DJ Kincaid

Kincaid fell in love with house music as a teenager at his first underground warehouse party in SF in 1992 and was immediately inspired. In 1996, purchased a pair of Technics turntables, with his saved up cash, and it was on from there. In disco and house music, Kincaid found a love and passion for djing and has been doing it ever since. Kincaid has been collecting disco/funk, soul, classic-rock, reggae, and down-tempo records for many years, and is comfortable going these routes also, depending on the venue and event. Kincaid’s affiliations: About The Music(ATM) and Grooves-in-the-Park produce a wide variety of parties including: outdoor, park, night-clubs, undergrounds, boat parties, community festivals (including the yearly Oaktoberfest event), and many gatherings at home - as a special guest in Oakland, and events close in the SF area, since 1999. These popular gatherings feature live special guest dj’s from around the gloge, dance, culture, art, and amazing crowds which continue to spread the music, vibe, and love today. Kincaid shares his music at many venues in and out of the bay area, out of state, and abroad. In his many years of spinning records, Kincaid has very much enjoyed playing alongside some of the most talented dj's and producers in the business including: Doc Martin, Terry Francis, Mark Farina, David Harness, Oscar P, Timmy Regisford, Cevin Fisher, Roy Davis Jr., and many more. Always close to the music, Kincaid has previously worked at Tweekin Records in SF, and part-time artist-relations assistant for Om Records in SF. Kincaid proudly holds a Bachelors of Science Degree and has over 20+ years of experience working in the live sound engineering field which has landed him many live sound engineering gigs with artists such as: Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt, KD Lang, George Clinton, Joni Morris, and many more. Kincaid's passion for music keeps him going; but the love for, and from the people, is what he enjoys most!
