Come out and celebrate my Birthday Bash on Saturday December 10, 2011 at Whiskey Jacks Saloon in Madison, WI! I will be performing my 2 singles “Kissin In The DarK” and “Watchin Me” with Brian Urso as well as having 3 DJ’s on stage…my good friends DJ Whitehorse, DJ Double A & DJ Snake! There will also be a band in the house…my friends ‘Mission 19’ performing all your favorite bar songs/sing alongs in between the DJ’s! This will be ONE EPIC NIGHT! Make sure you come out! I know it’s about 2 hours away from my hometown in IL, but the past couple of years I have been receiving an unprecedented amount of love and support from my WI peeps!!! So I hope to see everyone out!
For those who don’t know…my hommie DJ Baddmixx is not only a personal friend of mine who helped me out when I was going through some tough times, he ALSO played an instrumental AND influential role in my career. ANYONE in the northern IL area this weekend, please come out and support his Birthday. I won’t be able to make it, but if you could come through and show him some love we here at RiP Records would all appreciate it greatly. The event is held Fri Oct. 7, 2011 at St. Joseph Hall in Waukegan, IL.
