Graeme was born and raised in Toronto and has always lived here. After years of building a big record collection, Graeme got into DJing on vinyl and digital. Graeme has always loved music and plays drums guitar ukelele, and even signs. His DJing began as a filler between sets with his band. He has always loved music and setting a great atmosphere for the crowd.

A Toronto native, and a self proclaimed “walking karaoke machine” Jacquie has an extensive love of music of all kinds, and a warm personality that you can’t help but love! Just ask DJ her hubby, DJ Liam!
Jacquie is a U of T alumni and also spent some time on the east coast attending Halifax’s University of Kings College. She has been a big part of our team for a number of years now and is often the face you’ll meet at bridal shows and other wedding open house events in Toronto.
Riley is originally from the small farming community of Binbrook, and now lives in Ancaster, outside Hamilton. Riley has always loved music and got into DJing because of the energy it brings to an individual, a small group, and even a big crowd, and has been doing it for 20 years now!
Riley is always reviewed well for his skills at reading a room and knowing exactly what songs will keep the dance floor packed.

Anime is a Toronto kid through and through. She was born in the city and has lived here her whole life.
Anime was drawn to DJ through a pure love of music and people.
She is always reviewed well for her friendly personality, her ability to read the crowd and play the right songs to keep the dance floor full.
Roman has a long DJ resume that includes club residencies, resorts, beach parties, and even the Sundance Film Festival in Utah in 2015!
Roman was born in Moscow, and speaks fluent Russian. He moved to Ottawa at 13 where he lived for 15 years before moving to Toronto in 2006.
With 20 years of experience across many styles of music, it’s no wonder why everyone talks about how busy the dance floor is when Roman is behind the table!
Dylan got into the DJ scene in 1996. Influenced by the explosion of electronic music, hip hop, and reggae. Working in the AV industry full time his technical skills are high.
Dylan grew up in Toronto and went to university in Guelph for Sociology. He loves to travel and has lived on the Gold Coast of Australia.
I am so glad that Dylan has found a home with Maximum Music for his mobile DJ work. His enthusiasm and willingness to take on some of our more technical weddings and being a turntablist make him a huge asset.
When Dylan isn’t DJing, you will find him enjoying all sorts of comedy, building and spinning his collection of vinyl and posting Larry the Cat videos.
Dylan spins drum and bass on vinyl for fun, listen to a few sets:
Turntablism – the art of manipulating sounds and creating new music, sound effects, mixes and other creative sounds and beats, typically by using two or more turntables and a cross fader-equipped DJ mixer.

Lee comes from a musical family and has an uncle, and brother who both DJ as well!
He has been a DJ since the early 2000’s including some time spent in the Bahamas with Club Med!
Lee is well reviewed and is always commented on his ability to energize a room and set a great atmosphere!

Johnny is perhaps the most interesting man in the world. DJ, artist, traveller, businessman, performer are just a few of his many expressions.
He is a chameleon that has the right music for every occasion and the perfect level of engagement to the guests. He self describes his wedding approach as quiet, reserved, soft and helpful. Johnny has a great personality and is smooth on the mic applying the less is more philosophy to keep the spotlight on the couple.
Johnny puts effort into sequencing songs and this effort shines through in his work and ultimately in his amazing book of references.
For fun Johnny can be found spinning tunes in non-traditional industrial spaces, private lofts and DIY venues where he can really let his music personality come through.
Johnny will be married in May 2017 and he understands the importance of the DJ role in a successful and memorable wedding celebration.
Check out his personal style:

Dana grew up in the Beaches and lives in Mississauga with his wife Kelly. He started off in school radio as DJ for Malvern Collegiate Institute. Dana progressed to school dances where he DJ between bands including Triumph and The Police!
He loves collecting, and listening to vintage vinyl in his spare time and find time in the winter to travel to the Caribbean now that the kids are grown up.
Dana is an excellent MC with a great voice and his music knowledge is current and outstanding! The venues LOVE him so much that he and Kelly are guests for the summer staff party at Toronto Hunt Club.
I trust Dana completely with weddings at the Luxury and Luxury + level of service from Maximum Music.

As a lifelong musician, singer-songwriter and guitarist, Liam started DJ’ing over 10 years ago. He got his start in high school, producing a jazz and blues show on EHRP, his high school radio station. He was recruited by a fellow DJ, from the world of music when their bands happened to release new albums at the same time.
Liam was born and raised in Toronto, and has also lived in Providence, R.I., and Mons, Belgium.
He spends most of his spare time traveling, and digging into the Ontario craft beer scene, and was married to his wife Jacquie in June 2016! With a Maximum Music DJ of course!

JB got into DJ work in 2002 after being commissioned by some friends due to his reputation as a life long music junkie! He was born and raised in Montreal before moving to Toronto to study Journalism at George Brown.
JB has a huge DJ resume from a 5 year residency to high end clothing stores, corporate parties and of course a lot of weddings.
His style is more laid back on the mic and he lets the music do the talking. JB loves choosing the right songs for the moment and dropping a seamless mix and is technically a very competent DJ.
When JB isn’t behind the DJ table you’ll find him working on writing projects, playing drums and listening to music!

Natalie is from Edmonton, and has passed through Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Diego as well as a semester in Lviv, Ukraine! She loves to read, write, act, and anything to do with film so working at TIFF is a perfect fit.
Natalie started with Maximum Music in early 2014. She loves nothing more than seeing a packed dance floor, and admittedly can’t help but dance behind the DJ table.
Strong people skills and an excellent MC, Natalie loves the energy of a wedding and being a part of such an important milestone for a couple. Her enthusiasm, natural laugh and ability to connect with people make her a natural working with us at bridal shows. I am so proud to have her on our team!

Nigel came on board with Maximum Music in 2011 through the introduction of a mutual friend and likes to DJ 2 or 3 times a month during wedding season.
He has always called Mississauga home graduating from Clarkson Secondary in the class of 1994. Nigel enjoys Craft beer, playing live music, riding his motorcycle, and traveling whenever possible!
Nigel’s DJ work is well reviewed for his friendly nature, cool competence, people skills and diverse music knowledge.
Nigel is engaged to Ana and they are having a destination wedding in 2017.
Check out his live music:
Find, buy, and read the book “Ten Needles.” Sobering and heart warming, it will make you feel like a human being again. It’s the kind of book that puts things in perspective in this self-centering world we live in.
