I’m so sad to learn about this. Teri Bristol was a pioneer in setting the standard high for female DJs! She was a true club DJ, and a master of her skills. Although an attractive female DJ, she never relied on her beauty, nor her female attributes in order to get gigs and tour! She totally ruled as a DJ period! One of our best is gone! May she rest in peace!

Chicago has lost a treasure and many are heartbroken to hear of the passing of my dear friend Teri Bristol. She brought so much to my life as well as many others. Music Plant Records has lost a family member and she will be deeply missed. Sending prayers to Valerie Schein and Jenny LaPorte who were both as close to her as a person could be. Teri invited me into the studio for my very first Remix with Georgie Porgie, she was a dear friend and even worked with me at my day job. We had so many adventures together. I know she is banging beats in Heaven with Tom-E in a DJ booth somewhere. Love and light to Miss Teri Bristol. 💔
