DJ CHEF at BizBash NYC

  DJ CHEF "The Chef That Rocks!' is the only entertainer who simultaneously cooks & deejays for special events world wide. DJ CHEF recently flexed his culinary chops by winning Food Network's Cutthroat Kitchen. On the DJ side, he was voted as a finalist in the BizBash Awards for "DJ of the Year" the past 2 years.

  His recipe was simple. Spin the hottest music while mixing up some delectable gourmet dishes. Throw in some celebrity soirees along with a TV pilot and a dash of media buzz. For nearly 10 years, the DJ Chef has been hitting up a scene that has never been tapped. DJ Chef is the only one who serves up the beats & eat at the same time. While his experience and determination have guided him to the top of his game, he has been hailed as a pioneer and innovator for successfully fusing his two passions and becoming a national crowd pleasing culinary entertainer. He recently co-hosted the World Food Championship in Las Vegas with “Man vs Food”'s Adam Richman & performed at the Nokia Lumia launch party at the Playboy club & with Jersey Shores Snooki at the iHip Headphones booth both at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

  “My grandma says he gave away as much as he sold!” Marc laughed. During the 1920s, Marc’s great grandfather had bigger plans and opened a small store in Harlem. And in 1935, he moved to the City of Long Beach, NY and opened up a green market called King Kohen—located where Waldbaum’s in Long Beach is today. Marc used to visit the fresh fruit and vegetable market everyday with his grandmother to pick him up from work after hi s long day.

  “I remember running around the store grabbing vegetables and fruit and he would tell me what it was and why it was so good,” Marc fondly recalled of his childhood. “All he cared about was doing a good job and making sure all of the kids on the block had a fresh banana or apple.”

 DJ CHEF & Poppy

  Marc’s great grandfather has been the inspiration for his motivation and the love of his career. And, Marc has truly learned a great lesson from “Poppy,” which has influenced his work today. “Love what you do,” he says. “My grandma is so passionate when she speaks about him. He loved his work and loved his family.. Marc’s great grandfather worked at his market until he was 90-years-old & passed away when he was 18.

    While food and cooking has always been Marc’s forefront, as a teen he began making his hobby into a reality. Marc began deejaying at house parties when he was just 16. A couple years later he additionally took on a job as a prep cook. After high school, Marc attended the New York Restaurant School in New York City. After earning his toque, he went on to work with star chefs Bobby Flay, Matthew Kenney & John Tesar and in fine kitchens throughout the city. Marc found his culinary groove and returned to Long Island & local restaurants achieve rave reviews. His success as a noted chef was becoming a reality within local media outlets like News 12, Newsday, and The New York Times, and Marc began hosting and catering private parties during that time. More and more, people began socializing in the kitchen with him and asking him culinary questions.

DJ CHEF Decadent Desserts

     After the launch of Food Network, Marc saw food as an entertainment tool and set out to make his passion for music and food a combination for success. He began entertaining at parties and events where he deejayed while preparing a gourmet meal and from then on the DJ CHEF was born.

     DJ CHEF’s unique talents became popular enough that he was beginning to receive invitations to major events. He has been hired to perform for a variety of celebrity events including Christie Brinkley & B.Smith’s Blue Moon BBQ in the Hamptons, James Blunt’s CD Release Party and has appeared on multiple television shows and segments including: the Food Network’s “What’s Hot!, What’s Cool!,” MTV’s Celebrity Spring Break Style special with Lindsay Lohan, MSNBC’s Entertainment Hot List, Discovery Channel’s Party Planner, with David Tutera VH1's “My Big Friggin’ Wedding”, FUSE TV’s One Year Anniversary live on IMX, What’s Hot in the Hamptons with Gina Glickman and in an NBC News feature on the hottest trends in entertainment at the Biz Bash Event Style Show.
