A big thank you to everyone who came out to this year's Elk Grove Brewfest!
We'll see you next year!
"DJ Nocturnal (Or Ya Big Buddy Noc) is a true cutter and scratcher"
His skills have carried him around the country, competing, touring, studio engineering and doing radio. Nocturnal’s often referred to as a turntablist, located deep down at the roots of hip-hop culture.
He’s a member of Sacramento’s epic Sleeprockers Crew, DJ for Pep Love (Hieroglyphics) and a pivotal component of the highly respected Skratchpad Sacramento chapter. His unique sound knows no boundaries and his album The Benchmark is oh-so aptly titled—a true testament to the strength of the Sacramento underground hip-hop scene.
Every performance gives rise to a turntable trickery. DJ Nocturnal’s style is dexterous and quick and willing to push hip-hop’s boundaries, taking obscure tracks and making them real and raw and relevant.

Old Town Elk Grove is the heart of our community, a unique treasure with many buildings dating back to the 1800s. The City made improvements to beautify and upgrade the area. There are streetscape improvements and beautification measures designed to attract pedestrians and shoppers and enhance pedestrian safety and traffic circulation. The improvements will boost the economic vitality and attractiveness of Old Town Elk Grove while preserving the area’s unique character and history. In the heart of Old Town Elk Grove, is the Old Town Plaza, an outdoor open-air plaza located at the southeast corner of Elk Grove Boulevard and Railroad Street, which will be the hosting site for the first ever Elk Grove Brewfest.
Rhett Seevers was born on February 7, 1997. His proud parents, Beth and Randy Seevers brought home their bundle of joy to join their family of four. At four months, they were devastated by the news that their little boy had severe cerebral palsy and would face a life full of challenges. They dove in headfirst and learned all they could about his disabilities. On March 13, 2004, after 7 years of full-time care, love and devotion, Rhett passed away at home unexpectedly with his family by his side.
In the spring of 2005, as the anniversary of Rhett’s death approached, a friend of Beth’s introduced her to running. She learned of the 1st annual Shamrock’n ½ marathon. It was ironically being held on the first anniversary of Rhett’s passing. Completing the run was such an inspiration to Beth. The following year, she asked that her friends and family join her. Join her they did; 35 additional friends and family donned the first baby blue running shirts that year. In the spring of 2007, with the addition of an organized training group, over 125 people participated in the race.
On December 7, 2007, the “Runnin’ for Rhett Non-Profit Foundation” was founded. The organization has now inspired 1000’s of youth and adults in the Sacramento area.
In Rhett’s short life, he inspired many people with his infectious smile and will to live, but with his challenges, he could not walk, run or jump – no matter how hard he tried. After Rhett’s death, Beth and Randy dedicated their memory of Rhett to utilizing FITNESS and MOVING to help others – do what Rhett wanted to do so badly but couldn’t.
Our goal is to LET RHETT’S STORY INSPIRE those who feel defeated, UPLIFT those who feel down and ENCOURAGE ALL TO take that first step, like Beth did in the spring of 2005, and MOVE INTO LIFE.
