DJ TAKAS IS BACK!
It’s not a Pinot Palooza without music, is it. It’s why we’re bringing back our good mate DJ TAKAS to keep us in the Pinot mood all day.
DJ Takas has been a fan of good music all his life and fondly remembers listening to his fathers selections growing up….listening to everything from Muddy waters right through to Jimi Hendrix and onto Prince and beyond.
He has been the resident in the past at many many venues both here in NZ and abroad. As such he has played along side the likes of Yes King and Mark Rae,The Nextmen and Nathan Haines , right through to Norman Jay and Derrick Carter….
In a nutshell DJ Takas is a DJ with few boundaries and many styles, if you’re lucky enough to be on his dance floor you just might be in for a treat, you’re likely to hear long lost faves you love, blended with new tunes of today.
To quote him “… I like to make girls dance. Boys usually hate it … but in the end they’ll be on the D floor because the girls are”
