FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PHILADELPHIA — May 23, 2022 — Get ready for more free, fun, “flipped, turned upside down” nights when West Philadelphia native DJ Jazzy Jeff sets up his residency at Rivers Casino Philadelphia. His next show will be on Saturday, July 2, at 8 p.m. on the Jack’s Bar + Grill stage.

“I’m so excited to be coming back to Rivers this summer,” said DJ Jazzy Jeff. “The dance floor was packed with amazing energy for my last show in March. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again in July!”

Guests will be dancing to Jeff’s energetic mix of classics, chart-topping hits and more when he takes over the Jack’s Bar + Grill stage during his residency in July, September and November, and in February 2023.

“We’re thrilled to have a Philadelphia legend like DJ Jazzy Jeff join us for recurring performances,” said Justin Moore, general manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia. “He’s one of the most recognized names in the industry, and it’ll be great for guests to have more chances to see him.”

DJ Jazzy Jeff rose to fame as half of the hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince with Will Smith, and has wowed crowds with his flawless turntable skills, innovative production, and musical versatility since 1985. The duo became the first rappers to win a Grammy award in 1989, a monumental milestone in the genre. Jeff has built on that success with a second Grammy, multiple American Music Awards, a DMC DJ Championship, and the creation of his acclaimed production company, A Touch of Jazz.
