Alvin Shavers (Greensboro, NC) – The Drive

Ohio-born Alvin Shavers has been a house music DJ since he started playing music at venues in his home of Greensboro, North Carolina in 2008. Since then he has continued to play regularly around Greensboro, Raleigh, Charlotte and in Miami, FL. His sets fuse elements of deep, tech, soulful house, techno, funk, soul, and even punk into an unpredictable yet harmonious whole. He draws from a wide range of influences from Dennis Ferrer, Carl Cox, David Byrne, James Brown, and Kerri Chandler.

In addition, he has had the opportunity to open up for a variety of international headlining acts including J Rocc, Tony Humphries, Kenny Bobien, Louie Vega, Kenny Dope, Sonny Fodera, Mark Grant, Colette, Mark Farina, Starfoxxx, Bird Peterson and Julius the Mad Thinker.

Whether at an intimate nightclub or large-scale party, Alvin connects with listeners on a personal level. He truly loves every song he plays, whether a brand new deep house release or a soulful classic, and it shows. His enthusiasm for music is infectious, drawing listeners into his groove with his uncompromising ear for interesting sounds and thoughtful and often unconventional blends.
