choice awards IV

                                         ...the great save


CHOICE Awards v 4 - the event that almost wasn't - found a last moment rescue from Barbara Tucker and Joe B [KING STREET RECORDS] (infinite THANK YOUs to you both!!), and an even more last moment venue replacement at Discotheque, when our first CHOICE room fell out. Thanks to all who helped get the word out and pack our room for the fourth year in a row. But the irrepressible CHOICE Awards, rose to the occasion and tore the roof off the club with a spirited celebration that was full of surprises.

Our special helpers included Maggie handing out the awards, a room full of photographers and unsuspecting presenters among our industry thick crowd. Birthday boy DJ Andre Collins served a vibrant opening set that had them dancing all over the place while the Tiger Beer open bar, got them drinking everywhere else. Veteran talent Strafe opened the show performing his classic smash “Set It Off” and we welcomed a host of you to the stage for the presentations.

We counted Singapore’s DJ Elian Habayeb, Baltimore’s Jada, New Jersey’s Diamond Temple and globetrotting DJs Danny Krivit, Quentin Harris, Jellybean Benitez, Mel Cheren and Blaze (fresh off the plane in fact) among our diverse group of performers, presenters and attending winners to appear over the night before CHOICE Award winning Artist of the Year Stephanie Cooke closed us out on the highest of highs.

Just press play to hear the flavor for yourself!
