DJ Alan King is, according to a recent article in Crain’s Chicago Business, living a double life. He’s an employment litigation lawyer for the Chicago office of Philadelphia-based firm Drinker Biddle by day, and a longstanding member of the Chosen Few Disco Corp. by night. Influenced by DJs like Michael Ezebukwu and Frankie Knuckles, King got his start DJing at juice bars and parochial schools for teens on Chicago’s South Side during the early 1980s. He is part of the team that produces the annual Chosen Few Old School Reunion Picnic each year in Jackson Park during July 4th weekend.
