Overview

Parade welcomes the NYC legendary dj Jellybean Benitez John "Jellybean" Benitez is legend in the dance/house community as a producer, remixer, artist and DJ. He has produced the some of the biggest performers of our time including Madonna, Whitney Houston, Debbie Harry, Sheena Easton and many more. What we really love about Jellybean is his dj talents that have been rocking dancefloors since the days of Studio 54. His NYC underground event Ain't Nothing But a House Party is legend. You are not a serious soulful house dj if you don't have one of his JellybeanSoul label releases in your crate. This man has put out hit after hit. Today his dj schedule is as busy as ever. We are proud to have him return to Baltimore and deliver his signature set to heat up the Factory 17 dancefloor. Also on the lineup are two heroes of the dancefloor --Terry Thompson and DJ OJI. The Chicago native Terry Thompson has been spinning records since the late 70's and early 80's in famed west coast venues before relocating to Baltimore in 1987. He has promoted some of the biggest parties over the years including the massive Future Classics events held during Winter Music Conference. He also has releases on the CodeRed/Defected label. The New York native DJ OJI has been rocking clubs in Baltimore and DC since the late 80's. He and his POJI label record partner DJ Pope are coming up on their 25th anniversry of putting on hits in the dance community. We are excited to have him in the lineup as well. Parade It's about love. It's about disco. It's about house. We are creating a vibe where smiles, hugs, and everyone is dancing to house and disco until the sunrise. In the spirit of the Shelter, Glitterbox, Groove Odyssey, and Soul Heaven we present Parade. Music Talent Jellybean Benitez Terry Thompson DJ OJI Get ready to dance as we take you on a rewind to the soulful days of the Winter Music Conference, epic road trips to NYC, and fast forward to the disco-fried dancefloors of the UK.
