Romin Zandi (better known as DJ Romin) began his DJ career during his junior year of high school in 2011. Even as a young child he realized the strong power that music has over people and their moods, and Romin wanted to be a part of helping people have a great time! He was finally able to make that dream come true when he convinced a local club owner to let him practice on their equipment after hours.
Romin quickly realized though that beiing a DJ is not as easy as it looks and it takes a lot of practice and skill to be able to connect with crowds and develop relationships with them without ever speaking a word. Determined to accomplish his goal and become a master DJ he kept practicing, and it wasn’t long before the local club owner provided him with a DJ residency because of how quickly Romin had progressed and fine tuned his DJing skills. Romin’s career was finally starting to fall in place.
It was not long before the word got out about Romin and his schedule began filling up with various private events including weddings, corporate events, school events, and birthday parties, as well as numerous clubs offering him a residency. One of the reasons he has become so popular is his ingenious ability to be creative and mix genres that most DJs are afraid to try combining; his systematization of this is what sets him apart. Romin is without a doubt an uptempo DJ and focuses mostly on Hip Hop, House, Club, Electronic, and Latin music, but as mentioned previously he has become deft in reaching far beyond those genres on a daily basis.
Romin is incredibly motivated and energetic, and loves working with people and music; he has now become a master of knowing how to get a crowd deeply engaged. For his selfless demeanor though, it is all about the crowd having a good time and isn’t simply about Romin enjoying himself. Because of his hard work and motivation, Romin has made a career out of doing what he does best and loves! From day to day he can be found anywhere from a private events to various bars/clubs/lounges in the Washington, D.C. area where he holds various residencies.
As of right now Romin’s current goals are
to expand his reach and audience to a global level and begin traveling and performing all over the world. Being well known in the Washington, DC area is a great first start, but becoming an international club DJ sounds more up his alley.
When asked how he would sum up in one sentence being a DJ, Romin said: “My goal as a DJ is to translate my crowds’ focus in the present moment, where they can create lasting memories!”
Hiring DJ Romin as our wedding DJ was one of the best decisions we made. DJ Romin acted like a second wedding planner for us and helped me really kick off all of my wedding planning at our 1st meeting. He asked all of the best questions, gave us an organized to-do list, and gave us suggestions and recommendations based on our wedding and venue. By giving us the above tasks & asking the above questions, we had one of the most well organized, and well run weddings I had ever been to. Romin kept our wedding reception on time, up-beat and kept everyone dancing all night. We specifically didn’t want your typical cheesy wedding DJ and Romin was the absolute best. No cheesy jokes, amazing music… I could go on. He was very responsive during the planning process and flexible with me changing my mind 24/7. Romin provided up lighting and it looked amazing at our venue (Shadowcreek). We are so thankful to Romin for helping create a lifetime of memories and for keeping everyone at our wedding dancing all night!
Christa & Nick 10/22 Wedding
DJ Romin is a true professional. He brought a sense of order to both our wedding preparation and day-of coordination. He helped us develop a timeline and structure for the ceremony and reception, with distinct playlists for each. Set aside for a moment his musical talents – though they are fantastic. Romin is a consultant of the highest caliber. He brings a natural enthusiasm and ability to work with people of all kinds. Book him for your wedding.
Stephanie & Sedale 10/1 Wedding
I cannot recommend Romin highly enough. The first thing that sticks out about Romin is his professionalism. He understands that his job is to give you the wedding experience you and your fiancee want. In doing so, he comes to your planning meeting extremely prepared and walks you through each phase of the wedding step-by-step — making a seemingly daunting task easily manageable. He is also extremely responsive to any last minute changes. His performance at our reception was fantastic as us and our guests danced the night away. It never felt like there was a lull in the set.
If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding, you won’t do better than Romin.
Alex & Katie September wedding
If you are newly engaged, run don’t walk to book DJ Romin for your wedding! He DJed my sister’s wedding last year, and literally the day after I got engaged, he was the first vendor I contacted for our wedding. Romin is highly responsive, friendly, and detail-oriented and does an incredible job of DJing and running your whole reception. He spent a ton of time with us prior to the big day making sure to handle our every need. He played all of our favorite songs and our dance floor was LIT until the very last song. Our wedding guests still have not stopped talking about how much fun our reception was, in huge part thanks to Romin and his team. If you want someone highly organized with a great personality and incredible DJ skills (for a super reasonable price), he’s your man. Thank you again, Romin!
