When action sports events and/or the after-party needs the perfect sounds to get the adrenaline flowing, the crowd jumping, and the athletes performing their best, the right music sends the vibe to a whole new level. For skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing, kite boarding, wind surfing, motocross, mountain biking or whatever the action, DJ Boomshot has developed the ability to read a crowd and will mix the best sound to please any taste, genre and era. We arrive on time, perform thorough soundchecks and deliver an experience your attendees will share with friends and talk about long after the event ends.
Watching surfers tool crystalline waves, leaping above the water like acrobats is amazing. Witnessing mountain bikers fly down a trail at breakneck speed maneuvering every twist and turn with ease, balancing precariously, yet effortlessly, on ledges and cliffs, is almost as exhilarating as being on the bike itself. Adding music to the spectator experience takes it to the next level. When it comes to action sports, DJ Boomshot knows what it takes to level up your event.
So if you need music for vibes or if you need it for hype, from punk rock to hip-hop – DJ Boomshot is the best choice to create an experience your guests won’t forget.
“I grew up skateboarding, then got into snowboarding and mountain biking, so I’ve always been in that element of what they now call action sports, and my music collection and live performance reflect that personal connection.” – DJ Boomshot

EVENT REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS
“DJ Boomshot was recommended to us quite a few years back in California and has now become our first choice for a DJ on the Hawaiian islands since he relocated. As a project manager for many of our large-scale Red Bull events, I would highly recommend him to any event organizer anytime anywhere! He is very accessible, easy to work with, flexible, low maintenance and has the perfect selection of music on top of it all!
– Amy Koch, Red Bull, Sports Marketing Manager
“DJ Boomshot is a music mover. DJ boomshot delivers! A reggae connoisseur -in-depth, insightful and knowledgeable. He displays a passionate dedication to reggae par excellence, and having been one of KZFR’s foremost programmers, has always been an asset to the station and to the community.”
-Dirk Wohlau, CEO / President, KZFR Community Radio 90.1 FM
“DJ Boomshot is one of the hardest selectors in California. Over the years he has made great contribution to the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, promotion-wise and artistically. We give Boomshot the highest recommendation.”
-Warren Smith, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival
“DJ Boomshot, Jay Langworthy, is one of those rare few who can both mesmerize a radio audience with just his voice and exquisitely selected songs. and who knows how to keep a sweaty dance club crowd on their feet for hours. Jay’s encyclopedic knowledge of reggae, hip hop, and other music’s, enable him to reach the youth and the old school together. His Collection is one of the best I have encountered, broad and deep where it needs to be. Jay is a most worthy addition to any club, to any radio station, and for concerts and events of all kinds. He has my deepest respect and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

“Simply put, Jay Langworthy from Boomshot International is OUTSTANDING. I am the owner of a Destination Management Company on the big island of Hawaii and we are always looking for new entertainment during our events. I was introduced to Jay four years ago and have used him ever since. His energy with the crowd is unbelievable. I want to provide an event that leaves people talking for years to come and Jay helps me achieve that goal. At every event he has performed at, my guests keep wanting more. Jay is professional and provides personal attention prior to, and during an event. He takes the time to get information about the group and the type of music they enjoy. Once you’re on the dance floor and Jay is playing his vinyls, you’ll never stop dancing. It takes a special person to pull off back to back events with the same energy every time. I would recommend Boomshot International to anyone looking for an outstanding way to begin or end an event.
