DC Fab! announced the winners of The Fab Awards 2015 last Saturday inside 21 M Lounge (2033 M Street NW). While guests enjoyed a three-course brunch, unlimited mimosas and party favors, the winners were revealed in an intimate setting.
And the winners are…
The Best Venue award went to Howard Theatre for the third consecutive year. Because of this, the U Street corridor jewel was inducted into The Fab Awards Hall of Fame, joining DJ Quicksilva.
Founder of Howard Theatre, Chip Ellis, accepted the award and spoke about the importance of Howard Theatre. Chip told the crowd that D.C. has to remind people that Howard Theatre is just as important as the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, especially because it opened 25 years earlier. Also, many acts that claimed they were discovered at the Apollo, played the Howard first.
The Promotional Team of the Year award went to Unique Society D.C. Founders, Nate and AJ accepted the award on the team’s behalf. AJ said that although Unique Society hasn’t been throwing parties that long in D.C., they are proud that they have successfully resurrected the day party in the District.
Two-time Fab Award winner, Sunni and the City won the Philanthropist of the Year award this year. The radio personality said that since winning Socialite of the Year award in 2013, she’s been gunning for this award because it means more to her.
It took only 30 votes for DJ Heat to win DJ of the Year for the second year in a row. Last year, Heat became the first female deejay to win the coveted award. The radio personality told the intimate gathering that she’s been deejaying since the age of 13, and is excited to represent female deejays in such a male dominated field.
Two-time Fab Award nominee, Angie Ange, won Best TV/Radio/Internet Personality by a landslide. And although the radio personality said she doesn’t worry about winning awards, she was appreciative of the honor.
Runners up were also invited to the brunch. Darryl Perkins, of BroccoliFest, attended the brunch on behalf of the feel good festival. Their event was the runner up in the Best Event category. The BET Honors After Party got the top spot.
DJ Schemes, looking sharp as a tac, was the runner up in the Best DJ category.
