He’s spun for some of the top music artists in the world, and now KnowleDJ is making his way to Vernon.
The official DJ for the Jay-Z and Beyonce On The Run Tour in 2014, KnowleDJ has just recently backed up The Weeknd on the Toronto hitmaker’s epic 30-city Madness tour of North America.
He is making his way to the stage at Vernon’s 2929 Nite Club Feb. 12 for a special edition of #WTF (Welcome To Friday), hosted by local DJ/producers Kyle English (aka Ecklipze) and Darren Walmsley (H2O).
“My life has been crazy,” said KnowleDJ when asked about his experience of touring with arguably the biggest names in the music industry at the moment.
KnowleDJ promises to bring an unforgettable party to clubgoers, with a short western Canada tour that also takes him to Kamloops, Calgary and Vancouver.
While some DJs just spin, KnowleDJ does some crazy stuff.
One example includes having an entire club sing the national anthem. He is also one of the few DJs who can entice college girls, hipsters, cowboys, and business women out on the same dance floor, screaming for more.
KnowleDJ has built a massive following from his residencies at some of the hottest clubs in Las Vegas to more than 50 cities worldwide. His original productions, mind blowing mashes, and live shows are testament to his success.
“His mixes inspire people to do everything from car dancing in Pintos to doing the Egyptian in Peru,” reads www.knowledj.net.
Welcome To Friday (#WTF) is a recurring event at 2929 Nite Club. It provides a welcoming atmosphere and a blend of classic club anthems, hip hop, EDM, R&B, Top 40/party rock remixes, and a dab of trap and house music.
“It’s the perfect setting to celebrate birthdays, stagettes/stag parties, and any other special occasion,” said Walmsley,
Launched on Jan. 22, #WTF has already given away more than $400 worth of cash and prizes from local sponsors, including a jewelry gift set valued at more than $240 from JC Bradley Jewellers, a $150 cut and colour hair package donated by Ashlee June Nelson (aka the Dreaded Damsel) at The Scarlet Studio and Artisan Market, as well as gift certificates from Subcity Vernon. Okanagan Skate Company has also come on board as a sponsor, said Walmsley.
“The thing that everyone is talking about is the Wheel Of Fortune that has cash and prizes just waiting to be won before midnight. We also have a main prize draw at midnight valued at $150,” he said. “We just want to give Vernon a fun, safe place to let loose.”
Doors to the Friday, Feb. 12 special event with KnowleDJ open at 9:30 p.m. 2929 Nite Club is located at 29th Street and 29th Avenue in downtown Vernon. Cover charge is $5 (free for those wearing a onesie before 11 p.m.)
