DJ PJ Carmack
PJ has surrounded himself with music for his entire life. As the youngest of four boys, he came to love just about every genre of music. He took his passion for music with him to college at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, where he studied audio engineering and music technologies. While enrolled, he worked as a DJ at the university station and performed at campus bars and clubs until he graduated in 2011.
After college, PJ continued to produce and record his own music. He began releasing music, mashups, and remixes online, some of which were featured on major music blogs such as Barstool Beats and Hype Machine. He always thought that becoming a professional DJ would be in his future, and after moving to Ohio he finally made that dream a reality.
PJ’s vast musical upbringing allows him to provide something for everyone at your event. He believes there is nothing better than connecting with as many people as possible through music. PJ brings a unique, upbeat, and professional expertise that will keep you and your guests happy for the entirety of your event.
DJ PJ Knows What’s Up!
DJ PJ was the perfect fit for our wedding! From start to finish, he understood our music taste and really created the perfect playlist. Day of our wedding, he made sure to check in with us before the ceremony to see if we needed anything. He even helped cue me, the bride, on when to walk down the aisle since we were wrapping around a building. DJ PJ paid close attention to each detail and made sure to read our last name and bridal party’s names correctly when we were announced. With the number of compliments we got from our friends and family about how the reception went too, we’ll definitely be recommending him to everyone for their future events! I could not ask for a better DJ for our wedding!

PJ was flawless! Went above and beyond.
DJ PJ did an outstanding job from the start. We met when we first hired him and again a few days before the wedding. We were a little picky and also requested songs from our invitees, so I’m sure we were a bit of a pain, but PJ was extremely accommodating and assured us it was going to work out great, and it did. He rolled with any last minute decisions, corralled the wedding party for announcements, made all the right announcements, and most importantly he kept the dance floor full all night with the perfect playlist. I would highly recommend PJ to anyone. He also made an awesome video after the fact that consisted of pictures and videos throughout the night, including shots of our setup which he did before anyone even got there. Above and beyond. And thank you to Eric Smith for pairing us with PJ!!Conor & Cameron StandishNov 9, 2019Ariel Pearl Center
Best day ever!
DJ PJ was hands down incredibly to work with! We met with PJ prior to our wedding and he listened to all of our needs. PJ was so down to earth and attentive the day of our wedding. The music was amazing and the dance floor was full all night! PJ went above and beyond and made our day so perfect! Highly recommend.Brandon and Alexandra SharpSep 21, 2019LaCentre
He rocked the house!
DJ PJ is the man! I don’t think at any point during our wedding the dance floor was empty. With the being said, he played a great variety of music that got all of our guests dancing. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the DJ was.
He was super easy to work with and there for us every step of the way. He even came by on the Friday before our wedding took place to chat with us and production at the House of Blues. He went above and beyond for us. I would HIGHLY recommend DJ PJ!!Chelsea RinglerJul 27, 2019House of Blues
CMG was so helpful and quick to respond every step of the way while planning the music for our wedding reception. The result was to work with two phenomenal professionals, John Toula and his Jazz Trio, who played during our cocktail hour which set the mood for the rest of the evening, and DJ PJ, who kept everyone dancing the entire night. My guests came up to me declaring “I’ve never been to a wedding where the weird people were the ones who WEREN’T dancing.” The floor was packed, the whole time, I’ve never seen anything like it, and I’m ecstatic! Thank you everyone for making our wedding such a hit!Allison WisniewskiJun 22, 2019Severance Hall
PJ is the best!
When the DJ we had planned to book for our wedding fell through, we weren’t sure what we were going to do and didn’t have a lot of time to figure it out. We found DJ PJ and he was an absolute savior. We wanted to book a DJ who was the same age as us and was willing to work with us to play the music we wanted, and not the same generic “crowd pleasers” you hear at every wedding. PJ worked very hard to make sure we got everything right and was more than willing to fulfill very specific song requests for different parts of the night. He also was able to deal with the very difficult acoustics that come from having your wedding in a giant marble room like Ariel Pearl Center. We couldn’t recommend him enough!Dave and Jacqui EdwardsMar 30, 2019Ariel Pearl Center
DJ PJ Carmack was personable but never got in the way. He played what we wanted him to play and the dance floor never stopped until midnight.Dee Ann Seipel / Will & Summer AndrewsAug 11, 2018Vosh/Georgetown
Loved the music that DJ PJ played and kept the party going. Captured our style of preferred music throughout the entire reception.Jillian and Darren ZavarellaJun 30, 2018Ariel Pearl Center
