Scratch Music Group

OverviewSuggest Edit

Scratch Music Group is a high-growth music and technology company that is the leader in DJ booking, technology and music education. Since its founding in 2002 by Rob Principe, Scratch has built the first and largest national network of heavily screened marquee DJs which it utilizes for thousands of events, tours, weddings and music festivals each year. Scratch Music Group is comprised of three complementary business units: • Scratch Events - the nation’s largest corporate DJ booking provider. • Scratch Weddings - the award-winning and industry leading provider of highly skilled and experienced talent servicing the $1.2 billion wedding DJ market. • Scratch DJ Academy - the world’s first and leading DJ learning center, developed in conjunction with Jam Master Jay of Run DMC with locations in New York, Miami, LA, Chicago and 12 satellite locations on cruise ships and Caribbean resorts. In May 2013, Scratch Music Group completed an additional round of growth financing led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA) and includes participation from existing investor Contour Venture Partners. Prior to this round, Scratch Music Group operated without outside funding until 2010, when it closed a $3 million round of Series A financing. Contour Venture Partners led the round, with additional funding from the New York City Investment Fund (NYCIF), and angel investors Jason Finger and Todd Arky, of SeamlessWeb; and Jacob Pachenik, co-founder and CEO of YellowJacket Software. The company has offices in New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Chicago.
