Corporate & Special Events

Music for special events takes technical skill, timing, and the ability to work with a team.  With over 20 years of festival, corporate, and nonprofit experience, Professor Ping acts as DJ + MC to keep the crowd engaged while keeping the focus on the action at center stage.

Select Clients:  Robert Lange StudioTedXCharleston Museum, USFirst Robotics Competition, Pecha Kucha, DigSouth, Charleston Wine + Food Festival

Kids + Teens

Kids love music – but sometimes, the music they love isn’t for everyone. That’s why Professor Ping has developed his approach to music for school events, church parties, proms, birthdays, and sweet sixteens to be age appropriate, profanity-free, and fun for everyone who comes out to party.

Kid-Friendly Events:  Stiles Point Fall Festival, Grace Church EYC Lock-In, James Island Soccerween


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Josh was awesome. Admittedly my wife and I are particular about our music taste and wanted the experience to mirror us and our favorite music. Josh was easy to work with and absolutely delivered. The entire weekend was amazing, but everyone couldn’t stop talking about our DJ and how awesome the music was.

We have used Professor Ping for DJ services over the last seven years, and from small groups to larger crowds, he can do it all.  I can’t say enough good things about him.  He really knows how to read a crowd, control the tempo, and before you know it, you’re dancing!  Hire him – you won’t be disappointed.

Professor Ping always brings the fire! He knows how to get a room up on their feet. He always seems to pluck the perfect song out of thin air.

From intimate gatherings to venues fill with 900 plus people, Professor Ping always impresses.

…and Josh is just amazing!  I had a very last minute change in the music (sorry) and he worked with me to make sure the lineup was just as I imagined.  Josh also partnered well with my saxophonist to ensure I had the processional of my dreams.  And he was just incredibly friendly and a pleasure to be around.
