Johnny Dynell is the NYC DJ and impresario that has been practicing his craft at places like The Mudd Club, Danceteria, The Pyramid, Area, BoyBar, Susanne Bartsch parties, The Tunnel, The Roxy, Jackie 60, Crobar, Mr. Black and Vandam – for over two and a half decades. Currently he is finishing up a voguing album on his Endless Night Music label with rtists like Princess Xtravaganza, Paul Alexander and Jocelyn Brown. He is also gearing up for the legendary (May 11th) Night of A Thousand Stevies 22, “Dreams Unwind”. I love sneaking up on Johnny in the DJ booth – he swears he always pee’s his pants.
