WPGC’s DJ Flexx took over the stage at Howard Theatre on April 21 for the making of his latest video “Polo & Chuck” featuring IamDonJuan, written by Don Juan and produced by JS aka The Best.

The song, crafted by DJ Flexx, was written to pay homage to Bounce Beat king “Polo” of go-go band TCB  & godfather of go-go Chuck Brown, who both recently died.

Dozens of fans came to support the making of the video, including Flexx’s daughter Renee; four daughters of the late Polo’s 13 children – Roquel, Renikqua, Rakayla, Ahjenai; his cousin and niece; two of Brown’s five surviving children -Nekos and Wiley; Pablo, Tati and DJ Heat from the Pablo Morning Show; WPGC on-air jocks Mr. Peter ParkerTony Redz, DJ Reddz; the Street Team and the entire WPGC family.

After looking at the people around the theater, Don Juan couldn’t believe the turnout, telling WPGC, “I’m just overwhelmed.  Look at all the love here.  I feel accepted now.”   Juan is originally from New York and says he was often treated like an outcast by his peers.

A notable go-go supporter was spotted in the crowd Mayor Vincent Gray stopped by the video shoot, stopping to tell WPGC, “Go-Go defines what our city is.  When they think of D.C., they think of go-go [music].”

When asked by his WPGC family about the video, Flexx gushed, “I feel good.  It’s done.”  DJ Flexx is celebrating his 20th anniversary with WPGC.

Reginald “Polo” Burwell died at age 42 from a severe brain hemorrhage in 2013.  He remained in a coma for 3 years until his death.  Chuck Brown died at age 75 from complications with sepsis as a result of pneumonia in 2012.

The video was filmed by House Studio and is set to be released by Memorial Day.

Check out the masterminds behind the song, DJ Flexx and IamDonJuan.
