This Party for a Purpose seeks to equip youth with the ability to hone their musical gifts and talents by exposing them to the science of musicality.
The DMV music community, led by the most-influential DJs will host a series of industry mixers and live radio broadcasts called “The DJs Afterparty” at AfterHours Recording Studio this summer. Proceeds and donations from these mixers will send DMV youth to the Ascend Music and Media Academy (click link for application and details) at AfterHours Recording studio, where students will learn music composition, recording, DJing, and digital photography.
During the DJs After Party, artists will record live tracks for the DJs After Party compilation mixtape, get exposure on today’s hottest radio shows, and meet and mingle with the elite during these laid back, fun mixers.
Please join a devoted group of musicians, DJs, professionals, fans and friends at the next DJs After Party. Register in advance at http://djsafterparty.eventbrite.com.
More recently, the First DJs After Party was held May 22, hosted by DJ Heat of 95.5 FM and her show, The Rap Up Show, which airs on WEDCRadio.com. There were approximately 60 people in attendance and the event raised $600 for youth summer scholarships for the Ascend Music and Media Academy.
