In the world of Circuit, there are legends. But then there is DJ Wendy Hunt, called the Queen
Mother of DJs by an industry that has heard her spin for nearly thirty-seven years and
perhaps longer than any.
She got her start before Disco was king while a nursing student in Boston, MA. "I was bit by
the bug while dancing to the jukebox at the 1270 (the twelve, to the frequenters)", said Hunt.
"Little did I know that moment would pave the road to a lifetime career". Under the guidance
of DJ mentor Jimmy Stuard, Wendy learned to spin 45's by watching him work and she was
given her first gig at the1270 in 1974. A second floor had been added to the club where
Jimmy would be spinning and he wanted Wendy to man the decks on the first floor. The crowd fell in love with her and Wendy would go on to delight thousands of people at parties around the US and beyond in the years to come. As the years progressed, her influence on the music world grew.
As the Circuit grew, Wendy continued delighting the patrons of numerous major Circuit events, including Winter Party and White Party in Miami, White Party Palm Springs, Purple Party Dallas, Ascension Party Fire Island Pines and Valley of the Dolls in Dallas to name only a few.
Wendy has entertained crowds from Honolulu to London and is occasionally found delighting the masses on RSVP cruises.
In 2000, Wendy was chosen to share credits on the Pride 2000 Centaur CD with fellow DJ Julian Marsh. The album today remains one of the best sellers on the Centaur label. In 2007, Wendy and DJ Warren Gluck united to produce White Party Miami's signature album, also on Centaur.
This CD was Centaur's first release to appear on this new millennium's popular music application, iTunes. In addition to gratifying thousands of hungry dancers with her delicious music and producing the occasional CD, Wendy is a part of the sales support team at Numark, a company that manufactures, distributes, and sells gear catering to all musicians from DJ's to drummers in both in retail stores and online.
Yet, as other DJ's go into retirement, Wendy is still "on the hunt" to find yet another dance floor, crowded with carefree and euphoric dancers, on which to put smiling, happy faces.
The smiles, the dancing and the fun EVERYONE knows its Wendy!
