In 2019, the University of Colorado Buffaloes football team walked into the stadium on game days to the same song every time – Where The Party At by Jagged Edge. This tradition started in 2017 because of a very brief conversation with then captain and running back, #23 Phillip Lindsay.
Jammin’ DJ’s hosts the party at Folsom Field for every single home game, and it is always a blast. Setup in the northeast corner of the stadium, just outside of the Champions Center Rooftop Terrace, DJ Dan Metcalfe has hosted the event since 2017.
The music starts a full 3 hours before kickoff, so Jammin’s DJ Dan chooses the soundtrack for the player’s walk-in for every single home game. The Jagged Edge tradition began the second time Dan ever hosted the event. He spent all morning trying to think of the perfect tune to get the players hyped before a big game, and only minutes before the entrance a light bulb went off. Where The Party At.
Undeniably recognizable, the song elicited an immediate response from some of the players. So much so that Phillip Lindsay, now a running back for his hometown Denver Broncos, started tapping other players on their shoulders and telling them to remove their headphones. Lindsay then stepped out of the entrance line and shouted 4 words that DJ Dan will never forget… “This song! Every time!” And a tradition began.
Jammin’ DJ’s is still rocking every single Buffs game at Folsom, so if you’re ever at the game rooting for your Buffs, come say hi. Dan will be happy to tell you the whole story.
