RCT Entertainment DJ

Andy Stevens

I started DJ’ing whilst at Kingston university, playing in the student Union Bar every Friday night and then invited as a guest DJ at the student night at the local Ritzy nightclub – looking back now it wasn’t the best DJ-ing you’d ever see but that time made me realise it was definitely the profession I wanted to pursue.

I worked a summer season in Corfu in May 1994 and it seemed too good an opportunity to turn down as it offered 7 nights of club and bar experience that would really help me perfect my craft through until October. Continuous winter and summer contracts away would follow for the next 3 years and after 1998, I was back in London full time working at iconic venues such as The Hippodrome, Equinox and Time & Envy playing to large crowds of locals & international tourists, working alongside world-renowned performers and recording artists when they appeared as PAs
