Ari the DJ is a 27 year old female DJ originally from Dallas, Texas. What started off in 2015 as a hobby to make extra money to finish college turned into a full-time passionate career. After graduating from Prairie View A&M University in 2017, Ari took her talents to Houston, Texas where she would soon earn her title as one of the hottest DJs in Texas. Not only is she a DJ but she is also an Event Curator, Influencer, and Youtuber...curating some of the hottest events in Texas and expanding her brand to major cities like Atlanta, Miami, LA, New York, and more. Touring, doing shows with familiar names, DJ’ing for major festivals, and being featured as a guest DJ on 9.79 The Box... Ari has climbed a major ladder of success and still isn’t finished climbing just yet. She also earned her first Gold Plaque for Megan Thee Stallion's “Big Ole Freak” record. She has a proven track record to be quite the vibe selector no matter what platform she’s placed upon... she just might be your favorite DJ's, favorite DJ.
