I bring a modern but melodic set of NuDisco and Electronic Dance Music to a party. It's fairly happy and well liked by most. I also can mix in classic new wave, punk and disco (like Abba, Blondie, the Clash, Devo, Etc.) that a lot of Gen Xr's will appreciate. DJ JoJo is a femme persona determined to celebrate, encourage and support diversity of race, religion and orientation. My goal is to produce an environment that all people feel free to let loose.
Price Range: $100 and up
Gig Length: 60 - 240 minutes
Without plan other than to provide - JoJo finds life energy in music, dance and expression and wants to give back. JoJo (Jonathan) was born in Pontiac, Michigan shortly after the invention of the synthesizer. His parents encouraged piano lessons for all of his siblings so he was immersed in a house filled with music daily. He also grew up with a lot of animals like cats Sam, Spooky and Breeze, the golden retriever Socrates and other random rodents with fur. These relationships with soft, smaller brained organisms, an understanding of how much love they need, mixed with a new determination to embrace our differences and celebrate our individuality now all manifest as DJ JoJo. DJ JoJo likes a four to the floor foundation underneath transcendent soft and smooth melodies - music that hopefully energizes your body, makes you dance and frees your spirit.
