It was a lot of work from start to finish (we drove up to NYC immediately following CAN I KICK IT? Tues. night), but I must say that our first BizBash trade show (on Wed.) yielded success for us in a variety of ways. If you’re unfamiliar with BizBash they’re one of America’s top sources for news, ideas and resources for event and meeting professionals, via their websites, web tools, and exhibitions.
BizBash NYC, which took place at the Jacob Javitz Center, gave us an opportunity to meet and network with a range of event specialists from brands and institutions such as Westin Hotels, NYU, and Viacom, where we, for six hours straight, got a chance to speak to them about our SHAOLIN JAZZ multimedia engagements.
We, for the most part, have conducted the majority of our engagements at colleges and universities and us exhibiting at BizBash is our first big push at developing business in the corporate space.
Despite only getting three hours of sleep and dealing with the grind of NYC morning and evening commuter traffic the show was more than worth it (we’ll be back) and to check out the recap click Read the rest of this entry
Props to the homie Kat for adding to her legacy of dropping the illest Fela Kuti celebrations to date, Black President’s Day. If you’ve never been to a Lil SoSo event (Kat’s experience and event design agency) then you’re missing out on some of the most engaging and original events and creative salons, globally, and if you’ve never been to her Black President’s Day events then re-read what I just wrote.
The crowds and energy are amazing, and add to that world renown DJs, live musicians, the highly anticipated Queens Stroll, and video montages of Fela’s performances and speeches, and you’ve got yourself a memorable time. It sounds simple, right, but you’ve also got to have the mix of everything on top of experience or it simply won’t work.
For this month’s CAN I KICK IT? we’re bringing you guys a true contemporary cult classic: “ONG-BAK” starring Tony Jaa. “ONG-BAK” is actually pretty unique series in that the two additional films that follow take a completely different turn in story than the original. Be sure to check out the OG on Tuesday April 26th at SongByrd and for additional details click here.
Props to everyone that attended CAN I KICK IT? at Siena College and salute to Costin and his team for bringing us out and ensuring our production was tight on every level. Hopeful we can get back there for next year’s Hip-Hop Week. For more recap photos click Read the rest of this entry
Really looking forward to this event (produced by Risikat Okedeyi – who I’ve had the pleasure of working with on a range of her events), as I’m assisting with the creative marketing. Its called nomads + tribes and is a counter-culture New Year’s Eve event, meaning you’ll be treated to WAY more than your typical New Year’s song-and-dance. Check out the event details clicking here
Haven’t posted my design work in a MIN, but I’m pretty proud of this package I’ve been producing. Above is part of a content design and marketing package I’ve been developing for Lil So So Production’s (LSP) Nomads and Tribes New Year’s 2015 New Year’s event that’s taking place at a venue in Washington, DC called Song Byrd. Please note that LSP designed the n + t logo. For info about the event click here and to review the additional visual bios of the amazing DJs and performers click Read the rest of this entry
