NeonBunny started in the club and party scene in the late 90’s after moving to the Bay Area of California. From underground parties, to regular club events, to art events, to warehouse parties, to mega concerts and massives, the Bay Area had (and still has) it all. He quickly became involved with the local scene, first through event production, providing art and decor for events, and just being a part of different collectives producing events in the Bay Area.
NeonBunny plays a variety of styles of music, and performs on CDJs, but his favorite is always House and the many variations of House music. He tends to bounce around among similar genres in a dj set, with influences such as DJ Dan and Phunk Investigation for Funky House, Pleasurekraft and Riva Starr for Tech House, Jay Lumen and Format:B for Deep House, as well as some Electro House, Electro Swing, and any style of music that has a little bit of a funky edge to it. He’s always specializing in the newest music coming out, often playing releases before they hit beatport or itunes. He also has a talent for building a specialized set based on the specific theme of an event, and reading the crowd.
Burning Man and the local Burning Man community has always been a big inspiration, showing that nightlife culture could be interactive, creative, artistic. As one of the core producers of the now-defunct event Bunny Jam, a dance party staged in quirky, off-brand locations (like abandoned fire stations and a porn warehouse), he began developing the persona of NeonBunny. As a DJ, NeonBunny will sometimes perform in costume, adding a creative and visual element to his dj sets.
NeonBunny has performed at some of the top clubs in the Bay Area such as Public Works, the End Up, the Factory, Space 550, the Stud, 111 Minna Street, and underground/warehouse venues such as Otherworld, Nimby, the Porn Palace, and more. He’s also performed at a number of alternative venues such as the Reno Museum or Art, the San Jose Museum of Art, the DeYoung Museum, and street fairs such as the SF Love Parade/Fest, SF Pride, the Burning Man Decompression Party, and more. He’s also a regular on radio stations BMIR and Global Gruvz.
NeonBunny is currently the resident dj and founder of Frolic, happening once a month in San Francisco. He also plays out several times a month at other events, both public and private/corporate.
