There are plenty of contests for kids aspiring to be chefs, but there aren’t enough for those aspiring to be DJs who dish out sick beats. That’s why Peavey Electronics® is proud to have sponsored the inaugural #NoChaser International Kidz & Teen DJ Showcase & Fundraiser. Presented by Music Factory Entertainment’s International DJ Cafe and Into Fields Live Entertainment, this unique event took place at Kendrick Recreation Center, in collaboration with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, on the afternoon of April 28. All proceeds from tickets will be used to expand the existing youth program.
To help these aspiring DJs spin their tracks, Peavey contributed its line of Dark Matter™ speakers to the event. With their advanced DSP-equipped power section, the high-S.P.L. (Sound Pressure Level) Dark Matter enclosures deliver best-in-class performance. They feature modern styling and offer four models: DM™ 112, DM™ 115, DM™ 118 SUB and DM™ 115 SUB. These speakers can elevate performances at any skill level and for a variety of applications. At #NoChaser, it was all about the party rocking sets of tomorrow’s DJs.
All proceeds from the showcase will support the expansion of Kids DJ Workshops. This program is organized by Into Fields, a women-owned-and-operated DJ and mobile entertainment company, with support from Peavey. Under the direction and guidance of professional mentors DJ Greggie C, DJ Top Choice, DJ Neek Nyce, DJ Milly Mill, DJ Aye West, and DJ GROOVE, Kids DJ Workshops are designed to teach children ages 7 to 14 the fundamental skills of mixing music, scratching, and beat juggling, which can take them beyond playing music at parties.

Meanwhile, Peavey will keep making pro-audio equipment to take DJs of any age to the next level, including speakers, mixers, microphones and more.
