Ohio-based DJ Smoov is one of America’s most in-demand DJ talents, performing regularly in some of the biggest nightclubs across the map.  He graces the turntables with residencies in Miami, Las Vegas, New York and of course, Cleveland.

Smoov (Herby Loftin) has spun private events for some of the most prominent celebrities including LeBron James, Jimmy Fallon, James Harrison, Rock Dunbar, Victoria’s secret, Next Clothing and Macy’s just to name a few.  He also donates his services to multiple charities helping organizations raise money for a variety of worthy causes.

In March of this year, Smoov won the Barley House Spinfest 2014 DJ competition in Cleveland, competing against other DJs to win a trip to DJ in Miami for Spring Break.

Smoov says, “I love to become an artist, painting a picture when I DJ.  If people really pay Screen Shot 2014-04-30 at 11.49.10 AMattention to the detail that I put into my craft, that’s one of the major reasons I do this and love it.  With every client and room being so different from gig to gig, you must be able to bring diversity and fun in every set to connect with your audience to give them one amazing party.”

And Smoov loves using CHAUVET DJ gear.  He regularly uses a series of SlimPAR 56 fixtures, 2 Geyser RGBs, 2 Intimidator moving heads, 2 COLORstrips and a Swarm 5FX. He says, “I absolutely love all of my CHAUVET DJ gear. It is the best on the market for reliability, durability and it’s up to date with innovation. I honestly feel like nothing compares to their products and they keep outdoing theirselves every year with new products. My personal favorite is the Geyser RGBs.  I love to hit them at a high energy part of a song.  The crowd goes crazy over them.”
