Health & Wellness DJ
Cass&Ra (female DJ based in Austin, TX) is the DJ side project of composer + keyboardist Cassie Shankman. She primarily plays a mix of funk, disco and house, but other sets have included classic hip-hop, rap, indie-electronic-pop, club mixes, top-40s, and world music. As a trained musician who understands the musical theory behind songs, Cassie began DJing friends' house parties, creating a good vibe, and began growing her audience and clients. She's DJ'd for crowds of over 3,000 people. Check out her facebook here.
Even though Cassie DJ's for many different events, Cassie specializes in DJing for health & wellness clients/events. Her day job is working with the Movement Tracks Project designing original biomedical music to help people move. She uses her research and findings from testing in DJing to create the perfect sets for movement for her clients, whether it be a morning yoga class or a late-night dance party.

"Cassie did a great job dj-ing our wedding! She did a great job of communicating with us before the day of our wedding and also during the wedding. She provided a mic for us to use during our ceremony and for our vows so that we didn't have to worry about renting one out from an outside source. She's completely open to taking suggestions for music and you can tell she enjoys herself along with the guests! Her music selection is a great mix of country, Spanish, hip hop, rock and old school...guaranteed to get the party going! I would highly recommend her for your next celebration. She was also so kind to send some photos that she took, as well as send a playlist of songs she had played from our wedding! That was an awesome touch --- she is awesome!" – Karina & Caty Rangel
