About

Missionary began in 2004.  That year found us at a synthpop show in a little Washington seaside town called Ocean Shores.  It was strange to think anything could happen that far out on the coast so we went.  It was supposed to be a 2 day event.  We went the first night.  It failed miserably due to some terribly poor promotion (probably geography too).  It was us, the bands and a bunch of old peeps.  However we got some very cool acoustic sets from the acts.  Oh, I forgot to mention it was at an Elks Lodge.  Lot’s of old folks!  So we got to experience what bad promotion was all about.

Later that year we flew to Dallas to see Iris.  We called them in advance.  Andrew and Reagan were very accommodating.  They let us in early and we got to experience for the first time everything that went in to putting a show together.  They played with Cause and Effect and delivered a wicked show.  It was in that taxi, on the way back to the hotel, that we decided to begin doing this back home.  Not because there was a big promotional void, but because we are genuinely passionate about this music.

Crazy fans of Depeche Mode, Bekka came up with the name “Missionary” from their song “Sacred”.  We think “Missionary” fits our purpose quite well.

It was Mike from Musicwerks (SEA) that helped us with our first concert in Seattle.  Iris, Cause & Effect and our new PDX friends, Son of Rust.  We’ve been chasing that incredible high ever since!

In 2005, on a promotional run to Portland, we met Derek, Promoter and owner of Corrosion Records.  We quickly realized each others strengths and have been attached at the hip ever since.

Missionary Promotions books and produces events for people who enjoy subculture.  You’ll find us just off the beaten path catering to folks who enjoy individuality.  Individuality expressed in their dress, music and lifestyle.

Outside of managing touring acts and working with local bands, Missionary Promotions and DJ NoN cooperatively operate Dementia.  Founded in 2005 by DJ’s NoN and DJ Carrion, Missionary has helped build Dementia into the Northwest’s longest running industrial dance night.  You’ll also find Jason spinning there often under the name DJ Missionary.
