"Kevin Kauer has been an unstoppable force in the Seattle party scene. He was worked with just about every venue imaginable creating an array of events with creativity, passion, and impeccable design, not to mention the hectic DJ schedule that has taken this young man up and down the west coast and solidified him as a key player in the dance world."

-Blueyedsoul

 

"Kevin gets his spot in the Seattle Peach 100 for always doing the most and for constantly pushing the envelope in terms of material–his photos and parties are full of drag queens, burlesque dancers and other glamazonia, and he can play a dance set that burns up the floor without resorting to tired top 40 hits."

-Seattle Peach

 

"..the beats coming from Rebel more than made up for all the unyielding musculature in the club. Seattle's DJ Nark had appeared for the evening, sporting fetching neckwear and spinning even more fetching, not-corny-at-all jams from disco greats to more current, creepy-good modern bangers. By the end of the night the place was packed.."

-Caitlin Donohue, San Francisco Bay Guardian
