DJ SUGA K

A Native of Jacksonville Beach, FL, born Kristen Theriault, Suga K is currently one of the top female DJs from her region. She acquired her first Nightclub Residency at the end of 2020 at Jacksonville’s own Myth Nightclub & Element Bistro. In 2021, she released her first solo track, “Supafly” under the Miami based Breakbeat Label, Gigabeat Records. To her surprise, the response was staggering. The track quickly climbed to #34 on Beatport’s Top 100 Breakbeat Charts. This marked a huge milestone in her music career. Suga has since toured the Florida and Gulf Coast Nightclub circuit, opening up for countless highly accredited performance DJs and producers. My advice to you is to stay tuned in to this artist as I am fairly certain there’s always something fresh and innovative brewing behind the scenes with this chick. Her passion, drive and devotion do not go unnoticed, and her keen track selection and mixing style have quickly made her a featured regional talent and crowd pleaser.

DJ G$

Joywave

My name is Grace Seymour (aka G$), and I am a House DJ in Jacksonville Beach, FL.  I am 23 years old, and have been involved in and out of music my entire life. I made my move from San Diego 2 years ago, and have intentionally sought out a music career since discovering the small (but present) community of DJ’s around me. I focus in on all genres and aspects of House music, and have received nothing but pure joy from doing so. I have never experienced a greater feeling than seeing happiness on others faces purely based off of a song – and that is why I do it. I’m here to make people dance.
