If you love the nightlife, you’re likely familiar with the talented John Simmons, a local people mover with a sound for every dance floor. Simmons is now the backbone of CHILLED, a weekly Tuesday night series aiming to draw fans of downtempo, deep house and hip-hop grooves into the warm confines of Smart Bar. Special guests assist in providing a relaxed atmosphere of great music for no cover, making CHILLED the choice for a low-key evening or some after-dinner drinks. This week, Simmons welcomes the diverse deck styles of Hiroki, a veteran with deep crates and an impeccable ear for the groove. (John Alex Colon)
