A veteran DJ for nearly 30 years, many remember Chris Gallagher from back in the day at the legendary SIMONS in Florida when he was the club’s first resident DJ, starting way back in 1990. He spun 8-hour sets every Friday night for three years, helping to put SIMONS on the map and bringing the club to the forefront of the Florida underground music scene. Back then Chris ran the gamut of new sounds, taking people on serious journeys throughout his extended sets. But whatever style he presented, it was always funky enough to keep the floor rockin' and helped to give SIMONS the reputation it has today as one of the best underground clubs of the 1990s. In addition to maintaining a quarterly residency at SIMONS for over ten years, Chris was consistently a major figure in the Southeastern rave circuit, with performances too numerous to list here. However, he has had the pleasure of opening for such notables as: Paul Van Dyk, DJ Dan, Frankie Bones, John Debo, Doc Martin, Kimball Collins, Simply Jeff, DJ Icey, DJ Feelgood, Terry Mullan, Aphrodite, AK1200, Keoki, and Lady Miss Kier to name a few, as well as sharing the bill with Kimball for Sasha's first gig ever in the United States, at SIMONS in 92. Due to countless gigs over the years, Chris has been mentioned in magazines such as URB, Mixer, Streetsounds, Details, and other various publications.
Chris currently is focusing on the current techno sound, not too mention remixing his official DJ website! Stay tuned.
