Out For A Spin
(Published in the February 2011 issue)
By day, Jason Guillory is the marketing and entertainment director for two popular bar/restaurant/nightclubs, The Fleetwood in the East Village and The Beachwood in Pacific Beach. That’s his new gig.
After work, when the sun goes down, Guillory transforms into DJ G-Roy to do what he’s done for more than a decade-work the dance floor with a hybrid of house music and hip-hop.
“Wu Tang was a big influence early on,” G-Roy says. “I also really like the Beastie Boys’ old stuff. The Chemical Brothers helped get me into DJing and electronic music, but I love finding new groups, too. F#ck, if Coachella was around when I was younger, I would have had a front row seat.”
PacificSD: Where are you from?
G-Roy: Born in Dallas, lived in Sacramento, grew up in Seattle and have resided in San Diego for 14 years.
Who’s the best DJ on the planet?
G-Roy: DJ AM was the best DJ, ever.
Do you tear it up on the dance floor?
G-Roy: I dance like a raver brat from 1998 having too much fun.
Do you play musical instruments other than the turntables?
G-Roy: I can play the piano very well.
Would you be mine?
G-Roy: My Valentine is Ashley, who supports me more than anyone and gives up a lot for me to have my dream career.
