The 37th Chamber – Listening Parties for SHAOLIN JAZZ (DC)


Its OFFICIAL!  After about 3+ months SHAOLIN JAZZ – The 37th Chamber is done.  This project has grown from just a “mixtape” to becoming, in my opinion, a full blown album and 2-Tone and I are developing a series of listening parties for DC, NYC, and LA.

Check out the flyer above for info regarding the first listening party which will take place in DC, Sat. March 26, at Palace 5ive – good lookin’ out Greg!

LIQUID SOUL – Recap Pics

LIQUID SOUL was one of the best times AM Radio has had in a while.  To be honest, the majority of our Live Art Murals are client based projects that seldom happen in DC and even when they do they aren’t events AM Radio is doing, so, for us, to execute LIQUID SOUL in DC for…well, us and to receive the kind of response we received was pretty gratifying.

Practically everything fell into place with attendees even arriving before 7pm.  From the Vitamin Water enhanced paints used by the artists, DJ 2-Tone Jones spinning rare grooves, a “flavors of DC” video shown featuring colorful portraits of DC area residents (AM Radio friends and family), and people taking full advantage of the Community Wall, LIQUID SOUL really took on a life of its own.

Big shout to everyone who came out, huge thanks to Vitamin Water for sharing our vision, Frank 151 and CityLife for the media support, the promo/pr hit squad (Kat, Akil, Tyrone, Cherisse, Alexis), Teri (Rosina Photography) for killing the photo shoots, Dax for the video, Alex, David, and Jeramie (The Fridge DC), and the AM Radio team (Gerald, BUCK!, Adra, PJ, Aniekan, 2-Tone, Wes, and Lance).

Thanks to everyone that came through to Photo Shoot #2.   Its really impressive to see the support and interest everyone has shown in LIQUID SOUL which has been evident in the event’s build-up.

Can’t wait for everyone to see the portraits Teri took as well as the video shot by Dax.  Until then, check out the pics from my ’01 point-and-shoot: Read the rest of this entry

LIQUID SOUL – Photo Shoot pt. 1

Saturday was good vibes.  Checked out Kat’s (Lil So So) Sol Power event in Adams Morgan and then headed to Mosi Design for the AM Radio photo shoot for our LIQUID SOUL event.

I gotta say, watching the b-boy battle between Kokayi’s son and Rhome along with meeting my new niece (what’s up Syd!) had to be the highlights of my day.

Thanks to Rosina Teri Memolo for shooting, thanks to everyone that came out, and be on the lookout for pics from photo shoot #2.

LIQUID SOUL – A Liquid Arts Experience

Really looking forward to this event – its one you don’t want to miss.  The illest thing about it is that this was conceived during a conversation Aniekan and I had 2-3 months ago:

*Live painting: each live painting will be inspired by and painted using a flavor of Vitamin Water of the artist’s choosing
