What Our Student DJs Are Saying

Angelo The Kiid

For the last 9 months being around Gary, Cream, and Brandon I’ve learned so much when it comes to marketing and presenting value as a DJ. They’ve also taught me the best ways of getting my foot in the door with venues. You do not want to miss out on a course like this with the amount of knowledge coming from these 3 people. 10 years into 3 months sounds like an easy deal for me.

JD Stein

I came across an opportunity that I felt was too difficult to pass up. Not because I'm looking to cut corners or looking for a hand out but because I know that it's about working smarter, not harder. When I first met Cream, I knew he was going to change the game and do something special, and I truly believe he is creating that with Get Down DJs and now with Get Down University. I'm excited and looking forward to taking my business to the next level.

Chris Camp

I’ve found everything valuable so far, especially the marketing material. I’ve already been booked at a new venue with the possibility of a residency. I’ve been throwing boat parties this entire summer that have gone over really well, and this weekend I’m going to apply a lot of marketing material to build up an omnipresence for that party as well as my private events pages. Thank you guys for everything.
