The latest news from Seattle, Portland, Spokane & Boise:

  • INDUSTRY: we no longer are taking urban projects as we do not have the membership to support those projects. While we still believe in the power of a pool to promote music at street level in the nightclubs, the realities of the current climate in the music industry & DJs have changed. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime.
