#AwayTeam Presents Etc: a late night exhibition of thought feat. DJ RQAway / The Poet named Cubs / / phlegm / Sharita A. Sims / Sunni Patterson / Thoughtful Ensemble

"a late night exhibition of thought"

"An invitation to yourself sounds silly, but at this very special event we intend to give you just that. An invitation to dwell within, if only for a moment, a version of yourself where you are open, freed and excited by your thoughts and your interpretations of strings, percussion, words, movement and even silence, orchestrated by New Orleans' most profound artists. Etc is a one time experience you don't want to miss."
 - DJ RQAway



About DJ RQAway

DJ RQ Away is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, where free drums of Africa met vibrant horns of Europe to create Jazz, and the home of musical pioneers like Louis Armstrong, Professor Longhair, Master P, Allen Touissant, Mannie Fresh, Christian Scott and Eddie Bo. 

Growing up, he’d spend much of his time tuned in to local radio and any station on television that played music. Early on, RQ Away found love with artists of genres spanning House, New Wave, Hip Hop, R&B, Pop, Funk, Disco, Gospel, Reggae, Jazz, Rock, Bounce, and Europop. If it felt good, he loved it. Having just made a decade in the craft, his love for so many sounds continues to influence his unique vibe-creating ability and has cemented his name as a leader in the DJ world of New Orleans.

Inside and outside of New Orleans, DJ RQ Away makes waists sway and brows sweat to curated beats while sharing the stage with major artists like Erykah Badu, or rocking crowds at his own parties in his hometown. He’s opened sets for Ludacris, Moses Sumney, Jay Electronica, Camp Lo, Kelis, Maxwell, Rich Medina and many others. As he grows, DJ RQ Away has afforded himself the opportunity to produce his very own events. His NOLA based event The Tipping Point is one of the cities longest running weekly events and has attracted the dance moves of Solange, Robert Glasper & Cassey Benjamin, DJ Kemit and Mario Van Peebles. His quarterly Lagniappe party boasts a regular attendance of over 500 guests.

DJ RQ Away presents his curated events, apparel, educational & community building workshops, and even a city wide membership program via network and brand #AWAYTEAM. The brand grew out of his want to use the power of his following for more than just dancing.

DJ RQ Away’s reputation for making any space his own has made him a household name within the Crescent City and amongst a nationwide community of music lovers and vibe connoisseurs.
