Case Study: Rutgers University, DJ Nate Hawley

Want to take your sporting event entertainment to the next level? Don't hire just any DJ -- get the official DJ of Rutgers Football!

Meet Hurricane Productions' Nate Hawley, the go-to DJ for Rutgers Athletics. Whenever there's a football game, wrestling match, or gymnastics meet at RU, you're almost certain to find Nate behind the DJ booth.

University Football DJ

Nate first connected with Hurricane Productions after attending a Rutgers event the company had produced. His lifelong passion for music and DJing propelled him to reach out and ask how he could get involved. With a strong interest in being a college sports event DJ, Hurricane gave then-sophomore Nate his first Rutgers DJ opportunity in 2014. Within a couple of years, Nate became known as the “Official DJ of Rutgers Football.”

Since then, his skills as a professional DJ and MC have only improved.

"My music library and knowledge has grown and my mixing is no longer tied to a specific genre," he says. "I’m comfortable with any crowd and I can now use the mic without stumbling through announcements

While Nate is best known for entertaining crowds on game day, he's so much more than the Rutgers Football DJ. He's also one of our most popular private event entertainers. Whether he's working solo or as part of a DJ-MC team, Nate will curate the perfect playlist for you and your guests while delivering the professionalism you expect.

Hurricane promotes Nick Nittoli to Director of Operations

Hurricane Productions prides itself on developing and rewarding homegrown talent. And Nick Nittoli's recent promotion to Director of Operations is that narrative in action.

Nick officially started the full-time position role in May 2016.

But Nick's journey at Hurricane began over six years ago as a freelance photographer after he graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ.

As he grew his photography portfolio, the company grew in step - seeing an increase in corporate and University events.

Nick sensed the shift. As a self-starter, he learned more about production. He taught himself how to shoot video. He operated photo booths. He enabled himself to fulfill as many needs as possible.

Nick developed into the ultimate utility team member.

"I invested in myself and that provided me with new opportunities within the company," Nittoli said. "If you would have told me on my first day that I'd be where I am now, I'd have thought you were crazy. The truth is, I couldn't be happier because I know the company is on the cusp of exploding into the next level and I'm just happy to be a part of that."

As Director of Ops, Nick oversees all of the company's events with a focus on staffing, equipment and internal technology.

"When you're growing a company, you have to grow your brain trust," said Hurricane's CEO Vincent Velasquez. "And there's no one that knows the event business, specifically our business, better than Nick."

Go further back than six years ago, Nick and Vincent played baseball together as classmates at St. John Vianney High School in Holmdel, NJ. Hurricane's co-founder/owner - Strato Doumanis - also graduated from SJV.

Nick is part of the company's recently developed 'front office,' which includes full-time positions held by Velasquez, Doumanis, and Administrative Assistant Chelsea Rutkowski.
