SHAOLIN JAZZ at Coney

We had a good time shooting this impromptu video two weeks ago at Coney Island.  The wind and traffic on the boardwalk were no joke, but it was worth it.

CAN I KICK IT? / Art All Night / Recap

Despite some untimely tech issues, our experience at Art All Night couldn’t have gone better and we certainly hope that we were able to deliver a memorable experience for everyone who attended.

The good weather helped set the stage, which allowed Terence Nicholson to set the tone with another fiery martial arts demonstration, and it was great getting to vibe with old friends while creating new ones through educating them on the history of SHAOLIN JAZZ and what we do.  The corner of North Cap and Florida will never be the same.

Thanks to Art All Night for having us out, shouts to JaMon for both documenting the event and assisting with the merch table, props to everyone who helped spread the word, including those who posted recaps, and thanks to everyone who attended.
