Valentine’s Day continues this weekend when three female DJs spread the love from their decks.

The women spin for the show, The Rebound, Saturday at Vernon’s  2929 Nite Club.

“We’re bringing in some of the most talented female DJs on the scene in what’s sure to be a crazy event,” said presenter Josh Brazier, with 13th Floor. “Plus girls get in free.”

Scheduled to perform is Brianne O’Connor, a.k.a. Breo, who has been one of Kelowna’s leading female DJs since 2007.

Originally a vocalist with all-girl DJ collective FlyDJs, Breo later made the transition to turntables and has since performed  at an arsenal of major events across Canada and the U.S., including Salmo’s Shambhala Music Festival, where she was given an opportunity to live out her dream of playing The Village Stage.

Her most recent accomplishment was the November release of her latest mix, which was part of the L.O.U.D. podcast series, hosted by the DnB Girls of Canada.

Also on deck Saturday is Vernon’s very own Brianna Hogan (BRI3), who is originally from Saskatchewan and has been rocking the Okanagan for three years, appearing at events such as Sexy Sounds, Wake2Wake, Bushwacked and Whomp to name a few.

She is also the official DJ for Kamloops roller derby team, the Tournament City Derby Dolls.

Known for  producing her own intros that grab the crowd’s attention to the very last beat, fellow Valley girl Lil’ Miz Bumpit placed second in the Open for Avicii contest that was held throughout the Okanagan this past year.

Tickets for Saturday’s Rebound show are $15 (free for women) in advance at the Downtown Internet Lounge or $20 at the door.
