The Bash Dj's
Taylor Courtney, Founder
Taylor was born and raised in Manheim, PA. Taylor's grew up in a house of music as his father, Steven Courtney, is a full time musician. However, his music obsession didn't develop until high school when he heard John Mayer's "I don't trust myself". This newfound love of music exploded into what many have called an "obsessive" study of music.
In 2011 Taylor began pursuing DJ'ing as a full time career and founded Bring On The Bash. Since then he's mixed at countless weddings, events, restaurants and parties with a style that seamlessly blends pop, hip-hop, funk, soul, electronic, alternative, rock and reggae. His talent’s have given him the opportunities to be the main entertainment at events such as Fête En Blanc and open for bands like Earth, Wind & Fire.
When Taylor isn't hosting an event, he spends time with his wife Kelsey and their daughter Pearl and son Gray. Free time is spent indulging in all things nerd; In particular: planning Dungeons & Dragons sessions, collecting manga and learning to make ramen from scratch.
Sean Otto, DJ
Sean grew up playing bass, drums and guitar and has transferred that groove of being a musician into his new passion, DJ'ing.
With a song constantly playing in his head, Sean's incessant dreaming manifests into his mixes. By blending together your song selection with your guests vibes, he keeps the dance floor packed.
Sean still plays bass guitar for projects, writing music, and church. He loves spending time with his wife, Madeline, and their dog, Margot. Friends and family are very important to him. Any second of free time is spent bringing joy to their lives, in turn bringing joy to his.
Joel Madas, DJ
Joel Madas has always loved music. Whether listening to his mom play piano as a little boy, singing in church, performing in school choirs, studying theory in college, or forcing his wife to listen to every new song or artist he's stumbled across, music is an integral part of his life. Now, he's bringing that passion to being a DJ.
Joel is thrilled to join the team at Bring on the Bash. His love of music doesn't discriminate based on genre, and he can't wait to work with you to create just the right atmosphere through music at your next special event.
When he's not making sure everyone's on their feet at your party, Joel enjoys listening to future bass music, going to concerts, re-watching (and quoting) the best 90s sitcom of all time, Boy Meets World, and eating midnight snacks with his wife, Kelsey.
