Anna Washenko- DJ Coordinator - Los Angeles

Since then, she’s been behind the decks at events all around the country, including bluesShout, Blues Muse, Austin Blues Party, and Steel City Blues. Anna spins all genres in the blues family, but you may notice she’s a real sucker for anything with piano.

Daniel Repsch- Montreal
Dan is a veteran DJ with a lifelong musical obsession. He DJs because he loves sharing music, inspiring dancers, and shaping a dance night. He’s spun for events across 4 continents, playing for everything from international events to local dances on a weekly basis and has organized both locally and for events as their Head DJ, including BluesSHOUT! and The Blues Experiment. He’s constantly challenging himself to bring new material to his fellow dancers and works hard to offer a variety of music in his sets that stays true to the roots of the dance. He loves all styles of music and his sets tend more toward authentic Jazz and Blues, but he can bring the party if the dance calls for it.
Susan Olson- Minneapolis
Susan loves many different kinds of blues music, but there are special places in her heart for ballroom blues, badass female singers, tight harmonica solos, and fun rhythms. She has deejayed at North Star Blues, Sweet Molasses Blues, bluesSHOUT! and numerous other events in addition to frequent local dances in her home scene of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Susan enjoys nothing more than keeping people out past their bedtimes to dance to amazing music and can't wait to be at bluesSHOUT! again.
