I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be spending 3 weeks in Germany this fall, performing in Würzburg, Berlin and Hamburg. I’ll be playing some parties, sure, but my primary reason is to perform soundtracks for live improvised theatre! Improvising on turntables and a mixer, I score live shows while some of the world’s best [...]
I adore music from the 1930s and ’40s. The raw tone, the (often) hilarious lyrics [see: "Grandpa Stole My Baby" or "Walk Right In, Walk Right Out"], the musicality. Jump Blues, Boogie Woogie, Rhythm & Blues… these genres aren’t all that known anymore, so playing a party that is just Roy Brown and Big Mama [...]

I started a DJ School just over a year ago. It’s not made of bricks and mortar, but it does have students. Last year, I had ten women in the first-ever class and the results were incredibly rewarding. We had a recital and they were brave enough to perform their brand new skills in front [...]
You know about this, right? (I’d recommend making this full screen and having a dance party. Immediately.) Well, this Saturday we get our gossip on and we’re having a kiki! With my pal DJ J. Jackson (from “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” fame) and special guest in from Toronto, Mizz Brown (known for her parties [...]
Come check out the next magazine launch party for Border Crossings, the ground-breaking art and culture magazine based in Winnipeg. I’m really looking forward to kicking it up a notch with some dancing! Also, I have it on strong authority that there will be delicious food and drinks. Thursday, December 13 264 McDermot Ave 8 [...]
I’ve had the fortune of teaming up with two of my very favourite organizations — Graffiti Art Programming and Art City — for a night of super fun… and you’re invited! So let’s make it happen. The staff and volunteers at GAP and Art City are going to be competing in a mind-blowing talent show. [...]
