Friday Night 11P.M. – 4A.M.
Aneon 11P.M. – 12:15A.M.
Ever since getting home from staffing my first Con I’ve been playing with tunes in DJ software, but only recently have I started taking it seriously. I mostly play the music that I enjoy, usually kicking it off with a bit of Madeon before moving into some less known names, but regardless of what I play my goal is to get the crowd up and dancing and having a great time. The energy of the crowd is what first got me into DJ-ing, I love seeing everyone dancing to the beat as much as I love the music itself and I hope everyone else will too. This will be my first major gig, so let’s all get up and dance!
DJ Chem Roc 12:15A.M. – 1:30A.M.
They call me DJ Chem Roc. I’ve been DJing for about one year right now. I’m 45 years old and my daughter and I always enjoyed going to the Anime Conventions. I’m a Army Veteran and currently working for DoD in Saudi Arabia. I’ve learned DJing from my uncle when I was a teen. After many years not touching a turn table, I’ve decided to take it up again. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and my style is usually club and latin music. My daughter asked, actually begged me to submit a demo.
HJ 1:30A.M. – 2:45A.M.
A Buffalo, NY native, HJ (facebook.com/DJxHJ) has been following his passion for music and honing his talents for more than 10 years. Prior to live DJing, HJ stormed the likes of internet radio and podcasting. Once he was exposed to the club and rave scenes, he couldn’t get enough of the beats; he was hooked immediately to the vibe, the crowd, the atmosphere, and the pure thrill of controlling the journey. In 2008, HJ spawned the creation, promotion, and performance of the first ever rave/dance event at University at Buffalo’s UBCon. From there, HJ has performed in many venues in the Buffalo/Rochester NY area, including several conventions: ROCCON!, Tora-Con, and continues to host the rave at UBCon yearly. His variety of music centers on moombahton, dubstep and electro house – with some throwbacks to classic retro tunes with a bit of nostalgia for video game music. In spite of it all, however, it is only one thing that audiences truly sense when they hear HJ spin, it’s the one thing that keeps his crowds coming back to him for more, it’s the force that keeps HJ constantly moving forward in a world immersed in stillness: the power of music.
