Bonnaroo 2012

Bonnaroo was a blast this year as I was mixing and scratching in the StubHub Digital Music Lounge.

During the weekend I spent 4 days teaching the DJ Scratch Academy for anyone who was interested in learning how to work the turntables and scratch on a record.

At the end of the Scratch and Burn class, I made a recording of their work and saved it to a free StubHub flash drive for them to take home and show their friends!

Cell Tek has been in business for five years and is seeking a grant to expand its cell phone refurbishing facility. Last year alone, they refurbished over 25,000 cell phones with no outside funding.
