Born & raised in NJ with the city skyline in his backyard, Tony began his obsession with music at the young age of just 12 years. Tony was invited to make his NYC debut in 2006 at the legendary dance club “Avalon” (formerly The Limelight). That simple evening was all he needed to realize he had found his calling. Immediately this young, self taught individual began astonishing crowds, quickly climbing the ladder & giving the people what they want. His style of mixing continues to evolve with influence from today’s recognized DJs/Producers.
The past few years have kept Tony extremely busy, headlining major NJ/NYC clubs, as well as, being invited to play official WMC events in Miami, Florida. From clubs all over the Tri-State area, he has catered to the most diverse population of club going crowds, making him not only one of the most sought after DJs but a local celebrity in his own right.
With over 100 venues under his belt, Tony is no stranger to the celebrity world either. Sharing stages with artists such as Deborah Cox, Snoop Dogg, Nadia Ali, Ja Rule, Eva Simmons, Juelz Santana, LMFAO, Lloyd Banks, and John Martin (Swedish House Mafia Vocalist) just to name a few. Tony has also been featured in magazines such as Billboard, Metropolis Nights, and Dining Out. You’ll even get cameos of Tony flipping through TV channels on top shows such as The Style Network’s “Jerseylicious” or TLC’s “Cake Boss”.
As of recent, you can hear Tonys name all over NYC’s top radio station 92.3 W-BMP FM every week, advertising his residency at legendary NJ venue, Rise. When he’s not on the decks, you can catch his mixes on “The Weekend Throwdown with Jagger” a nationally syndicated FM radio show reaching 37 stations across the country. Or you can play for keeps and download straight from his iTunes podcast “The Tony Gia Podcast” with over 100,000 downloads annually.
Tony has dedicated himself to making every performance memorable, simply by programming his sets to please the people. Giving the people what they want, but influenced by his unique sound and style. It was this dedication that led him to be invited to accept the extremely rare honor of reporting for the Billboard Dance Chart. Becoming a Billboard Reporter is not easy and only obtained by invitation. These DJs are the most connected, talented, & successful nightclub DJs in the US. The short list of reporters include Internationally Acclaimed Producers, Touring DJs, and Pop Icons.
