Cheers Loung Jazz Party hosted by


Al “DJ ACT” Taylor always had a love for good music and good people having a good time. Music was not only a passion but a true hobby.

If you stopped by his house when he was a teenager, you would be stuck in the aura of him playing all the right music. His skills in music collaborations had people staying in the dining room for hours. Soon he was told by his talents that he should go beyond his dining room.

Last year, Taylor brough his high-energy, fun-filled DJ show to the Berks Jazz Fest, performing two nights at the DoubleTree by Hilton Reading / Cheers Lounge. He was a big hit and back for both weekends for the 2017 fest.

In 2004 Taylor had his first Old School Party at a large dance hall and drew over 200 people because of his marketing and promotion skills. A niche was filled: good music, nice venue, good food and good people.

In the beginning, Taylor hired DJs to provide the music; however, people wanted to hear him. He has been the DJ at his parties ever since.

And now he’s throwing the Cheers Lounge Party both Friday and Saturday nights during the Berks Jazz Fest.
