As a fan of Hip Hop.. not just the music, but the culture.. I was so excited to see 2 west coast legends on the same stage! Plus I loved how this years Summer Jam was in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. I think all we were missing was Dr Dre! (YEAH RIGHT... He's been on the DL for a minute now haha) But man, it was exciting to see Tha Dogg Pound too. So many DPGC classics on my MP3 player including a catalog of 12 inches in my basement! (But some of ya'll don't know what I'm talking about LOL) Then to see WC kill it with Ice Cube... Most would pay $50++ for a ticket and downtown experience as this years Summer Jam.. but we hooked it up for just $25 :) And I'm happy to tell ya that we OVERSOLD OUT! hahah.. Meaning we sold 5000 tickets and released an extra 500 at the door. 5500 plus listeners experienced the same sensation I did. The up and coming West Coast artists that opened the show also did they damn thang!
Big ups to those that came to the after party too! Sadly I had to go right when Chino4Real came on.. morning show duties called ;) but from what I seen, we had a packed house there too! Shout out to my boy Judon with J.E.T. Limousine for the ride to the show, after party, and back to the crib!
I HAD A BLAST!... and now I wonder like many here at Millcreek Broadcasting... How are we going to top this show, next year??... hmmmm
Thank you everyone that came to this years Summer Jam!
