For this to be our first CAN I KICK IT? where we screened a TV series as well as it being the first time that we included an intermission, things couldn’t have gone better. And to add to that, seats were filled on both floors which had Terry non-stop on the bar.
Thanks to everyone who attended, props to Crochet Kingpin who held down the pop-up shop, and thanks to Songbyrd for hosting.

There’s nothing like having solid partners and thanks to the good people at the DowntownDC BID promotion for CAN I KICK IT? is back on the digital billboard in the heart of Chinatown in downtown Washington, DC (think Time Square in NYC), which is an incredibly big deal considering the billboard’s location and number of people who see it (100’s of thousands per day).
See you Tuesday.
June 2017 has been a milestone month for SHAOLIN JAZZ in that our CAN I KICK IT? engagement, which started as a simple idea developed during one of our college trips in MA, has grown into an event that’s rocked hundreds of people in our hometown, at one of the most iconic national monuments in our nation’s capital. Simply put, we made something out of nothing, which is precisely how SHAOLIN JAZZ even started. And we were able to add to the creative cultural fabric of our city and share it with friends and family which is uniquely special.
We more than appreciate the Downtown DC BID for wanting SHAOLIN JAZZ to conduct CAN I KICK IT? to help launch their Downtown Summer Flick series; we’d like to send an enormous bid of thanks to DC Music Download for their top tier PR support; thank you to our community and media partners: Lil SoSo Productions, 202creates, DC Funk Parade, Listen Local First DC, Zipcar, Boss Shepherd’s, Pret-A-Manger, the Mayor’s office on African American Affairs for their marketing and promotional support; props to everyone who’s helped to spread the word and shared their experience(s); and we cannot thank you enough to the individuals who’ve attended one, some, and, in some cases, all four screenings.
Keep in mind that we’ve still got more events and programming coming and this is just the first so stay tuned, and in the meantime for all SHAOLIN JAZZ info click here and to follow us on social media click: instagram, facebook, and twitter.
We, of course, have provided an event recap and to add to the experience we’ve added photos from attendees. To check out the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
