Women's Shelter Housing Worker by day, DJ by night...
DJ Misty Rock n' Roll is a woman who lives up to her name. Voted Runner Up in NOW Magazine's 2015 and 2014 Reader's Choice Awards for best DJ, she's spent the last decade selecting the best in Rock n' Roll, Soul, Vintage R&B, Punk, Alt. Rock and everything in between at bars, clubs and across the airwaves in Toronto.
She's lit up the dance floors and bar stools at The Bovine Sex Club, Tattoo Rock Parlour and Disgraceland among others with her inimitable taste and style. Her monthly night at the legendary Queenshead was deemed Toronto's best Friday night party (Toronto Life Magazine 'Best of', 2006) and she DJ'ed for thousands at 2009's Calvalcade of Lights presented by Scotiabank in Toronto. Misty made even more noise in 2009 when she DJ'ed 'Radio Clash', Lee's Palace live to air club night on Edge 102 alongside host Josie Dye. She could also be heard turning it up to 11 every week on CKLN. 88.1 FM's 'The Demon's Lair' alongside The Blue Demon for five awesome years.
From 2010-2013, DJ Misty held weekly residencies at the Phoenix Concert Theatre, Bovine Sex Club, Velvet Underground and Barchef until she traded full time dj'ing for social/community work.
DJ Misty can now be found once a month DJ'ing at Handlebar, TILT Arcade Bar, and GOOD TIMES at Swan Dive. After all of that, she's still been known to make appearances as a guest DJ at some of her favourite events including, MOTOWN PARTY, dance parties at Stones Place and can also be found playing bass in the indie surf-pop band, GHOSTED.
She is also available for corporate and private parties and events.
