Thursday, June 7: DJ Kelly

DJ Kelly performs Thursday, June 7 at 6:00 p.m. at the Dance Pavilion.

Kelly has been part of the LGBTQ community in Milwaukee for over 20 years.

From a start DJing at popular Milwaukee nightclub Innegans and later the Burleigh Pub (which were both located inside Red Carpet Lanes), Kelly’s first gay bar residency was Switch. Next came several years at LaCage (now LVL), then Out-N-About (MONA’s) and back to LaCage. He also has a long association with Fluid Bar, as well as Harbor Room.

Kelly holds a record for 13 consecutive years performing at the PrideFest Dance venue, starting in the era of the large tent. Kelly was instrumental in bringing the first ever LED screen to the Summerfest grounds.  The groundbreaking unit was the full width “backdrop” on the dance stage.
