#TBT - KES the Band in Prospect Park

This past August, I attended a free KES the Band soca concert in Prospect Park and I realized I hadn't followed up about it.  I had a blast.  The weather was perfect, the DJ beforehand got the crowd going, the opening act, KUENTA i TAMBU (KiT) was fantastic and KES, of course, was incredible.  Check out some pictures and video from the event below.

#TBT - Viva la Vida Cover by Anthony Rodriguez

I was browsing through some YouTube videos and came across this footage of me dancing for performing artist and entertainer extraordinaire, Anthony Rodriguez.  He performed a cover of Coldplay's, "Viva La Vida" and also created the choreography.  It was filmed almost 4 years ago; I thought it would be fun to share.  Enjoy!
