DJ RanKan (32) aka Ryan Kanowski hails from the Queen City of Buffalo, NY.
Inspired by his early years in drama club and his great love of music, he started his own radio station at high school. “Wild Radio” became wildly popular and from there DjRanKan grew to become the youngest “on air” talent ever employed in upstate New York’s biggest radio station WKSE KISS 98.5. You can still hear him on these airwaves today. (Fun fact: Kiss 98.5 is the same radio station shown in the opening scene of the Justin Bieber movie!)
But let’s rewind a few years! Before RanKans radio success, he reluctantly succumbed to his parent’s offer of a business degree at a local college. “Reluctantly” is key here as he wasn’t the best student and knew deep down that he had a higher calling. To matters worse he was unceasingly distracted by the one thing that held attention always……Music!
One random, cold, snowy, day at Erie Community College, Ryan Kanowski raised his hand and asked his business professor a question that would soon change the course of his life forever: “What businesses have you previously owned before you started teaching?”. The professor stood there for a moment confused and simply replied “I’ve never owned a business before, but hopefully one day I will.”
This was the moment Ryan knew he was in the wrong place, at the wrong time, with the wrong people. It was the day he decided to follow his first love – Music and became determined to not only make his (worried) parents happy, but help them retire. “It’s the reason I get out of bed in the morning” Ryan says calmly. “I love my family so much and they’ve given so much to me growing up, it’s my turn to give back.”
Focusing solely on music and DJ’ing hundreds of local events, his fan base grew exponentially. He was eventually hired by Kiss 98.5 as their youngest DJ ever but he wasn’t going to stop there. In the following years, using his passion for both business and music and the idea that they could complement each other perfectly, DJ RanKan created and built his own niche brand as the “Worlds Corporate DJ”.
In 2016 alone, he has DJ’d numerous large scale international corporate events from Singapore Asia to Rome Italy, Paris France to Berlin Germany, while back in the states he has been Success Magazines preferred DJ for corporate events and other direct selling network events in Las Vegas at the Wynn, Mirage and Mandalay Bay.
Verified on both Facebook and Twitter with an outreach of well over 100k people combined, RanKan has deeply imbedded himself into the music and corporate event industry. If you ask him today he will tell you “I’m just warming up!”
