I was inspired to DJ the first time I saw Georgie Porgie doing a gradeschool gig in 1983. I was fortunate to know him and get a chance to see what it was like on the wheels of steel.
After seeing Kenny “Jammin” Jason and the Hot Mix 5 performing at a large dance party at Chicago’s Navy Pier (around 1986), I was convinced that ‘spinning’ was for me.
In 1988, I started a mobile DJ company, while at the same time doing club gigs under the name Special Fx ALX. Starting when WBMX was the defacto mix station, and B96 was competing with Z95 for the Chicago airwaves, I was spinning at places such as Bagwells, PS Chicago, Eddie Rockets, Fiddlesticks, Prime Minister and other suburban and downtown clubs, in addition to starting guest spots on local college stations.
After an extended break from the music scene, I spent time in the “real world” and realized that music and djing would always be a part of my life. I vowed to get back on the path of the righteous, and start spinning again. After 10 years off, the now ‘Geezer’ has risen from life support to reunite with the current music scene.
“Don’t forget your roots but look to the future by integrating old and new in one music orgy.” I have since begun the journey of getting back to one of the few places outside of family that I truly experienced a love transcending anything phyiscal – MUSIC.
