It wasnât until 16 & after he fell in love with Dance music he was offered his first residency at the Old Rouge in Antrim in 1993 playing to 200 people each week. From this he created a large fan base of regular followers and it wasnât long before he was guest in other clubs and venues such as FERGIES birthplace Airport 2000 & at the Stables in Antrim.
