Entranced by DC's underground rave culture, Vienna, Va. native DJ Keenan (aka Keenan Orr) burst onto the area's house music scene in the mid-nineties. In 2003, Orr began working at Metatacks Studios, the only studio in DC dedicated to Electronic Dance Music. Here, Orr became involved with XM Satellite Radio, where he and fellow DJ Dimitri Max hosted a show called "Launch Pad." On air for two hours every Sunday night, Launch Pad was broadcasted to over four million listeners across the U.S. and Canada.

Bouncing from Chicago House, Baltimore Club, Electro, Disco and classics of the 80's and 90's, Orr has landed residencies at a number of clubs around the city, including Cobalt, Marvin, and Rock and Roll Hotel.

In 2010, DJ Keenan was named the DC DJ of the year by Washington City Paper. Known for clean mixing and a good ear for music, Orr makes a lasting impression on all that have the privilege to experience his set. DJ Keenan has arrived.
