My Fine Arts degree from UMBC developed an artistic eye and a comprehension of Art Theory. My apprenticeship with a renowned National Geographic Photographer taught me how to apply all that theory in a fast paced environment. But alas, that was a long time ago and I have been developing my style from that foundation for the past 7 years.

Ayre Rayde and FAME join forces to raise funds for deserving youth

Examiner: March 15, 2012

This Saturday night, March 17 will mark the date for the most highly anticipated reunion in music in the Washington, DC area. The Original Ayre Rayde will take the stage at Camelot by Martin’s in support of the non-profit Foundation for the Advancement of Music and Education (F.A.M.E.), founded by Toni Lewis, and the deserving students who will directly benefit from this performance. The event will be held from 9pm until 2am.
The fundraiser will feature performances by F.A.M.E. students as well as AJ Musik, an up and coming R&B/Pop artist from Philadelphia who will be performing his single “Over Us” and who is managed by former Ayre Rayde member, Marlin Wiggins. La’Rez, an artist from Capitol Heights, Maryland who is with Nu Globe Entertainment will also be performing as well as nationally known recording artist, Vinnie D., who will be performing his hit ‘$55 Motel’ and some of his new music as well. The featured act, Ayre Rayde, will also premiere their newest single, “Cookie Jar”. The event will be hosted by TMOTTRadio.com personality, Go-Go Michelle.
Ayre Rayde, who came into prominence in 1986 with their hit song, “Sock it to Me” has some very distinguished alumni including District Six County Council Member for Prince George’s County, Maryland, Derrick Leon Davis who, in his musical career as a saxophone player, goes by the name “China Boogie”.
Councilmember Davis shares, “I’m mainly looking forward to getting a chance to honor a tremendous friend in the best way we could’ve thought of– throwing an enormous party that also benefits others! I’m looking forward to playing ‘Special Hello to all Our Friends’.”
The friend that Davis refers to is the co-founder and manager of Ayre Rayde, Daryl M. Spencer who sadly passed away in July 2011. Ayre Rayde and F.A.M.E. joined forces for this benefit and have created a scholarship in the name of Daryl M. Spencer. Always willing to give back to the community, this event is indicative of the reputation of Ayre Rayde. An event of this magnitude and dedication as well as the anticipation by fans for this reunion to finally occur will certainly generate a substantial amount of money, but the band has chosen to utilize this reunion to assist the youth via F.A.M.E.

Ayre Rayde March 17th reunion to benefit youth in memory of Daryl M. Spencer

Examiner: January 28, 2012
As Saturday, March 17, 2012 rapidly approaches, both band members and fans of the group, Ayre Rayde, are counting the days until the most anticipated reunion of the year will take place. Donald “Doc” Spencer, co-founder of the group along with his brother Daryl Spencer, promises that this will be like no other reunion that the DMV has seen. This reunion, which will be taking place at Camelot by Martin’s in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, has a purpose.

Spencer explains, “Our reunion was actually supposed to have taken place last year before the passing of my brother, Daryl M. Spencer, who was the manager of Ayre Rayde. He passed away on July 2, 2011 and the original members of Ayre Rayde decided to do the reunion in the memory of our manager, brother and friend on October 22, 2011. One of the former members of the group, Derrick “China Boogie” Davis suggested to the members of the group that it would also be an honor to the memory of Daryl, to utilize the reunion as a Benefit to assist kids that need musical instruments in the school as a way of furthering their education and opportunities upon graduation.”

The band members agreed to Davis’ suggestion and the group put the reunion on hold once more. In the interim, Davis had been elected to replace Leslie Johnson as Councilman of Prince Georges County, Maryland’s District 6. Davis introduced Spencer to Toni Lewis, the founder of the Foundation for the Advancement of Music and Education, Inc. (FAME), a 501 ( c) (3), a non-profit organization whose mission, according to their website, www.fameorg.org, is to provide access to all genres of art to students in urban neighborhoods, who are often disproportionately affected by their social and economic backgrounds. FAME has also been dedicated to providing monetary scholarships to students to further their education in the arts whether it is for vocal or visual arts, dance, or theatre. Read More
