12 p.m.- DJ Theo and Friends
Pushing the boundaries of electronic dance music in clubs and on radio airwaves has been one of Theo's musical mantras. His sets are energetic and eclectic and encompass his vast knowledge of dance music. While his new and creative events continue to propel his demand in venues. He believes that thinking outside the box for venue locations is the only way this genre will survive and give access to people that cannot always travel to a major dance venue.
His musical knowledge and thirst for promoting this genre led to his former hiring as seminal Music Director at Party 105FM/NY, while his technical ability and product knowledge has led to sponsorship by Pioneer DJ. With his successful Nervous Records compilations, continued track releases, weekly radio show on WPTY-NY, Theo continues to be on the pulse.
Join Theo and his artistic collective as he brings together dance groups and live art installations throughout the day- all performing to his mixes which transcend the decades.
