About DJs Unite
DJs Unite originally started with a group of fellow DJs getting together to do something they love, making people smile through music. Founder Chris Sneed, along with Joe Rutzler, Chuck Gookins and John Meyer, arranged five different gatherings between 2009 and 2013. In 2019, the founder and other DJs, with the help of Alison Celentano and Shannon Volpe, were ready to take on putting together the collective of fellow DJs again, six years since the last and added the fundraising aspect to the event.
