Born in New York.  Raised on punk rock and independent music, Brett Patterson Lehrman (a.k.a. Cookie Policy) started DJing in 2007 as an outlet for his obsessive music collection.  Parties and the repertoire grew to a professional level shortly before his time spent at Sir Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for the Preforming Arts.  There, he furthered his musical prowess with studies in music composition, performance, audio engineering and music business.

For more than 10 years, Brett has performed countless professional gigs on stages at concert venues, in nightclubs + bars & over 110 of them have been for large scale weddings, private parties & corporate events.  The growing list of locations he has performed includes NY, Boston, CA, England and Argentina.

The mix is eclectic with groove at the heart. Dogma for any one style or genre is avoided along with cheese and attention grabbing on the mic. Intentional genre bending allows for a wide range to be covered, appealing to both fans of underground/independent music and those who just want to move.

While most genres can be requested for your venue or event, specialties include: Indie, Disco, Funk, Nudisco & Oldschool hip hop.

The Name

Inspired by Kool Keith’s tendency to pass out fresh slices of pizza to his audience, Brett is known to hand out freshly baked (sometimes on stage) cookies to nightlife audiences.
