CAN I KICK IT? / feat Kick Boxer / Recap

On Tues. we introduced CAN I KICK IT? to 2018 and what better way to bring in the new year than doing so in-style.  Nu Wears, a new men’s accessories line by notable producer SlimKat76, held down the pop-up shop – upping our “style game” as well as the “style-game” for those fashion-forward people who bought the brand’s hand crafted ties and handkerchiefs.

Thank you to everyone who attended, props to Songbyrd for hosting and shouts to Terry for holding down the bar, salute to Nu Wears for supporting, and much appreciated to everyone who spread the word.  Lastly, salute to DJ Iran for dropping some gems on the turntables.  If you stayed long enough you got blessed with some rare samples.

Next up, on Tues. Feb. 27th we bring you a classic from the Jackie Chan archive – Drunken Master.  See you then and for the full recap click Read the rest of this entry

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

Taking risks are apart of business, but when you build your brand a certain way and you plan and execute your marketing strategy properly those risks pay off and our final CAN I KICK IT? of 2017 exemplifies that risk, as we decided to conduct it the day after Christmas, despite a number of people responding after hearing the news, “You’re going to it when?” and “Are you sure, its the day after Christmas?”

The answers to those questions came in the form of us having our biggest crowd to date at Songbyrd, where standing-room-only quickly came into effect.  And the irony is that Songbyrd actually bought more chairs which was great because they did get used, however, the demand persisted.

AMALGAMATION_flyer

Really looking forward to this event (produced by Risikat Okedeyi – who I’ve had the pleasure of working with on a range of her events), as I’m assisting with the creative marketing.  Its called nomads + tribes and is a counter-culture New Year’s Eve event, meaning you’ll be treated to WAY more than your typical New Year’s song-and-dance.  Check out the event details clicking here
