Ben & Mason for all their hard work!"
