About the DJs
DJ CAPTAIN CHARLES
A New Orleans legend, DJ Captain Charles is known for spinning the best old-school and grown and sexy music to date. He is one of the first DJs to ever spin at the world-renowned Jazz Fest and has opened for the likes of Cameo, The Ohio Players, Frankie Beverly & Maze, and more.
DJ RAJ SMOOVE
Dubbed “The greatest DJ in the world” by Lil Wayne, Raj Smoove is arguably one of the most successful DJs to emerge from New Orleans. He’s collaborated with Stevie Wonder, Mannie Fresh, PJ Morton, NBA Youngboy, and Mia X — to name a few. Raj has also appeared front and center at Essence Fest and Saints and Pelicans games.
Before becoming Bell Biv Devoe and New Editions’s official and exclusive DJ, DJ Shakim got his start on tour with Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat. Since then, he’s worked with Bow Wow, Diddy, Mary J. Blige, and more.
The Black & White Affair is going down at The Historic Carver Theater. Doors open at 10p and you must be 21 to enter (30-ish preferred). Tickets are available now and can be purchased here. All ticket sales are final — no refunds.
