Groomed in one of the epicenters of turntablism, Cerritos CA, it was a simple task for DJ 5ive to become the top seed in Las Vegas, Nevada. With DMC-caliber skills, impeccable mixing, a vast knowledge of music, and a love for Hip Hop that has spanned decades, DJ Five has emerged as the one definitive go to man in Sin City's burgeoning nightlife industry. He was voted the #1 DJ of 2004 in Las Vegas' eyes-and-ears, LAS VEGAS LIFE MAGAZINE. His eclectic tastes and eccentricities behind the wheels of steel soon brought him into the company of 5 other like-minded DJs: Vice, Graham Funke, OB-One, StoneRokk, and Cobra. Together, they formed the Abe Froman Showmen in an attempt to preserve DJ culture and restore the term to its original glory by promoting creative programming, good music, and competent mixing.
