SHAOLIN JAZZ – College and Univ Lecture Series Univ Wyoming – Recap

Our programming at University of Wyoming was the most expansive we’ve done to date, becoming one of our most memorable trips.  Our two day stint at the school consisted of a panel discussion and SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE (featuring DJ 2-Tone Jones and Sound of the City) – day one, and a classroom lecture and COLOR of SOUND (which included student artwork) – day two.

Despite a lot of moving parts (production, personnel, etc) each event ran pretty smoothly, received good attendance followed up by fully engaged attendees; making for a great experience.

Thanks to Michael Lange and Kayla Luneman (SAC), Ashley Dallum (234 Gallery), Rodney Garnett, Ulrich Adelt, and Rex Amend (panelists), and Sound of the City (Biscuit, Chooki, Solomon, and Vohn).

Stay tuned for more trips and for more pics of our trip click Read the rest of this entry
