For more details - continue reading the full interview...Bert Bevans
and his twin brother Robert
were born in Belize, British Honduras in the late 1950's.
Bert's twin brother came first, so Bert was the younger of the two and he had to stay in hospital for almost 3 months in an incubator after this birth.
Unfortunately Robert passed away in July of 1991 when his kidneys couldn't take any more after hard drug abuse. But the brothers were always very close through out life and their family could sometimes not deal with how close they were. They even used to finish each other's sentences.
The family moved to New York July 27, 1969 and settled down in Jamaica, Queens and later moved to Hollis, Queens - where he lived during his teens. After school he studied aviation, but he never finish the education - as he tells me himself: "If I had graduated, I would have had to go to Vietnam, so I left. I still love flying though!"
Bert explains that he becoming a DJ was kind of a "Natural Progression". He started out doing "Block Parties" in Hollis and then things more or less just happened. He never planned to be a DJ, but when he worked in Melody's Record Shop
, most of NY DJ's came there to get the latest releases. They liked him and would invite him to their clubs... And the rest is history!
So, I [Discoguy
] asked Bert: Have you ever done something else - Or has DJ'ing been your life?"I have had a few other jobs but always in entertainment."
Among other things Bert worked as Assistant Promotion Manager for Starr Arning
at Prelude Records. His friend Francois Kevorkian helped him to that job.
Starting out with the "Block Parties" with the "boyz in the hood" - guys like Run DMC, LL Cool Jand others - in Hollies in the early 1970's, these parties led to other and between 1975 and 1977 he could be heard in clubs like Sesame St, Leviticus'
, Pep Maguire's and many others.
All of this leading to the work in the record store which led to Bert's first paid gig..."My first paid gig was a guest spot at Infinity's on Broadway for
Maurice Brahms. Jim Burgesswas the resident, but he didn't want to play, so I got the gig.
John Addison found out about it and the next week I was doing lights for Francois K and Raul Rodriguez, and even sometimes DJ'ing at New York, New York.
A friend of mine, Joel
, worked at Les Mouches
and he got me private parties there."
