Herby has taken his DJ craft to the next level by offering amazing sets of mixing and scratching “LIVE” all genres of music from 80s, 90s and current music. He’ll mix it all and make it sound SMOOV!
Born and raised in Ravenna, Herby Loftin has been active in just about everything from sports to music. After graduating from Ravenna High in 2003, he went on to play collegiate football at Thiel College. All his life he has been a leader and an over-achiever, always looking to do his best in everything!
Music has played a huge part throughout Herby’s life; he has always been a few steps ahead when it comes to music knowledge. Before he got his start as a DJ, Herby would naturally find his way to the main source of music at any event he attended and start playing music for the crowd. Growing up listening to everything from Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Prince, Madonna, Kenny Chesney and The Police to Jay-Z, Herby has a wide range of music to provide for any event.
Herby started DJing in 2007 in a nightclub in Akron, just playing songs off of a laptop…the response from the crowd was great! He soon turned this hobby into a career, DJing clubs, weddings, parties and any event that needed a DJ. He also took on the stage name of “DJ Smoov,” and after years of practice and gigs he has become one of Ohio’s most sought after DJs for all types of events. Recently, his recommendations have earned him jobs for celebrities and professional athletes and he was the featured DJ for Bruno Mars’ 24k Magic World Tour Pre-Show VIP Parties for select dates.
After interning with DJ Scott Jones, Herby decided to go full-speed ahead taking on more weddings and joining the great team of DJs here at Cleveland Music Group.
If you’re looking for that one SPECIAL TOP-NOTCH DJ to take your wedding or event to the next level with excellent planning, professionalism and excitement, look no further than Mr. Herby Loftin, aka DJ Smoov!
