KARSON WITH A "K"

FOUNDER OF ALL STAR ACADEMY

I’m Karson with a “K,” and since 1995, I’ve been immersing myself in the world of entertainment, starting as a 15-year-old at a roller rink. By 18, I was part of a professional DJ company, cutting my teeth in the dynamic wedding and entertainment industry. Since 1998, I’ve dedicated myself to being a wedding DJ, amassing a wealth of experience and knowledge in this vibrant field. My journey also led me to a fulfilling radio career beginning with 98.9 Magic FM, and after a six-year stint as an intern, I secured a full-time spot at 96.1 The Beat, being the first DJ to go on-air at their launch. Those in Colorado Springs in the late 2000s might recall “The Playhouse” with Karson and Shor-T, the number one morning show in the region. My time in radio is studded with memorable moments and prestigious awards from the Colorado Broadcaster Association for Best Feature, Best Afternoon Show, and the coveted Entertainer of the Year.

Radio might have been my first love, but DJing at weddings and events was always my calling. In 2006, I joined forces with DJ Brandon Lee, and together we became the go-to DJ service for “The Occasion,” now “The Pinery.” This partnership blossomed, leading us to exclusive engagements with top venues. With my extensive experience in weddings and the entertainment industry, I’m more than ready to pass on this treasure trove of knowledge and skills.

 

Now, as we continue to thrive, we’re scouting for new talent to expand our team. This is where I come in with my specially crafted training course, infused with years of insights and practical wisdom, ready to guide aspiring DJs in their journey. Join us, and let’s create magic together!
