About the DJ

Dj Snkr JOe

Snkr Joe is well known for his contributions as a pioneer in the online sneaker community and as a founder of one of the best all-vinyl, all-45 parties, Mobile Mondays. His passion for DJing dates back to 1992 when he studied the art of mixing records. What started out as a hobby is now a full-time profession as an open-format DJ playing at New York City’s hottest speakeasies, hotels, lounges, restaurants, and bars, such as Nothing Really Matters, Not A Speakeasy, The UES (Ice-Cream Shoppe speakeasy), The Back Room, Mr. Purple (Hotel Indigo), Nina’s x Liquid Lab (NoMo SoHo hotel), and Buddha-Bar Restaurant.

“Setting the vibe for a room that makes people smile, dance, and laugh is rewarding to me. All of these reactions tell me that I have done my job.”
