Dear Summer III

Jada Lorraine Haitoff, commonly known by her moniker JADALAREIGN, is a Brooklyn-based international DJ, sound curator and event producer. Jada is known for her vast knowledge of the musical spectrum, and her eclectic selections of high energy dance music. She marries a variety of rhythms and genres to send powerful vibrations through any dance-floor. In addition to collaborating with notable parties like Everyday People, Soul in the Horn, Papi Juice, Fania, Boom Bushwick, 3rd Shift, and A Club Called Rhonda, Jada curates a monthly party called PERK, a haven for individuality, movement and expression with a sexy dance-focused soundtrack and live instrumentation. Jada is the former programming director for Halfmoon BK, a black-owned grassroots online radio platform, and the former social media manager for DW Artists, the artist agency branch of Discwoman. She has DJed for artists like Nitty Scott, Smoke DZA and Kari Faux. Jada has most recently organized a workshop and discussion series, centering women, nonbinary and LBGTQ people of color, with topics including DJing, audio production, event production, community building and professional development.

Davon Bryant, aka Dreamcast, is a 27 year old lifelong resident of Washington DC, formally the Chocolate City. As a singer/songwriter/producer, he has his hands touching the roots of what makes DC a soulful place. His influences are DC’s own Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, blended with his love for production from artists such as Kid Cudi, Sampha, Melo-X, and others.


Not the type of guy to sell you on gimmicks or an image, First Family resident DJ 1-hunnered has kept a low-profile while rocking parties for at least a decade. Whether playing for a crowd of 5 or 500, any set from 1-hunnered is guaranteed to make you move.

First Family co-founder and resident Mo Yasin thoughtfully blends sounds, genres, and geographies. If you've had the pleasure of hearing him play — out and about in New York, or at the regular parties he throws with friends in D.C. — you'll recognize that quality as something of a signature style of his.



*** $25 day of show. Ages 18-20 by advance ticket only. ***
Advance ticket sales end one hour before doors.

A party that needs no introduction. First Family is back with DEAR SUMMER III, the third installment of a function that continues to push the envelope. Every year brings something new and this year will be no different as new sounds and installations fill the room for the entire night. Brooklyn’s JADALAREIGN and DC’s own Dreamcast join in on the fun alongside residents 1-hunnered and Mo Yasin for a summer night to remember. As always, come with a smile and come ready to dance.

First Family is an event-based community of multimedia artists, designers, DJs, event producers, and above all, friends. We create intimate experiences centered around the things we love.
