AKA The Bearded DJ – Eric Smith joined the CLE Music Group sales office in 2017 and as a part of the talent roster in 2011 as a DJ. He spent two years as an apprentice to Scott Jones before becoming a lead DJ.
His approach-ability, sense of humor, and knack for letting the music speak for itself along with heavy involvement in Cleveland’s social media community (@thebeardeddj) all contributed to him becoming one of the industry’s most requested wedding DJs.
Eric holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Mercyhurst University. His relationship management background in the corporate and start-up worlds here in Cleveland have proven to translate very well into the events industry. He is also a REALTOR on Ohio’s #1 real estate team! One thing is certain, Eric has dedicated his professional life to making his clients’ lives happier and run as smoothly as possible no matter the situation and he is excited to be focusing that energy into weddings and events full time.
When he’s not out DJing or in the office, he spends most of his time with his wife and their new baby boy at home in Lakewood or out and about enjoying all the awesome things to do in Cleveland. Aside from his family and music, he enjoys reality tv, podcasts, all the cheese and coffee, beard maintenance, and the Oxford comma.
