DJ AmRo (Amani Roberts) is a Washington, DC born and bred DJ who has been in California since 2007. A student of music since learning the saxophone at a very young age, DJ AmRo’s musical knowledge spans numerous decades and crosses multiple genres.
In April of 2008, Amani started an online radio show called Mirth Nadir. The focus of the show was listener dedications and interviewing indie and mainstream artists such as Melanie Fiona, Raheem Devaughn, Charlene Lite and Donnell Jones. The successful creation of this show further cemented Amani’s decision to DJ at a variety of events and venues throughout the world (notably Washington DC, Las Vegas, and in Cuiaba, Brazil during the 2014 World Cup).
Amani is also an official Clif Bar DJ and continues to partner with this brand on numerous marathons and bicycle races across the west coast of United States. In June of 2013, DJ AmRo graduated from the internationally renowned Scratch Academy DJ school. This intense year-long program (which is the equivalent to DJ College) has elevated the skill set of Amani in an immense way. In April of 2015, DJ AmRo graduated a second time from Scratch Academy DJ School. The focus of his studies this second time was Music Production.
DJ AmRo mixes classic Old School, Hip Hop, House, and Latin classics with all of the latest Top 40 hits and ensures that the crowd is moving at all times. The Jazz upbringing has proven invaluable as the historical knowledge allows him to find the right vibe for any party. A few of Amani’s favorite artists include Stevie Wonder, Eric B & Rakim, Meshell Ndegeocello, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Prince, Mariah Carey and Teena Marie.
DJ AmRo currently lives in Los Angeles, California and has residencies on various nights in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Venice, Hermosa Beach and Culver City.
