Theo Parrish, born in Washington DC, bought up in Chicago and musically educated in Detroit, is widely considerred one of the world's best DJ's and selectors.
In 1994, Theo Parrish received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from KCAI with a concentration in Sound Sculpture, a form of orchestration using live instruments, looped recordings, the human voice, and numerous other sound generation devices. While in Kansas City, Theo continued to impact and be impacted by dance music, helping to bring a dormant underground music scene to life.
Theo Parrish moved to Michigan in 1994, where he became heavily involved in Detroit’s underground music scene. Since his arrival, he has helped spawn a resurgence of dance classic selections among local DJ talents.
‘Love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, performer or DJ. Everything else stems from that core, that love. With that love, sampling can become a tribute; An expansion on ideas long forgotten, reconstruction, collage. Using the same understanding openly and respectfully can turn DJing into a spiritual participation. It can turn a few hours of selection into essential history; Necessary listening through movement.’ This personal philosophy gives shape and direction to the distinctive sounds that are created by Theo Parrish.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome one of the true greats of contempory soul and house music to come and play for Leftfoot in the intimacy of The Hare and Hounds 250 capacity main room.
Tickets are extremely limited for this show so we strongly advise advance tickets.
