We had the good fortune of connecting with DJ Kimmy K and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi DJ Kimmy K, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
I think the most important factor of my brand is being a woman in a male dominated industry. I started in 1998 where it was not seen much at all to be a woman mobile DJ. I think my success is staying true to myself and my beliefs sharing positivity. I stay centered and strong in my faith in God, which has brought me to where I am today.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I love to be live at every event and bring my natural talent to the table. I don’t premix my sets or have a list of songs set aside that I will play. I just go in raw and start the music like an art master piece. What sets me apart is my genuine attitude and I display myself with high professionalism. I have gotten to participate in a world wide DJ competition with Walt Disney World winning both auditions one live in a club where I was told to video mix with no knowledge of video mixing prior at the time and to hit all time cues and intros and outros of songs with precise timing while uplifting ,crowd motivating the entire club.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The galleria mall for sure is a spot I would show anyone visiting because it has some much variety and people to see. I would then go downtown to the museum and see all the sites of downtown. I know Nasa is a big favorite for all visitors so we would defiantly hit that up. We would also check out some local DJs and EDM shows at night. We cant forget the food, Hugo’s Mexican and the fancy side we will go to Pappas Bros. Steakhouse. If its the right time of year we will go to an Astros game and reminisce about Astro world and sight see around the history of that area.
