About Side Project's: DJandDrummer.com
Side Project - DJ and Drummer, is a dynamic & high-energy act that merges the modern sound of a live DJ with the time-honored rhythm of the Drums.
Each Side Project performance is unique, because there is no set playlist! Instead they play to your crowd and give them the songs they want to hear! It's like having a band with an Endless Song list!!!
Not only is Side Project incredible to listen to, but also visually stimulating with their state of the art LED Drum Set, in which the lights dance to the music.
They have played hundreds of high-profile events, making them one of the most experienced DJ and Drummer duo available.
If you are looking for an original way to entertain your guests that will leave them talking, even after the party has ended, then Side Project is what you have been waiting for!!

"In 2000, Archer started make a name for himself in the entertainment industry by playing his Conga/Drums in nontraditional ways. He quickly got noticed and began playing on numerous circuits that covered musical genres from Folk, Hip Hop, Funk Rap, Rock , Dance, and Spoken Word Shows. Working with this diverse talent pool helped him cross-pollinate musical styles, and introduce different methods to each group he worked with.
"As an artist I am always looking for new ways to transform my sound, performance, and technique. Over the years I've picked up different styles and sounds from the various artists I have worked with, and applied them to the drums.
One example, when I first started getting booked for big gigs, I was at a Jam Band Festival playing with Dave Daniels. I decided to switch things up and play my congas with my arms behind my back and the crowd was loving it, but it was when I started to "scratch" my drums like a DJ that they went nuts! I originally got this idea from working with Hip Hop DJs, and it was when I saw the crowd's reaction that I knew I had found something special."
Archer still continues to work with artists in the studio, but his true passion can be seen in his LIVE PERFORMANCES. From the moment he walks on the stage, he creates an energy that stimulates the crowd and lasts throughout the night
To add to his stage presence, Archer wanted his drum set to be visually stimulating. So he worked closely with the Late Dennis Stauffer, to build the BRIGHTEST LED DRUM SET that Stauffer Percussion had ever built! Audiences become mesmerized as they watch his drum set glow and change colors right before their eyes.
The wide range of percussion used at his shows include:
Congas, Bongos, Timbales, Cymbals, and his CUSTOM LED DRUM SET!
