Once upon a time from the late 1970’s onward Steve Davis was most known for being a quiet, robotic type snooker player who won most of the tournaments he entered. Steve dominated the 80’s in snooker and made many records in the game. They nicknamed him Steve “interesting” Davis because many believed his personality was as dry as a Christmas turkey cooked by an overcautious grandmother. But who would of thought that decades later at 58 years of age that he is now introduced as superstar DJ Steve Davis!!
Granted, his personality has come out over the years, but even during the 80’s he was seen a popular character regularly appearing on TV shows and winning all the major snooker tournaments over and over. In those days, you either loved him or hated him for winning everything. Today though, i think most people appreciate what he did for snooker and the achievements he made and is still one of the most popular faces of the game.
In recent years since his drop in snooker rankings and admitting spending less and less time practicing, Steve has turned his attention to his other passion, music or more specifically, electro style dance music. And who would of thought that he is now making a name for himself on that scene. Since retiring in April 2016 Steve is no longer regarded as the snooker player, but now regarded as DJ Steve Davis.
When i first heard of him being called DJ Steve Davis, i was a little surprised if im honest, so i decided to do some investigation and guess what, he’s actually quite good at being DJ Steve Davis!! He even has a radio show on Phoenix FM since 1996 pumping out suburbia/electro tunes. DJ Steve Davis even has articles written about him in the likes of Mixmag (a popular Dj-ing magazine) and doing sets on Bloc weekender as well as other sets around the country.
Now that Steve has retired from the professional snooker scene, i look forward to hearing more about him (not from a snooker perspective alone), but from the music side of things.
Good on ya Steve
