Donnie Malpass

Lead DJ

Do you remember Marky Mark's "Good Vibrations" and the lyric that said "Donnie D break it down?" Well, that makes us think of our Donnie every time. He can break it down on the dance floor as he's an avid West Coast swing dancer. Now that doesn't mean he'll be on your dance floor - it means he's fun, engaging, personal and as the DJ, he knows how to help others have fun. 


Donnie was like a dream-find for us. He's hugely active with philanthropy and Cystic Fibrosis especially. He speaks in front of crowds of hundreds...yet you feel like you've known him forever talking 1:1. He's humble, energetic, driven and a leader. He loves his JT, his Panthers, and he loves being part of days like yours. He recognizes both the privilege and impact we have. And for those reasons and so many others, we know Donnie will help make your day a huge success.

What song best desribes you as a DJ?

Sexy Back. I'm bringing it. Or as least trying to, ha! 


If I were a singer in a band, I'd be...

...Bruno Mars. Dude can dance!


What's the worst hairdo you've ever had?

A flat top with a rat tail in 3rd grade. Dear goodness that was rough.


If I'm your DJ, I promise I won't… up with a rat tail. Or go rogue on you from everying we planned in advance!


What's your go-to dance move?

The "Donnie Shuffle."


What's your strongest trait as a DJ?

Being able to relate and get along with people. People skills! But also my knowledge of dancing and music.


My favorite part of DJing Weddings/Events is...

...being able to contribute to the success of such a special occasion. During the wedding/event itself, it's that moment when you play the perfect song at the perfect time. 


Worst thing you've ever seen at a Wedding...

Sadly I witnessed a Maid of Honor trying to dictate how the reception should go...and then crying when she didn't get her way. 


What's your favorite sport?  



Favorite teams?

The Carolina Panthers of course. 


Favorite activities beside DJing?

Venture Philanthropy.


You're too old to...

...keep going when I don't have enough sleep!


You're too young to...

...stop learning. 


Everyone asks the DJ what their favorite song what's yours?

Anything JT!

Carolina DJ Professionals is absolutely amazing!! Seriously look no further for your dj, book them now! They are extremely professional, organized and helpful! Every step of the way Troy and his team were so helpful and really put our minds at ease! Each time we left a meeting with him we were just so overly happy with our decision to go with them. They seriously know what they are doing and will make it super easy for you and you will be super happy with the outcome. I really enjoyed all the things they provided us with like the timeline that they talk with you about to figure out what to do when during the wedding, spreadsheet of music to choose from, detailed information sheet about your wedding.


They pay very close attention to detail and it really shows when they dj your wedding. We had people complementing Carolina DJ Pros all night and saying how much fun they had at the wedding and that was all thanks to CDJP and their great sense of people and how the crowd is doing. I am an extremely organized person and was very very picky when it came to choosing my DJ and I can seriously say that I made the absolute best choice by choosing Carolina DJ Pros!! They are really there for you and only you! I cannot say enough great things about this company!! Do yourself a favor and book this company! Set up a meeting with one of their amazing DJs and you will see all the amazing things I'm talking about!!
