Randy Deshaies


Nature claims energy cannot be created or destroyed. And that energy exists in everything with the ability to do work once it is unlocked. Work is defined as a product of distance, mass, and acceleration. Where the distance is the dance floor,

mass is the people getting down, and acceleration is the Music coming from the DJ booth. So where does Randy’s energy come from?

Randy’s energy comes from a deep love for house music and the obsession to consistently apply that energy to every event and dance floor he is involved in. A love that developed in the later part of the 90s, inspired by such DJs and Producers as; Doc Martin, Josh Wink, Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, and Little Louie Vega.

Known as the hardest working promoter in Boston, Randy has built a reputation on quality house music. Consistently providing Boston with the best underground house music in the area and applying those same principals in his DJ sets.

Randy, along with two close friends, developed Marz Entertainment in the summer of 1998 with the vision of revamping the local house scene. Four years later and countless hours of hard work, Randy and Marz Entertainment is making a serious impact in Boston. From the small house parties and one-off events in the beginning, to the first collaboration with mentors and friends, the ShadowKings, called TOUCH (which featured some of the biggest Producers, DJs, and Artists in deep house, including: DJ Spen, Mateo & Matos, Julius Papp, Ron Trent, and many more). To the first primetime weekly event, BREATHE, every Friday night at Hibernia (featured: DJ Spun, Neil Aline, Jay-J, Andrew Macari, Master D). To the current event BUMP.

The new millennium has seen the emergence of Marz Entertainment as a leader. 2002 in particular, has introduced Randy as a DJ. Holding residencies at Hibernia, Phoenix Landing, Pravda 116, Limbo Lounge, the Regulars loft parties, and the infamous Summer Boat Cruise Parties. Exerting every ounce of his love and energy, which dissipates through every set.

As the new year approach quickly, Randy’s drive and determination grows along with his love for the music and this city. If this city has a diamond in the rough, we think we found it in Randy Deshaies.
