Attending lavish affairs, staying in top-notch hotels and traveling the country are just a few of the perks of being a deejay. Watching celebs groove to your beats isn’t bad either!
Such is the life for DJ Graham Funke and DJ StoneRokk, who are currently touring the country to promote their mixed album CD, Trabajo. The pair, who are based in L.A., already have an impressive clientele roster. StoneRokk laughs when recalling a party he played for George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.
"This woman says to me…Mr. Pitt is really reserved and he doesn’t like this music, or that music," he says. "Toward the end of the night, I see Brad standing on a couch singing, and I’m like, ‘he’s really not that reserved, he’s whilin’ out.’ This is pre-children and pre-Angelina of course."
Funke recalls playing for Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman’s baby shower, where he says, "Both of them liked early ’90s hip hop."
When they’re not spinning for the stars, these busy d.j.s are usually on a plane, travelling to their next gig. All the moving around can get tiring, so when it’s time to chill out, Funke and StoneRokk say they like to curl up with–you guessed it–a copy of OK!
“We’re pretty much in a different city every night of the week", Funke tells OK!. "We’re constantly catching the early flight, trying to maximize our time in each place."
