SHAOLIN JAZZ – COLOR of SOUND – Photo Recap

COLOR of SOUND couldn’t have gone better.  The scene: dope weather, top tier gallery, solid art lineup, wall-to-wall beautiful people, amazing video mixing by Tewodross, no shortage of well-mixed drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and of course sounds by 2-Tone and the recipe is complete.

2-Tone and I would like to thank Maori and her team (Karmalux) for the interest and opportunity to kick-off The BlackStar Film Festival – if you’re doing anything in Philly give them a shout;  Tarana and Tim (Art Sanctuary) for hosting and the installation, Alexis (Madison Davenport), Cherisse (Fusicology), Rahsaan (Afrotaino Productions) and Stephanie (The Liberator Magazine) – promotional support, Chris Carr (Eat the Cake NYC) for shooting, Rob (vitaminwater) and Yaya (Red Bull) for beverages, and Chairman’s Reserve Rum.

SHAOLIN JAZZ – PHILA Listening Party – Photo Recap

Philly has always been a good look for DJ 2-Tone Jones and I and this time was no different.  From our discussion about SHAOLIN JAZZ at Temple University to the listening party later that evening at Vivant Art Collection – the SHAOLIN JAZZ activities that went down last weekend were on point!

Lots of  people to thank but its very necessary, as 2-Tone and I weren’t expecting to receive half as much love as we thought we would and that’s only due to a list of individuals that worked to help us do so.

Thanks to Jeana (Temple Univ) for inviting us to speak, Madia – for the introduction to Florcy, Florcy (Vivant Art Collection) for hosting the listening party, Alexis (Madison Davenport PR), Supa Tang for the constant spins on your radio show, Aniekan (Live Art), Tewodross  – live video mixing (That Soul Cinematic), Chris Carr for shooting (Eat the Cake NYC ), Phil (Accommodations), Ed (Chairman’s Reserve Rum), Robert (vitaminwater), YaYa (Red Bull), Rahsaan (AfroTaino), LaNeshe (Painted Bride Project), Edwin, Meaghan (Uristocrat), Tayyib, Meegan (two.one.five mag), Lindsay, Asia (our lovely bartenders) and everyone that attended.
