A tropical paradise, Maui is one of the most popular corporate event destinations in the world. Virtually every major hotel on the island hosts numerous events of all sizes year round. For the last 14 years, DJ Boomshot has been one of the most requested and respected DJ’s on the island. Entertainment planners call on DJ Boomshot as they can rely on him to meet and exceed their client’s high expectations.
From award ceremonies in some of the islands grandest ballrooms to outdoor events where guests are barefoot on the beach, make sure your next company event has the right music to leave a lasting impression.
We’ve all been there. You’re at a casual cocktail party trying to have a conversation with a potential mate/client/friend and the music is so loud the person you’re conversing with becomes agitated and the connection is promptly lost, leaving you feeling disappointed and tainting your overall experience.
When planning any type of party, one of the first questions to answer is, what type of atmosphere are you looking to create? Are you wanting guests to dance all night long? Or create an upbeat, yet subtle ambiance to encourage conversation and mingling? Your choice of music can make or break your event.
One of DJ Boomshot’s specialties is working with planners to create successful, memorable events. Whether you’re throwing a birthday party, house party, anniversary, grand opening, gallery opening, employee party or holiday party – give us a call. Music choice matters and DJ Boomshot has the experience, skill and selection to make your next party the best it can be. We love what we do. DJ Boomshot is always the right choice.

EVENT REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS
“DJ Boomshot played a monumental role in making my company party a success. He consulted me on different music formats that he thought would be appropriate for my event and he delivered. Having dj boomshot as our DJ and MC, really made the difference at my event. We could not have pulled it off without him.”
-Joaquine Guerrero ,West Coast Representative, Easy Star Records
“Boomshot has the ability to craft a show and carefully select music and mood. He works in collaboration with others respectfully and reads the pulse of the event. He is on time and up beat. Perfection.”
– Neida Bangerter, Director, Schaefer International Gallery, Maui Arts & Cultural Center
“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
“This DJ service made our event spectacular! We will be using Jay’s DJ service for any and all events we have in the future. If you want to have a fun time with good vibes and a wide variety of music this is who you NEED to hire. Jay used our playlist and mixed in some of his own music. We danced until we all had blisters!!!”
– Caring Hands Maui
“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.
