Run-DMC announces reunion for Austin music festival

July

AP photoJoseph Simmons, now known as Rev. Run, and Darryl "DMC" McDaniels are getting the band back together. Run-DMC will reunit this fall at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, the Associated Press reports.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame act originally called it quits after their DJ, Jam Master Jay, was killed in 2002. But it was announced Tuesday that the band will be among the performers for the Nov. 2-4 event. Festival organizers say they plan to donate some of the proceeds to the JMJ Foundation for Music, which works to give youth access to the arts.
