New York City native DJ Don Pablo spins his original mixes throughout the Tampa Bay area. He discovered a passion for music at a very young age, and has been deejaying since he was 13 years old. He applies his musical knowledge to every setting, reading the energy of a space and then playing upbeat mixes to appeal to his crowd. “It’s all about the ladies," he always says. "If the ladies are happy, then everyone is happy.” This philosophy, he says, proves to be true for every venue – from bars and restaurants to nightclubs and sporting events, once the ladies start dancing, the rest of the crowd follows.
