DJ P Nominal
Saturday 11/6 4 p.m.- 6 p.m. at Peace and Justice Plaza

Patrick Edmundson, better known as DJ P.Nominal, grew up in Youngsville North Carolina just outside of Wake County. His nickname was created as a play on words. His goal for any of his events is to leave the people feeling fulfilled, and thinking of their experience as Phenomenal. 

His initial interest in the art of DJing was sparked around middle school. He would listen to various Disc Jockeys on the radio and would discover the art of blending two records together, to create one. DJs like DJ Deluxe were among his favorites to listen to, and after a few years of this curiosity he convinced his mother to buy his first DJ setup.

Throughout P.Nominal’s professional career, the experience for the audience, has always been the #1 priority. To make people: laugh, dance and forget any problems they may have faced before. For however much time he would have them, he would create a phenomenal experience! 

16 years later this task is still at the forefront for DJ P.Nominal. Making people from all walks of life have the experience 

of a lifetime. To make them Laugh, Dance, and party like nobody’s watching! 

“When I am playing music, I am free and so is everyone around me.” -DJ P.Nominal

Jason Adamo Band
Saturday 11/6 from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. at 140 West Plaza

An interesting thing happens when talented musicians ditch gimmicks and masks; honest, unpretentious, full-bodied music is born. The Jason Adamo Band started with the man himself, a truly soulful singer with inspired lyrics and raspy falsetto. Currently residing in Raleigh, NC, Adamo has lived in New York City and Nashville immersing himself in each cities music and songwriting scene.  

Jason Recently received RIAA Gold and Platinum plaques as a songwriter for the song “Beautiful Believer” on Brett Young’s debut album on The Big Machine Label Group.

Adamo’s Joe Cocker-like “bold grit and heart,” and ability to take a captive audience from “engaged silence” to a “floor stomping, rollicking, good time.”

Listen to the band on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube.
