Weekend in Review

I would like to start off by saying I’m proud of my city!!!!

 

Even after all of the confusion and mayhem Friday afternoon  First Friday still was a HUGE Success and the patrons were still pleased.

 

I would like to give a special Thank You to the crown capital Group family for coming together in extreme adversity  and making first Friday at Taste Food Studio happen without as of nothing ever went wrong. But most importantly I’d like to thank the members of “The Katz Downstairs” who had no obligation to fill to move furniture, sound, speakers, chairs…. But they dove right in without question.

 

This type of cooperation proves that there are people out here that care deeply about the entertainment experience in Jacksonville, Fl.  They helped the team and I get the building  ready for the massive amount of people we all were expecting, then got on stage and ripped the paint off the walls. 

 

Then DJ Byrd, CEO, and myself followed up with a musical journey that at times made the building appear to be moving a bit!

 

 

Then Sunday evening  with v101.5 I hosted “Soulful Sunday” at Taste Food Studio. We had some wonderful  performances by Dez and the future, comedians Nod Ross and Twan Murphy.  Spoke word Superstars Moses West and ANT Heard. With love vocal performances by RnB Sanga and MJBakermusic

 

Please stay tuned for upcoming events and up to date with all the events in hosting.

 

Other hosting opportunities are making themselves available and I am embracing all of the love  and support I’m getting

 

THANK YOU

“This ain’t ATLANTA!”

I was recently at a house party enjoying good vibes with some great people. Room filled with beautiful people enjoying good food, plenty Ciroc, and every drinking game known to mankind .

During that time there was a sidebar and the topic was the nightlife in Jacksonville. A young lady took a sip of her adult beverage and said “I don’t go out here!! I mean.. THIS AIN’T ATLANTA!!” Several comments were made and I chimed in and asked… “What’s the difference?” She paused for a moment glanced back into her cup and replied. “It’s just different there” but could not give a concrete answer on what was different.

I then began to point out the fact that
1. We have a lot of the same amenities that Atlanta has
2. We have a one up on Atlanta because of our beaches
3. Jacksonville’s nightlife is determined by those that participate or choose not to participate
4. We control the culture of our nightlife. If its not right change it.

Don’t get me wrong!!! I frequent places like Atlanta, Miami, and Charlotte and enjoy the different scenery and nightlife.

But I also help stimulate the economy in my own hometown. In the bars, clubs, and restaurants that fuel Jacksonville. If we continue to ignore our own city soon we won’t have anything to do at all, this might lead to absolutely no night life, no concerts, and the potential of big events like the Super Bowl never returning to the Greater Jacksonville area.
