About this Event

DJ “Jazzy Jeff” Townes 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 turntable 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.”

DJ Scratch has been globally showcasing his DJ skills for over 2 Decades. Because of that hard work & dedication, he is now acknowledged by the Legends before him as one of their own.

Scratch is the man who provided the flamboyance to EPMD's stage show with his visual & technical routines. Because of his performances & professionalism, he's called upon to man the Decks on tour for Jay Z, Diddy, Q-Tip & others.

In 1988, shortly after winning the New Music Seminar Battle for World Supremacy DJ Championship, he joined the RUN DMC “Run's House World Tour.” Befriended by the late Jam Master Jay (“JMJ”) of RUN DMC, JMJ mentored Scratch & converted him from a raw battle DJ to an all around performer & showman. In exchange, Scratch taught JMJ DJ solos that he performed in RUN DMC shows ever since. When the tour ended, JMJ recommended Scratch to the rap group EPMD, who needed a DJ with flair. After EPMD witnessed this young phenom at their first show, they hired Scratch on the spot. The rest was Hip Hop History.
