DJ Sammy Donado

Sammy Donado
I sometimes stop to think how crazy (and amazing!) it is that something I loved doing as a kid is now my full-time career! My name is Sammy Donado. I’m a music aficionado and host extraordinaire! Se habla español.
 
I am currently the In-Arena Host for the Anaheim Ducks. I am grateful that, for the last 10 years, my talents have taken me all over the country, rocking stages and crowds at several Super Bowls and Vans Warped Tours, the Rolling Loud Festival, CMA Fest, NASCAR races, and more. I’m super excited to be a part of Dancing DJ Productions and to keep the party and fun going. 
 
Having been born in Colombia and raised in Miami, rhythm and flavor runs in my blood (and trust me, these hips don’t lie!). I grew up on 90’s Hip-Hop and Latin music, but I always explored genres of all kinds, from Reggae and Dancehall, to Classics and Rock-And-Roll, Indie, Alternative, EDM, and all the nuanced genres in between. My DJing style is focused on clean blends and mixes and taking the crowd on a fun ride through different waves of energy and styles. I have a natural high-energy and charismatic personality that is amplified whenever behind the decks or on the mic, yet I can be just as professional and poised when needed.
 
I get asked all the time about what separates me from other DJs/ MCs. The truth is, my talent and experience is secondary. If you ask me, most important is my genuine care and concern for the success of the event and the happiness and enjoyment of those present. I am very easy-going, and provide an unparalleled level of “customer service” with an attention to detail. I aim to go above-and-beyond for my clients.

“Sammy D is the man! Whether it’s Dj’ing and keeping the energy high or working the mic to keep the masses entertained, he does it all.  We’ve had him work massive events for the Super Bowl and smaller intimate events for VIP clients and he always knows how to set the mood.  Professional, funny and the perfect energy for any event.  As long as he is at your event, you are in good hands and more importantly, so are your guests”
