Clint Pittenger, AKA, DJ Kristian Starr, an eighties teen, born and raised around Los Angeles, was influenced by his father, Mel Harris Pittenger, who worked for several motion picture companies. Inspired by screenwriters to write and possibly get his foot in the door, Clint found the music scene and began playing guitar and bass in local garage glam bands. As the music scene toughened, he discovered DJing and found his love spinning at the night clubs. Eventually, he met Angela, who would later become his wife, and moved to Tucson in 1996 to help his mother and grandmother. Once settled, Clint began to build his DJ business, Starlightdeejays, and for twenty-five years has played at weddings, parties, and more. While DJing, he met screenwriters and musicians and continued writing and working on a music project called “aghostinblackclothes,” _located on bandcamp. The style is electronic ambient and has gained a lot of positive feedback from all over the world. To this day, Clint and Angela continue to work as a team for weddings and events. She handles all the photography and their son, Noah, assists, and sometimes is the videographer. You can find them at www.starlightdeejays.com.
