Mark Johns has been a DJ and visual artist since 1991, getting his start in San Jose at Club F/X.
He began doing multi-image light shows (now called VJ'ing) for underground parties in the Bay Area such as Rave Called Sharon, Destiny, The Gathering, Toontown, Coolworld, By the People, Stompy, and many more.
In 1994 Johns partnered with San Jose dj's Rick Preston, DJ M3, and Loren to launch a weekly party called "The Velvet Shop". Beginning in a small lesbian bar, the weekly event has brought the worlds finest house music producers and dj's to the Bay Area for over 14 years and is still going strong with the help of MJ Gamez.
Mark continues to DJ and VJ making guest appearances around the bay and has resident VJ gigs with Stompy/Sunset, Salted, and Green Gorilla Lounge.
