“A firm believer in stripping crowds of inhibitions by creating an amazing atmosphere with the help of a wide-ranging musical array.”
That’s how Kansas City native, Sean C Houcks describes his party fueling persona, DJ High EyeQ. Coming along with him is an audible journey from every corner of the musical imagination. Being born to near 40-year-old parents as well as having siblings in their teens, EyeQ grew up on everything from soul, funk, disco, blues & jazz. All of which became infused with his own enveloping immersion in both urban music and the hip-hop culture after being introduced to them as a teenager by his brother returning home from college. All of this exposure would help lay the foundation on which he would later curate his wide-ranging DJ ear. Today, this translates into the ability to play sets suitable for corporate functions to patios to nightclubs deftly.
A very active member of his local community, DJ High EyeQ is no stranger to the ups-and-downs of an ever-changing music scene. His love for music and the art of DJing is just the beginning as he is also the developmental mind of “The Kickback Giveback”, a monthly charitable event aimed to provide aid to his hometown of Kansas City by allowing its participants to use donations of clothing and food as barter for entry.
It’s his belief that music can serve as a cure-all for the stresses we all endure and rhythmic framing for our favorite moments, regardless of genre, tempo, style, or release date. That as well as a desire to blur the lines of cultural divide is his mission each and every set. DJ High EyeQ…Host, Philanthropist, Sonic Storyteller and simply put, one hell of a DJ!
