DJ MamyRock, aka Ruth Flowers, Is Releasing First Single

MamyRock On! If Only My Grandma Were This Cool

Actually, forget about my grandma — I wish I were this cool. At 69, Ruth Flowers, aka MamyRock, commands crowds of thousands on some of the hottest dance floors in Europe. In her spare time, the Bristol, England, native gives talks on Charles Dickens at the local historical society. Take that, Samantha Ronson!

Before she became a DJ, Flowers owned a fabric store, sang Andrew Lloyd Webber covers with a group called Lana and Friends, and ran a marathon at age 57. When her husband passed away, she took up DJing. It just gets better.

At her grandson's birthday party, Flowers realized that "they don't have games such as pass the parcel nowadays. They have disco." As she recently told the Times:


"It was very loud and very flashy, flashy, flashy lights. I was struck by all the joy they were getting from this music and all the energy and I said to my grandson, 'Nana could do this.' He said, 'That would be so cool'."

After connecting with a record producer, Flowers learned the ins and outs of digital mixing, then got to work on her signature blend of house, electro-rock, and classic rock. This month, she's releasing her first single. You know you want to see a video of MamyRock in action (warning: explicit language), so check it out below.
