Some pictures taken at the DC Loves Dilla – 9th Annual Tribute and Fundraiser Concert held at the Howard Theatre in Washington, DC on Thusday, July 17, 2014 by Mary Nichols (DJ Fusion of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast).

James “J Dilla” Yancey was a GRAMMY award-winning producer who inspired millions with his music including artist like Common, Raekwon, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and many many more. On February 10, 2006 just three days after his 32nd birthday, J Dilla passed away after a long time of suffering with Lupus.

Cultural Curator Munch Joseph and HedRush Music created the DC Loves Dilla movement as a way to celebrate J Dilla and honor his career works. "Carrying on the musical legacy of J Dilla for the 9th year and counting is something HedRush and myself look forward to. Personally, it’s my way of paying homage to a great creator as well as doing our part to continually add balance to urban music. Dilla’s music accomplishes that on many levels," says Munch Joseph when asked the motivation behind the Tribute Concert ad Fundraiser.

All pictures taken with a Sony A58 camera with various lenses.

2009 03 14 – 2802 – Washington DC – Shamrock Festival – Flogging Molly

Final act of the Shamrock Festival at the RFK Stadium Fairgrounds in Washington, D.C.

Despite the cold, despite the rain, despite the crowds, and despite the long haul just to get a bite to eat or a drink: the crowd turned out en masse for Flogging Molly, and there was certainly energy in the air.

However, mirroring the quality of their beer, the Bud Light Stage seemed to have some audio problems. With almost every song, the microphones totally cut out and the audience was left with only the sounds of themselves. Furthermore, as far as the band could tell: they were still on. So they kept playing, leaping, and moving all about… it was like watching Flogging Molly mime their songs.

They did catch on a couple times that the sound was giving out, but the technicians seemed unable to do a thing to fix it… even their top songs such as "Drunken Lullabies" and "Rebels of the Sacred Heart" cut out; and to add insult to injury… their last song of the set (and the last song of the entire Shamrock Festival) cut out.

Bravo Flogging Molly, of what we could hear; but ouch to DC, Bud, and the fans.

Over the years, these efforts have paid off, and the festival now has more artists, more food vendors, and more retail vendors than in previous years. In 2009, for the first time ever, the Festival received a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.As ATA-DC is preparing for the 11th Annual Washington, DC Turkish Festival, they are proud that this exciting, colorful, and rich event has become a DC tradition that contributes to the city’s ethnic, cultural and religious diversity For more information on Turkish Festival, check out their website at http://www.turkishfestival.org/

Balloon Festival In Washington DC

May 14th, 2016

Washington and the suburbs like the New Jersey, Seattle and the Sun City are all very much famous for their beautiful balloon rides. These balloon rides allow the mind to fly from the worries and stresses of the day to day life for some time and enjoy the nature’s beauty. Due to this reason a balloon festival is organized in Washington which allows people a healthy recreation but also helps to generate some funds for the needy. In this festival about 50 teams take part in the balloon rides and 25000 spectators watch them flying. The colorful balloons create a heart rending scene for the public. The various events that occur here are morning balloon launchings and landings, evening balloon glows. The other traditional games are Hare and Hound and Desert glows. The festival does not only have balloons in the air, there is a lot more for entertainment. This includes various food stalls where you can buy almost anything that pleases you.

Loud music and DJ’s create a whole atmosphere of fun and jubilee. At the end of the festival there is a firework show. This tickets of the festival are affordable even for a common man. They are $ 7 for adults, $ 6 for seniors and $ 5 for juniors. The kids less than five years of age are not charged. The tickets are on per day basis. Which means that in a three day festival you will have to buy a ticket daily. Also there are strict rules that once you are inside the gate you cannot leave it for any damn reason. If you have gone out for some propose you like to fetch something from the car you cannot re-enter without buying a new ticket. So it is always handy to check that you have brought everything you need with you when you are going inside. The money that is generated out of the tickets is given to the orphanages, community center, local charities and schools. So attending the festival is not only fun but also a service. The festival begins in the morning at sunrise and ends at around 10’o clock at the night. Morning liftoffs take place around 8’o clock in the morning. Many people gather around in the morning to enjoy the view. However the balloon lifts are largely dependent on the weather that particular day.

The lifts can be preponed and post poned as per the weather and you need to be well aware of it before time. The balloons soar in the sky all day and land in the evening around 7 to 8pm. The landings are greatly appreciated and the crowd is fond of viewing them. Hare and Hound races are the most thrilling and cherished of all the races in the festival. Such races are held on all the days. The hare is the balloon that places a target on the ground at a place where it landed and the hound balloon chases the target and tosses a small bean bag in the target. the hound that chases the largest number of targets in two days gets the maximum points and is encouraged with a cash prize. The desert glows is a beautiful race that is played in the evening. Many photographers take photographs.
