Shannon Blowtorch is an award winning, self-taught, Minneapolis based DJ who has been recognized both in the States and abroad for her high energy and eclectic mixes.

As the DJ for popular Twin Cities’ events, such as Soul Friday, Berlin, and Bomp, the City Pages and Vitamnhave recognized Shannon Blowtorch as being the Best Club DJ in the Twin Cities.

One of Shannon Blowtorch’s greatest skills as a DJ is not only her ability to read the crowd, but to actually predict what the crowd will want to hear. Her innate ability to “tune in” and “predict” is also why she is so successful in all of her other ventures within the music and club industry and shows why she’s the successful co creator of events like the Twin Cities event, Grown & Sexy, which sell out nationally acclaimed venues like First Ave.
