The Chosen Few Djs:
“House Music” is a Chicago original — a genre of dance music known across the globe that was born nurtured and developed in Chicago by young DJs artists producers party promoters and club owners whose collective contributions forged a new sound from elements of disco Euro dance music rock and of course drum machines.
Beginning in the late 1970s and into the early 1980s a group of popular teen DJs from Chicago’s south side — Wayne Williams Jesse Saunders Alan King Tony Hatchett and Andre Hatchett — played their unique brand of soulful dance music to huge crowds in packed basements high school cafeterias and legendary nightspots including Sauer’s the Tree of Life First Impressions the Playground and the Loft a club of historic importance in the birth and development of house music. Wayne Williams formalized a DJ collective originally named “Chosen Few Disco Corp.” in 1977 to meet the high demand for the sound eventually adding Saunders King and the Hatchett brothers. In 2006 the group added its first new member in nearly 30 years legendary DJ and producer Terry Hunter and in 2012 welcomed DJ and producer Mike Dunn into the ranks.
Along with a handful of other legendary DJs including Frankie Knuckles at the Warehouse Ron Hardy at the Music Box and Lil’ Louis on the west side of Chicago the Chosen Few were the DJs primarily responsible during this period for popularizing the underground dance music that came to be known as house music.
In 1990 the Chosen Few DJs and their longtime friend and Chosen Few member Kim Parham had the idea of inviting old friends from the early house music days to a “reunion picnic” in the park behind Chicago’s Museum of Science & Industry. Beginning as a small gathering of family and friends and later dubbed the “old school picnic” the reunion became an annual event “The Chosen Few Picnic & House Music Festival”.
The Picnic has grown into one of the largest and most highly anticipated house music festival events in the world drawing more than 40000 house music fans from nearly every continent. Each year the Picnic and its Festival parties feature music and performances from world-renowned guest DJs and dance music artists and of course the legendary Chosen Few DJs.
