Learning to DJ in the clubs in front of a live audience, Vodkatrina has been packing dance floors for over 9 years. Her mixes are a fun variety of club, 90's jock jams, Motown, pop, mash-ups, and crazy surprises all over. Resident DJ at Nellie’s in DC and the Ottobar in Baltimore, she’s also had regular gigs at Grand Central in Baltimore, Cobalt in DC, and has played at many spots between the 2 cities. Oh yeah, and she really likes vodka.
As a Fairfax, Virginia native, Tezrah learned to play classical piano at age five, which laid the foundation for her future investigation into computer music programs. Before pursuing a professional career in the music industry, Tezrah graduated with a pre-medical degree in Neuroscience from William & Mary, attended the Harvard School of Design Summer Program, and was accepted into the Graduate Architecture Program at Catholic University. She also played semi-pro soccer before her full immersion into the DJ profession.
As an award-winning DJ, Tezrah reigns in her fifth year of DJing in the Washington DC area, specializing in Top 40, electronic dance music, Hip Hop, and other genres. She is hailed as one of DC's and the LGBTQ community's brightest stars. Her sound is eclectic, combining the newest music seamlessly with older classic songs. Winner of the DJ Battle for Her HRC for 2014 and 2015, headliner at the 9:30 Club, headliner for a 5,000+ crowd at Hampton Roads Pride 2016, voted Best DJ by the Washington Blade in 2017 and 2018, and making her Echostage debut in 2018, she has garnered a solid following from all over the region.
