Steve Miggedy Maestro

April 3, 2015Steve Miggedy Maestro

Steve “Miggedy” Maestro met WGCI radio personality Cartier (pronounced kar¬t¬-YAY) at the now defunct Lasalle Club a few years after graduating high school. A chance tape and a contest to be a mixer on WGCI emerged and a week later Elroy Smith, Program Director of WGCI, contacted Miggedy to request his services as a Mixshow DJ for Club 107.5 The rest is history. While making masterpieces for WGCI, Steve “Silk” Hurley, Doug Banks and Tom Joyner, Steve was also tapped by Gary Bernstein of SuperRadio Networks to do Old School & New School mixes for the syndicated radio program heard in 30+ radio stations across the country including L.A., Orlando, FL, Raleigh, N.C. & Dallas, TX to name a few. Further success followed with major label record companies, resulting in award plaques from established juggernauts like Bad Boy, Rawkus, La Face, MCA & Def Jam. Steve continues to be an active and respected DJ in the house music community.

Chicago's “Tightest Female DJ” can be found on Radio Soul 106.3 fm, mid-days and at high profile DJ gigs around the city. Formally of radio station WGCI (nine years) and V103 (five years), Sundance is the first female DJ on all-urban radio in Chicago. She has been a guest DJ on Fox Television, WGN, ABC Channel 7's Windy City Live, and BET's Rap City: The Basement. Sundance has been featured in XXL and The Source magazines, where she was named "one of the best female DJs in the Mid-West" in 2004. In 2007, Sundance won Sprite's national Step-Off "Best Female DJ Award”, and she has been voted “Chicago's Hottest Female DJ” three years in a row, while also being the first female DJ added to The Core DJ's Worldwide. Sundance got her start in the business at age seventeen when she was a featured rapper on the 1989 single "Git On Up," produced by Fast Eddie. The single was on the Billboard Dance charts for ten weeks and was certified gold.
