Pittsburgh's Indie Dance Party for Kids

DJ KellyMom

DJ KellyMom

Kelly Day is a community leader from Brighton Heights who has spent the past 20+ years building up a massive collection of vinyl. 4 years ago, she started building a new collection: children of her own (two boys, Thurston and Winslow and her girl, Marigold). KID CITY was an idea that Kelly had when she was pregnant with her first child. Her dream is to share her love of music with other families in a place where both the parents and kids can let loose and have a great time. Through the joy of uplifting music and unstructured dance, Kelly has found that her dance parties encourage community amongst the parents and offer a different type of socializing for the kids. At her very first dance party, she saw this dream begin to become a reality, and each subsequent party has allowed that reality to grow and flourish.

Kelly’s DJing experience varies from 4 years at WPTS in the early 90’s, a monthly DJ residency called “Sussidio” at a popular neighborhood bar in Hollywood, CA, and appearances at various private parties and clubs throughout Los Angeles. Kelly is also an alum of the DJ Scratch Academy founded by Jam Master Jay of RUN-DMC. 

In her spare time, Kelly also enjoys traveling abroad, collecting vintage kids toys and clothing, and restoring historic homes. Professionally, Kelly has excelled for the past 15 years working as a graphic designer.
