Seattle DJ Academy presents Jesse Saunders
the Originator of the House Music Sound from Chicago
Jesse will be giving a small, intimate talk before the show!
Whether you're a DJ, producer, or just interested in the history and origins of House music, this is going to be must-see.
This pre-show talk will start at 8:00 pm and is included with admission. The music will start at 9:00 (unchanged).
Jesse Saunders is the architect of what we all know as House Music, using a blueprint of old school funk, disco, R&B, early pop and hiphop. He wrote, produced and released the first documented House record titled 'On & On' in 1984 through his own label Jes Say Records. He went on to pen hits including 'Funk U Up,' 'Real Love', 'Body Music' and the platinum selling single 'Love Cant Turn Around', which served as the foundation for a funky and soulful new sound in electronic music. Jesse has appeared in countless documentaries, magazine publications, books and conferences (WMC, ADE, RBMA, among many!) over the years and has also written his own semiautobiography House MusicThe Real Story'. He has released countless successful singles and albums on his own labels Jes Say and BrokenRecords and has worked with and influenced key DJs such as Grammy Award winner Roger Sanchez, Marshall Jefferson, DJ Pierre, Farley Jackmaster" Funk, Steve Hurley and Frankie Knuckles, among others. This Chicago cat continues to maintain his status as the head of the House.
Local support from Eva, Fronic, and rising stars from Seattle DJ Academy!
