A Conversation with Chosen Few Guest DJ, Mickey Calvin

A Conversation with Chosen Few Guest DJ, Mickey Calvin

Mickey Calvin, a Chicago native began his love for music as a collector at a young age. While he was still a club kid himself, not really intending on being in front of an audience; he began DJing as a hobby. With great influences like his dad – who bought him his first set of “12’s” and the support of his friends Jamil Monley, Scooter B, Eric Jones and Cody Shorter who taught him the craft of Djing; Mickey finally decided it was time to test his skills before live audiences.  Like most DJs in the 80’s and early 90’s, Mickey began to refine his sound by spinning at old school ‘house’ parties and opening in clubs for other House DJs. He’s played alongside some very notable DJs.   In addition to his residencies at The Family Den and VIP Bar and Grill, this year has been an incredible year for Mickey Calvin as he released his first E.P. ON Campo Alegre Productions and was chosen to play the 2019 Chosen Few Picnic & Festival.  As part of my continuing Chosen Few Festival Series,  I had a chance to talk to Mickey about his career and his thoughts on playing this year’s Festival and Picnic.
