DJ Chris Hodgson "Deejay Smeejay" - 5.0 out of 5 based on 5 votes

Representing Florida to the Keys for over 20 years!

You could be forgiven for thinking that Deejay Smeejay is new on the scene with residencies at hip haunts such as Bar 721 and Kill Your Idol or perhaps you remember him from his Hustler Party in the side room of Liquid or the madness that was Lola Tuesdays over a decade ago.

But to hear Smeejay tell it, his career started at age 5, when he approached his mom and asked her to buy him his first record, Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue". His love affair with Pop culture and how it has been reflected in contempory music has led to a collection of over 27 thousand records and and almost as many CDs. He, himself, considers himself as much a curator and historian as a DJ.

His lineage stretches from Glam Rock and Disco roots to the New Wave and New Romanticism of the 80s to the very beginnings of House music itself. As South Beach exploded Smeejay exploded right along with it. With his infamous Go-Go residencies at Warsaw, Paragon and Torpedo, the pillars of South Beach's early clubs, DJing seemed the next logical step.

Liquid, Lola, Beauty Bar, Flute, Pop Life, Automatic Slims and Marlin Mondays were his icing and all the while his cake was his 5 and 10 year residencies at the Ritz Carlton and the Loews respectively. From birthday parties at Broadway Theaters, to BLT in San Juan's Ritz Carlton to a week of parties on privately chartered Little Palm Island, Smeejay knows how to get himself around. Having bounced back from a cancer scare in 2009 Smeejay once again tapped into his greatest strength, his creativity, and led the old Laundry Bar, now Bar 721, into a stellar Friday night that often sees more than 400 through the door in less than an hour.

His almost two year old Monday night party the gLITTER BOX at KILL YOUR IDOL has lived up to Smeejay's vision of a party not unlike Dennys at 6 a.m., filled with trannies and truckers. Oh, my! Just this week Smeejay teamed up with Michael M Singerpromoter for a great new Wednesday part at the Catalina Hotel on Collins, A Family Affair. Smeejay is determined to bring the fun back to South Beach and is doing so one successful party after another.
