    Hi everyone, 
    First and foremost, THANK YOU ALL for your continued support of JJFP. For those of you that got to come backstage and meet Jeff & Will, I think you felt there genuine appreciation for your continued support over the years. 
    Putting these shows together was no easy task. When you try and schedule shows for one of the busiest movie stars in the world to perform with one of the busiest DJ's in the world it is quite challenging to say the least. But we DID IT! 
    We are working on bringing the shows to other cities in Europe and to the US. It's just that pesky word - schedule - that seems to be the biggest obstacle. But don't fret! We are going to make more shows happen. And I promise, once I get confirmed dates I'll be sure to report in on the forum so you can all plan accordingly. 
    To you guys that I met in Blackpool - it was SO NICE TO FINALLY MEET! 
    To all the fans in cities we haven't visited yet, I look forward to meeting you all soon. 
    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Hi everyone! 
    I hope you have all been well and 2016 has started off being a fantastic year for you. We are going to announce all of the spring tour dates tomorrow so I thought I'd touch base with you.  If any of you plan on attending the shows and would like to say hi to Jeff or take a photo with him after the show, please be sure to drop me an email and I'll work it out for you. 
    Aside from this tour, Jeff has been playing in the States A LOT and had a wildly successful SXSW.  He did an interview with Ebro Darden on Beats1 where he talks about never being worried about being replaced by an ipod. Here's the link in case you want to give it a listen: https://itunes.apple.com/us/post/idsa.1cc98f68-ec92-11e5-9609-3cab93fc3d23
    He also remixed Anderson Paak's "Room In Here" which available exclusively on Apple Music. 
    Last month, Jeff flew a bunch of musicians and producers in to start work on a new project. I can't confirm or deny the title of the new project BUT i can tell you we've been using #M3 as the hashtag. :) 
    We have also started working on this year's PLAYLIST Retreat which is super exciting. In case you missed it, this is the short video we made of the retreat we hosted last August. 
    That's pretty much what's been happening in the world of DJ Jazzy Jeff. 
    One last thing ... I know you are all wondering and the answer is YES!  Yes, Jeff & Will will be on a stage again in 2016. We have been working tirelessly to try and get a JJFP show on the books so stay tuned!

    Hello everyone, 
    It's been quite some time since I've checked in on you all so I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their summer.
    Thanks for posting this up AJ.
    As most of you know, this project started two years ago and really ignited Jeff's love of producing again. I can tell you that he is so proud of the work he and Dayne are putting out and he's excited to keep working on NEW music. Who will that be with? You never know .... :) 
    Thank you for all of your support from shows to music, videos to merch. 
    We hope you enjoy Memoirs of Dayne Jordan and if you do please SHARE it on media.

    Nic61974 got a reaction from Ydfer3jjaj in Jeff @ Bonnaroo   
    Hi everyone,

    Hope you're all having a lovely week. Jeff is in Nashville, TN at rehearsals for the Superjam at Bonnaroo which is in Manchester, TN.
    Bummed that you are going to miss it? Well you're in luck (and so am I) because they are going to stream it!
    This is the first time they are streaming a Superjam so we are thrilled to be a part of it.

    Here's the info:


    Bonnaroo also will be webcasting a live SuperJam for the first time. This year's SuperJam features RZA, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Schoolboy Q, Earl Sweatshirt, Solange, Chad Hugo (of The Neptunes), Lettuce and special guests.
    The webcast will be available for viewing on Bonnaroo.com, Ustream.tv/Bonnaroo, and other partner sites. Check the websites for the performance lineup.
    If you are a hip hop fan, the special guests are pretty rad.

    The Superjam is scheduled Friday night 12am - 2am Eastern Standard Time.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Hi everyone,
    Can you please send me your pictures you took at either the show or the lunch? I'd like to put them up on Jeff's site/FB, with your permission of course. You can send them to nicole@djjazzyjeff.com

    So Jeff had such a nice time talking with you all. He was blown away at the thought that went into the questions and a handful of them actually make him really sit and think. One question in particular blew him away. In fact, he said it may have been the best questions he's ever been asked.

    "What would 2013 Jeff say to 1986 Jeff" really got him. I'm excited to see how he answered it.

    Nic61974 got a reaction from Ale in Spin Doctor Q & A   
    Hey guys,
    Obviously I'm in a position where I get to speak with Jeff everyday and hear a lot of stories but I can honestly say he amazes me all the time. Having had a 30+ year career, sometimes I forget that he's been involved in music, and so many different aspects of the business, for a very long time. I wanted to share this story with you because even in my position, I still get star-struck and/or amazed talking with Jeff.

    We were having breakfast a few weeks ago, (Jeff had 2 chocolate pudding cups and a cup of coffee lol) and we were talking about his mom. He was telling me that his mom never wanted to be front and center talking to press or anything like that and always kept him grounded, even at the height of JJFP. He said that they had "won an award" and there was a huge crowd waiting for him and Will at the airport and followed by a huge celebratory party being held at Jeff's mom's house. He said that in the middle of the party, his mom ran out of bread so she called him over, gave him $5 and told him to go to the corner store and buy bread. Jeff tried to protest saying, "but mom, this party is for me, we just won this big award". His mom said, "get your butt to the corner store and buy me that bread". He said it didn't matter to her that they were "famous" he needed to go and get the damn bread.

    Fast forward to a few weeks later. I was looking for a particular video of him on youtube and started watching some old JJFP interviews.
    I randomly stumbled upon this:

    I was shocked. Jeff had literally told me this story over breakfast and to hear it be part of an acceptance speech, 20 year prior was mind boggling. I called him and said, "hey remember that story blah blah blah" and showed him the video. He laughed.

    Most of you have met Jeff and know that he is extremely humble. I told Jeff that every now and again I get caught off guard because I'm not talking to Jeff, my boss, or Jeff, my friend, I'm actually talking to "THE DJ JAZZY JEFF" and this was one of those moments to for me. He laughed again and said he knows how I feel because sometimes he forgets that he's that guy too.

    So I agree, he needs to write and autobiography!

    I'm glad you enjoyed the Spin Doctor Q&A. It was really important for him to give back and talk to the DJ community for a little bit.
