DJ Yusef, Cullen Cole, DJ Theo, and Stan Zeff and DJ BE of Tambor will be playing house music under the pavilion for a mixed crowd of house heads, families enjoying the park and curious onlookers.
While those five DJs round out the organizing crew, special guests DJ Tabone of WRFG-FM's "The Soul Chamber" and vocalist Sheila Ford add more heat to the bill. Ford will perform around 6 p.m.
"Right now, we are the only ones doing anything at Piedmont as far as soulful house. We wanted to be able to bring different nationalities together to be able to freely express themselves through music and dance at an outdoor event," DJ Yusef says.
Yusef says the process for obtaining his event permit was fairly easy, especially once the city and the Piedmont Park Conservancy understood the event's mission. "They were open once we expressed what we were doing and that it was an event that was for all families and children, and the type of music that we're playing."
The event is free and is from noon to 9 p.m.
Below is a video from Ford, and for more details on the kind of music that may not have been welcome and what music to expect at ATL Greenhouse, check out onthelookoutatlanta.com.
