Greetings from OBX

OBX 2015

Hello New York City,

Based on my social media feed, it seems like a lot of you are out of town and or on vacation, enjoying the Summer.  As much as we all love New York, everyone needs a little escape from the madness of NYC, and we here at SHAW Promotion are no stranger to the travel.  We are  gearing up for our 5th annual SHAW Fest camping/rafting trip down the Delaware River on Labor Day Weekend. I would like to give a big shout out to PBR NYC (@pbrnyc) for their continued support and sponsorship for all 5 years! In addition to the refreshing PBR’s for the weekend, check out all the fun swag we scored including a PBR raft and paddles; I even got a pair of PBR Vans!  SHAW Fest is our personal holiday, however if you are interested in attending, feel free to shoot us an email about why you want to attend and we might have space.

On Set with Mark Ronson’s New Music Video “I Can’t Lose”

Few months back I had the pleasure to be a part of the Mark Ronson‘s new music video, “I can’t Lose“, featuring Keyone Starr.  The video shoot took place at Le Baron, a small, swanky bar in Chinatown that was transformed into a ultra stylish setting resembling the golden ages of China’s Shanghai era of the 1920’s, known as the “The Paris of the East, the New York of the West”. Upon arrival, Mark Ronson made a point to greet every single cast, crew, and talents with a sincere appreciation for everyone’s help on his new video. There was no shortage of the industry standard “hurry up and wait” for the entire shoot, but the endless authentic old world visuals all around the set plus friendly cast was plenty fun to pass the time while we wait for our turn for the video shoot. Mark Ronson was nothing short of a genuine nice guy with great musical talent to boot. We weren’t allowed to post anything until the video made it’s world premier and guess what, it’s OUT!!

PS. Thanks to Christine Lo for the casting and Chad Ghiron 0f for the opportunity.

Check out the video below and some fun photos I took on set.

One of our favorite producers of great events is Dances of Vice, who is back with another amazing July 4th party: Endless Summer Nights presenting the theme of the forever sub-culture rivalry, “Mods vs Rockers“. “It’s Vespas vs Tritons, mop tops vs pompadours, miniskirts vs pencil skirts and sharkskin vs leather in this celebratory face off between Mods and Rockers at the Gansevoort Park Rooftop. Soak in three sun-kissed levels of open air terraces, classic cocktails, beach cabanas, cotton candy and BBQ while live bands, gorgeous go-gos and delinquent DJs hit the deck to the sounds of live surf rock, beach pop, rockabilly, bossa nova, swing and jazz.” This ultra fun and stylish party is F-R-E-E! Just RSVP!

Another really amazing July 4th party we had the pleasure working with is the annual Liberty Belle Extravaganza – A Vintage Fourth of July Rooftop Spectacular. Featuring over two floors of the HUDSON TERRACE (including rooftop and terrace) with 40 performers (incl. 5 bands), with breathtaking views of the Hudson River, Jersey, and The Intrepid!!
