About DJ Soul Sister (Melissa Weber)
Known worldwide as the “queen of rare groove,” the award-winning DJ Soul Sister has hosted her "Soul Power" show on WWOZ FM and "right on party situations" for nearly two decades in her native New Orleans. One of the longest-running live dj artists in New Orleans, the veteran radio programmer and host of the longest-running rare groove radio show in the U.S., vinyl collector, crate digger, party promoter and tastemaker is highly regarded and respected not only in her hometown, but around the globe. Soul Sister has thrown down her seamlessly blended, and vinyl-only, funk/soul/rare groove/discotheque/jazz fusion/true school hip hop sets everywhere from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival to performances in New York, Los Angeles, and London – and in New Orleans at her near decade-long "Hustle Saturdays" weekly residency (now at the Hi-Ho Lounge). She has opened for everyone from George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic to Bootsy Collins to Questlove – and was even personally invited by George Clinton to DJ his 71st birthday party. She is also a tastemaker and recognized authority on funk, soul, disco, hip hop & rare groove music and musicians. She conducts on-stage oral history interviews with musicians like George Clinton at the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and has been featured on TV in film, and in literature.
