February is business as usual with a Replay Lounge patio gig, a couple High School dances, dj lessons at Break Free Hip Hop School Kansas City, and a Taproom gig at the end of the month. The weather has been crazy, I’m not sure if it’s going to be hot or cold but I am praying for less snow. I hope to run into some of you at these shows and I plan to have some new recordings posted on the site very soon. Let’s ride!!!
In January Dj Proof starts a new residency at the super cool Broadway Arcade in KCMO! Solid Sounds ranging from Funk to Soul, Electro to EDM, Hip Hop to House and much more! The Proof is in the pudding!
December is always a crazy time for me. I have children so the holiday season is very special. I also have a birthday this month so I tend to get excited. I guess at my age we celebrate milestones not birthdays but either way there are quite a few gigs that I’m looking forward to. I’m anxiously anticipating my birthday party gig at Stockyards Brewing Co. on the 20th. I have some great guests that I will be sharing the event with. My longtime friend Bill Pile will be spinning with me. Aside from being super nice on the mix, this guy is responsible for giving me my start and letting me open for some very big names in Hip Hop early on in my dj career! Fellow Midnight Marauders G Train and Johnny Quest will be joining me on the turntables and my homie K Flex is going to represent as well. After Christmas I will play inside the Replay Lounge for an all vinyl set. I tend to get very “involved” when I play real records! It is my favorite style of djing and I think there will be a little something for everbody in the mix that night.
I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for riding with me through this past year. I value all of your opinions and treasure your support. Happy Holidays from all of us here at the House of Proof and Sound Syndicate! Ring it in safely and I hope to see you very soon. Peace!
A giant shout out goes to the homie Dj Highnoone! I was blessed to attend Dj Thanksgiving 2018 at his home earlier this evening and it was a damn fine event. Scratch sessions with dj’s galore and an amazing spread of flavors and drinks. Too many notable appearances to list names but I can guarantee that this will become a yearly event that I will not miss.
I played for a family wedding in Hutchinson this past Saturday and it was awesome. I always enjoy returning to my hometown to spread love and play music . My cousin Dominique Hoover and his lovely wife Sidney looked very happy together and although it was a damn cold weekend, seeing my aunts and uncles and distant cousins made it all worth it.
This weekend I play a new venue in Lawrence and I hope you all can join me @ Crystal’s Spot. I’ve been busy making beats and working on some original music so stay tuned. The Proof is in the pudding!
