Halifax, Nova Scotia
A true veteran to the Halifax Underground music scene, Tommy Knuckles is a Halifax house music staple. It all started on a fateful night in ‘96 when Tom experienced his first underground party. His love affair with house music was born. That night started a journey which created Bubble Productions (Wolfville, NS) and eventually lead him to managing “The Underground”, the staple rave venue in Halifax, until its final show in 2000. The next few years were spent working with The Deep Red Collective, keeping the underground alive in Halifax. Moving into the club scene as KNUCKLES Productions, Tom became the host of the “Friday Night Showcase” at Reflections Cabaret (2003-2005). Since then, he has been focusing on keeping the happy house music vibe alive, one show at a time, all over Canada and beyond (including SmartBar, Chicago IL).
Known for dropping old school vocal house, lots of horns and sassy bass lines, Tom’s indisputable drive and natural talent has earned him his place amongst the best house jocks on the east coast. With the back ground of a jazz drummer, he embraces those roots in his music as a DJ, but it is his smiling face and dancing legs that make him such a great addition to any party. Notorious for dancing up a storm in the DJ booth, Tommy Knuckles fun energy and funky music will leave a smile on your face and your body begging for more.
