Shiraz Events:  What is it about ‘musik’ that you’re so passionate about?

Karrie Goldberg: I love seeing how music can change the feel of a room and a person’s mood. I grew up in Chicago and everyone there was so passionate about their music, especially house, so every night I got to hear some of the most talented producers and DJs in all genres.


SE: Who are a few new hot summer DJ’s?

KG: I just heard Grum– I think he is going to be it as far as electronic music goes. We also just hosted an event for the Black Eyed Peas and Will.i.am deejayed – super fun music and amazing old school tunes mixed in, it was a really fun set.


SE: What are the new music trends in the limelight?

KG: As far as the music goes, electronic/dance is definitely making a comeback. Even hip hop/rock artists are incorporating big house music production into their tracks. As far as artists go, I am seeing a lot more of band member’s deejaying as a serious career when their bands are not touring (Jeremy from Shiny Toy Guns, Roger Taylor of Duran Duran, Martin Gore of Depeche Mode, Andy Bell from Erasure, James Iha of Smashing Pumpkins).


SE: What inspires your creativity?

KG: Aside from music- it has always been fashion & makeup that inspires me. As a kid, I bought Kevyn Aucoin’s makeup books and spent hours on makeup and wigs. As per fashion, I love Jean Paul Gaultier,  Yohji Yamamoto, Chloe and Chanel.


SE: What is your secret to the art of entertainment? 

KG: I think if you asked my friends, they would probably say my secret is ‘Nutritional Yeast,’ a vegan powder that is packed full of vitamins, protein and lots of other goodies- it has an amazing taste and I swear is why I never get sick.  I have all my friends addicted to putting it on their salads.


“KAGE KONSULTING is the culmination of Karrie’s interests, experience and extensive resource database. Currently KAGE represents 19 venues in Manhattan alone and a few others in Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles, and is contracted to perform venue sales, marketing, and special events. Karrie recently launched KAGENCY, a booking agency for internationally known DJ talent, including Supermodel Eve Savail, Cielo’s Nicolas Matar, resident Buddah Bar DJ, Timka and Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor.”
