The south’s most notorious dance floor assassin Beverly sKILLZ has developed a widespread reputation for murdering dance floors on a regular basis. Refusing to be tied down to any one genre, she has been known to throw down anything that will keep the crowd moving. She always keeps the crowd guessing blending electro, dubstep, hip hop, disco, house, pop, old school, rock, or whatever she feels like. Playing music that comes from within is just one of the reasons her sets are always killer. Another reason is her extensive background in battling. A gift for turntablism sets her apart from your average club deejay. She brings her craft to the club in a shock and awe style that won’t be easily forgotten. She’s thrown down some memorable sets with artists such as Skrillex, DJ AM, Jazzy Jeff, MSTRKRFT, Steve Aoki and Dayglow’s "Escape Reality" Tour. She also earned national acclaim by placing 3rd in DMC New Orleans 2011. She can be found most Saturday nights throwing down her signature style at Ampersand.
