Amanda DiGarli

As a social dancer for the past decade who follows, leads, and travels frequently across the country and abroad, Amanda is constantly exposed to the diversity of tango, which makes her DJing style unique. She prepares by thinking about who is attending and what moods have already been created to tailor her musical selections for that specific crowd in the moment. She features songs that range from fast, intense, and heavy to sweet, playful, and nostalgic to sustain the energy throughout the night. Her number one rule for DJing: don’t just play music people want to hear; play music they have no choice but to get up and dance to!
Amanda can be reached via her facebook group at DGTango.
