One may think that he has done it all! But no, MC Mario became co-owner of Club 1234 (www.1234montreal.com) in Montreal, Quebec in 2004. Known for its lifestyle, nightlife and attractive people, Montreal has always been at the forefront of dance music and club culture. During the height of the disco craze, 1234 was open seven nights a week entertaining every celebrity visiting Montreal. It was not uncommon to spot the nightlife icons of those days, such as The Village People, Donna Summer and Grace Jones.
On September 8th, 2004, Club 1234 was reborn with a gala opening night party and over 1500 people in attendance and there has been no looking back since opening night with a full house every week-end! Who better to bring on the music than DJ celebrity MC Mario!
MC Mario also continues to develop his own record label, Tycoon Records, an independent label in Canada distributed by Sony BMG Music Canada. The Tycoon compilations serve as a unique tool to develop independent Canadian dance tracks and international Sony dance pool material.
