It all started in the 90's when DJ Casper heard the sounds of DJ Magic Mike records on radio mixshows and at car shows that he knew DJ'ing was something he had to be a part of. Casper was taught by a family friend the ropes of mixing records, selection, etc and it just kinda grew from there into buying his own gear and records and practicing in the room and making tapes for his friends.
Fast forward some 20 years later and this hobby has become a full time job that has allowed traveling out of town for guest sets, holding down numerous residencies in Tampa, being one of the official DJs for the Tampa Bay Lighting etc and more importantly creating Ol' Dirty Sundays in Tampa that has been running for over 5 Years as of May 2016.
A true party rocker in the sense no genre or era is off limits when DJ Casper is on the set. No room is too big or too small. You never know what to expect; just expect everything to be funky and flipped.
