DJ Tutt (David Pierce Tuttle) is a DJ/producer from Chicago that has been spinning parties all over the greater Midwest and beyond since 2007, spinning House music on vinyl or CD’s. Tutt’s brand of House music leans towards the deep, jackin’, tech, and funky-house subgenres which when all wrapped into one, create a continuous, uplifting groove that makes it nearly impossible to not feel good when listening to.
Tutt's love for the jackin' house sound started as a kid growing up as a professional dancer in Chicago, the birthplace of House music. In the spring of 2012, Tutt started his own event production company, Pierce Event Productions Inc. that has since thrown many underground parties that have brought music, art, and entertainment to people that love to go out.
