Make an appearance at ZuZu‘s tonight for a killer performance by Mmmmaven grad KC! KC has been attending the Zuesday Queer Dance Party on-and-off every week for the past year and is finally ready to take the stage herself. KC took a break from her busy beat-spinning schedule to discuss her DJ career, musical education, and upcoming performance with me.
Can you briefly explain the progression of your musical career—how did you end up where you are now?
I guess a lot of it happened kind of by chance and by being open to trying new things. I don’t know what I want to do with my life but I know what I enjoy and what makes me happy, and I want to align these two things.
Dance music makes me happy, and I have always been curious about how DJing worked and I wanted to try it.
Now that I know that I like it and I know what I’m doing, I want to keep trying to book gigs at nights and events that are special to me.
How did Mmmmaven help guide you on your path to musical expression?
The class was like learning 10 years of experience in two months. It was really awesome to have a space where you can be with other people who are just starting out so you can all learn together and learn from each other. Being in a class with other beginners really fostered community support. Teachers were patient and knowledgeable, and the staff is really encouraging.
Please tell me a little more about tonight’s performance. Are you excited/nervous? What do you have in store for us?
I am both excited and nervous. I think a lot of co-workers and friends are going to come that love to dance, so you can expect a great crowd that appreciates music. My set consists of songs that are really special to me, as well as some of my friend’s favorite songs. Expect a vibrant and energetic dancefloor, with amazing sets to follow mine by Bianca Oblivion and Justin.
There you have it folks. Lace up your dancing shoes and come see KC perform tonight at Zuesday! … we can’t wait to see what tricks she has up her sleeve.
