Mixmaster DJ Jenny Costa has perfected the art of mixing music since her early teens. Fascinated by dance music, Jenny began to collect Latin, Disco and R&B classics as a hobby and was inspired by her father Angelo, a former orchestra musician. At age 16, Jenny mixed for the original 92 WKTU playing current and up and coming dance cuts, which now are dance classics.
Jenny was there at their beginning and has received platinum albums for her help as a billboard reporter in promoting artists such as Madonna, Jody Watley and Expose. Her passion for her work is undeniable and the people who experience the euphoric atmosphere she creates with her music can vouch for that. Jenny has worked in Europe and the Caribbean as well as numerous venues in the United States. One of the only females in a male dominated industry who has made a mark behind the wheels of steel, pumping out hot dance tracks with different genres of music ranging from Latin, dance classics and freestyle, to Hip-Hop, house and current dance.
If you ask Jenny what her favorite kind of music is she will always say she loves it all, some of her favorite artists are Andre Bocelli, James Brown, P. Diddy, Luther Vandross, Whitney and Barry White. One of Jenny's favorite types of dance music, is Salsa. Jenny, a former ballroom dance teacher, can turn it out on the dancefloor as well as behind the turntables. She is a true entertainer in every sense of the word. Jenny recently made radio industry history by becoming the first ever to win the New York Metro A.I.R. Award for Best Mix Show DJ. Governor George Pataki and Sean Puffy Combs were among the honored presenters and guest speakers at the awards dinner that took place on March 3, 2004 at B.B. Kings Theater in Manhattan.
