Rica’s love for music is matched by her love for animals and nature. Her happy places include camping, cooking vegan feasts for friends, and sitting by a fire with her dogs with Kate Bush on vinyl.
These are just a few samples to give you a snapshot of what we have to offer. We are always happy to customize our mixing and song selection to suit your style.
A Chicago native, Rica has been making music since she could hold a violin at 4 years old. She fell in love with DJing during college, hosting a new music radio show on KLMU in Los Angeles, as well as recording mixes for dance teams and workout instructors. After graduating with an honors degree in Communications, she moved back to Chicago where she has since gained a decade of experience bringing live audio and visuals to life for nightclubs, bars, and hundreds of private and corporate groups. Past clients include Viacom, T-Mobile, Cardinal Health, Sephora, Appfolio, Stryker, JP Morgan, State Farm, Open Books, the Chicago Park District, Salesforce, and the NBA.
Every gathering is a unique, dynamic journey. Sculpt the right soundtrack to it and watch the path of discovery, nostalgia and joy unfold for all in attendance. Rica cherishes every opportunity to read the room and create an atmosphere of inclusivity and collaboration. She comes prepared with the freshest remixes of your favorite songs, and is equally keen that drop original anthem that will have everyone crashing the dance floor and singing along.
If you’re wondering how to bring people together, music is your answer, and Rica is your DJ!
DJ Rica is absolutely fantastic! She was the DJ for both of my daughters’ Bat Mitzvahs, as well as several fundraisers for our local elementary school. Rica can “read the room” better than anyone and always selects the right vibe for the party guests. She has amazing people skills and entertains adults and kids of all ages.
Rica is masterful with music and always follows guidelines while making any necessary adjustments during the event. She engages well with all guests and gets everyone on the dance floor. All of my parties have been extended since the guests have refused to stop dancing! DJ Rica entertains guests’ song requests while still remaining true to the hosts’ guidance. I highly recommend that you hire DJ Rica for your next party! She will make it a night to remember and a celebration for the ages!
