To kick off our first DJ theme night at the 9:20 Special, we are going to pull from the rich catalog of female musicians, composers, and bandleaders.
We’ll DJ the innovative music of the great female bandleaders and composers from throughout the twentieth century plus tunes from a broad swath of the many talented and creative women making this music today.
While we’ll certainly play music from popular creative powerhouses like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, we’re going to try to expose you to lesser-known artists and recordings as much as possible. We especially want to emphasize on the role of women as bandleaders, composers, arrangers and featured instrumentalists.
Afterwards, we will publish our set lists along with notes about why each tune was included. Do send us any suggestions / recommendations if you have any.
See you there!
Nirav and Dhruv
