DJ Addam definitely takes the award for the person I have known the longest before getting him onto the show. I met him way back when I was running Phoenix Games and he was a DJ for the Haven Goth club which I was a regular at.
In this podcast we have spoken with quite a few people who are very successful financially, but DJ Addam has been successful along another axis.
DJ Addam has had a tremendously diverse career. He has performed for the Muppet masters of Jim Henson Productions, the Phantom of the Opera cast at the Wang Center, for the Witches of Salem on Halloween and Alex Grey at CoSM. He's dj'ed in-boutique events with Kat Von D at Sephora in Times Sq, on Newbury St for Puma's Marathon Monday, on Fashion's Night Out for Steve Madden's flagship store & with Clinton Kelly for Macy's Herald Sq.
In his first 5 years as a professional dj (1995 - 2000), Addam performed at over 1000 mobile and nightclub events, and was recognized as "DJ of the year" at Premier Talent Group. He is also known for his work as an underground club dj, remixer, and music producer. His clients have included MIT, Harvard Law, Hasty Pudding Club, EnerNOC, and Millennium Pharmaceuticals, and fashion brands including Calvin Klein, LOFT, Guess, GQ and H&M. He has trained dozens of successful djs, helped hundreds of happy couples, and headlined at world class venues and clubs across the US, on cruise lines and internationally.
