DMC - The King of Rock Live
Innovator, Motivator, Philanthropist, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels changed music and made history when he broke down cultural barriers 25 years ago with his legendary band Run-DMC. 30 million record sales later he continues to inspire & impact the world…





Darryl “DMC” McDaniels is a legendary music icon. For more than 25 years, it would be hard to overstate his influence on popular culture. From the first rap group to grace the cover of Rolling Stone to the first to appear on MTV, Run-DMC changed music, culture, fashion, language and made American history.



30 million record sales later, and nine years after the untimely death of his bandmate Jam Master Jay, DMC still continues to create, inspire and motivate.

He is the co-author of the critically acclaimed autobiography entitled, King of Rock; Respect, Responsibility and My Life with Run-DMC (2001/St. Martins) and in 2006 released an award winning solo album Checks, Thugs & Rock and Roll.



That album featured the hit single “Just like Me” with Sarah McLaughlin, a song DMC wrote after discovering he was adopted, that spoke to his new revelation and began his journey down another life path, in search of his birth mother. While his search struggle was captured in the 2007 Emmy Winning VH1 documentary DMC: My Adoption Journey, the process gave DMC tremendous insight and purpose, prompting him to become an advocate for adoption and children in foster care.



In between his work as a musician, published author and speaker, DMC co-founded the Felix Organization- a nonprofit that works with adoptees and foster children. McDaniels has been invited to the White House by President Obama to address various youth groups on responsibility during a Father’s Day celebration and has appeared before Congress and various State legislatures in support of adoptees and foster children. He has received various awards including the Hard Rock’s Love All Serve All Award for his numerous philanthropic endeavors and the coveted CHILDREN’S RIGHTS Champion Award for his tireless work on behalf of foster children through his FELIX ORGANIZATION/ Adoptees for Children, as well as his work providing other year-round opportunities for children in foster care.



In 2009 as a member of Run-DMC, he was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. DMC recently released two new singles, “Attention Please” featuring Pauley Perrette and “Rock Solid” http://tmapr.com/?p=728 in advance of a new album to be released in 2013. In between his philanthropic work and performing/recording with his band, DMC has been featured on various other artists projects including the new Public Enemy album.

Static Pulse
STATIC PULSE would like to introduce you to HIP-ROC.

Ocean and Tony formed Static Pulse because the music playing in their heads was something unique--music that grooved and had an edge.

Tony spent his youth touring and playing with a rock band but 18 months spent arranging heavily-produced hip-hop hits for a 4-piece rock band changed the way he thought about music.

Ocean toured with his brother in a hip-hop project but was forced to stop when his brother died in a tragic accident.

In each other, Ocean and Tony found a musical brother. With musical chemistry like crazy, they both learn from and push past what each was doing alone.

The rest you'll read in your history books.
MIDCITY - (Set time: 9:10 PM)
MIDCITY

Band Interests:
To continue to make real music for the rest of our lives and be loved for it.
