Pennsylvania’s own, Tim Parsons, has been an EBE Drummer and DJ for the past four years. Along with the drums, he also plays the piano.
The Penncrest High School graduate has been fostering and growing his musical talents from a young age thanks to the ongoing support of his parents. Due to his love of music and personal drive, Tim was able to further channel his musical abilities into becoming a top list DJ performer as well.
We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Tim and interview him for this Q&A piece in an effort to get to know him better and discover what it is that makes him tick.
Q: What genre of music is your ‘specialty’?
Q: What instrument(s) do you play if any?
A: Drums and piano
Q: Who is your hero?
A: My parents are my heroes because they introduced me to music and have always supported my ambitions, even pushing me beyond what I thought I couldn’t accomplish.
Q: What is your favorite movie?
Q: What is your zodiac sign?
Q: Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about you?

Q: What is your go-to at karaoke?
A: Ghost Town DJs “My Boo”
Q: If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why?
A: If I had to pick one year, it would be 1994. With all of the legendary hip-hop albums from many of my favorite artists, 1994 has to be one of the biggest years for the genre. If I could stretch the rules, I’d love to travel back to all of the 80’s so I could catch the end of the funk phase and the beginning of the East vs. West Coast hip-hop phase.

A: Knowing that playing music is a gift and that this gift is something that I’ve been blessed with to share with others.
Q: What is your favorite thing about your career?
A: Seeing people dancing and enjoying the music is something that never gets old to me, especially when clients express how much they appreciated having me play at the end of the night!
