Bounce the premiere night club for fantastic events located in Old town in Wichita hosted 90’s R&B group SILK last month. The club was a full house of party goers dressed to impress. When the group hit the stage the crowd didn’t stop rocking from beginning to the end. The members took us back with their hit songs “Let’s Make Love and “Meeting In My Bedroom,” just to name a few. They stepped it out with a high energy packed dance routine, and I promise it was like they were the Temptations, which kept the crowd begging for more.
Kandy B and I got to do a special meet and greet with the fellas after the concert, which was a real special treat! During our interview with SILK Kandy B asked if Wichita had showed them love and if they would come back. They gladly responded yes! I asked what was their favorite song they enjoy hearing or performing like they had just recorded it yesterday? Their answer was unanimous “Lose Control,” which they had us all feeling like we were going to do. Not sure which song that is, it’s the one…“Let me lick you up and down.” OHHHHH!
This group that formed in ATL in 1989 surely is a staple to the R&B culture and we look forward to seeing what they have in store in 2017.
Spoken Rhythm & Soul
First Round Entertainment hosted Spoken Rhythm Soul Nite, a black and white affair on March 5 March 5. The event included an array of spoken word artist, comedians and live musicians. The Party Time Ladies were excited to receive a special invite from Desmond Bryant the CEO of First Round Entertainment and were so happy to be in the building. The atmosphere was set for a great night of raw talent. We were excited to see artist who traveled from out of state to be a part of this show. Host comedian Uncle Bam kept the crowd going between sets and live coverage was provided by Bray films and Shanna Hutchens which helped stream and give access to the world to be able to take a part of this great event.
Some of the great artist that blessed the stage were Kevin Phillips who sang, Willie Wactor played the saxophone and had the whole crowd on their feet, Black Soul gave us soul, Ke’Juan Moses did his thang making us laugh, Huggybear the Poet and A Word both gave us life! Desmond blessed us with some strong wise words himself. We want to thank him and his team for giving talented people a platform to share their gifts. Desmond says this will be a monthly event. We cant wait to catch the next show!
The Power Ball was a grown and sexy event. All the ladies and gents came dressed to the T for this event hosted at Abode venue in Wichita. There were even couples in matching attire which was “cute.” The event planners Josh Manning and Will Polite knew what they were doing! It was really great evening full of great vibes and energy. The music kept everyone on their feet especially when they played songs like “Step In The Name Of Love.” I feel like if you were looking for love then this was the event to be at. The crowd ranged in ages, but everyone kept it classy and The Party Time ladies enjoyed every moment. We hope to be at the next Power Ball.
Little Boosie, a hit in the Rap business since the 90’s hit the Wichita stage at 54 West Music Hall March 4th and had the people of Wichita going crazy. The whole crowd was saluting him while they sang his songs. Boosie knows about the struggle and shows it in his music. The energy in the building was electrifying from the packed VIP to the nosebleed section in the back. We were happy to see Boosie in concert and were surprised to know that he has been to Wichita two other times. We thank 45th Street Management Group for having Party Time in building.
