TRAVISWILD has quickly become the most sought after DJ in the San Francisco Bay Area. His passion for electronic music began over 10 years ago when introduced to Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren and Ferry Corsten, and he was completely hooked after he was given a copy of Gabriel & Dresden’s first album, Bloom, in 2004. Since moving to San Francisco in late 2011 he’s earned a reputation within the Bay Area dance music community as the most entertaining and energetic talent available. Since breaking into the scene with his first gig as an opener for Warren G in June 2012, he’s already shared the stage with several world renowned acts such as Ferry Corsten, Mord Fustang, EC Twins, Jeremy Orlander, Fehrplay, The Chainsmokers, Tommie Sunshine, Tristan Garner, Thomas Jack, Popeska, Rony Seikaly and many other talented artist and producers.
Simultaneously he has launched the most popular monthly party in San Francisco as his residency, “THE ANIMAL PARTY,” at Harlot, one of SF’s top nightclubs and sold out every single headlining gig to date at other venues such as Vessel, Mezzanine and Audio. In less than a year after launching THE ANIMAL PARTY in SF it was successfully expanded to East Hampton, NY with two sold out shows in the summer of 2013. In November of 2013, exactly one year after establishing himself as king of the Animal Kingdom, THE ANIMAL PARTY and TRAVISWILD secured bi-monthly residency at Riff Raff’s in NYC with each show selling out more than a week in advance. Summer of 2014 promises to be extra hot as the TRAVISWILD residency returns to Sienna in East Hampton with three shows: Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. TRAVISWILD had his international debut in March of 2014 with a sold out show at Garfinkel’s in Whistler, BC., only further proving that TRAVISWILD and The Animal Kingdom cannot be domesticated.
TRAVISWILD is known for bringing hundreds of his own fans to each show and controlling them for hours with a uniquely up-beat sound and infectiously entertaining persona on stage. Affectionately referred to as “The Animal Kingdom,” his loyal fans have launched Travis into the spotlight overnight and continue to support both his music and his primary business partner – a 4ft tall inflatable dinosaur named Rageasaurus Rex. In addition to expanding the Animal Kingdom globally, TRAVISWILD has been hard at work in the studio creating, developing and perfecting his unique style of electronic music – Animal House.
Lastly, TRAVISWILD has developed a charity brand, RAGE FOR A REASON, with two shows in NYC raising over $15,000 for Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and many more shows in the works.
