DJ Victoria Anthony 

Expect to hear an array of fun party tunes when transgender DJ, Victoria Anthony is behind the decks. An exclusive fusion of club mixes, fresh pop and timeless tunes. She also doubles up as a showgirl and likes to keep both her DJ sets and shows sexy, camp, and energetic. Her passion for music developed at a young age with the encouragement from her mother to join local youth entertainment groups. This led to the completion of her Bachelor of Music (Honors) degree at The University of Western Sydney in 2011, majoring in Musicology.

It came time to celebrate her graduation from university. Victoria found herself out and about on the Sydney gay scene every weekend. Dancing in the darkness until dawn, to all the fabulous tunes played by the local gay and lesbian DJ’s. She always left the clubs feeling amazed by the DJ’s who brought such a great atmosphere to the clubs. This inspired her to save up for her own DJ decks and enter a DJ competition at Stonewall Hotel in 2012 in which she was a finalist.

Shortly after, she spent 2013 in New York City where she was exposed to a variety of music, and the diverse nightlife the city has to offer. Through her participation in a nude music video shoot, she was given the unique opportunity to DJ regularly at raunchy gay and transgender sex parties in NYC. Returning to Sydney in 2014, she has played at the Mardi Gras after party at Moore Park and a variety of clubs in Sydney. All she ever wants is to be happy, and share her passion for performance and DJing with a fun crowd.

Victoria won Sydney’s Favorite DJ at the 2015 DIVA Awards

DJ Simon Rooke

In 2015 Simon decided to take his DJing from being a hobby and turn it into something far more serious by entering the Mardi Gras Spin-Off DJ competition.

After being selected as one of eight finalists – and the challenge of then playing a tight ten minute set in the Stonewall VIP Bar, also broadcast on OX Live radio, for the finals of the competition – Simon was selected as a winner which saw him immediately go on to play on the 2015 Mardi Gras Sunset Cruise.

Simon has since become a resident DJ at the very venue that hosted the event that he won: Oxford Street’s iconic Stonewall Hotel, and can be heard playing the freshest commercial tracks and favourites in the Public Bar and delighting audiences with banging vocal, progressive and electro house in the Cocktail and VIP bars upstairs.

In May 2015, Simon played alongside Sydney legend DJ Sveta at the ‘YES to Equality’ party hosted by Sydney Queer Irish on the historic night of the Irish marriage equality referendum.

Two other Sydney favourites, Kinselas Hotel and Beresford Sundays, have also been hosts to Simon’s sets.

With a lifelong love of music and a background in Engineering, Simon revels in DJing as both an artistic and technical pursuit, with the enjoyment of the audience always the foremost priority, whether it be cruisy deep house for evening cocktails or floor-shaking club anthems that get the crowd’s hands in the air in the small hours of the morning.

DJ Ryan John

Ryan John is a Stonewall regular, pumping tunes for Wednesday night’s Malebox and keeping crowds dancing late into Friday and Saturday nights.

DJing for Ryan John switched from an at-home hobby to public performances at the end of 2015. A series of DJing competitions gave him the boost needed to break into the world-famous venues of Sydney and beyond. His appearances at semi regular parties and weekend venues still adds a refreshing energy to exciting nights out.

Ryan John’s style is varied – while he most enjoys playing circuit beats, his ability to find dance and house remixes of popular songs both new and old will blow you away. While dancing to all things house is the virtue of the Oxford St regular, Ryan John’s taste spans from circuit and progressive house right through to deep house, tech house and even techno.

Ryan John describes DJing as a creative outlet, with DJ hours being added to the ‘life’ side of the work-life balance. Every shift gives him enjoyment and that’s audible in his music selection and attention to technical detail.
