Hoosiers, we just found your Halloween plans for you. You can thank us later. Kilroy’s Dunnkirk is hosting one last Halloween/Homecoming rager for all you seniors, so get into your raciest costume and get ready to party: DJ and producer Jesse Marco is coming to blow up Bloomington on October 31st.
22-years-old New York native Jesse Marco has quickly solidified himself as one of America’s premiere DJs. As a teenager, Jesse, heavily influenced by his parents’ vast record collection, began to fuse rock, punk, soul, and funk with the hip-hop of his generation. “My parents’ musical tastes really shaped mine. My first cassette was Led Zeppelin and my second was Sam Cooke.”
Soon, Jesse began DJing prep school parties around Manhattan, largely filling his crates with his parents’ records. He laughs, “I was the only 16-year-old deejay in the city playing Buddy Holly and Lauryn Hill.” Downtown crowds, however, quickly gravitated to his eclectic sets and by the time the young DJ graduated from high school he was a staple behind the velvet ropes inside New York’s most exclusive nightclubs.
Jesse’s encyclopedic knowledge of music and remarkable skill have since taken him around the globe spinning private parties for celebrities including Heidi Klum, Russell Simmons, Spike Lee, Denzel Washington, and Karolina Kurkova. Jesse has become a favorite of the fashion and art worlds playing high-profile events for Calvin Klein, Vivienne Westwood, Donna Karan, Diesel, GQ, and Kaws. Tom Ford hired Jesse to deejay his Milan Fashion Week runway show, stating Jesse’s “musical taste reminds me of my childhood.”
So check Jesse spin as the headliner this coming Monday, and come ready to rage. There’s even a best costume contest with prizes like a free spring break trip sponsored by Xtreme Trips or a free bottle of champagne. Face it- you’re not going to class Tuesday.
