DJ Jack Fraust
Starting out as a teen club promoter and host of kid parties, DJ Jack Fraust would hit the adult nightclubs alongside his older comrades. A teenager himself, with his fake ID in hand, he would spectate, study and party until the lights came on. In 1998 he began bar tending and taking photos in legendary South Dallas night clubs UTB, Lady Love and Cry Baby’s where he quickly made a name for himself. In spring of 2004 he reported to work at the Legendary Peep-N-Toms and the manager asked him to fill in for the DJ and the rest is history. Fraust has held residencies at almost every urban shake joint in DFW. From Flash Dancers and Elegance Cabaret in Fort Worth to the nationally branded Club Onyx. He is currently resident DJ at Dallas Gentleman’s the oldest and longest standing urban strip club in DFW. DJ Fraust is known as The Legendary, Uncle Fraust and The OG in the business.
