It was a lot of work from start to finish (we drove up to NYC immediately following CAN I KICK IT? Tues. night), but I must say that our first BizBash trade show (on Wed.) yielded success for us in a variety of ways. If you’re unfamiliar with BizBash they’re one of America’s top sources for news, ideas and resources for event and meeting professionals, via their websites, web tools, and exhibitions.
BizBash NYC, which took place at the Jacob Javitz Center, gave us an opportunity to meet and network with a range of event specialists from brands and institutions such as Westin Hotels, NYU, and Viacom, where we, for six hours straight, got a chance to speak to them about our SHAOLIN JAZZ multimedia engagements.
We, for the most part, have conducted the majority of our engagements at colleges and universities and us exhibiting at BizBash is our first big push at developing business in the corporate space.
Despite only getting three hours of sleep and dealing with the grind of NYC morning and evening commuter traffic the show was more than worth it (we’ll be back) and to check out the recap click Read the rest of this entry
Dope night all around. Good people (Fab 5 Freddy and MC Yan are the coolest), fly art, and an ill film. To check out the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
If you enjoyed the opening reception for our CHAMBERS: Wu-Tang Art Exhibition, that we flipped with ART WHINO, then you’ll definitely want to check our closing reception (11.4), which will be something special for music lovers and true fans of Hip Hop.
The event, on Friday November 4th, will kick off with an Instant Vintage pop-up record fair and auction featuring some of the area’s finest vendors of Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, Jazz and Rock music on wax. Throughout that portion of the evening DJs from the DC Vinyl Headz collective will be spinning music from the each vendor that will be available for sale.
The second portion of the evening will be a Wu Tang Clan-themed producer showcase featuring some of the finest beatsmiths in the DC area. The evening’s festivities will be hosted by DJ 2-Tone Jones.

SHAOLIN JAZZ A / V is hands down our most experimental engagement to date. Props to everyone that attended our first installment, salute to the Anacostia Arts Center for bringing us out, and shouts to all of those who helped spread the word. And with all of the positive feedback that we received, 2-Tone and I are certainly looking forward to conducting more of these. To view more recap pics click Read the rest of this entry
Hip-Hop, martial arts, chess. An odd trio? Not at all, according to RZA, a founder of the rap group Wu-Tang Clan.
“Hip-Hop is a battle game,” he said. “Chess is a battle. Martial arts is a battle.” For the full read click here.
