All proceeds from the event will be donated to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and sponsored by Mister H, Kristin Sancken Fine Art, Wine Academy Superstore and Delete Blood Cancer.
“Over one million Americans are living with or are in remission from, leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma and only 30 percent survive,” says Parks. “I am lucky enough to be a part of that small percentile and will do all that I can to put an end to cancer!”
DJ Quiana Parks’ well sought-after DJing skills garnered some of NYC’s most well-known brands as consistent clients including: Dom Perignon, Adidas, JoyRich, Universal Records and more! Quiana has positioned herself as a self-managed rarity in an over-saturated industry filled with ‘gimmick act’ DJ’s. DJ Quiana Parks captivates her audience of listeners with her passion and talent for mixing her personal brand of mash-up classics, disco, hip-hop and r&b with the popular influence of electro-soul and pop. Her influential visual and music style intertwined with an independent ‘punkish no-holds barred’ attitude has raised eyebrows, pulses and hands in any venue she graces.
