DJ Amen Ra
Amen Ra is at home when controlling a crowd; in love with the opportunity to express himself through music and fill a room with positive energy. Having spent time on both coasts, he has observed the styles of East and West Coast DJ’s and created his own. His diverse musical background is translated through his DJing, especially in his ability to shift between genres without missing a beat. Experienced DJ’s adjust their selections to the crowd and venue, and are comfortable switching things up unexpectedly. Amen Ra’s acknowledgment of this explains why he’s become such a hot commodity on the DJ market, and why he can rock any party with ease.
The JoGo Project is a genre-blending ensemble inspired by the musical styling of Chuck Brown. Founded by Saxophonist (and Chuck Brown alumnus) Elijah Jamal Balbed the band performs with the mission of keeping Go-Go music alive. The group features several DC natives, as well as musicians from around the country who have since claimed DC as their home. JoGo is known to put on an eclectic live show that excites and unites audiences of all walks of life.
