WHY HIGHER GROUND EVENTS
ARE THE BEST EVENTS. PERIOD.
Some DJs are great at mixing, while others excel in their speaking skills. Some are masters of lighting design, music selection, and presentation while others prefer to focus on personalization, production, or event planning.
At Higher Ground, our focus is to excel at all of the above so that we can provide the gold standard in event entertainment.
We are a passionate and hardworking team of DJs, Event Hosts and dancers all working together towards one common goal: to create incredible entertainment experience & employment opportunities. It's why we got started in this business, and it's what keeps us aiming Higher.

HEAR WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
"I'VE NEVER MET A HARDER WORKING GROUP IN 6+ YEARS OF DOING EVENTS."
"As a wedding and event planner for 20+ years in the high-end market, I look for a DJ that can not only pack a dance floor but do it with professionalism and style. Higher Ground Entertainment does just that."
Barbara Cohen, BLC Events
"Ben from Higher Ground Entertainment was perfect as the headline entertainer for Thermo Fisher Scientific's 2021 Global Commercial Meeting. He virtually entertained our 1,000+ attendees from around the globe prior to, and after our awards ceremony, providing us with good vibes and setting the perfect atmosphere during these strange times when everyone is remote. I'd definitely recommend him for any virtual or corporate event!"
Thermo Fisher Scientific
"Mason was the perfect DJ for our company event. We will definitely be using Higher Ground Entertainment at our next one!"
"I am delighted to recommend Ben’s services to any corporate or private events. Ben not only understands how to connect with a crowd through his charisma, but also understands how to read his audience and adjust accordingly. I have hired him over seven times in a corporate setting for events I hosted with Lululemon Athletica over the course of 3 years. He always came prepared and punctual, and would work hard regardless of the hours. His taste in music is refined, his energy is infectious, and he understands multiple genres.
When people leave any of our events, they don’t remember the food we provided, or the clothing they bought -- they remember the experience that Ben created while fostering wonderful connections."
"I can easily say that Higher Ground Entertainment is the best in the business. They are professional and reliable throughout the entire planning process, so I know my clients are always in good hands. Most importantly, their setup looks clean and their mixes sound fresh! These guys know how to pack a dance floor."
“The event was awesome. Ben was a rock star and we greatly appreciated having him there. We will definitely be using you guys again in the future- our experience was smooth and stress free so thank you.”
