MUSIC | JON PLEASED WIMMIN | FRIDAY 19 OCTOBER

House classics, Nu Disco and Electro from the Cream and Ministry of Sound DJ who rose to fame in the 1990s with his flamboyant cross dressing and stylish presence

In the 80s his 3 piece Cabaret act ‘The Pleased Wimmin’ was spotted performing at Kinky Gerlinky by Danny Rampling who immediately invited them to dance at his club.

Then as a DJ, Jon warmed up for Danny Rampling in Ibiza. An immediate hit with the crowd, requests for guest slots came fast, so he became a regular at clubs such as Fabric, Back To Basics, Pacha, Ministry of Sound, Cream, and Renaissance.

Jon has DJed across the world at places including Ibiza, Buenos Aires, Japan, Australia, South Africa,  and Singapore.

Jon’s highly stylised dress sense and musical skills made him a regular fixture in DJ Magazine’s top 100 best DJs in the world, coming 5th in 1996.

He has released numerous records, including two UK top 30 hits on the Perfecto label (‘Passion’ & Give Me Strength’) along with releases in 2004 on the Wall of Sound label under the moniker ‘The Visitor’.

Jon has played alongside high profile acts including Pete Tong, 2ManyDJs, Jacques Lu Cont, Danny Tenaglia, Sasha, Carl Cox, Andrew Weatherall, Boy George, Sister Bliss and Erol Alkan.

Jon’s current sets are diverse including music from Purple Disco Machine, Hoxton Whores, Late Night Tough Guy, Soulwax, Lifelike, and Todd Terje.
