Young Deejay Ezra Djing learning the business with his father
LAHAINA – The sounds and upbeat tempo that characterize Ron Tolbert’s DJRon808 service for party events look to have a solid future, as his son, Ezra Djing, has joined forces with his dad to promote the ever-popular sound system for special events.
Having served Maui for some 25 years already, DJRon808 has certainly set a high sounds standard at parties, weddings, dances and various other celebrations over that span. And now, with Ezra joining the fold, the future is indeed bright for the service.
Young Ezra, 13, an eighth-grader-to-be at Lahaina Intermediate School, has been working with DJRon for three years now at gaming events, Boys and Girls Club programs and many other kid-friendly events.
Ezra has been in the Boy Scouts for eight years in Lahaina Troop 79, and over the next year he will work toward the coveted Eagle Scout ranking.
He also plays the alto saxophone with the LIS Music Department directed by Mark Gilmore, enjoys flying drones and recently joined the Civil Air Patrol.
Ezra has helped with providing the sounds for special events and dances at Lahaina Intermediate.
He is a continual qualifier for the school’s Renaissance Partners In Living and Learning program that honors students that meet set standards in academics, citizenship and community service with reward days on campus and at the beach.
He also attended the Island Gents Program, a 12-week leadership program at LIS led by Richard Jack.
Ezra’s future plans include to learn as much as he can about music and video production, and to keep working and learning with Dad DJRon.
“I also look forward to keep working with DJRon, and also try to develop new ideas and programs to start my own deejay business and expand my musical interests,” Ezra concluded.
