National AIDS Memorial Grove, Golden Gate Park
DJ Gregg Sueyoshi
Gregg’s love for dance music began in grade school in the mid-80’s when he discovered the expanding 12″ vinyl dance remix section in the corner of his local Tower Records store in Honolulu. Fast forward a few years later, he is fascinated by the mix shows he recorded on the radio where extended dance versions of popular songs were continuously strung together seamlessly. He studied these mixes and self taught himself to create his own mixes on cassette tapes with his first mixer from Radio Shack (Realistic!). Heading to college in the late 80’s, he packed up his turntables for the Bay Area and has never looked back. He is grateful that SF has been such a unique place for exposure to so many different venues, clubs, and music genres. Gregg’s mixes gravitate to the likes of House, Club Vocals, Disco Classics, Nu-Disco, Funk, D.O.R. (Dance Oriented Rock), and Progressive House.
After having a taste for spinning at the Flag Alley event last year, he feels very honored and excited to be playing at the Flagging In The Park June 2023 event. Gregg would like to express his deep sense of gratitude to the organizers of FITP for the invitation.

What to Expect
The National AIDS Memorial Grove is a gorgeously secluded meadow near the East end of Golden Gate Park. Often the fog is licking at the sky above – especially in the summer, bring sunscreen and a wrap. Bring something to sit on; pack a lunch or bring snacks and beverages; flags are available for use; usually a few furry friends roaming. There are little or no services nearby but port-a-potties will be available. Our DJ spins vocal fun-filled dance music, and flow artists eagerly enjoy and share their art with newcomers. There is no pressure to participate — come relax and take in the color and beauty of our tribe!
About Flagging in the Park
In 1997 a group of San Francisco flaggers started a tradition of celebrating life by gathering in the newly dedicated National AIDS Memorial Grove. Twenty-four years later, Flagging in the Park has grown into a treasured, quintessentially San Francisco event where DJs, organizers and participants donate their time, energy and love to help raise money for local and national charities.
