The Happy Hour is Dead – Recap Pics

Simply put, The Happy Hour is Dead – De La Soul Tribute was on point.  Lots of friends and fam (more than we expected) came through to celebrate De La’s catalog, making Thursday look like a Saturday.

Shouts to all those that attended, thanks to Mo, Reggie, Gene, and Jeremy (1920 DC) for once again holding us down, Madison Davenport for the PR/marketing support, and all those that helped spread the word (Facebook, twitter, etc).

Our next happy hour will be in April and trust me when I tell you that we won’t disappoint.

Whut?! Thee Happy Hour (Redman tribute) Skeasers….

“Skeaser 1”

2-Tone and I had the idea of producing customized skits to help promote the happy hour based on the skits featured on some of Redman’s albums.  Check out the first one above (created in the Low-Tone Lounge featuring DC area friends and fam) and be on the lookout for more.

And just in case you’re wondering, “Skeaser” is a combination of skit + teaser….

SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE – Photo Recap

With this being the first ever live performance of SHAOLIN JAZZ I don’t think things could’ve worked out any better.  Good weather, a legendary venue (Blues Alley), a very respectable turnout for both shows, amazing music from 2-Tone with Sound of the City, and our guest performers.  And I must add, doing a live show was NEVER in our plan.
