Based in New York since 2004, Katie has been actively participating in the music community for most of her time living here. As a DJ, she started with a weekly night in Brooklyn, spinning disco and new wave records she found mostly in dollar bins. Since then, she was a regular performer and DJ at the Wierd Records night on the Lower East Side. She continues her work in various projects playing live around the city and abroad. Over the years, she has brought her vast knowledge to help various wedding clients create their most memorable and fun ceremony and reception. Since music is her passion, it’s easy for her to help direct, curate and keep the energy up throughout an entire event. Nothing brings her more joy than creating a successful event, be it a party, show or wedding. When she’s not working on her own music or DJing, she enjoys singing karaoke.
“We loved working with Katie Rose, and every person I interacted with at Stylus was great and totally professional. I started out speaking with Jane, who gave me a sense of all the different DJs who work for her to see who would be a good fit. Katie Rose not only seemed like a good match for our needs, but was also within our budget. The great thing about Stylus is that they have several DJs with different styles and price points, so they can pretty much make anything work on your budget. After having a preliminary call with Katie Rose, I knew we’d get along great. It was great to be able to communicate with her both via email and text, and to have a collaborative Google Sheet where we could bat around and organize ideas. Katie Rose also works using Spotify, and linked us to other weddings that she did, which was really helpful in helping envision our own day. She rolled with some of our weirder requests, and kept the party moving! She might not have the years of experience that some of the more senior Stylus DJs have, but she is a total professional, super nice, and can make your dream wedding happen! I can’t recommend her more highly.” – Denise & Daniel
“Book DJ Katie Rose if you want your wedding to be the best dance party of your life! Katie is thoughtful, creative, easy to work with, responsive to any and all requests and is a true collaborator. After the wedding she also sent us our playlist on Spotify, which is a wonderful gift that we will enjoy forever more. We found Jane Elizabeth and Stylus Events through online research, and then discovered that she plays sets at a local favorite, The Bell House in Brooklyn. Jane then connected us to Katie, who was the perfect fit for our event. Our request was someone who plays songs that you may not have heard in a while, but once they’re on you say, “oh I love this song!” and get out on the dance floor. I get emotional with gratitude when I say that Katie’s music made our wedding reception as wonderful as it was. Thank you DJ Katie Rose and Jane Elizabeth!” -Kylie & Marc
“DJ Katie from Stylus DJ Entertainment dj’d our May 12, 2018 and did an AMAZING job!! She played music that perfectly matched the vibe we were going for our wedding! DJ Katie translated our description of the vibe we wanted and a few songs that we liked into the most amazing wedding playlists that, no exaggerating, were better than anything we were envisioning for our dream wedding. She also made an edit for the father/daughter dance that was really special! She amazingly adapted to day of changes to the schedule/music and expertly navigated dealing with guests requesting music on the “no play” list. Overall, we would absolutely recommend DJ Katie and Stylus DJ Entertainment to anyone looking for great music and wonderful people to work with!” -Kallie & Brennan
“Currently based in NYC with hometown roots in Detroit, Nick and I knew Katie was the perfect fit for our downtown industrial wedding vibes. As a couple, we aren’t too much of music snobs but wanted a different approach to music than the typical offerings of a wedding DJ. Knowing Katie from New York, we asked her to curate a playlist for us but she came through with so much more. After our initial meeting to discuss the run of show and favorite genres, she gave us a playlist to select some new songs from that would incorporate into our wedding day mix. Having chosen two non-traditional locations in Detroit for the ceremony and reception, Katie made sure to attend our rehearsal and speak with our coordinators to ensure all would run smoothly. With the challenge of having the ceremony off site from the reception, Katie handled both venues flawlessly to ensure the tunes were flowing from the pre-ceremony welcome to our final exit. Katie brought so much more life into our wedding with her vast knowledge and depth of musical greats.” -Michelle
