Erika Smith is a refreshing blend of many things impressive. As our sole female MC/Entertainer here at Spinners, it is no mystery why clients refer and request her as much as they do. Besides being beautiful and charismatic, she skillfully blends her skills as a professional wedding coordinator, MC, and Singer to bring a unique and often unparalleled vibe to any event. Most frequently, clients hire her to sing their Ceremony/Cocktail Hour either solo or with her “old Hollywood vintage styled” Jazz Duo, Afterglow. At your Reception, she takes over and MCs your formalities and packs dance floors with one of our talented DJ’s. During dinner, she can sing to the tracks of a variety of favorite jazz standards, love songs, and songs from Postmodern Jukebox, a popular band known for reworking popular modern music into different genres such as swing and jazz.
Erika is also a professional actress, singer, and comedian, having appeared in dozens of notable film, television, and theatre projects, including Darren Aronofsky’s Academy Award Winning masterpiece, “The Wrestler.” To top it all off, she’s a damn good ukulele player, as well as one of the NJ/NY Metro Area’s most requested Marilyn Monroe impersonators. She has yet to MC a wedding as Marilyn Monroe.
She has performed for such celebrities as Sir Paul McCartney, Regis Philbin, Christian Louboutin, Donna Karan, Roberta Flack and Senator Andrew McDonald. She has made appearances for such high-end companies as Van Cleef and Arpels, Erno Laszlo, Saudi Petroleum, Empire Casino, Trump Towers, Apple Tours, New York’s Summer Concert Series, Authentic Brands Group, Smash Entertainment, A Gala Event and B.B. Kings. She traveled to Dubai to perform for the Sheik, headlined Egypt’s New Year’s celebration and at China’s Great Wall, as well as all over the United States and Canada.
Whether as one of New Jersey / New York’s most requested female MCs, a wedding singer, or a ceremony & Cocktail hour performer, Erika is a consummate entertainment and event professional who presents her talents with beauty, style and grace.
