Camp Calabash

We're having a space jam!

ROBBY, CAMP DIRECTOR

Hey, I'm Robby Kelley. I’m a DJ and music producer based in the East Village. For the last ten years, I’ve been represented by 74 Events, the top wedding DJ agency in NYC. This is my solo show, Camp Calabash.

I’ve DJed 400 weddings across the Tri-State Area, setting it off from The Bowery Hotel to The NoMad.

In the nightlife, I DJ at spots like Brooklyn Bowl and Bed-Vyne Brew, focusing on Caribbean and global dance music.

I’m an island boy at heart, raised in Honolulu, Hawaii.

As a DJ, I like to think of myself as one of those huge ‘80s boomboxes… where all the jams come from.

I'll get your aunt on the dancefloor, and I’ll make sure the music isn’t the typical. People tell me they find my setlists refreshing — not the same tired tunes you hear at events.

My job is to get to know what you’re into. We’ll plan out all aspects of the music and schedule. I’ll help you create the best celebration you can imagine.

Ten things I really like:

  • Giving the best Hawaii travel tips

  • Joe's Pizza — the one on Carmine

  • Campfire stories

  • Low-key bingeing on Netflix

  • West African dance (shout out to teacher Cass!)

  • Seth Godin

  • Elizabeth Warren

  • Olde New York

  • Future New York

  • Rocketships to Mars


ELIZABETH, RHYTHM RAIDER

Elizabeth Pupo-Walker

To kick off dancing, Elizabeth Pupo-Walker will take the stage. Her energy behind the drums lights up the room and gets your guests involved.

She’s one of New York City’s top live drummers, and has played with John Legend, Mark Ronson, The Roots and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.

Give your party a shot of energy. Elizabeth’s drumming will set your night apart.
