A Marriage Of Music
THIS IS NOT A WEDDING but it IS a night of Soul, Funk, Boogie, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass, Disco, Nu-Disco, House, Turntablism, Artwork & Battlegrounds Breakdancers.
DJ Big Wiz (Pharcyde, Aesop Rock, Hail Mary Mallon, True DJs of Dallas):
Beginning his DJ career in 1983, DJ Big Wiz has since conquered Houston, New York and the world with his turntablism skills and knowledge. Since his early days with Rap-A-Lot Records, Wiz has performed globally with artists like The Pharcyde, Aesop Rock, Hail Mary Mallon, Chris Whitley and more. He has made appearances on MTV & Fuel TV, rocked stages for thousands at music festivals such as Coachella and Bonnaroo, and has helped to create, test and shape the technology of DJing today for some of the top equipment and software manufacturers in the business.
While Hip-Hop is where his roots are, DJ Big Wiz is a master at reinventing himself to not only stay current in the field and genre that he loves, but to be able to move any crowd in front of him in the way they should be moved no matter what the style of sounds all while putting on an amazing turntable show.
DJ Leo J (Too Fresh Productions, Battlegrounds, True DJs of Dallas):
As an amazing turntablist, Leo J has provided direct support for DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Z-Trip, DJ Mix Master Mike, DJ Nu-Mark, Rebirth Brass Band, Marc Rebillet, Ronny Cheing, Spoon, Sarah Jaffe, The Polyphonic Spree, and more.

DJ Rick Preston (Viva Recordings, CA):
Rick's musical journey is a rich tapestry that began in the early 80s when he first immersed himself in the grooves of disco and funk. However, it was his exposure to the booming alternative music scene of the 80s that truly honed his DJing skills and set him on a path towards something greater - House Music. As the genre evolved, so did Rick's love for it. His passion for House grew stronger with time, and he became deeply involved in promotion and DJ gigs within the underground music scene.

Rick Preston's list of performances reads like a who's who of the best events and clubs in the Bay Area and beyond. You can find his name on the line-up of renowned parties like The Gathering, Stompy, Salted, Groove Kitchen, Boogie Buffet, Cool World, and more. His residencies at esteemed venues such as San Jose's F/X, Cardiff Lounge, The Continental, The Oasis, San Francisco's iconic 1015 Folsom, and The Endup have solidified his status as an integral part of the local music scene.
What sets Rick apart is his distinctive DJ style. His sets are renowned for their deep and funky vibes, taking the crowd on a captivating journey through the realms of soulful vocals, disco classics, tribal rhythms, tech-house beats, mesmerizing acid house, and mind-awakening spoken word. When Rick Preston is at the helm, you're in for an unforgettable musical experience.
