We’ve done it all – from rocking thousands at the largest outdoor music festivals to intimate affairs at the neighborhood pub. And we approach every event with the same goal – create an experience guests will never forget.
We’ve spent countless hours digging through record stores, and now into the digital realm, curating an impressive collection to fit nearly every genre, mood or style. From Hip-Hop classics & current, Reggae & Moombahton, House, Drum & Bass & Breakbeat, to all things Funky, or crunchy Global Grooves, DJ Boomshot can deal aces from just about any deck.
DJs have become an integral part of most concerts and festivals with fans just as interested in seeing and hearing them perform as they are the headlining bands! DJ Boomshot has performed at hundreds of concerts and festivals over the last two decades, sharing stages and billing with just about every major currently touring reggae artist, numerous hip-hop & R&B acts, turntablist showcases, and more. – DJ Boomshot has it under full control.
REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS
“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.”

“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
“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.
