DJ Jon Feist was on the turntables at the age of 5. He would play his older sister’s records for hours while she was at school. As his musical journey began Jon always leaned towards the songs with a dance rhythm, it was his goal to be exposed to every type of music. Getting paid for his first DJ gig even before he graduated high school Jon was hooked.
A few DJs took him under their wing and Jon became well known for playing break beats and house music in Reno, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco and Seattle in the 90’s. He went by the stage name DJ Feist-E. DJing at late night parties and nightclubs became DJ Feist-E’s world. He produced records and had a nightclub residency in Germany for almost a year.
When Jon returned to the states he continued to DJ in California holding residencies at large scale nightclubs. He went on to Co-host a number of morning shows where he did live mixes twice daily on the radio. The mixshow’s popularity won him national syndication and his mixes played all over the country in the early 2000’s. He was voted best DJ by the Chico, CA News and Review in 2003.
