DJ Ryan Jones never set out to change the musical landscape of the SoCal gay scene, he just ended up doing it. Even though he had a track record as a DJ since 2001 of reeling in work quite easily whenever he looked for it, he only occasionally sought out nightclub gigs, mainly tampering with night life scenes instead of causing them.
His sound has been an overnight success with word spread quickly about the thumping and tastefully funky sounds Ryan was bringing to the SoCal gay nightlife scene. By the time the “Jukebox Intervention” party was in its second week, the tiny bar in Long Beach that hosted the event was filled well beyond capacity with lines extending down the block. By the 3rd week, the bar owners fit their space with a new $18,000 sound system, and by the 4th week, he started booking guests, landing Jones a reputation as being a solid promoter as well.
His tenacity, vision, and sound have landed him in the drivers seat of two currently running and highly successful events on the Los Angeles East side, both “DILF” and “RUFFHAUS,” currently giving him a reputation as being one of LA's most well known promoters. His events have booked guests ranging from DJ Roven to Jer Ber Jones, DJ P-Play, and most recently, DJ Dan. In August 2012, he and his partner in crime, DJ Roven, throw their biggest endeavor to date, taking place on the back decks of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, hosting eight DJs, six club kids, three decks of sound, and two dance floors with a 1,500 person capacity.
