Perhaps the most important DJ in the San Francisco gay scene in the past decade, Bus Station John has been the musical conduit for a huge cultural reawakening. Called “the godfather of bathhouse disco,” he’s revered throughout the dance music world for his inimitable blend of rare 1970s and early 80s soul, boogie, garage, funk, Italo disco, Hi-NRG, and NYC no-wave.
