Meet Shannon Brown of DJ Vicious Lee in West LA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shannon Brown.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I began my career at Fairfax High school djaying all the events for the Cheer leaders. Once out of school I was able to Dj events with friends at other schools. Which lead to djaying one off parties with promoters doing shows with artist such as Young Mc, Paper Boy, and Dr Dre. That lead djaying on the Radio (92.3 the Beat).

Then to popular clubs such as Glam Slam (owned by The Late Prince) And the World famous comedy store on Sunset. I djayed for Tone’ Loc. Worked with Ice cube and Tupac doing scratching on a few songs that Lay Law from NWA produced. After touring with a Group called the Unwrapped All-stars (Hidden Beach records and recordings Unwrapped Vol 1-3 ) I began to Dj a small club in Santa Monica called Harvelles where I met part owner of a production company called 1540 productions. They began me on a path that went from djaying Sony movie studios premier parties for a countless amount of movies. Sony Studios annual holiday parties and also Disney and Warner Bros events as well. I was referred to Staples Center which led to official Grammy Parties for the CEO A.E.G. Tim Leiweke 2009-2013. And in that time I also djayed for LA KINGS first Stanley cup Championship and The LA galaxies two MLS championship.

Also during that time I also appeared on the Aresnio Hall show as a dj guest with the band. There a lot more but it all started from simple house parties and mobile dj jobs and word of mouth to the right people.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Surely I had some ups and downs. Business would get slow, or I would be on the road so much once I got back home all my regular work was taken by other Dj’s and I would have to reestablish my footing in my home market. Sometimes the work was just enough to get by without having a 9-5 job. But some way somehow my family and I were able to survive on my dj career alone.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about DJ Vicious Lee – what should we know?
I’m primarily a mobile dj that can do it all. Weddings, cooperate events, small and large shows, Mitsva’s… You name it I can do it. My specialty is bringing a high level of fun and musical enjoyment to any type of event I’m hired to do. There’s a lot of moments in my career that I’m proud of the ones that stick out are The Sony Studios events , Arsenal hall show appearance , and djaying a concert for Tone’ Loc in front of 40,000 people ..
What sets me apart from other Dj’s is I put myself in the place of who I play for… And make sure by all means necessary I make my clients Happy.
