DJ SOUL SISTER (WWOZ/NEW ORLEANS)
"All the way live since 1994, DJ Soul Sister specializes in rare groove, deep funk, classic old school funk, breaks, underground disco, true school hip hop, D.C. go-go and "real sounds with your behind in mind."
The host of the 15-year running (in July '09) Soul Power show on WWOZ 90.7FM in New Orleans (Saturdays 8-10pm CST - live at www.wwoz.org) and a live specialty dj artist who has taken the local nightlife by storm, Soul Sister was one of the first US radio DJs to highlight the rare groove format and is one of the few female DJs to spin and mix 100% funk (on 100% vinyl) and related original styles in her live performances.
DJ QUEST (SCRATCH HAMSTERS) w/SPECIAL GUESTS
Influenced by the hip-hop and electro styles of the early 80’s, DJ Quest has contributed to the DJ's art form by bringing a more aggressive scratch tactic to the battle scene. DJ Quest, featured in documentary SCRATCH, coined “Hamster Style,” a unique technique of reversing the set up of turntables into a mixer to facilitate new styles of scratching. Quest is one of the founding members of Bullet Proof Scratch Hamsters/Space Travelerz and a veteran of the DMC, New Music Seminar and countless other battles. DJ Quest has also expanded musical horizons by forming the San Francisco based experimental jazz-hip-hop trio, Livehuman. On the road, Quest has also accompanied Latyrx (Quannum Projects), The Bomb Hip-Hop DJ’s, Future Primitive Sound Session and Space Travelerz and Mike Patton’s Peeping Tom. Quest has also collaborated on recordings with: Dan “The Automator” (Handsome Boy Modeling School), Blackalicious, Rob Swift (Xecutioners), Z Man (One Block Radius), Sacred Hoop, Eddie K, Topper, DJ Zeph, DJ Q Bert (Do It Yourself vol. 2), Wide Hive collective Variable Unit and The DJ Project.

LA FEMME DEADLY VENOMS (Deeandroid, Cellskiii, Lady Fingaz and KAT 010)
Having recently placed 2nd in the DMC national team competition, this talented group of females consisting of 3 turntableists and an extremely talented producer and keyboard player, are a force to be reckoned with. Between the four of these talented ladies they have blessed some of the most prestigious stages across the world and played with an incredible roster of talented musicians from a variety of genres. Their special JAM ON IT! set is not to be missed.
LIVE PERFORMANCE FROM:
TOAST, a dynamic female rap-duo from San Francisco, is the hottest thing since sliced bread...literally. Comprised of Rachael VonCookie from Portland, OR and Erika B. of Los Angeles, these ladies have an untouchable, no-holds-bar attitude when it comes to both stage presence and lyrical content. One of the most entertaining new groups on the SF scene, they win audiences over by coupling their controversial and raunchy subject matter with head-banging Adam Curry would be jealous of.
