DJ Bobby West started off his career over 10 years ago on the East Coast, and has since DJed hundreds of events across the country, from clubs to weddings. Since relocating to Austin in 2011, Bobby has played a range of venues in the Red River District, 6th Street, The Warehouse District, & East Austin, as well as several private events with promotion companies such as Knuckle Rumbler. Bobby also holds multiple weekly & monthly residencies in Austin playing Hip Hop, R&B, Neo Soul, Dance Rock, and more. What sets Bobby apart, though, isn't just what he plays - but how. Bobby manages to strike the often difficult balance between accessibility and creativity: keeping the crowd engaged with familiar music, while at the same time keeping things fresh and interesting by mixing in new or less frequently played tracks. In short, you get a unique experience that's still responsive to the audience and event.
