Jon (aka Dr Rhythm) is a professional DJ, beatboxer, voice over artist and event host - DJing and MCing at private functions and events, weddings and clubs.
Dr Rhythm has a reputation for being the man that can and will do anything - so trying to pigeonhole exactly what he can do is tricky, because he does it all! He blazes any stage or event, with hype to last for days.
During 2014 Dr Rhythm toured the national Big Day Out circuit DJing for Red Bull, pumping up the thousands of people entering the Big Day Out Festival's. His DJ style is varied from the 7 years of experience MCing alongside international DJ's and some of Australia's finest.
His vast selection of music will cater to any event, whether its chilled soul and funk, to mash up party and old school.
Quoted as Australia hardest working MC, Dr Rhythm has held audiences in the palm of his hands at; Summafeildayze, Woodford Folk Festival, Singapore Dance and Festival, Wet N Wild, Parklife, Redbull Music Academy, Surfers Paradise Fringe festival and corporate affairs for world renowned brands such as Telstra, Westfield, Virgin Mobile and Footlocker. The National Marketing Manager for Redbull refers to the Doc as “our go to guy for hosting all of our national events.”
As an experienced entertainer he can keep people in their seats or make them go crazy on the dance floor. With a mic in one hand and the crowd in the other, it’s the Doctor who has the prescription!

He lead and worked with two similar musicians in these commercials which aired on Channel [V] and virally. Working alongside Publisis Mojo and Channel [V] was hands down the high light of his career to date.
