Originally from Dallas, Tx, BIlly Pena now resides in Kansas City as dance floor entertainment persona "DJ Ray Pena." Ray Pena has been entertaining Clubs, Underground Music Events, Weddings and even Corporate Events, since 1998. His use of a traditional turntable and his "surprise after surprise" style of track selection are proof of his musical understanding. He continues tradition as the fourth DJ in his family tree. Two of which were big names in the Dallas, Tx. scene from the mid-eighties to the early nineteen-nineties.
Ray is frequently complemented on his etiquette. It is only matched by his determination to create excitement. It also complements his persona as a competition DJ. You can find Ray frequently
performing turntable exhibitions for the local Kansas City Dance/Hip-Hop/R&B Club circuit. Three times (plus) a year you will find him giving Holliday Turntable sessions at Dillard’s.
DJ Ray Pena left Corporate America behind and now devotes all of his talent and energy to spreading his love for music at exclusive venues and private events from Chicago to Dallas (and expanding). His presentation of noticeable melodies over a surprise hit from your past create a dance floor filled with extreme emotion. It is even evident to those that only party from table side. His nostalgic sound encourages you to be yourself and enjoy who you are through dance and music.
Past venues that DJ Ray Pena has performed at include Kansas City’s: Bar Louie, Dave & Busters, Riot Room, The Union, Club 906, Tanner’s, The Roxy, Mojo's, Rivers Bend, Big D's on the Hill, Sake Bar, Kansas City Athenaum, Firestone Bldg, Bartle hall (Hot Import Nights), 64st Bar & Grille and many more.
