DJ Manero was raised by the sounds, streets, and savvy one could only find in Brooklyn, NY. It’s not difficult to fathom that once he became old enough to hop on the subway alone he would venture out in to the other boroughs to explore the rest of the big city he calls home. Known to his family and friends as Roman Grandinetti, he acquired the DJ name Manero because of his striking resemblance to John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. The name stuck and holds true but it’s more than just a physical likeness - DJ Manero has an undeniable command of the dance floor each and every night. At an early age Manero developed an affinity for sneaker culture, but his passion for music won out when he traded three of his favorite pairs to pay for his first turntable. Before getting booked at venues such at 1Oak, The Eldridge, and Juliet, he began working at Universal Records. It was at Universal where he was afforded the opportunity to work with world famous artists such as Mark Ronson, Akon, Robin Thicke, 50 Cent and Swiss Beats. As more venues, people, and crowds experience Manero’s musical tastes, his career continues to grow more effervescent. Manero boasts a well-rounded appreciation for music and it’s evident on a nightly basis. On any given night, he’ll light up a venue with a seamless mix of “I Love Rock and Roll” and “Twist and Shout,” then have you walking hard to the Bee Gees. The oldies are just where he may begin. Manero is an avid fan of Calvin Harris and remains true to his roots in Brooklyn when he pulls out one of his many Jay-Z records. Manero’s ambition and passion for music have quickly imprinted his name on the NY nightlife scene.
