DJ Tee LeChé is a native of KC who is looking to make a positive contribution to the industry to which she was born and to the city she loves very much. As a second-generation DJ, her career began as a result of a traffic violation when her father, a retired DJ, worked to pay the fine. Sweet Sixteen’s performance was not exactly how she wanted to spend her time, but when she knew the basics, she knew it would be a means to an end. From there she continued to perfect her art, taking her talents to the University of Central Missouri, where she studied, and the rest as history says.
Ti Lecce is no stranger to other cities, as she is a person who seeks growth and opportunities whenever she can. She knows other cities have a lot of insights to offer and music to incorporate into her sets. After leaving KC in 2018, this woman DJ moved to Atlanta and even went on an international tour with the Asian Doll. But when tragedy struck her world after she lost her cousin and beloved girlfriend lost his life, returning to Kansas City was necessary for her mental health and her grief process. Dealing with the loss of a loved one and the struggle to find a job sent her into a depression she described as ‘hard to get out of’. This was until she learned that she would soon be a mother and that her life was on the rise again.
During this journey of highs and lows, DJ Tee LeChé came to adopt that she is human, doing her best, in the city she loves, with her head set on achieving her goal. Just like her personal odyssey, she understands and graces the advancement of the nightlife industry in KC. Although she loves Kansas City to have some hidden gems with upscale aesthetics and an atmosphere to serve her demographics, she feels we still lack the ‘big city’ experiences of other countries, especially when hosting out-of-town guests.
As a strong supporter of UpDown, she of course participates in the app and notes that her favorite feature is the Hotspot Feature. “I appreciate the effort put into letting KC residents know what’s going on every night in every den of the city. I once got stuck when people would ask ‘what to do tonight?’. The UpDown nightlife app has made this question easy now! I’m just telling them to pull out. “Their phones and navigate them through the download process. UpDown nightlife events are among the trips I prefer. I can almost guarantee I will enjoy!”, Says Tee Lecce.
From the city you said you love wholeheartedly, just know we love you right back. Thank you for providing us with a great atmosphere and great sounds!
