Qool DJ Marv

Born & raised in Philadelphia, Qool DJ Marv started DJing while in college at Emory & grad school at Columbia. From school to gigs in the West & East Village & all over downtown Manhattan; Bar Six, Izzy, Opaline, Ludlow Bar & APT. Late 90s started a 21 year run of being HBO's non-celebrity DJ. Early 2000s Marv became a resident at the Manchester UK based Friends & Family parties which led to opportunities to DJ in London, Paris, Barcelona, Oslo, Abu Dhabi, Dublin and Moscow. Still going strong, in 2024, Marv is currently the Tuesday evening resident DJ at Soho House NYC and is part of the DJ rotations at the Ludlow and Dumbo Houses. There’s an exuberant idealism in Marv’s appealing mix that bridges us all – with a universal vibe, everybody gets down.
