About DJ5

DJ5, aka Bill Buchanan, started making a big noise in the music scene in the Asheville area in 2023. He has DJed for breweries, wedding receptions, pool parties, youth groups, New Years Eve parties, and silent discos. You may have seen him at the RailYard or the White Horse in Black Mountain, Montreat Conference Center, or Rabbit Rabbit in Asheville. His music helps people of all ages loosen up, dance, laugh, and connect.

All kinds of music belong on DJ5's dance floor, but his sweet spot is a mix of soul, blues, pop, EDM, and hip hop, specially suited to each event. 

It's hard for him to narrow down the list of musicians he loves most, but when pressed, these are some of DJ5's influences:  

Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Sharon Jones, Booker T. and the M.G.s, the whole Stax Records catalog; B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Son House; GRiZ, Rezz, Girl Talk, Tiësto, Beats Antique; and Jurassic 5, Arrested Development, Run the Jewels, Beastie Boys, Q-Tip, and Missy Elliott.
