What a great night last night in New York City. On several levels the Blubrry Jam live event was a success.
1. No hitches. Thanks to the team at RawVoice including Jeff, Jeevan and Matt working hard. Family members pitched in too. Ben “Bendrix” Williams donated his video skills covering the entire event. The folks at the Canal Room were total pros as well.
2. Good turn out. In spite of cold weather, the Easter holiday and conflicting events. Podcasters (like Soccergirl & Ryan, Lynette and Chris Penn), podsafe musicians (like Slau, Lee Coulter and ShynDigg) and podcast moguls (from Podcast Pickle and Podcast Ready) mingled and enjoyed the show.
3. Top notch entertainment. HER & Kings County delivered some powerful urban country music. Keith & The Girl served up some edgy laughs between sets. Then Brother Love did his thing rocking the stage for an hour with new songs from Turn It Up and the the excellent stuff from Album Of The Year.
And to top it off we raffled an Apple TV at the end of the night. The night crawlers moved on to Tribeca Tavern just a few doors down to continue the party. From the looks of it everyone was having a real good time.
Thank you to everyone who helped out, showed up or gave some kind of support to this event.
Its important to note that the Blubrry Jam online campaign is still going until May 15th. So you can still help out by donating online at the Blubrry Jam page, buying the (DRM-free) music of Brother Love and HER & Kings County over on Amie Street or by promoting the campaign in general.
And don’t worry. Plenty of pics and videos to follow for those who couldn’t make it to the event in person.
