Since 1982, the team at Bristol Sounds Deejays has provided thrilling party entertainment for guests throughout DC, Northern Virginia, Maryland and surrounding areas. Our DJ services are the highlight of any personal, retail, or corporate function.
Back in 1975, bands dominated the entertainment scene. Bobby Bristol, then known as “Greg Matthews,” was a young high school-aged DJ working at WINX Radio in Rockville, Maryland. One of his most enjoyable duties at the station was acting as the emcee and announcer for the station’s WINX Wobbler basketball team.
The action-packed games were usually followed by “sock-hops,” hosted by Bobby. The word soon spread and those fun-filled sock-hops led to bowling banquets and holiday parties, which in turn lead to pool parties and wedding receptions.
After high school, Bobby attended college at the University of Maryland, and joined an association with the Washington area’s first deejay company, Sounds Dynamic. Bobby happily entertained at dance marathons, Greek Weeks, and orientation events on campus. He also holds the distinction of being the original DJ at College Park’s famous hangout, “The Vous.” As the end of college approached, Bobby had to decide whether to continue with the growing DJ business or find another line of work. In September of 1982, Bobby formed Bristol Sounds Deejays with a fellow University of Maryland alum.
The business grew quickly. It wasn’t long before Bristol Sounds Deejays was known at high schools and colleges up and down the East Coast. Party planners took notice as well and Bristol Sounds Deejays was playing at events all over the Washington and Baltimore areas.
Since 1988, some things have changed—Bobby bought out his partner and moved the offices to Howard County, Maryland. This location allows Bristol Sounds Deejays to serve customers from Baltimore to Northern Virginia. Some of the same DJs associated with Bristol Sounds Deejays at the beginning are still working with us today. Bobby’s son, Michael is keeping the family tradition alive. He is one of our top DJ's and helps manage the business.
