What IS House Music?

Greetings all!

Time for a new mix courtesy of the good DJs at Caliber!  This one was recorded by head honcho Nate Seider as more of an “Intro to House Music 101” type of offering and exemplifies our love of all things Classic!  We get a lot of requests from clients and guests alike for EDM, House, Techno and all sorts of other styles at the events we play.  However many times we realize that their idea of House music may differ just a bit from *our* idea of House music.  So here you go, a little House Music crash course!

Chicago in the 80’s and 90’s was an amazing incubator and testing ground for the records, DJs, producers, label owners and clubbers that defined the term House.  Originally used to describe the type of music they were hearing at Frankie Knuckle’s Warehouse (a dry club located on the 600 block of Jefferson st.), this beat morphed almost overnight into an international movement that is stronger than ever.  Chicago is also a city of the Full Time DJ, home to hundreds of open-format DJs who make their living strictly off of entertaining.  For this reason it’s become known internationally as a hot spot for some of the world’s best DJs, and a great training ground for wedding DJs we might add.  Are you looking for a wine country wedding DJ with city-slicker skills?  Do you want a Bay Area wedding DJ who can kick it with the most discerning of clientele?  Are you looking for a Queer wedding DJ who actually understands and honors the Queer roots of today’s culture? Are you interested in having a vinyl wedding DJ that knows their history and can deliver? Or are you just in the market for a non-cheesy wedding DJ who can give you and your guests the time of their lives?  Well look no further, you’ve found it!
