Ministry of Sound DJ performs in Lyme Regis

THE Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis is holding a night of house classics, Nu Disco and electro from a Cream and Ministry of Sound DJ, who rose to fame in the 1990s.

Alongside his musical talent as a DJ, Jon Pleased Wimmin is known for his flamboyant cross-dressing and stylish presence.

In the 1980s his three-piece cabaret act The Pleased Wimmin was spotted performing by Danny Rampling, who immediately invited them to dance at his club.

As a DJ, Jon warmed up for Danny in Ibiza. An immediate hit with the crowd, requests for guest slots came in thick and fast, so he became a regular at clubs such as Fabric, Ministry of Sound, Cream, and Renaissance.

Jon has DJed across the world at places including Ibiza, Buenos Aires, South Africa, and Singapore. Jon’s highly stylised dress sense and musical skills made him a regular fixture in DJ Magazine’s top 100 best DJs in the world, coming 5th in 1996.

He has released numerous records, including two UK top 30 hits. Jon has played alongside high profile acts including Pete Tong, 2ManyDJs, Carl Cox, and Andrew Weatherall. Jon’s current sets are diverse including music from Late Night Tough Guy, Soulwax, Lifelike, and Todd Terje.

He will appear at the Marine Theatre on Friday, October 19 from 8pm. Tickets cost £7 in advance or £10 on the door with a 10% discount for Theatre Friends. To book, call 01297 442138 or visit www.marinetheatre.com
