WE want to thank everyone that came out and help participate in our anniversary month of doing "Excursions"!!
It was great being apart of a busy weekend in Detroit and closing things out in Chicago.
And we want to apologize to everyone who came out to Excursions: Detroit 2019 and not being able to experience fully where this event was going! Just as we were hitting the peak hour, Detroit's finest decided to pay us a visit and said that they had one complaint about noise and decided to shut us down. A huge disappointment as this was the first time in 8 years that this happened. No one was out of pocket, No one was causing any disturbance outside, just grown people gathering dancing and listening to music. AFTER all that went into this party, and to have the final result ended up with the police being involved.. Makes this a bitter pill to swallow.
At the end of the day, we're back to square one for next year looking for a new space and hopefully a space that will allow us to do our thing. Thank you to several people that help put this event on.. Without your efforts, I wouldn't be writing this at all.
Mimi, Sabine, Terry J., Vincent.. People who love this event and went the extra mile to help us find a space. THANK YOU.
To my staff that deals with me on a regular basis that helps us manages the night. We thank you as well!
To my Djs except Marcellus, thank you for doing what you do and giving the best music that the crowd can experience and enjoy. Shout out to our special guest, Lakuti who played a rocking set that blew us away.. As for Marcellus, we owe him a do over for next year as he was the only one that didn't get to play. Shout out to our dancers!! You guys make the world go around, your presence on the dance floor, baby powder in hand and Kafani blessing the floor with incense is all apart of the experience,Thank you especially!
Thanks to the space owner for allowing us to come in and transform the room at the last minute, the venue change kinda hurt us but, again we were lucky to have a few hours together.. until Next Year!
