Kiss & Tell Guest DJs: Jonathan Schmidt and Sean OMeara
As a DJ, record junkie, and amateur carpenter, Jonathan has been traveling the East coast for 10 years soaking up all things deep, groovy, and often strange. With roots in Philadelphia, he has held residencies at the 808 and Future/Retro parties during a 3-year turn in Boston. In 2006 he became a resident of the Montreal-based Statik parties and an official DJ for Archipel of Canada. Since moving to NYC, rare and well-received appearances behind the decks have given him a reputation for being a indelible track selector who rides the lines of deep house and techno. For Kiss and Tell, he will be joined by longtime cohort Sean "Dropkick" Omeara, professional knife twirler and fulltime password over-complicater, as the two trade a tumbler full of whiskey and a virtual bag of funk and soul, gradually unleashing the wootsauce as the night wears on.

Kiss & Tell Resident DJ: Bethany Benzur
Bethany Benzur is our resident disco encyclopedia and vinyl purist from Georgia. Recently emigrating to the Big Apple, Bethany has been ruling the dancefloor at Kiss & Tell parties with her Southern charm. The DJ nerds are regularly awed by her selections, and she joins us each month to warm you up with her mix of raunchy electro, glamorous dark disco, and soulful street funk. She is sometimes joined behind the decks by her husband (and italo disco nerd) Gabe.

Kiss & Tell Hostess, Photographer, Designer: Seze Devres started Kiss & Tell as an extention of her raunchy knitting circle at Trash Bar in Williamsburg on December 7, 2005. At first only a few people showed up to her new party. However wiith a lot of help, support, and encouragement from her friends the party has become its own little beast. When she is is not dreaming up crazy themes and guests for Kiss & Tell she is a full time artist, photographer, designer and curator.


Kiss & Tell Hostess: Deanna Asta met Seze, her fellow lady of the nightlife, a few years ago at The Bunker and they bonded instantly. Seze asked Deanna to help co-host Kiss & Tell once it moved to Rose Bar and she happily obliged. Deanna always shows up to Kiss & Tell with a bag full of tricks. She is our decorating goddess and makes sure everyone at the party is looking great and having a good time. She somehow convinced every guest to wear fake moustaches at the French pop party, and she dragged a vintage Nordic Track machine to the aerobics party! She holds a degree in design and over the years she has art directed/managed many design events and parties in NYC through her previous employment with When she's not enjoying the nightlife she's busy earning her second degree in Psychiatric Nursing.
