DJ Gavin Roy
The resume of DJ Gavin Roy reads like a what’s what of Santa Barbara dance venues, including Q’s, the Wildcat, Velvet Jones, Indochine, and even former hotspots Hades and Fathom. It’s no wonder that this founder of the Santa Barbara DJ Academy knows how to make a floor move. He wins over the masses by avoiding the overplayed music that “those other deejays” wouldn’t dare leave out and sneaking in some high-quality sonic candy.
Born and raised in Singapore, Gavin started dabbling in DJing as early as 15. Being president of both the AV Club and Student Council, it was inevitable that entertainment was a big part of every school event.
In 1990, when he finally turned 18 and was able to legally work the clubs, DJ Gavin Roy started his professional carrer as a nightclub DJ with the help of his friends who were already promoters in the exciting Singapore clubscene. He also started work with a mobile DJ company to build his experience in mobile DJing.
Between 1993 and 1995, Gavin spent most of his university years chasing the perfect beat in Perth, Western Australia. Gavin spent most of his college years DJing at several nightclubs and rave events.
In 1996, Gavin moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where he made a name for himself in some of the most competitive clubs in the US.
There he joined Groovepool DJ association and also became a club chart reporter for DMA magazine. DJ Gavin Roy is a respected member of The American DJ Association for mobile entertainers. He is also a member of Impact Record Pool.
Since 1999, Gavin has lived in sunny Santa Barbara, California, where he is the exclusive resident dj at the Wildcat Lounge and appears at some of the city’s most respected dance venues.
