Alan King is one of Chicago’s original house music DJs and a member of the legendary DJ crew “The Chosen Few” (Wayne Williams, Alan King, Jesse Saunders, Tony Hatchett, Andre Hatchett and Terry Hunter).. In a 2007 interview discussing his return to Chicago, Grammy Award winning DJ and producer Frankie Kunckles observed: "One of the best things about returning to Chicago is catching up with some of the home-grown talent. I like to hear the spin that some of them put on house music - that's what sparks me. The brilliant Andre Hatchett is the perfect example. He is one of two guys in Chicago who have the biggest impact on me. The other is Alan King. They are the truest to the house music form, yet there is soul, personality and individuality in what they're doing. They're the real thing."
In the late '70s and early '80s, the Chosen Few DJs were among the DJs primarily responsible for spreading the soulful brand of dance music that came to be known as "House Music" at legendary Chicago night spots, including The Loft, First Impressions, Sauer's and the Playground. Still together more than 30 years later and with the addition of their youngest member, legendary DJ and producer Terry Hunter, the Chicago DJs make regular DJ appearances in Chicago, New York and around the world and bring you the annual Chosen Few Old School Reunion Picnic every July in Chicago, one of the largest house music festival events in the world. Started in 1990 as a "reunion" of the Chosen Few DJs and friends from the early house music days, the Chosen Few Picnic now attracts tens of thousands of house music lovers from throughout the United States and around the world.
