“John Grammatis is a mind reader”....

At least that’s how music lovers and club goers around the world have explained John’s uncanny ability to read a crowd’s energy and play just the right tracks at the right times and persuade even the most jaded club kid to scramble for the nearest dance floor- or even bar and table top!

 John’s career as a DJ startingin 1986 playing around with some turntables and throwing house parties to the world travleing DJ that he is today. Even as a teenager, John’s innate ability to connect with a crowd and impressive technical expertise earned him a residency at Chicago’s famed Cairo Club when he was only 17- the youngest club DJ in the entire city! While at Cairo, John also started his own night drawing over 1200 per week, showcasing his skills as both a promoter and a DJ.

Just a year later, John packed up his records and headed to Europe where he worked in Copenhagen, Italy, and Greece. In 2001, John was invited back to Europe for a five week tour. 14 years later, these summer tours are still going strong.  In addition to all these nightclubs, John has found a different avenue to express his love for all kinds of music. In 2004, John landed a gig to produce all the music for the IIDA Awards (International Interior Design Association). That triggered a few more corporate accounts including, Herman Miller, Porsche USA, Nordstrom, and Nordstrom Rack. But Chicago is John’s home, and he has made his mark by spinning at some of the city’s most prestigious clubs and venues. With John in the dj booth you’ll always find yourself on the dancefloor.
