DJ Roger Gangi
Confident. Exuberant. Motivated. Raw. These are just a few of the words that fans and insiders have used to describe DJ Roger Gangi.
Born in Hackensack, N.J., Roger's love for music began at an early age. Originally a self-taught pianist and well versed drummer, Roger started writing and performing his own music at an early age with little professional training. His natural ability to drum and keep a groove was perfect for the funky ska band called "Frat House." His passion for DJing evolved later; little did he know that drumming would boost his confidence to perform in front of large club crowds.
Living in New Jersey but spending most of his time in New York City, Rogers’ passion for DJing exploded when he heard his first house DJ at Ohm Nightclub, Johnny Vicious. With an ear for blending music under his belt and a love for performing, Roger started collecting house music and taught himself how to mix with a pair of mismatched turntables.
Now a professional DJ in Las Vegas, DJ Roger Gangi has performed at some of the most exclusive clubs, lounges and pool parties on the strip. Roger moved to Las Vegas in January 2006 and launched his Vegas career at Caramel in the Bellagio Hotel. Since then, hard work and dedication has given Roger the opportunity to work for MGM Mirage Corporation, Light Group and Harrah’s Entertainment. In the last two years DJ Roger Gangi has performed at Jet Nightclub, Empire Ballroom, Scores After Hours, Foundation Room, Tabu, Cherry, Hawaiian Trop Zone and V-Bar, as well as all the summertime pool parties at Bare, MGM and Paris Hotel.
Roger Gangi is currently a resident DJ in Las Vegas and travels the U.S. performing over 200 shows each year.
Working in the studio and producing music has been an important part of Roger's life. Now his dreams have turned into a career of energy and everlasting entertainment. He is currently working with the one and only Britney Star, and Roger is also in the studio pursuing his passion for house music. In 2007, Roger shot a music video for his hit mash-up of "Give It To Me" featuring Timbaland, Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake. This song was featured on Myspace and caught the attention of filmmaker, McKinley Presents. With the help of McKinley, DJ Crime and Scores Las Vegas...Roger's music and video has been featured around the world.
