Let us spin your next event!
My name is Neil Slobin and I love playing and dancing to the old, classic tunes - Motown, Soul, Funk, Disco, and just about anything where you can move your feet to the beat. I feature tracks and playlists that are wide-ranging, including music by the Temptations, Eurythmics, Bee Gees, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Talking Heads, Aretha Franklin, La Bouche, Bruce Springsteen - and many others. My personal limitations - by age and taste - focus on 50's, 60's and 70's music, with forays into 80's and 90's tunes. I keep my comments during the event to a minimum, and the volume at a reasonable - though joyous! - level. By request, I can turn them both to 11....
Like many of my generation, I've had a long-time love affair with music and dancing, growing up during the golden age of popular music. In the mid-sixties, I was a dancer on the Big 5 TV Show, from which emerged the nationally syndicated Upbeat Show. The first dance party I produced and DJ'd was in 2003 at the Rockefeller Building in Cleveland Heights. In the year prior to Covid, I produced and DJ'd a number of very successful dances at Nighttown Restaurant, also in Cleveland Heights. Recently (Summer 2021), I DJ'd the Cleveland Heights Centennial Celebration - "Cheers for 100 Years!" - as well as Coventry Road's "Final Fridays" celebration.
Professionally, I teach college philosophy, though my main claim to fame is that I have a sandwich named after me at Tommy’s Restaurant on Coventry (the ‘NS’ - falafel and baba ghanouj).
I would love to host and DJ your private or public party! You can relax and enjoy yourself and leave the music to me. Of course, I also accept requests or playlists of your choosing.
