Philadelphia has been known for their quality DJ’s for years. To recognize this, tomorrow is Philadelphia DJ Day.
On Wednesday, September 24 at 2:00 P.M. at Forrest Hill (4849 N. Parkside Avenue) Jonene Taddei and I, Kamau Stanford, present the First Annual Philadelphia DJ Day!
After years of reaping their aural contributions to the international, national and local music scene, we came up with the idea to chronicle the greatness that is the Philadelphia DJs. We figured what better way to pay homage to the folks who have given Philly – and the whole world – so many beautiful grooves, than to bring them together for a big “Gordon Park-esque” shot. So we went after old school cats like Cash Money to new school dudes like White Tees and White Belts and of course the legend, DJ Jazzy Jeff, to be a part of it all. We’ve even contacted Mayor Michael Nutter, as he too once was a Philadelphia DJ.
Check the after party featuring these DJ’s at G Lounge (111 S 17th St) from 9PM – 2 AM, cover is $10.
