SHAW Promotion & The Little People Party present Brooklyn Bazaar Family Funhouse

lpp-bazaar-11-20-16-back

Hey People,
Back in 2003 I saw an opportunity in the under belly of NYC nightlife so I went to work, partied hard, and SHAW Promotion was born. We have won “Best Promoters” awards twice from Paper Magazine as well as Village Voice and L Magazine, and other publications. I have also had the pleasure to work with many great people, including my wife, JD, who use to throw parties with now infamous Mike Nouveau almost 12 years ago…

Fast forward more than a decade, JD and I are now parents to a 1 1/2 year old toddler named Jarvis. Combining our new passion of hanging with our son, our event production backgrounds, and marketing expertise, the concept for The Little People Party was born out of a genuine need for what we needed now in our lives…

“As new parents living in a not so huge apartment in North Brooklyn, husband and wife team Andy and JD quickly realized that Jarvis needed a larger indoor space for weekly socialization and play, and they needed to avoid going broke to accommodate him! The idea of meeting and mingling with other parents who also need a safe, stimulating, affordable, fully inclusive outlet for their children is the driving force behind each event.”

The Little People Party is already the fastest growing kids events at our normal weekly space. Starting Sunday, November 20, 2016, The Little People Party presents Brooklyn Bazaar Family Funhouse, a weekly event devoted to families at the new Greenpoint Brooklyn Bazaar every Sunday. (150 Greenpoint Avenue). The venue offers ping pong, mini golf, brunch by Brooklyn Star, arcade games, family-themed vendors, and two “The Little People Dance Party” upstairs in the large Concert Hall featuring a weekly 45 minute performance with rotating guest performers as well as ample time to run around the space, a safe environment for kids.

I hope some of you will join us for this new venture or please help us spread the word to other parent friends!

Hello New York City,
We had a newsletter set up yesterday, but after a long and devastating election night I just had to take the day off SHAW Promotion to recoup as we feel a lot of people compute. We have always been a part of NYC that celebrates diversity, forward thinking and tolerance and like many of you, we are shock at what is happening to our country right now. One thing that is becoming very clear to me is how grateful I feel to be surrounded by so many intelligent and compassionate friends, neighbors and family in the city I called home. Let’s keep being progressive, open minded, celebrating love and keep doing what we do, stand strong, party hard and treat everyone with respect. Things will be alright, we will carry on.

Let’s move along.

Winner will be chosen at random, but a good story always wins.

Hello New York,
Happy Fall 2016, I can’t believe the summer is over. I have been to quite a few parties, road trips, special events this summer but this past two weekends was all about motorcycles with some of the best bike events in town. I took my girl Thea, the Boston Terrier, on our first Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride and witness 500+ dapper riders taking over Manhattan and Brooklyn for a great ride, hang and to bring awareness for men’s health on this charity ride. I had so much fun and will definitely participate again next year!

This Thursday August 11, This Is Our Music and Le Poisson Rouge bring you HERBIE HANCOCK live at Prospect Park Bandshell with Robert Glasper Experiment. “In addition to being recognized as a legendary pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock has been an integral part of every jazz movement since the 1960s. As a member of the Miles Davis Quintet, he became one of the pioneers of the avant garde sound. His recordings during the ’70s combined electric jazz with funk and rock sounds in an innovative style that continues to influence contemporary music. “Rockit” and “Future Shock” marked Hancock’s foray into electronic dance music and included several chart-topping hits; during the same period he continued to work in an acoustic setting with V.S.O.P., which included ex-Miles Davis bandmates Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams. Hancock has received an Academy Award for his Round Midnight film score and 14 Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year for “River: The Joni Letters” and two 2011 Grammy Awards for his recently released globally collaborative CD, “The Imagine Project.” Many of his compositions, including “Canteloupe Island,” “Maiden Voyage,” “Watermelon Man,” and “Chameleon,” are modern standards that have had a profound effect on all styles of modern”

Herbie video

In addition to all the fun festivals, shows, and parties going on this month, we are personally very excited to attend the Slackers concert cruise on Friday August 26, presented by Rocksoff.  The only thing better than seeing a band you love is to see them on a boat while cruising around the iconic landmarks and skylines of NYC.  You can get tickets HERE and be sure to check out http://www.rocksoff.com/ for all their upcoming shows, we can’t wait!

“If there exists a more entertaining and engaging live band to ever come out of New York City than The Slackers, we have never seen or heard of them. They are an insanely awesome mix of reggae, rock steady, ska, and soul music. If you can’t have fun at a Slackers concert then you suck at life. The last time we saw saw someone frowning at a Slackers concert was never. Rocks Off honcho Jake likes to tell people that in the unlikely event he were to ever get married, the Slackers would be the band he would hire for his wedding. All Aboard and Anchors Away!!!!”
