GRANDE HTX (The Do Over)
I remember one of my first parties in a professional setting (which means not a house party). It was at Yao Ming’s Restaurant on Westheimer, and it was shut down by the fire marshal due to capacity issues. I actually thought my life was over and they would never invite me back to do another event ever again, but I was wrong. They assured me that we could work on the issues at hand and definitely try it again. That was in 2004. Fast forward to 2018, and its been 3 months since we’ve held Grande, plus we have a new spot and a new start. Well the same thing happened. Capacity and flow issues forced an early shut down and some disappointment, but that should always lead to lessons learned.
And learned we have, and we are back this month with more bartenders, more bars, more open space and a new mindset to give our guest the best GRANDE experience that we can give.
Join us at Lucille’s, Saturday February 17th. And peep some pictures from the last event before the shutdown.
As always free entry, and $5 parking just across the street.
Waxaholics x Large Professor @ Alley Kat
A great ending to a bitter beginning and unpredictable circumstances, but that is the way of life. Just before the show, Large P’s vehicle was burglarized and all of his vinyl, laptop, and hard drives were taken. This type of incident could have cause the Harlem native to cancel the show in its entirety, but he was having none of it. Large Professor maintained a positive attitude and tore the house down in Houston!
One of the more electric MC’s that I have witnessed this year, and I had the pleasure of being the deejay (unfortunate, but exciting) for his performance.
Opening performances from my homies NtheClouds, Rob Jay, and Mauraderz.
Video and pictures coming soon, its been a great year.
All Wax Everything.
