ABOUT DJ JAZZY JEFF
DJ Jazzy Jeff was born in West Philadelphia and developed a love of music at an early age. Jeff was just 10 years old when he started spinning records at parties using his family’s basement as a training ground for his expert mixing. Since 1985, DJ Jazzy Jeff has wowed us with his flawless turn- table skills, innovative production and musical versatility. From the success of “DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince” with partner Will Smith, to the critical acclaim of his production company “A Touch of Jazz”, Jeff proved time and time again that he would always be a force to be reckoned with. And he continues to represent with his solo projects, collaborations, mixtapes and live shows.
His love of music shines through in everything he does. Over the course of his career, DJ Jazzy Jeff has achieved many accomplishments including a DMC Championship and multiple GRAMMY and American Music Awards and nominations. But he is a humble man who is still doing it as his 2002 hit said: “For Da Love of Da Game.”
A 9-piece outfit formed in 2003 by members of Grammy Award-winning Latin orchestra Grupo Fantasma, Brownout has evolved into a musical force all its own. After garnering multiple Austin Music Awards, the band has continued to produce music that is unflinchingly progressive, while evoking the classic influences of artists such as WAR, Cymande and Funkadelic. They’ve performed at events including Bonnaroo, High Sierra Music Festival, Pickathon, FFFFest, Bear Creek Music Festival, Utopia Festival and Pachanga Fest, while regularly touring the U.S. Brownout has also served as a highly in-demand backing band for artists including Prince, Daniel Johnston, GZA and Bernie Worrell.
ABOUT RIDERS OF THE STORM
Riders Against the Storm (RAS) is a musical movement from Austin, TX that can only be described as 'historic.' As recent recipients of both 'Band of the Year' and 'Best Hip-Hop/Rap' at the 2014, 2015, AND 2016 Austin Music Awards, Chaka and Qi Dada (husband and wife) represent a significant first in the 'Live Music Capital.' As comfortable in small intimate venues as they are on large festival stages, RAS transforms every audience they reach with a refreshing magic and flair that few possess today. In everything they touch, ceremony scrapes the floor and atmosphere - hopping through, from seam to seam, cloaked in their own ideas of regalia and change, Riders Against the Storm casts out an invitation to the world - come and party.
