Polo Grounds Music, The Core DJ’s, FILA, Capital One Bank And Juggie of Q93 All Give Back To New Orleans Families
Polo Grounds Music, The Core DJ’s, FILA, Capital One and Juggie of Q93 — in conjunction with the Core DJ’s Retreat — will unite in efforts to provide support to five struggling New Orleans families during the Core DJ’s retreat which is from Thursday, March 13 to Monday, March 17, 2008. A special dinner attended by Juggie, Polo Grounds Music artists Diamond and Lil Josh & Ernest, along with several of the Core DJ executives will be held for the five families on Thursday night at Montrel’s Bistro in New Orleans, LA. This dinner provides the opportunity for this group of industry elites to present the families with various gifts provided by Polo Grounds Music, FILA and several other sponsors.
“It’s great to see the music industry not only contributing to our economy, but also giving back to our community in a personal way,” says Juggie, New Orleans Clear Channel Q03 radio personality, “it just goes to show that the music industry has a lot of heart.” Polo Grounds — which was brought on to this great cause by Founder and President Bryan Leach’s non-profit organization FanMale Inc. — along with The Core DJ’s, FILA, Capital One and Juggie all heard about the obstacles that these families have jumped through due to Hurricane Katrina, and will now provide them with necessary tools to embrace their road to recovery.
Tony Neal, CEO of The CORE DJ’s, founded the organization in December of 2003. Tony’s purpose for organizing a DJ coalition was to empower and educate the core of the music industry, the DJ’s. To date, the Core DJs have expanded to international lengths with a Latino division, DJ’s in Canada and as far away as Australia. Some of the most influential DJs and music executives are members of The Core DJs including, New Orleans own Juggie of Q93 and host Phat Phat N’ All That, Big Tigger, Clinton Sparks, The Baka Boys, Mr. Collipark and Kid Capri to name a few.
The Core DJs Retreat acts as a reunion for DJs by inviting all DJ organizations to network with one another while attending various listening sessions, artist meet & greets and several artist/label showcases which have seen participation from Atlantic Records, Warner Brothers Records, Def Jam, Virgin, So So DEF, Sony BMG, Rap-A-Lot Records, Jive, Bad Boy Entertainment and a host of others.
