DJ Ronnie Roux
In high school, he always had a liking to play the music at everyone’s house party. Stepping into the club scene as a patron, he quickly made friends with the DJ in every nightclub he went to. Then, the luckiest break ever, a resident DJ at a club he went to was ready to retire. With an offer no 19 year old guy could refuse, he took that DJ job without thinking twice. With no formal training and no clue what to do, Ronnie quickly caught on to the DJ scene. The end result of that lucky break made Ronnie Roux one of the most sought after disc jockeys in New Orleans. He’s played in the top nightclubs New Orleans has to offer. His versatility in music formats keeps him busy on the weekends with nightclubs and corporate event planners. He’s contracted with the two biggest corporate event planners in New Orleans for the busy tourism industry. Currently residing at the biggest nightclub in New Orleans, he plays a video DJ set every Saturday at Metropolitan. Whether it’s hip hop, EDM, top 40 or party rock, he can play it all.
Born and raised in New Orleans. The Dj seed was planted while helping a friend at a house party, and since then he has been hooked ever since then. DJ Wixx quickly landed his first Saturday Night residency at a local hotspot, “Moby’s”. While pursuing a higher education at Southeastern Louisiana University, he landed his second Dj residency. After his four year reign of college, he returned to New Orleans and moved on to spin at local venues across the 504. As the music scene evolved from club to club, so did his music arsenal, spinning anything from Top 40, Hip Hop to Breakbeat, Old School to Mashups and didn’t stop there by adding videos to his set. His ball of fire mixing teamed up with his panoramic audio taste can be seen and heard in New Orleans every weekend at the Metropolitan Night Club.
DJ TAF was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. He was destined to become a DJ from his older brother being a nightclub DJ. Often playing high school proms and kids’ parties turned into a want for more. Upon reaching the legal age to enter a club, he was itching to start his process of learning the nightclub crowd. He took a light guy job at Metropolitan nightclub to begin. Opening and closing shifts soon turned into prime-time DJ shifts for him. Favorite musical genres include hip-hop and EDM. His DJ appearances thus far include TJ Quils, Pub Zero and Metropolitan. With the introduction of videos to the DJ world, he quickly embraced this new technology to be competitive in the DJ market.
