Ashley Johnson, also known as DJ A-List, is a DJ based in Philadelphia. Born and raised in Detroit, MI, Ashley always had a passion for music and connecting people together with social gatherings. Upon finishing college with a degree in Accounting and Marketing, Ashley was relocated to Minneapolis to work for a Fortune 500 company. While in Minneapolis, Ashley became one of Minneapolis’s premiere event planners for creative and diverse professionals between the ages of 22 and 40. With the launch of two successful businesses, Ashley produced various events that were sponsored by companies such as Target & Uptown Magazine.


Due to another relocation, Ashley found herself in Philadelphia. Inspired by the deep roots in art and music in Philly, Ashley decided to follow her life long passion of DJing, thus DJ A-List was born. DJ A-List taught herself how to DJ by working countless hours. DJ A-List's "open format" style allows her to cover events with a diverse audience. By merging her love of DJing and her experience in connecting others, DJ A-List is able to produce her own events in order to make sure her guests have the best experience.
