This wasnt an easy decision. Witnes has been a part of many successful DJ nights in Houston, which is why we gave him the award for Best DJ in our Best Of Houston® 2005 edition. Witnes says all the work hes done made it hard for him to leave. I was scared of letting go of everything Ive built for myself down here, he says. [But] I cant worry about whats going to happen here in the scene, he says.
For those who are worried, fear not. Rock Boxs other resident DJs, Dayta and Squincy Jones, will host Speaker Box, a spin-off event at The Backroom. Witnes says he hopes the scene continues to grow, because he owes his success to it. If it wasnt for all these people that have been supporting me, there would be no me, there would be no Rock Box. 9 p.m. 903 Richmond.
