About

Growing up on the east coast (Washington DC), residing on the west coast (Los Angeles, CA) for 11 years, Meghan aka “dj meegs”, has returned to her roots & can be found hosting, promoting and dj’n parties all over the DC area. Growing up in a large, Irish & very musical household, where her parents offered their home to host weekly music lessons, Meegs picked up her first instrument at the age of 6 (tin whistle).

Meegs then learned to play the bodhran (irish drum) from Jesse Winch, of Celtic Thunder touted as the world’s premiere bodhran player. She was also enrolled in the O’Neil James School of Irish Dance at the age of four, competed nationally through high-school, and after a break during college, later reconnected with her dance school to student-teach when Riverdance became a national phenomenon. She contributes her love, understanding and passion for music to her parent’s zeal for traditional Irish music.

Meegs was first introduced to electronic music in the early 90’s when she attended her first “rave” at the Capital Ballroom in Washington DC. “Back then the staples were Scott Henry, Bad Boy Bill, Doc Martin, and Charles (gonna make you) Feelgood”, who came to be her “first” favorite dj. After moving to LA and meeting some local dj’s, she was invited to play percussion (congas, djembe) at various underground parties around Los Angeles. This spawned her career as a local promoter first, which led to dj’n and eventually hosting her own weekly parties ‘SPIN’, ‘XPRESSION’, ‘HAPPY HOUSE, HAPPY HOUR’ & ‘GET WELL SUNDAYS’ in LA.

Keeping with her roots and traditional musicianship, Meegs is known for incorporating live music and dancing with her sets. Her organic, soulful sound invites live instrumentation where you can hear her preference for funk, latin, reggae & celtic beats fused with soul driven lyrics with emotional content. “My goal is to continue growing the HOUSE music community in DC & beyond, collaborate with other musicians, and attempt to make the Irish jig cool!” Meegs currently holds various residencies in DC, produces her own music & moving forward in the art of video-djing.
