DJ Spotlight: Steve Cie

by Mark Ashe

Steve Cie has been in the entertainment business for a very long time. Thirty-six years, in fact.

His roots began in pirate radio then commercial radio with WVRM (Steve C on the Big V). He’s interviewed Bruce Springsteen, and had the opportunity to work with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Johnny Maestro & The Brooklyn Bridge, The Dubs, Kenny Vance & The Planotones, The Fabulous Duprees and Rick Alviti — just to name a few.

After spending several years as a radio DJ and working part-time as an event DJ, Steve went full-time as a mobile in 1983 — and he hasn’t looked back since!

Jersey Shore Based Single-Op

In addition to our premier DJ services, Steve Cie Entertainment ( also offer clients intelligent lighting and venue lightscaping for just about any type of event.

I’m licensed to perform wedding, civil union, vow renewal non-denominational ceremonies, as well.

My company also offers photobooth and lighting rentals to other DJs.”

Building a Better Mousetrap

Steve is also an inventor/entrepreneur. He developed a DJ facade/frontboard called the FaCIEd.

This Lycra spandex booth is easier and lighter to transport than other facades on the market. The name FaCIEd combines my last name ‘Cie’ along with the word ‘facade’.”

One look at its impressive professional appearance, and it’s easy to understand why Steve can hardly keep up with the demands from other DJs for this product (

Professional Involvement

Steve belongs to and is very involved with the New Jersey Disc Jockey Network. This organization helps educate DJs (both newbies and veterans) to improve their performances and images. Steve likes the fact that at meetings, everyone leaves their egos at the door. He also regularly presents seminars to his peers.

Steve Cie reminds all of us…

We’re mobile entertainers, not just music spinners. Focus on adding on new elements to your basic DJ services because diversification is good!”
