I'm DJ BFG, a.k.a. Gabriel Squailia, and I've been spinning professionally for fifteen years now. I got my start in New York City, during the first year of Scratch DJ Academy's top-notch DJ training program. I soon began a weekly residency at Fatty's Cafe in Astoria, where I got my name. (BFG once stood for Big Fat Gabriel, though it's morphed through the years into Beats For Geeks and my personal favorite, Booty-Focused Grooves.) Currently, I'm the Special Events DJ for Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, and I perform for arts organizations, wedding receptions, and private parties all over Berkshire County.

Seamless transitions are my specialty, and I'm a consummate crowd-reader with a solid handle on groups of diverse ages and backgrounds. My taste in music is eclectic and upbeat, and I prefer to blend genres while keeping the groove in the pocket. As far as genres go, if you dig it, I can work with it.

Most of my gigs are in Berkshire County and surrounding areas, but I regularly travel from Vermont to Connecticut, and I'm always happy to visit new places.

In my other life, I'm the author of the dark, funny fantasy novels Dead Boys and Viscera. I live with my partner and daughter in Western MA. I'm transgender, and my pronouns are she/her.
