DJ HEAVY belongs to a class of DJs who bring more than just music to a party. An expert at creating the right experience for any venue or party, Heavyʼs confidence comes from his undeniable ability to set the decks on fire. As a child with a solid musical foundation built from the stacks on stacks of records in his fatherʼs collection, DJ Heavy was captivated by the weekend DJs in Philadelphia. Mix show DJs such as Cosmic Kev, Doc B, Jazzy Jeff, and DJ AM ignited the spark he needed to craft his own style and sound. In 2009, DJ Heavyʼs talents led him to join Clear Channelʼs WSNX 104.5 Mixinʼ Mafia team. Heavy brings his own deeply-felt brand of fun and energy to genres from rap to house, soul and funk. As one of The Midwestʼs most in-demand DJs, Heavy has opened for concerts, other well recognized DJs, as well as top artists such as B.oB, Yung Joc, Slick Rick, Talib Kweli, Biz Markie, & Will.i.Am, to name a few. DJ Heavy currently holds multiple residencies in Chicago including TAO Chicago, Bounce Chicago, and Underground.
