DJ Spotlight: Ed Smooth at the Red Room
If you've frequented a casino beach bar during the past couple of months, or even found yourself cutting the rug inside the Casbah Nightclub at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City, it's almost certain you've danced to the sounds of DJ Ed Smooth.
"I have been DJing for more than 15 years," Smooth says, and it's a habit that's hard to break. "I have tried to stop (DJing) a few times, to try something new, but it never sticks. I just love it too much."
All that love shows in his live performance. Be sure to check him out this week starting Thursday, Aug. 11, at The Red Room inside the Golden Nugget. You also can see him throughout August at venues such as Casbah at Trump Taj Mahal, Toga Bar inside Caesars Atlantic City, X-Bar inside Harrah's Resort and at The Trump Plaza Beach Bar.
What To Expect: No two shows are ever the same with Smooth, as he describes his style of DJing as "open format." Anything goes, as long as the crowd is happy.
What Moves Ed: Smooth has a long list of musical influences, including Jam Master Jay, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Ron G, Young Wise and DJ Manny Styles, to name a few.
A Little History: He originally hails from New York, but has been a proud New Jerseyan for more than 10 years. He has called the Atlantic City nightlife scene home for the past two years.
