House Music, Hot Daddies and Daddy Chasers
Dwayne Minard jokes that he owes his career to Rick Astley. When the popular nightclub Studebaker’s held an lip-sync contest in the early 90s, they found their winner wasn’t simply a strong, strong man but someone with a stage presence of his own and a deep love for classic soul and 70s music.
Dwayne’s signature sound of funky, uplifting house led to DJ sets in Vancouver, at Miami’s White Party and in famed London UK clubs Pacha and The End. Meanwhile, he became a mainstay of Toronto’s gay scene through regular residencies at Fly nightclub, lüb lounge and his current stint at Pitbull.
Dwayne also spins at the club nights he now promotes himself, as the creator of popular parties Mr. Big and Daddy Next Door. His career may have been launched almost by accident but, in venues big and small, Dwayne’s infectious love of house music has made him a favourite of club-goers.

DJ MikeyB fell in love with house music back in the day of Industry and Joy.
He's played a couple of events, a couple of weddings, and sometimes he plays in his home late at night with his dog at his feet.
