DJ, Producer and Promoter Marcus Wade completes and anchors the inaugural Dance In The Park Charlotte dance music festival.  “It’s going to be a fun filled day of great DJs and musical journeys” said Marcus Wade.  “I just happy to be a conduit and to finally see my dream come into fruition.”

DJ Marcus is recognized as an innovator and driving force in the Carolina house music scene. His music and production style is a fusion of soulful and deep house to jackin’ house.  Focusing his musical style on house music in 2000, it is the uniqueness of his music selections, blends and live remixes that make him stand out from the DJ pack. DJ Marcus meanders through melodic basslines and impactful vocals to take the audiences on a spiritual journey.

In 1998, DJ Marcus renovated and opened Club Salt Shaker in North Carolina bringing a new club concept into region. In 2001, DJ Marcus created and launched the independently syndicated radio program “Cross Culture Radio”, a 2 hour radio show that featured the latest in soulful house music in several terrestrial radio markets and internet stations across the country. Today, Cross Culture Radio has been rebranded as Salt Shaker Radio and is currently aired weekly on internet radio stations worldwide, including Ibiza Live Radio (Ibiza, ES) and House Station Radio (Rome, IT).

In 2006, Salt Shaker Productions was established as an event production company to promote dance music events. Salt Shaker Productions has produced several festival events in the state of North Carolina and continues to create and produce events during the Winter Music Conference, IPM Rome and in Ibiza. DJ Marcus launched Salt Shaker Records in early 2010, focusing on the creation and promotion of quality and impactful house music.

Salt Shaker Music Group was created in 2013 as an umbrella organization to manage the business of Salt Shaker Records and Salt Shaker Productions. DJ Marcus and the team at Salt Shaker Music Group are creating music brands and products aimed at impacting this world through dance music.

In September of 2014, DJ Marcus with DJ and production partner Gary ‘Jackmaster’ Wallace established the RELEASE! Classic & Soulful House Party in Charlotte, NC. The party proved to be an instant success to the house starved market in Charlotte. The monthly party is still active and growing today.  Marcus’s latest production is Dance In The Park Charlotte where he is the Director.  The purpose of this dance music festival is to two fold:  (1) to celebrate the journey of dance music from Disco to Deep House and (2) to highlight and feature the talented crop of DJ’s and Producers in the Charlotte region.

It is through these avenues that DJ Marcus will fulfill his creed, “The world is my stage. House music is my voice. It’s time to be heard.”

Dance In The Park Charlotte’s inaugural dance music festival kicks off on August 5th from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm at Rolling Hill Park, 4340 Rolling Hill Drive.  Dance In The Park Charlotte is a celebration of dance music, from Disco to Deep House.
