Intern Insider: daKAH at Grand Performances

This summer, KCRW brought together a creative, enthusiastic  team called the Summer Marketing Interns. This is just one idea they came up with to really put a personal touch on our free summer concert series! This is their story.

KCRW Summer Nights brought daKAH Hip Hop Orchestra to Grand Performances On Saturday June 28th. It had been four years since Los Angeles’ unique ensemble, led by dakonductor Geoff “Double G” Gallegos, performed at the beautiful water court. The unique ensemble of big brass, smooth strings and MCs take the spirit of hip-hop, jazz and classical music and mash it into an eclectic treat for your ears. Pairing great music with lively MCs, dancers and a lot of funk makes this a band you must see live.
