I am DJ BAM


Born Marcus Bunch and raised in Jersey City NJ. I always had a love for music, it started at a young age I remember using my mothers cassette player and some old cassette tapes to make my own mixtapes , recording from the radio when some of my favorite dj’s were mixing live.  

Growing up, one day I went to west side park in Newark NJ for a cookout. I saw a dj playing live watching him mix, and hearing the Host / MC on the mic seeing how the crowd respond to them I knew right then i had what it took,and I wanted to become a DJ.

I remember begging my pops to buy me turntable so we went to electronics in journal square and that’s where it all begin. I got my first pair of turntables the Gemini sa-600.
I set up in my parents basement where I spent countless days and nights self teaching by working on craft of mixing, blending, & scratching.

As I learn to perfect my craft I ran into another young fella DJ Midnight who was also a young dj learning his way and how to perfect his craft as well and we became a team.

In the beginning I was dj bam-bam but as I begin playing more school event and really making a name for myself I dropped the bam-bam and became DJ Bam. 

Once conquering becoming the dj I dreamed of being , I set out to become more. I got tired of sitting around waiting for different promoters to book me for event ,I said to myself how dope it would be to not only be the dj but be the promoter also 

Being blessed with many opportunities to show my talent I have played for some of the hottest venues such as BET 106& PARK, NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND IN NYC also for NIKE JUMP MAN 23 campaign. I’ve traveling across the county to DJ from The Dominican Republic to Canada.Then on August 21,2015 a guy by the name of Damel who runs a Dj crew called " XSQUADDJS hit me up on instagram & welcome me as the newest member. I begin building my foundation and planting roots. I settle in local gentleman’s club known as Wiggles.  

Wiggles was known to some as a small whole in the wall strip club, but to me it was home. Being embraced by so many and creating a following I begin my hashtags and that is we’re “The one man show”and “Ladies love Bam”was born.
 
4 years later here I am, a successful DJ & party promoter being book around the world and  currently a radio personnel for WZYE 95.9FM NonFiction Radio. Fridays 6pm-8pm and Saturdays 4pm-6pm. I also started a record label called DGHD to think it all started in my parents basement. 

When asked what makes me different from any other dj, I smile and say I am the one man show. My energy can create a vibe that anyone from any walk of life can feel. I can adapt to any genre establish a atmosphere of fun, comfort and excitement. 

My goal as a DJ is to be successful in every aspect of the word, I wanna be a legend and leave my mark as DJ BAM
