Aaron "Terkalerk" Terkel

Aaron "Terkalerk" Terkel honed his craft working with a career DJ in New York, and fondly remembers hauling Peavey speaker towers and mail bins full of CDs to parties well into the mid-00's. After nearly a decade of road gigs, morning radio shows, and overnight recording studio work, Terk moved home to Cleveland, picked up two turntables of his own, and kept the tunes spinning.

Terkalerk draws influences from funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, R&B, and pop radio. His emcee style is unobtrusive. He remains refined on the mic, but holds command of the room. Find him spinning Lake Erie cruises aboard Lady Caroline or behind the decks at your next event.
