CAN I KICK IT? / feat Enter the Dragon at DCPA / Recap

Our two days in Denver, Co. conducting CAN I KICK IT? has, unquestionably, been our best trip to date.

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) took more than good care of us before, during, and after both events; the city of Denver, especially downtown, which is where we stayed and conducted our performances, is world class; and the people are amazingly down-to-earth and their interest in new things is undeniable, which ultimately resulted in us achieving two sold out shows.

Thank you to the DCPA for bringing us out, props to everyone who spread the word about our events, and much respect to everyone who attended both nights.  The love is much appreciated.

CAN I KICK IT? / feat BLADE / Recap

There’s a great deal of enjoyment when a client wants you to be apart of their programming, but it feels even better when that same client wants to bring you back and this certainly was the case with The Kennedy Center who asked us to be apart of the launch festival for their new state-of-the-art REACH Center – a new multipurpose venue designed to help artists bring their creative pursuits to life.

The entire festival is actually 2 weeks of programming (over 400 events) with our scheduled date featuring all hip-hop based performances and engagements from local DC acts such as Kokayi to national legends – De La Soul, all happening simultaneously which allowed for attendees to fully explore the REACH Center and its various studios, multimedia spaces, and world-class works of art.

And despite all that was happening, which included DJ sets by Bobbito Garcia and workshops by Words, Beats, and Life, we held down a capacity crowd for our screening of the 90’s classic BLADE starring Wesley Snipes.  Add to that a continuous line out of the door and a visit of our screening by hip-hop legend Q-Tip, who The Kennedy Center appointed as its first Artistic Director of Hip Hop Culture.

Thanks to The Kennedy Center for bringing us back and thank you to everyone who attended.
