Get ready for a free, fun, “flipped-turned upside down” night when West Philadelphia native DJ Jazzy Jeff is “kickin’ it” at Rivers Casino Philadelphia. Guests will be dancing to classics from Jeff’s solo projects, collaborations, mixtapes and more when he takes over the Jack’s Bar + Grill stage on Saturday, March 5, at 8 p.m.
DJ Jazzy Jeff, who rose to notoriety as one half of DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince with Will Smith, has wowed crowds with his flawless turntable skills, innovative production and musical versatility since 1985. The duo became the first rappers to win a Grammy award in 1989, a monumental milestone in the genre. Jeff has built on that success with a second Grammy, multiple American Music Awards and a DMC DJ Championship, and created his acclaimed production company A Touch of Jazz.
“DJ Jazzy Jeff is one of the most recognizable names in the business, and we’re thrilled to have a Philadelphia legend on the Jack’s stage,” said Justin Moore, general manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia.
Over the years, Jeff satisfied his passion for sharing good music by traveling the globe. With two annual European tours; regular tours of Canada, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East; and shows across the U.S. throughout the year, he has taken fans on a musical journey. Though busy playing for fans worldwide, he hasn’t stopped producing great music. His newest release, “Evil,” debuted at No. 1 on Traxsource and continued to chart for weeks after its release.
