Best Club DJ

Richard J. Dalton

Despite being courted by artists like Lady Gaga and Rihanna and opening for Beyoncé at KeyArena, popular C89.5 on-air personality and club DJ Richard J. Dalton doesn't take himself too seriously. The self-described geek often rocks a feather boa and an outrageous hat while spinning an eclectic mix of what he calls "hands-up techno"—guilty pop pleasures like Britney Spears and Cascada, as well as fast-paced dance mashups featuring the likes of David Lee Roth. His unpretentious approach makes it easy for even the most self-conscious patron to request a song by, say, Miley Cyrus, and gets everyone dancing regardless of their state of inebriation.
