Rutherford Beat Hayes

Rutherford Beat Hayes

Rutherford started stomping his feet in the womb, and rhythm has been a major part of his life ever since. In the fourth grade he got his first drum set, and formed his first rock band a few years later. When he wasn't playing gigs in college, he was the music master at parties, honing his chops with DJ Toddy. He's been seen manning the decks at clubs, music festivals, and intimate private events.

Whether you're seeking a laid back lounge feel, or want to rock the house, it's all about finding the right song to compliment the moment, whatever the crowd, venue, or beat.

In the crates

All vinyl. Always. As it should be.

Rutherford's crates hold vintage alternative, hip hop, funk/soul, dancehall, punk, salsa, afrobeat, pop, and lots of rare finds with grooves. Every event features a hand-curated collection, meticulously selected just for your party.
