DJ Greyboy spins into MontBleu Friday.

DJ Greyboy’s Hi Performance Tour makes a stop at Club Blu inside the Montbleu casino and resort on Friday, June 29, with a special appearance by Funk Shui.

Doors open at 10 p.m. for the music, with a special modeling and clothing product presentation at the Club Blu art gallery beginning at 9 p.m. Products from Neff headwear, Ed Hardy T-shirts, Shalom Clothing, Shut NYC and a Sidestreet Boutique photo shoot will be at the gallery.

Funk Shui will perform at 10:30 p.m., with DJ Greyboy at 11:30 p.m.

Greyboy released his first album, “Freestylin,” in 1993, when it became a surprise underground hit. It was a building block of the early hip-hop/jazz movement and was to be the foundation for a long recording career with Ubiquity Records. Since then he has released four more solo albums on Ubiquity and is currently working on his sixth.

Greyboy has collaborated with a number of different artists over the years, from hip-hop to jazz, including Fred Wesley of the J.B.’s, AG (Showbiz and AG), and is the founding member of the Greyboy All-Stars. His music has been featured in movies like “Get Shorty,” “Celtic Pride,” The Kelly Slater Surf Pro video game, Budweiser commercials, and he was handpicked to provide a mix CD for DC shoes in 2003. He also co-founded a hip hop record label called P-Jays with pro skater and MTV star Rob Dyrdek.

Over the years Greyboy has DJ’d in Japan, Europe, Australia, Canada and across the USA. His largest DJ gig was to 5,000 people in the countryside outside of Rome, and throughout the summer of 2003 he played to over 20, 000 people a night on tour with Ben Harper and Jack Johnson.
