In 2011, a sold out MAXIM Magazine New Year's Eve party at the Chinese Theatre and a residency at Ecco Ultra Lounge (now named Couture) in Hollywood, California, launched Romy's professional DJ career. Since then, Romy has continued to play at various venues both in and outside California. He has also earned the opportunity to play music festivals such as Coachella, Lightning In A Bottle and Chalice Festival. His DJ success has resulted in playing alongside names such as Big Gigantic, Griz, Marques Wyatt, Capital Cities, The Gaslamp Killer, Cassian, and Mark Lewis, among others. His event resume also includes multiple performances at Burning Man 2013 & 2014 and a recent 2014/2015 tour through Yucatan and Quintana Roo, Mexico. For handling his own bookings and promotion, Romy Ancona has advanced very quickly in the entertainment industry as an independent artist.
