DJX Summertime Exchange 2017

Join us for a relaxing weekend of hanging out and exploring Philadelphia by day, and dancing the nights away to favorite fusion DJs!  On Sunday evening we will once again hit up the beloved live blues jam at the Twisted Tail.

We have chosen an earlier weekend - June 9th - 11th - this year, so that we can all enjoy more moderate temperatures!
