|About||Disc Jockey, Video Jockey, Communication Designer|
DJ Gavan Bright is a man with a career spanning two decades and a formidable cluster of residencies both past and present. I was a resident for the Wickham Hotel and that 29 Club in the valley.
Gavan has continually played those special parties that only history remembers by those select few who were there, including Two Dog's Wet Dreaming in Byron Bay with LSU lighting and the early Tropical Fruits Parties from 1996.
His presence has been strong, regularly playing at the country's most Gay parties: ALSO's Resurrection, Sydney Lesbian and Gay Mardi Gras, Inquisition, Sydney Pride NYE and Tropical Fruits 1996-2003. On top of these he can also point to appearances at high profile events including M.A.S.C, Mancamp, Frisky and Hand in Hand. Gav has billed with Victor Calderone, Thunderpuss, Alan Thompson, DJ Chip, Anne Savage, Trade, Alex Taylor, Sveta, Wayne G, Rob Davis, Luke Leal, Steven Sonius, Lexy Bradfield and the late Mandy Rollins.

Certainly no 'Johnny-come-lately' mixing for fame, its all about music.
Gav's vibrant energy remains undiluted behind the digital DJ format, blending the beats of today and tomorrow's dance floors with the vocals and melodies of the records that have stood the test of time, he blurs the lines between live producer and DJ but in a manner which doesn't weigh too heavily on the clubbing experience. Always the consummate professional, his crowd pleasing style does not play to a formula and never fails to give a dance floor the impetus it deserves - in the words of Aretha Franklin, 'R.e.s.p.e.c.t'.
