Started DJ’ing in private clubs (as they were called in those daze) during the late 70’s. What a great time learning to spin on stretched-out belt-driven turntables, mixing those “real drum” artists, using old matchbox covers pressed ever so carefully alongside the edges of those wobbly records. Honestly, I’d have it no other way. Born and raised in Edmonton Alberta (Canada) I played at the Roost with occasional spots at the iconic club Flashback. I learned a personal style before deciding to move out to the west coast where everything seemed larger than life (being a prairie boy and all...).
Shortly thereafter, I became a resident DJ at The Queens Head, PALS then Rumours spinning vinyl over 13 or so years. I had acquired many nicknames along the way such as Prima Donna (Roost) or Kelly Marie (Queens Head)… in fact, the spelling of my first name was done intentionally to distinguish me from other club personalities and that change has served me well along this bouncy disco-beat journey. However, in this industry, it was felt, at some point in time, that one must make a way for aspiring minds that have “the calling” and as such can breathe a newer essence onto a willing dance floor...
After several years being in Toronto, I eventually acquired “itchy finger syndrome” which any DJ knows as being an expected occurrence especially while listening to others spinning! This time around, I limited myself to not being resident anywhere and focused on doing guest spots, events and\or the afterhours scene. I became known in the city for Homo-Hops, M-Hole and the notorious Playground for the wee hours. Considered off the beaten path by my peers... which is where I am content to be.
I play on several Internet radio stations as well as now am the owner of WEHO Vibes.
