Profile:
Originally from South Minneapolis, percussionist/drummer, producer, composer, dancer, choreographer and athletic trainer, Kirk Johnson, has enjoyed much success in the entertainment business for over 20 years. He started playing percussion, and street dancing at age 13, in his Minneapolis neighborhood. In the 80’s while attending the University of Minnesota, where he majored in business, Kirk was a ‘first call’ drummer in local bands around the Twin Cites. During this time, Kirk and his dance troupe were discovered by Prince at First Avenue in Minneapolis, and were selected as featured dancers in the film Purple Rain. Kirk continued performing/touring with Prince as a dancer/choreographer and percussionist, and starred in many music videos, and the film Graffiti Bridge. In the 90’s, Kirk worked at Paisley Park as a producer and drummer, and started his own company, Kitchen Records (3). His success continued in the new millennium, as he continued appearing/touring and recording all over the world with national and international artists Prince, Lorie Line, and Candy Dulfer. Currently, Kirk keeps busy playing drums with Twin Cities groups, Belladiva, and The Truth, and tours with European recording artist Candy Dulfer. In addition to his musical endeavors, Kirk is a driven business owner of a personal and boot camp training company called ‘Club Hipfit’. He also enjoys family life at home in Chanhassen, Minnesota with his wife Lori, and daughters Kayla and Lanelle.
