With a strong ear for rhythm and an ever-expanding record collection teeming with rare gems and unstoppable beats, DJ Cooky Parker has made it his mission to never let up and always serve the dance floor with taste and style.

With a focus squarely on finding the most infectious records of the late ‘50s & early ‘60s, a near-obsessive desire to discover every incredible 12″ single of the post-disco era, and a deep love of modern hip hop/r&b and club music, DJ Cooky Parker remains at once firmly rooted yet teetering on the edge.

Cooky’s long running “In the Cooky Jar” soul night dance party residencies at the Eagles Lodge in SE Portland are routinely sold-out. Cooky Parker also hosts a long-standing Friday evening radio show on KMHD, Friday Flashback, an homage to rare soul, R&B, funk and the intersection of jazz.

Cooky Parker’s real-life alter ego is singer/composer/drummer Scott Magee. After a decade of swinging for the fences with local bands Heroes & Villains, Nick Jaina Band, Loch Lomond and Y La Bamba, Magee founded Ural Thomas & The Pain in 2014, which was named Willamette Week’s “Best New Band” in 2014, and continues to actively tour the US and Europe.
