Jon Pleased Wimmin
Jon Cooper AKA Jon Pleased Wimmin is a UK DJ who grew up in London and rose to fame in the club world during the 1990′s where his flamboyant cross dressing and stylish presence became a force to be reckoned with.
After cutting his teeth as a clubber at seminal late 80′s London clubs such as Taboo, Sacrosanct and the Mud Club, Jon’s career on the other side of the decks started in 1991. His 3 piece Cabaret act â€˜The Pleased Wimmin’ were spotted performing at Kinky Gerlinky by Danny Rampling who immediately invited them to come and be dancers at his club Glam at the Milk Bar.
Over the next year it became apparent to Danny that Jon was obsessive about his music and in the summer of 1991, he asked Jon if he’d like to warm up for 6 weeks whilst Danny was in Ibiza. An immediate hit with the crowd, requests for guest slots came in thick and fast and he became a regular fixture at clubs nationwide such as Puschca, Venus, Fabric, Back To Basics, Miss Moneypennies, Slam, Pacha, Space, The Pod, Ministry of Sound, Cream and Renaissance amongst many others.
Jon guests all over Europe playing current and classic sets and has played alongside the cream of the Dj world including Pete Tong, 2ManyDj’s, Jacques Lu Cont, Danny Tenaglia, Sasha, Carl Cox, Andrew Weatherall, Boy George, Sister Bliss and Erol Alkan to name a few.
In the last 12 months Jon has toured Australia, played in Ibiza and Dubai and as well as appearing extensively throughout the UK. His live classics mix from the Cream Reunion in Liverpool from March 2015 went to No. 1 in the Mixcloud Classic House chart.
His eclectic taste and encyclopaedic knowledge of pop and dance music make him the perfect candidate for any party that needs an injection of oomph.
