Music fanatics in Southeast Texas are very familiar with nationally known spin guru Dee Jay Silver. In fact, Silver cut his teeth in Beaumont by spinning music to thousands of those who came to dance at the Dixie Dance Hall on Crockett Street.

Now, Silver has moved up in the DJ scene with residencies in Las Vegas playing such hotspots as LAX in the Luxor and Rehab Pool Party at Hard Rock Hotel, while becoming the first artist in his realm to sign to a major Nashville record label contract with RCA Nashville/Sony Music.
