Two Teens Put Their Own Spin on DJ Biz

It takes more than a sense of rhythm to make a DJ business successful. Being able to mix two songs together seamlessly is a good start, but each act needs its hook -- something that grabs the audience and draws it in. For Avi Elhiani and Yoni Aviv, both 14-year-old Orthodox day school students, that unique spin comes from the melding of their distinct personalities and drawing from the musical heritage of their Sephardic cultures. Before the Big Boyz D-Jewz make it to a gig, these young entrepreneurs have a lot to overcome -- heavy schoolwork loads, long hours spent perfecting mixes and dealing with conflicts that inevitably arise in any business arrangement. But when they overcome the obstacles, Elhiani and Aviv can focus on what matters most.
