Click above to here the historically correct and hysterical story of the DJ Connection History.
The original components that would later give birth to DJ Connection arrived on Earth via Mary Clark (Clay's Mom) on November 5th 1980 at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma...
After spending 12 years learning and marinating in the Broken Arrow Public School System, the Clark family moved North to a town famous for "Corn." And that town's name was Cokato...however that town was not large enough to justify having its' own high school, and thus young DJ Clayvis attended "Dassel-Cokato High School" with 125 other class mates...big shout outs to the class of '99.
By age 15 young Clay Clark's heavily entreprenual alter-ego "DJ Clay" had been birthed. Whether selling T-shirts, his personal DJ services, cartoons or remixing services one things was sure...DJ Clayvis was always selling...and never buying...because he was and is cheap...yet wonderfully-humble and extravagent in his entreprenual spending...
The year was 1999...the dude was DJ Clayvis...the School was St. Cloud State University, the weather was cold...the political climate was liberal...and the verb was "getting the heck out of Minnesota."
And so promptly after graduating from Dassel-Cokato High School amidst of Sea of School Dances young Clayvis made the jump down south to Oral Roberts University via his hand-painted 1989 Ford Escort (pictured above).

The year was now 1999...the dorm room was #416, the dormitory was Oral Roberts University's EMR.
the roommate was Mark DePetris, and the verb was "not sleeping" and making money.
And so on DJ Clayvis went...Remixing, Recording, DJing, Lifting Weights, and attending ORU...
and everyday was fueled by a high-protein diet and passion...and coffee...various beverages...
Each week, every day, all the time and sometimes even more than that DJ Clayvis could be found promoting his fledging "DJ Empire" out of his trustee black back pack filled with flyers and more propaganda than a Joseph Stalin pep-rally.
However, amidst Clay's endless cycle of eating eating turkey, lifting weights and self-promoting his businesses. Something terrible happened. His roommate and life-long best friend Mark DePetris would be killed in a sudden car accident. This accident forced Clay to pause to evaluate his life, his momentum and his friends. And then it would inspire him to work even harder.
(Pictured above...1999...DJ Clayvis and his best friend Joseph Casey pause for a moment to pay tribute to the Kings of Beer.)

During the years of 1999 and 2000 DJ Clayvis would establish DJ Connection as ORU's choice for entertainment...
And then he would be asked to leave Oral Roberts University amidst a WAVE OF CONTROVERSY regarding the recording of the infamous "ORU SLIM SHADY."
A parody song which spoke truth about the blatant injustices experienced on a daily basis by the campus body attending ORU at the time...and although the song was song well-received by Richard, and Lindsey...the ORU students enjoyed the hell out of it...and Clay's dismissal from ORU only served as fuel for the young "Caucasian Sensation."
And so with his hat on backwards, his head down, his finances down, but his morale up...DJ Clayvis continued to onward on his quest to become a self-made millionaire by age 30. And so off to TARGET he went (for a job)...and then off to TAX AND ACCOUNTING SOFTWARE he went (for a job), and to a poured concrete company he went (for a job)...and then the FAITH HIGHWAY he went (for job)...and to APPLEBEE'S he went (for a job)...and to...you get the point...off to work he went...

And then one day, DJ Clay's young and beautiful Team Leader at Faith Highway spoke up, with these words paraphrased for dramatic emphasis..."Clayvis you must read this book!" And that book was "Think & Grow Rich" the best Damn Book Ever Written...and yes the word Damn was needed to emphasize the greatness of this american self-help literary juggernaut. And after reading that book it was decided...DJ Connection would be the best DJ service ever.
And then...by the grace of God...it happened...DJ Clayvis married the most incredible woman ever. And her name was Vanessa Clark. And oh Vanessa would change him for the better. Not only was Vanessa more intelligent than Clayvis but she was more determined, she was more classy, she was more gorgeous, she was more fit, she was more...her maiden name was Vanessa Moore...but in all sincerity she was better than Clayvis...and he infinite betterness inspired DJ Clayvis to compete...with her. And although to this day DJ Clayvis can still not compete with his wife on any level...the DJ Connection is better because of Vanessa's presence at his side, and as the "real boss" of DJ Connection.

And with his eyes focussed on the dream, and with his wife at his side, onward DJ Clayvis has pressed...moving from the ORU dorm room, to the Fountain Creste Apartments
to their Hearth Stone Condominium...
to their Silverwood House...
to their 8900 South Lynn Lane "DJ Shire of Inspire"
and now finally to the DJ World Headquarters of 5800 E. Skelly Drive...
and now finally to the DJ World Headquarters of 5800 E. Skelly Drive. And from suite #200, with the help of the incredibly talented DJ Connection Team of "Merry Men" DJ Connection is loudly and obviously becoming "America's Most Humble" and most sought after DJ service...
and the harder they have worked...the more awards they have received...and the more books they have read the more they have learned they don't yet know...and the epic journey continues...
