Making such beautiful music by banging pots and pans is pretty unique though.

but even back in that day, DC was the only city that didn't do that rap sh&t everyone else was doing and we didn't let any out of towners try to take over the city.

I just wanted to know for those that live in DC like me see any influences from other areas. I know that a lot of transplants live in the area, so I wanted to know if Washington takes after it's northern neighbors like New York City and Philadelphia, or does it take after it's neighbors to the south like Atlanta, Dallas, etc?
NYC & its other northern neighbors.

OK then DC is influenced by what's happening back home, where ever that is.

D.C. would most likely be influenced by New York - most people realize that is the economic capital of the United States, and that Washington is usually lumped in with New York as more of the internationally significant cities in the U.S.

Do you assume that people who move to DC move from some other big city? It's headquarters for just about all government agencies. People come from assorted field offices all over the country, urban, suburban and rural to work there, many towards the latter half of their careers. When they retire, many leave. I don't see any one city's influence. When I first lived in DC in 1969 - 1972, it was said that people averaged three years there. I do not know what that number is these days. My second stint in the area (1995 - 2007) was 12 years, but I lived in suburban Maryland. I left 6 weeks after I retired. I think I'm fairly typical.
