Richard began his DJ career whilst being a ‘glassy’ at a number of leading nightclubs in Brisbane. He learnt how to use Technics turntables and a 4 channel mixer. Yes in those days there was no CD’s!! He grasped his first real opportunity working as the Wednesday night DJ in Rosie’s Tavern in Brisbane. He was only paid bar wages with no penalty rates, but couldn’t care less because he had discovered his real passion!
He spent his days scouring record stores and Central Station music for latest tracks. He also had the privilege of collecting promotional music for all the major record labels and an ARIA music reviewer for many years. His mentor was the late DJ Johnny T-Bone, who taught Richard that the best DJ’s were the ones that read the crowd, and programmed the right music to play at the right time! Richard honed his DJ’ing technique by working with DJ Freestyle learning how to beat mix music and his DJ career went from strength to strength. Richard has held long term residencies in many of Queensland’s leading hotels, pub and clubs.
In 2005, Richard established the Recharge DJ Group, believing he had developed a music model that was in very high demand. His challenge was he had multiple clients who all wanted the same thing, but he could only be in one place at a time! He has built the successful DJ business offering his clients skilled DJ’s that know how operate and follow a specified music brief.
