The Core DJs, founded by National Programmer & Mixshow DJ, T.Neal (Tony Neal) is a premier coalition and acts as a union for DJs. Its membership boasts over 500 of the World's most influential DJs & International DJ Talent. The primary purpose of the coalition is to empower and educate the core of the music industry---the DJ. Today, there are several other DJ coalitions and some of them were inspired by The Core DJ coalition. The Core DJs are represented in almost every DJ coalition, but still hold the title as the largest DJ coalition in the world! The brand has since expanded to include the highly anticipated semi-annual Core Retreat, The Core Models, The Core Hotlist, The Top 40/Rhythmic DJ's, The Core MC's, a nationally syndicated weekly show, and national events throughout the year.
