DJ José Ray


That's right, in addition to painting walls and filling up sketchbooks left and right- I also spend a lot of my time DJing. 

I would like to think, and hopefully the testimonials will prove, that I'm not your standard DJ. Having a background as a musician and collecting records since the early 90s- I take pride in understanding and appreciating music from a wide spectrum of tastes and influences. 

The main thread through my choices as a DJ is the music has to have Soul and a Groove. If that's there then I can weave all kinds of music from all over the world together. Some of my favorite genres to spin are Funk, Soul, 80s electro pop, 90s R&B, Early Hip Hop, Indie Dance, Latin (especially Cumbia!), AfroBeat, - but I also enjoy all kinds of other stuff like Classic Punk, Golden Era Rock & Roll, 70s Rock, 80s Metal, and the list goes on and on, but I think you get the picture.  

This is a trailer for the Bootlegger's Boogie event that I helped produce and DJ. 

The first person I think of when I am planning a party is José Ray. His positive and happy vibe elevates any soirée. He has a great ability to read the guest and play exactly the right music at the right time!

With a deep library, killer taste, and the ability to read the crowd, Jose has the rare talent to keep people moving non-stop out on the floor. Add that to the fact that he’s a dream to work with and he’s hands down the best DJ you’re going to find for your event!
— Josh Yates, Owner of Green Truck Pub
DJ Jose Ray is a timeless classic. He can cater to almost any crowd with his old-school style 33 LP vinyls and turntable or his modern digital mix. His personality is one that is not too-overbearing to take away from the event at hand, but he’s also good at bringing folks out on the dance floor and interacting with the crowd. DJ Jose Ray is your perfect house party, fundraiser, or dance party deejay. I recommend him hands down over anyone else in Savannah.
— Jamie Smith Arkins, Director at Ogeechee Riverkeeper
From public fundraisers and street festivals with a large audience to a raging living room dance party, DJ Ray will keep your guests entertained and on their feet. His good cheer and enthusiasm make the party. Plus he is a reliable professional who arrives early and stays late to ensure your event runs smoothly. I happily refer friends and colleagues to DJ Ray without hesitation.
— Whitney Shephard, Programs Chair at Metro Savannah Rotary
Jose is the only go-to DJ for events in my world. He’s extremely reliable, very accommodating, fun to be around, and has a knack for spinning just the right discs for each occasion. He’s the guy you want to book first, before the date, venue or caterer.
— Brett Bell, Director at City of Savannah Public Information Office
I was totally against the idea of a DJ for my wedding until I found Jose! I knew he’d have everyone dancing all night, and he did not disappoint! On top of that, he’s a super nice guy and was happy to accommodate my special requests. I’m looking for an excuse to hire him again.
