Hi, I'm Joe a.k.a. DJ Underdog.  For the past 12 years I've worked tirelessly to make a name for myself in the city I love. I'm a lifelong resident of Pittsburgh, by way of Bon Air.  I became a DJ because I love music.  My knowledge of music from every era allows me to be comfortable playing in front of any audience. In the past I've held residencies at several bars and clubs in the Pittsburgh area including Bar Louie Station Square, Finn McCools, Whim Night Club, and S Bar. In addition to the residencies, I've been a go-to substitute at many major bars and clubs in the Pittsburgh area such as Claddagh and Jimmy D's and I've also had the privilege of playing in other states including Maryland, Virginia and Oregon.

In addition to my experience in the bar and club scene, I've also been named Best in Weddings for 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 by TheKnot.com.  These awards earned me a spot in their Hall of Fame.  I've also been recognized as a 2013, 2014, and 2015 selection for Wedding Wire’s Couple’s Choice Award.  My expertise and professionalism has also led me to be contracted by institutions and companies such as the University of Pittsburgh, Best Buy, rue21, Victoria’s Secret, and White House Black Market.  Hard work has allowed me to share my creative style of DJing with many people, and I hope to continue to do so for years to come.
