: I was born in DC and raised in PG. As a kid I always remember momz and popz entertaining guests and hosting parties all over the city. Coming up in the 70's listening to the sounds of Kool and the Gang, the Gap Band, P-Funk, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, the Jackson Five, and the Sugahill Gang... All off of 8 track tapes! By the late 80's I was introduced to what I believed to be the best creation on earth, the 12" record along with 2 turntables and a mic. And so the story begins. At the age of 14 I started hosting pool parties in the apt complex I was living in every weekend. I pursued my dreams by spinning such classic artist as BDP, Rakim, RUN DMC, Kool Moe Dee, Slick Rick, Dougie Fresh. By this time 1450am was off the hook with that undaground hip-hop and oh yeah let's not forget dat DC Go-Go ISH. Chuck Brown with Run Joe, Reddz & the boyz had Movin & Grovin plus had us doing the happy feet. Junkyard was crankin "Sardines & Pork-n-Beans" and Rare Essence was hittin on "Do you Know What tyme It Is"... oh how i miss them dayz! Now we move into the 90's and everybody wants to party. "1992" with the start of a 2 man crew called 2 Deep, we stepped on the scene to gain street fame with great success. Later that year an additional member was added to make the triangle complete. Now known as 3 Deep we set our foundation in the surrounding neighborhoods by attending local parties. By this time we started to acquire a following so we would pretty much bring the party with us. We began hosting our own parties with attendance in the hundreds! Moving forward In 2008 'Stray Katz Entertainment" was born. Our #1 goal is starting out on a solid foundation and building great relationships. Our clients are based off of word of mouth & referrals. Quality and Consistency is a core value.
