Saturday April 27th, F.A.T. Entertainment hosted the MC’s For MS Charity Live Event and successfully raised close to $1,500 towards our donation goal for the MS Walk on Sunday, May 5th. With month’s of work being put in for this event it was finally go time. Here is how it went.
After rolling into Pitcher’s Bar & Lounge around noon, Team FAT began the set up process for the event to come. Must give a big shout out to all the employees at Pitcher’s for handling everything on their end to perfection and providing great service. The first crew to role in was T.M.G. after DJ NoGood & DJ KFre$h averted disaster, all while keeping it a secret because they knew I would have had an anuerysm, then P.U.R.P. Nation came through with a huge squad and was immeadietly ready to hit the stage. After all the artists music were loaded up it was finally showtime. P.U.R.P. Nation kicked off the days performance with an energetic set with songs like “Cruisin” and “Gettin’ To The Money” . Next to the stage was Easton, PA EMCEE, A. Styles. His set was also full of energy and he and his crew killed the performance playing songs like his single “Black Hole“.
After a brief intermission F.A.T. Entertainment’s own One Man Bandit went on and put on a really impressive show, even getting some crowd participation when went into “You Down With F.A.T.?” also performing two of his newest songs “They Know” and “Find A Way“.
To close out the days first half of performers was Queens, NY rapper, Young Chizz representing his imprint the T.O.N.Y. Media Group playing his hits “Van Wilder” and “Swagga On A Million” plus his upcoming single “#MOBBIN” also bringing his son up on stage that made for an incredibly emotional moment. After the first 4 artists killed it on stage it was time to raffle off items donated by our many sponsors. With families in the building as well as plenty of children this part was one everybody got to enjoy. The kids even got in on the act giving me a drum roll everytime I was ready to announce a winner. By the midway point of the event we had almost hit $1,000 and rolling.
Around 7 PM it was time for the one and only Justina to open up the second half of the days performances and she did not disappoint. With her guitarist Randy Harris she put on one of the best shows of the day playing “Halloween“, “Wild Bitch” and more. She was down in the crowd getting people dancing and really getting the energy in the room right. Following Justina’s performance it was time for Lehigh Valley favorites The H.U.R.T. to take the stage.
Begininng their performance in the crowd set the tone for a high energy set with everybody on stage going in. Going back and forth with their hype man after they’d mistakenly jump into doing Jay-Z covers, all as part of the performance, showing they are they to perform but are still doing it to have fun.
As we neared towards the end of the night we reached closer to our donation goal and everybody was entertained throughout the entire day. It was time to end the show on a high note with performances from EZ and DeXperience. And god damn did they put on two incredible performances.
EZ took the stage and played crowd favorite “Cloud 9” and “Go Crazy” even getting the kids involved, all while being the constant professional he is and showing everybody involved love on stage. 610’s Poster Boy is poised for big things.
It was then time for the days headliners, DeXperience, to hit the stage and they made believers out of everybody in the building. Putting on a well choreographed and put together show and even had an impropmtu invite for all of the kids to go on stage and dance with the group.
Playing songs like “Tempted”, “Party & Bull$#!*” and their newest track “Bring It Back” they showed everybody why they are the next big thing around here.
And that was it, months of work culminating in one day and one event that was run smoother than you could imagine. At the end of the show the crew from The F’n Awesome Radio Show hit the stage to address the crowd, then bringing up members of F.A.T. Entertainment and Unisphere Clothing for an impromptu phot session. After all was said and done there was close to $1,500 in the donation buket and quite a few exhausted individuals. But god damn if it wasn’t worth it.
