As the saying goes, it’s good to celebrate people while they’re still around and that’s exactly what happened Sunday afternoon at the tribute to the legendary Disco T.
The event served as a fundraiser for the iconic DJ who is battling neck and throat cancer. This brother, also known as Tredis Adams, left the hospital to witness the outpouring of love at the Fine Line Music Café. When he showed up to the event, the crowd went crazy clapping and cheering him on.

People in the Twin Cities remember the Soul Technicians, a DJ outfit that Disco T was a part of in the ’90s, and all the members were on deck to get on the mic or spin a few tunes.
This event was like a DJ convention with producers, promoters, emcees and a slew of people from out of town. People came from all over the country to pay homage to the beloved DJ, with roughly 375 guests or so who attended the Tribute/Pisces party.
The word around town is Disco T had the best mixed-tapes in the Twin Cities. He stated that he “doesn’t have much to give” but he wants to share his extensive library of music that he accumulated during his years of DJing.
No one can dispute the joy his tapes have brought to Twin Cities music lovers throughout the years. Disco T loves the community and it was evident at this tribute that the community loves him back. What a beautiful sight to behold.
If you were unable to attend the fundraiser, you can still make a donation by going to the Disco T GoFundMe page.
