Philadelphia is a city rich in music, home to a vibrant and well-documented musical heritage stretching back to colonial times. Today, that tradition continues with leading modern vocalists, classical musicians, and a growing, diverse DJ scene.
One of the local DJs that has been leading the pack for years is DJ Perry Angelozzi. Epitomizing the Philadelphia Dance Sound, Perry started spinning records at the age of 12. He landed his first job at the age of 13 at the legendary nightclub the Chez in Atlantic City and has not stopped moving dance floors since.
It wasn’t long before Perry broke ground with 91.7 WPWT as the first DJ to play Dance Music on the radio. He developed into the music director for the station and had a 10-year tenor which impacted the Philadelphia dance scene to this day. With his trademark 54 custom Technic 1200 turntables, Perry has been a staple at the city’s best nightclubs.
Throughout his accomplished career, which includes Philly Happening List wins for three consecutive years as well as a 2015 Best of CBS Philly 2015 award, DJ Perry Angelozzi has entertained thousands – as the Resident DJ at Wells Fargo Center & Harrah’s Atlantic City, as an iHeart Media special events DJ, and even working alongside artists like Calvin Harris at the Q102 Jingle Ball at Wells Fargo Center. He’s worked with some of the biggest names in music including Train, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé and Rihanna. Beyond the turntable, Perry has been producer, writer and mixer in the studio for numerous songs and has organized and directed events and worked with well-known artists including the Black Eyed Peas, Sting, RUN DMC, Kiss, The Beastie Boys and the Sugar Hill Gang.
While it may seem like a DJ with this impressive of a resume would be unattainable for private events, that’s not the case with DJ Perry Angelozzi. His company, DJ Perry Angelozzi Events, has been in operation for over twenty years, performing approximately 260 events and weddings a year in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. While channeling his years of experience, his goal is to focus on the couple and their guests as much as possible. And that customer-first approach has earned DJ Perry Angelozzi rave reviews, event taking home a Best of The Knot award in 2015.
