Introduction: **PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING** Hi! My name is Christina LaRocca a top rated DJ and a musician with over 15 years of experience. You can hire me to DJ or my Premier Band - or …BOTH! **Please be aware that Thumbtack will charge me $30 if you contact me directly thru the app, so serious inquires only please** DJ/MC As a professional full time DJ/MC and musician, I understand how important these events are to you, your family, friends, employees, etc. This is why I make sure the process is seamless from beginning to end with full transparency about what is provided. Now for the fun stuff - I love music. All kinds. I specialize in house, hip hop, 80s, 90s, 00s, R&B, Latin, Pop, Top 40, dance, disco, indie / alternative and more. Whether you want to amp things up and have people dancing all night, or you are looking for a chill, classy vibe, I am the DJ for you.

I mainly DJ for weddings of all kinds in SoCal, including LGBTQ, and for people of all ages and backgrounds, as well as corporate events, birthday parties, and more. LIVE MUSIC Before I started DJing, I was mainly a professionally singer and musician. My band - MODERN HIGHWAY - can perform as a full party band, a 4-piece classic rock / California country band, the Christina & Gene Duo, or you can hire me, Christina LaRocca, or Gene Micofsky, as solo artists.

Christina LaRocca is very clear, precise, answered all of my questions regarding DJ and live music performance. The process form beginning to end was spot on. I never felt un easy or awkward during the process. We were always on the same page, we had a simple but crucial plan for the night, and she didn't disappoint. Her rates are fair, for both DJ and live music. She even added an extra musician to the band at no extra cost, that was very cool. Her singing voice is amazing, super talented. The band also did their job. We had a fantastic, exciting celebration for my daughters 15 birthday party. I would definitely go with her again in the future. Do your research modernhighway.com Thanks Christina, from the bottom of my heart

Details: Birthday party • 150 - 199 guests • 31 - 50 years old • Latin • Banquet hall or ballroom • MC services

Christina was a great DJ at our wedding. She was organized, friendly, and had that extra "oomph" that made her stand out from the rest. During planning she gave us a very straight forward questionnaire on our choices of music, events we'll be having as well as the music accompaniment, for both ceremony and reception. All our guests complimented on the musical choices and had a blast. Christina had a commanding presence as an MC to rile up the crowd for festivities as well as quiet them down for the serious parts and (the best part) get everyone on the floor to dance! Thank you Christina! Mike and Kristy

Details: Wedding • 50 - 99 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Top 40 • Pop • Banquet hall or ballroom • MC services • Lighting • Fog machine

I got married on June 27 of this year. I didn't have much time to plan my wedding, and a month before my wedding, I was still missing my DJ. Luckily I found Christina, and thankfully she was available for my special day. She worked with me and made the process very simple. She did a great job as a DJ and as an MC, taking into consideration that most of my guests are not fluent in English; Christina tried her best to say certain things in Spanish, and honestly, she did great. I recommend her a lot she's very professional and her prices are very affordable.

Details: Wedding • 25 - 49 guests • 31 - 50 years old • 18 - 30 years old • 51 or older • Pop • Latin • Banquet hall or ballroom • MC services • Lighting

Wow I knew Christina was amazing from the first message I received. She was so excited to have the opportunity and she definitely exceeded expectations. She was hired for my moms 40th birthday and I could not stop hearing comments from my guests about how great she was. From her Dj setup, to the way she gets the crowd going , I am looking forward to hiring her many more times in the future. If you want professionalism , great vibes & one less worry for your next event... Hire Her!
