#FLASHLIGHT every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month @ Skinny’s in The Art District of NOHO 4923 Lankershim Blvd.
In Aug. 2010. I personally partnered up with Janet Jackson’s orchestrator Jae Deal and Universal Music Group’s Gaelen Whittemore and executed a live music event called #FLASHLIGHT. Jae Deal and I are the creators and Producers of this very cool Music event…Gaelen Whittemore is the Co-Executive Producer.
Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the Month, you can find #FLASHLIGHT at Skinny’s in The Art District of NOHO…4923 Lankershim Blvd. #FLASHLIGHT is a creative music concept where the DJ, Band, Host and Vocal Host interact…creating a very cool mixtape vibe on stage. Every event we feature a Vocal Host. It’s a musical journey we take from the past to present, incorporating break beats, while the Band and Vocal Host vibe and groove performing classics and popular songs. I’m the Host/MC of the evening.
We also have a moment of truth segment where we give an audience member that has not graced the stage an opportunity to show us what they’ve got! The audience LOVES this! We also have a freestyle segment where Singers/MC’s are asked to go off the dome while the band is jamming. We are encouraging Artist on The #FLASHLIGHT stage to get free.Singing is NOT about perfection…it’s about feeling. Executing the right emotion. Some of the greatest songs where written from a jam session.
From 9-10:30pm we have a #FLASHLIGHT Happy hour and Industry Mixer. From 10:30pm-11:30pm is the Music Segment of #FLASHLIGHT and from 11:30-2am, we party with the DJ at #FLASHLIGHT Radio.
This is a very fun night! Every #FLASHLIGHT has been packed! Our Vocal Host for the first event was the lovely Leah Labelle. Some of you may recognize her from American Idol. We’re blessed to have a stage of very seasoned Musicians! Percussion: Jeff Byrd. Drums: Stanley Randolph/Producer:Ishmael “WOWJones” Moaney. Bass: Ethan Farmer. Guitar: Joel Whitley/Jus Jeff. Keys: Ms. Paris Strother. Jae Deal is our Musical Director.
#FLASHLIGHT is by far The hippest Live Music night in NOHO! Take a look at our opening night!
