Join us on Saturday, October 21st, at Off Broadway at Fusia Fest for a special event titled "Give the DJ Their Flowers: Tribute to DJ Grandmaster Flowers." We will honor the legendary DJ Grandmaster Flowers, also known as the "Father of the Mobile DJ Movement" and a key influencer of hip-hop's DJ pioneers in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Five renowned Saint Louis-based DJs will lead festival-goers on a mesmerizing journey through the various sub-genres within Hip Hop history, culminating with the headlining act, "Time Traveler," Saint Louis Legend G.Wiz paying homage to DJ Grandmaster Flowers by celebrating his groundbreaking contributions to DJ culture.
Prepare to be transported back to 1970 as G.Wiz skillfully blends various genres that were a hallmark of DJ Grandmaster Flowers' style, including rock, disco, funk, R&B, and jazz.
