Jonathan Caron hails from Montreal, Quebec, where he took his first dance class nine years ago. The punk kid he was wasn’t into jazz at first, but he quickly grew fond of Basie’s piano, Hampton’s vibraphone and Hodges’ alto saxophone. His music collection started growing, and he eventually started DJ locally in Montreal and Quebec City. He eventually had more opportunities to spin his tunes out of town, appearing as a DJ in events such as Dirty Dozen Weekend and the Boston Tea Party. He’s also been on the DJ team of Beantown Dance Camp for the last four years, where he’s now in charge of the DJ Summit.
