2017 Best Club DJ Johnny Kage

Johnny Kage - The Rooftop

DJ Johnny Kage has a lot of good things happening in life these days. Aside from DJing at west El Paso’s Rooftop Sky Garden & Grill, he’s also co-owner of the venue. Opening a second location is currently in the works.

When asked what he likes most about DJing, he said “I like to bring different music from different cultures to the table.” Playing a variety that includes dance and house hits, Kage is well-known for playing what he refers to as ‘Juarez classics.’ This includes hit songs from Mexican rock bands like Maná and Molotov.

Kage, who’s been DJing for 24-years, began his career as a teenager. He earned his first gig at the memorable Juarez nightclub, Vertigo Discoteque. Who can forget those crazy drink-and-drown nights with good music to go along with them?

You can also listen to Kage on“The Morning Mash” 104.3 Hit-FM radio program along with co-host DJ Javi weekday mornings from 6-10 a.m. Speaking of which, check out the winners for Best Power Couple and Best Radio DJ Under 40. Catch Johnny Kage at Rooftop Sky Garden & Grill, 4201 Camelot Heights, and on Twitter @JohnnyKage
