Today is a great day for Chicago and the House Music Community as our beloved Chosen Few DJs traveled to the nation’s capitol to meet the leader of the free world..that’s right President Barack Obama. The team and their special guests made history with the visit to the White House and represented Chicago very well. Sharing this historic trip on their Instagram account and fans of the Chosen Few showed them love and support for this awesome occasion.
In 2015, The Chosen Few DJs celebrated their 25th Anniversary of their Chosen Few DJs Old School Picnic, well with how the event has expanded it can no longer be called a picnic..It’s a festival. Last year’s event the group laid out the red carpet for the “househeads” and EarHustle411 was right in the mix of it all. The Chosen Few DJs never cease to amaze our staff with their many different levels of success and with President Barack Obama’s video shoutout last year and him being a “self-proclaimed” Househead really sent the Chosen Few DJs to another stratosphere.
EarHustle411 congratulates The Chosen Few on their years of success as a team and making history. Keep representing Chicago to fullest…We SALUTE you!!

About The Chosen Few DJs
Part of the first wave of DJs and producers in Chicago who created the sound that became known as house music in the 1970s and 1980s, The Chosen Few DJs was a group of popular DJs from Chicago’s south side—Wayne Williams, Jesse Saunders, Tony Hatchett, Alan King and Andre Hatchett—who played their unique brand of soulful dance music to huge crowds throughout the city. Since 1990, the group has organized the “Chosen Few Old School Reunion Picnic”, one of the largest dance music events in the world. In 2006, the group added DJ and producer Terry Hunter, and in 2012, DJ and producer Mike Dunn. In 2014, Hunter and Williams produced the GRAMMY nominated hit “It’s Your World” by Jennifer Hudson feat. R. Kelly, while their production work on “Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics” won an NAACP Image Award. In 2016, the collective expanded their signature event into the Chosen Few DJs Music Festival, featuring two days of music, a house music symposium and other events.
