DJ MANIFEST DJ, Promotions, Music Enthusiast “DJ Manifest” aka John Cobb hails out of St. Louis, Missouri, a city known for its soul-filling music scene. The grandson of famed Jazz quartet “Quartette Trés Bien” and “Jumpin’ Willie” Cobbs has the ability to change the atmosphere of a room from the minute he plays his first selection. Manifest began learning crafting his own unique sound as a sound engineer for “The Caesars” in 2002 and began DJing in 2005 as the opening act for Julius the Mad Thinker at local House music hotspot, Upstairs Lounge. Manifest spent the following years learning the art of the DJ and is a constant student of the “mix”. For him, music is a FEELING and how your soul is affected by it. The life changing nuance that he brings is unmatched and it “manifests” itself from a true love of music and his craft. As a fan of the House Music culture, Manifest immediately gravitated to the sounds of Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan, Ron Hardy, and Kerri Chandler. He implemented those influences through a residency at Urban Lounge called “The Amigos”, with fellow St. Louisan veteran DJ Dino STL. The Amigos crew has grown to include DJ’s Kevin Brock, The DJ JMO, Willpower, DJ AJ, Coach “B” and Don Tinsley (Monad). Manifest is also part of the “Soulition DJ’s” crew, with notable members “Nappy” DJ Needles, DJ Reminesce, Francis Jaye, and Applejack and “STL Househeadz” with DJ AJ and DJ OMB. No matter the genre, tempo, or style, DJ MANIFEST will have you in a place where only he knows the direction…where you are lost, and loving it!! DJ Manifest has held/holds the following residencies: “STL Houzeheadz” – Voce “The Amigos” – Urban Lounge “Speakerboxx” – Cherry Lounge “Whiskey Dicks” – Way Out Club “Foundations” – Thaxton Speakeasy “Deep Love” – 19th Street Art Gallery “Park Jam” – Annual event in Strauss Park.
