PRLog - April 23, 2012 - RALEIGH, N.C. -- Based out of Raleigh, North Carolina, Rye, aka Ryann Tabor has one of if not the biggest and most current music selections in the area. Since moving to Raleigh from Binghamton, New York his DJ career has continued to grow from 3 years ago when starting out as a mobile DJ to now with more club gigs and residencies throughout the city. He is quickly gaining recognition from not only his current gigs but from his travels, mixes and blogs that he does on the regular. The sound and style that Rye gravitates to is progressive house/ Electro, however, his emphasis tends to be based on what the club/ club goers are looking for, a mix of top 40, dance and hip hop. With his ability to read the crowd and mix the songs that keep the party going from start to finish gives a true test to his craft and ability as a versatile DJ.

DJ Rye joins 25 other North Carolina DJs to play at this years Soundfest 2012 -- NC's FIRST DJ Showcase by the DJ's for the DJ's.
The event will be held on Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 4:00 PM at Longbranch. Located just 1/2 mile inside the Raleigh Beltline (I-440) at the Wake Forest Rd. exit, Longbranch is a multi-club entertainment venue in Raleigh NC and has showcased some of the biggest names in the US.
Soundfest started as a vision by Kristen “DJ KStones” Stoneman to put together an event showcasing DJ's. Stoneman states: “In an industry where the "DJ" is such an important part of the nightlife, Soundfest was formed to show homage to our talented NC DJ's in hopes to create unity between genres and the community, and gain respect of our peers.”
Last year in its inaugural event, 15 DJs participated and drew in a crowd of over 300. This years show will feature 26 local DJ's from the Carolina's and is sure to bring in a huge crowd.
Sponsors for the event include: Red Bull, Vitamin Water, Lazyday, DRL Toons, N The Mix Inc., Fourever Proud Apparel and Troy Jacques Jermaine PR and event production.
