HELLO COLORADO!

We are THRILLED to announce the biggest Sunday Funday of the year - with our good friend, and the KING of hard house in America - MR. JON BISHOP!!!!

In the beginning of the electronic music scene in San Diego California, was dj Jon Bishop. Performing in warehouses, outdoor events, trade shows and radio shows. Jon’s reputation as a leader in the techno/house scene spread fast, and soon he was booked at the biggest events in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and all around the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.

In 1991, Jon launched the first late night radio show dedicated to electronic music called” Sounds Of The Underground” on 92.5 fm in San Diego. The show was instrumental in bringing Jon’s name and the new techno and house sound to San Diego.

1992 saw the creation of the legendary Club Hedonism at Richs nightclub in San Diego, with Jon as one of the co-founders. The club night ran every Thursday night for over 10 years until 2002,and established itself as the longest running club night in the U.S.A. The night was voted one of the top nights out in both Playboy and d
Details magazine, and it boasted 1,000 patrons who came to hear the cutting edge house and techno that Jon pioneered into his patented high energy hard dance sound he is now identified with. The club night hosted some of the best dj’s in the world including the Tidy Boys, Lisa lashes, Ann Savage, Tall Paul, John Digweed, Carl Cox, Rachel Auburn,and Kimball Collins to name a few.

In addition to Club Hedonism, Jon was the main resident dj at s
Studio 64 which was held every Friday night in San Diego at club Montage. The club night boasted 1,500 in attendance. Studio 64’s successful run lasted 5 years due in large part to the powerful sets Jon consistently performed.

In 1999 Jon was given a residency at one of England’s premier club nights, Sundissential which was located in Birmingham and Leeds. Sundissential is known as one of the leading hard dance venues in the U.K. Jon visited on a regular monthly basis dj-ing Sundissential and some of England’s biggest nights such as the Tidy Weekender and Tidy London, Dance Academy, Storm, Frantic, Polysexual, and Gatecrasher Summer Sound System.

Jon started his music production in 1994 along with friend Daryl Riley. Jon and Daryl released five singles,” What It Is”, ”Far”, ”Want More?’, ”Take A Trip”, and “I Need Somebody New”. Jon and Daryl also did remixes of “Sexy Sucker” for the Thrill Kill Cult, and ”Catch Me I’m Falling” by Pretty Poison, which made it in the billboard top 50 dance chart. In 1997 Jon and Daryl wrote “Everybody In The House” which was released on Aqua Boogie records.

2001 saw Jon’s first international release on the worlds biggest hard house label Tidy Trax from the U.K. ”I’m In Control” was co-written by Jon and the Tidy Boys (Andy Pickles and Amadeus Mozart) and to this day is still selling well. Also in 2001, Jon wrote two tracks with ICU recording artist Gyrate (r.i.p.) called “Hit That Switch” and “Yes I’m Groovin” which appeared on Jon’s best selling Global Hard House cd, and both have been recently re-released on the F-8 label and available on Beatport.2002 saw Jon’s second release on the Tidy label called ”Stalker” co-written with Paul Maddox, which was a actual phone message Jon received. Stalker is still considered a hard house anthem around the world.2002 had Jon in the studio with Las Vegas dj/producer legend Jose2Hype producing the track ”Bumrush” which was released on Jon’s Bumpin’Farm Music label.2003 had Jon in the studio with Paul Maddox co-writing” Keep On”, and with Rachel Auburn writing the track” Reflections”

Jon has had three international cd releases. In 1999 ICU records produced Club nights vol.0.1.”Live At Club Hedonism”.2000 saw the release of 6 a.m. Ibiza on Max Music, which was a selection of tracks Max Music selected for Jon to put together in his unique style. In 2001 Jon released the very popular” Global Hard House” cd on ICU records which solidified Jon as America’s premier hard dance dj and one of the top hard dance dj’s worldwide.

Jon has gotten back into the Studio with San Diego producer Brian Millar. With several tracks completed, Jon and Brian have released the track “King Of House” to the U.K.’s Fired Up music label, and also “Over & Over” which was released on Fired Up in December 2010 and made it to #69 in the TrackItDown top 100.


THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY GUARANTEED SOLD OUT SHOW!

A little background on Sunday Funday.........

In the spring of 2008, Ryan Dykstra was creating events and starting new concepts for Regas Christou and his CoClubs organization. Regas wanted to get more use out of the frshly renamed and remodeled Jonas Furs building now called Bar Standard (formerly Shelter, formerly Serengeti), and asked Dykstra to get to work. Drawing inspiration from the patio, rooftop and pool parties that were happening in Miami & Los Angeles at the time, he set out to create a day party, with Colorado's best DJs playing all day long, great drink secials, and delicious food. It took a little while to catch on, but by the middle of the summer, the mulitipe rooftops of the Jonas Furs building were completely packed with party people. In the years following, Dykstra moved the party around to many other locations, with stops at Beta, Sutra, The Meadowlark, Lincoln Street Station and more, and of course, many other clubowners and promoters copied the concept, and now the idea of a Sunday day party is a normal and expected part of the Denver "nightlfe" (or "daylife") landscape.

This is the ORIGINAL Colorado Sunday Funday party, and it is just going to keep getting better.
