Hope you guys can make it to our next hip-hop happy hour – HAPPY HOUR CUBED, where we’ll be celebrating the work of music and film icon Ice Cube. Oh yeah, its also Reggie’s Birthday Wed is going to be hectic! To RSVP click here.
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.

The second installment of our happy hour series picked up where the first one left off and added to the momentum. Peace to everyone that came, Mo, Reg, Gene, and Jeremy (1920 DC) for again hosting, and be on the lookout for more, as 2-Tone and I will be doing these every two months.

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….

Whut?! Thee Happy Hour (a tribute to Redman)
COLOR of SOUND, the newest creative extension of the SHAOLIN JAZZ music project, which will debut at the first annual BlackStar Film Festival, will highlight the visuals (art, music videos, and event photography) that have been created and taken for SHAOLIN JAZZ.

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.
