Heather Yenawine is proud to have started her first business, HAY DJ, in the place where she was born, Louisville, Kentucky. With a strong background as both an instrumentalist and actor, Yenawine decided to take her passion for music and parlay it into an innovative and eclectic specialty DJ service.

Heather is a graduate of Syracuse University with degrees in Policy Studies and African American Studies. While in college, she traveled around the world, with extended stays in Southern Africa and Southeast Asia. Throughout her journey she was exposed to vibrantly different cultures and musical traditions, which inform her work now.

Since returning to Louisville, Yenawine has been the Advertising Director of Bejeezus Magazine, as well as a freelance writer for the LEO, Velocity and Louisville Magazine. In radio, Yenawine has worked as a writer for WFPL’s “State of Affairs,” and simultaneously interned with WFPK, where her intense interest in music was fostered.

In 2005 she partnered with Randell Bolton and together they established HAY DJ.

Randy Bolton was born and raised in Louisville and has worked in the record store industry for the last 17 years. Bolton spent most of his career as one of the managers of ear X-tacy Records on Bardstown Road. For years before it’s closing, Bolton bought over 30% of the stores music, and as such, his musical knowledge is vast. Throughout his career he has accumulated a superior music collection, which serves as a primary resource for HAY DJ.

Largely self-taught, Bolton has also worked a special music writer to the Courier Journal. Though never a musician himself, Randy is an ardent fan with an insatiable hunger for musical knowledge.
