Rory Hoy is a multi-award winning DJ/Music Producer/Filmmaker. Speaking about his first lessons with Jim he said: “ I always remember those early DJ Lessons I had with you, and always appreciate all the great advice you gave me! I hope I’ve taken it with me in the DJ sets I’ve done since then, it was a great grounding for me, as well as being great fun! You must have had lots of patience, as I was very raw material in those days, and I owe a lot to you.”
