DJ Takes Stock in Niche Wedding Market
East Windsor, N.J.—Like so many DJs, Gregg Hollmann had an inkling that he would somehow find himself behind the console.
With an interest in music from an early age, this Jersey Shore native studied piano and alto sax in high school, playing in jazz and classical ensembles. He also starting displaying a characteristic found so often in DJs: he became an avid music collector, collecting stacks of records across a wide range of tastes, particularly jazz records—Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Kenny Burrell, Bud Powell and Michael Brecker.
Near the end of high school, Trenton State College offered him a full music scholarship, and that’s where the path ended—for a bit.
