Island Vibe to mix musical genre

Date Posted: 2009-01-15

Itís not an ordinary club party, but it does promise to rock the island with a full evening of live entertainment featuring American and Okinawan musical artists and groups.

Island Vibe 2009 comes to Salt and Pepper Live House on Saturday, January 23rd, filling the club with soul, hip hop, rhythm and blues and reggae performed by some of the islandís most talented Okinawan and American artists, plus an appearance from west coast rap artist Big Smitty C. The event is being sponsored by Big Eazy Entertainment and D-Shake Productions, which promises to bridge the gap between the American and Okinawan entertainment communities.

Big Eazy Entertainment predicts 2009 to be a big year, as it brings new entertainment concepts to the island, including a Big Eazy Family Block Party in the near future. The entertainment company says itís not focused only on Okinawa nightlife, but rather, on events suitable for all ages. As former members of the American military community but now integrated into the Okinawa community, Big Eazy leaders say they can understand differences and similarities from both communities.

ďIsland Vibe 2009 is just the beginning,Ē a Big Eazy official says. ďWe are trying to put on events that bring Okinawan and American communities together in one place, and have a variety of entertainment for everyone to enjoy.Ē

Soul and R & B singer Homemadesoul, Okinawan hip hop group OBC, southern bred rap group 2 for 1, Okinawan R & B sensation Risa, and local reggae star MoMo will all be on stage at Salt & Pepper. Adding to the mix of vocal talent will be dance and deejay performances by Soul Camp Dance Crew, DJís Jon Jon, Franchize, Okinawan Reggae Sound GodMaking, and Guri Guri.

Advance tickets are now on sale, with menís tickets •1,500 and ladies •1,000. Ticket prices include one drink. At the door, menís tickets will be •2,000 and ladies •1,500. Tickets can be reserved by calling 090-3796-1550 or 090-8400-9554. Ticket orders can be placed in Japanese or English. Salt & Pepper is located in Mihama Carnival Park, where the ferris wheel is located.

Big Eazy Entertainment says that in addition to performers and deejays, it will be giving away free Mixtape CDís of slogs from all artists, and interviews and photo shoots for the newly anticipated Island Life Music Entertainment Magazine to be released later this year. Information on advertising in the new magazine is available from BigEazyEnt_Okinawa@yahoo.com.
