Michael Dandurand, Color Photograph, Kustom Sounds Kauai Professional DJ

I am a local boy having spent 95% of my life in the islands. Originally from Oahu, I began my love for music and DJing in high school. I furthered my DJ training at the University of Notre Dame, not studying, but playing at the Senior Bar on the weekends to earn extra money.

I have put together a team of professional DJs that can read a crowd, MC a function and get the party started! We are the ONLY company completely dedicated to this industry!

I moved to beautiful Kauai after college and worked as a sales manager at the Kauai Hilton while performing at private parties around the island on evenings and weekends. My skills as a DJ and Emcee sharpened as I performed at more and more weddings and local events. Ultimately, I had to give up my day job so that I could pursue my passion as a DJ/MC fulltime.

Zach Stratt, Headshot, Kustom Sounds Kauai DJ

Everyone loves Zach. Zachary Van Stratt hails from Telluride, CO, 16 years as a DJ. Zach has a cool, smooth way about him putting everyone around him at ease. His knowledge and “possession” of music and how it works is untouchable. A renowned scratch DJ from the east coast, we are lucky to have this talented artist that has made the leap into the wedding market without skipping a beat.

I spend my free time surfing, socializing and searching for the lost city of shambhala. Why do I love DJing? I love the technical side of DJing. Scratching, drumming, mixing, beat juggling but nothing beats watching everyone dance to their favorite songs.

You’ll find Zach to be a DJ or many surprising talents. He’s an accomplished Alto and Tenor Saxophone player. He’s a student of music theory, sound engineering and production. He’s an award-winning turntablist, playing alongside the likes of Coolio, Wu Tang Clan, 2 Live Crew, the Guru’s and the Wailers and has been invited to play in many top clubs across the country because of his talent (NY, LA, Vegas, Denver and SF). He is verifiably one of the top 3 turntablists in the US.
