DJ Jo Bunny DJ Profile

DJ - London Based - found mostly at Bar Wotever, Royal Vauxhall Tavern and weddings!

 

1. What was your first DJ event?

My first private gig was at a friends birthday party. I took to it straight away. My first public gig was at Bar Wotever, then at Central Station in King's Cross. There was an opportunity to DJ in the early slot for an hour... the rest is history! 

2. How long have you been a DJ?

8 years.

3. How would you describe your DJ style?

Happy, bouncy and I aim to fill the floor. I play the songs where people sing along to as well as dance. Everything from 50's to current. Once behind the deck I don't stop moving!

4. What nights do you currently DJ at?

I am a regular at Bar Wotever and many Wotever World nights around London. I am also the regular at Pout once a month. I played at the Retro bar for 2013 and can often be found at a wedding, birthday party or barmitzvah!

5. What genres of music do you play?

50's to current day. My business card says from Streisand to Sex Pistols but that is only a thimble full of what I play. I play the records that people sing to, disco, 80's, pop, soul, R&B, Motown, indie, rock and much more. 

6. What is your all-time favourite track?

Only one track?! You drive a hard bargain!! All time fave - Proud Mary - Ike and Tina Turner. Starts off slowly and by the end everyone is in a wild frenzy!

7. What is your guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is a nice warm brandy

8. How and why did you become a DJ?

How I became a DJ was from playing with a friends DJ deck at private parties. I have been into music since childhood having been part of a youth programme on a local radio station in Portsmouth on a Saturday morning. I was given the chance to do the open deck slot at Bar Wotever and have never looked back. Once I started at playing friends parties and Bar Wotever I knew I wanted to continue. Why I became a DJ, well apart from loving music - I was inspired by my Dad. He was a professional DJ for over 30 years and is my DJ hero! I think I have a similar style to him, getting the crowd going, he was on the local radio station and it seemed natural to take over the DJ reigns from him. He has given me some of his original vinyl including a blue vinyl version of ELO's Mr Blue Sky. We have shared a DJ slot together at a private party! 

9. What has been your best DJ gig so far?

I don't think I have one in particular. The opportunity to DJ at the Scala was amazing but there have been so many when I have got a total high from the event. To look up and suddenly see bar staff dancing behind and on the bar and a packed venue singing along. 

10. When you're not a DJ what events do you like to go to?

On my time off I support my fellow DJs at their gigs and events, see performances all over London, (some of them are my friends) I enjoy going to events not for women only but for all those that identify as queer. I also love a good drag show!
