The most entertaining, and exhilarating DJ, DJ Mano began seriously developing his skills as a deejay at the tender age of eleven. “I’ve always had a connection with music, it moved me. It is my life.” DJ Mano is originally from Brooklyn, but also spent a lot of time in Greensboro, North Carolina. During high school, DJ Mano was known for wreaking havoc on the turntables for area block parties and events. His mix tapes were hot around Greensboro and this landed him a mix-show for a local college radio station. “It was then that I met T-Luv (formerly Timbaland's deejay). He took me under his wing and helped me improve my skills.” DJ Mano went on to attend Shaw University in Raleigh, NC where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Communications. His freshman year of college, he deejayed with DJ Lord Jazz and the Lords of the Underground. He continued to rock college parties and corporate benefits. While at Shaw University, DJ Mano took television production classes and had the brilliant idea of incorporating his mixes with video, creating his own music videos. From here “Barnett Entertainment” was formed, which DJ Mano owns and operates. This new venture allowed DJ Mano to not only become an entrepreneur, but more independent—spinning hip-hop, reggae, house, and R&B for the masses. He was a part of the lengendary Mix Show WNAA 90.1 MASSIVE HOUSE MIX. Barnett Entertainment also opened up the door for video production jobs throughout the country.
DJ Mano’s Most recent ventures includes an Aids Benefit Show with Queen Latifah and some Def Poets, to being the DJ for the Tony Award winning Def Poetry Jam at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. Also doing many comedy shows at Carolines on Broadway with nationally known Comedian Shang. Making the first of many BET’s RAP CITY appearances in 2005. Also on Scratch Academy’s roster of Great DJ’s doing many events for them. DJ Mano has a dangerous touch for rocking diverse crowds. He is a performer, no stranger to ambition. From his uncanny ability to choose a crowd-pleasing sound to his unique style. DJ Mano is a genius on the turntables and exemplifies nothing but true, pure talent
