Overheard: “You just posed between two of the most notorious “exes” in Atlanta…”
Event producers Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols did a wonderful job bring together over 300 Atlanta tastemakers and music industry insiders to celebrated the One-Year Anniversary of the event, held at Park Tavern in midtown.
Heralded as the most exclusive live music showcase in the city author/musician Fonzworth Bentley wowed the crowd with his expertly choreographed routine and R&B group NEXT reunited as headliners of the hot show.
Q first sung a lick while sitting but soon hit the stage, giving the hyped crowed a brief 112 flashback…
But wait!!! There’s more….
Fonzworth took all us ATLiens back to when the “A” was really poppin! Bringing along two dancers who joined him onstage bankhead bouncing and “yeeking”… the only thing missing was Andre’ 3000 when Bentley performed “Don’t Stop”…

In the new artist category, JIVE Records introduced their new hip-hop duo Big Heed & Alien who rocked the crowd to their hit “Tipsy” and I was late and missed them but I heard Alien (who ALWAYS rocks the house with his acrobatic drum routines) did not disappoint…
Alien, Chaka Zulu (DTP), Big Heed
ATLien & Peter Thomas (he’s such a sweetie pie!)
DJ Trauma supplied the music while “lifestyle specialist” Kenny Burns played MC
I’ve known Marlon like forever… (I’m so proud of him!)
The next ATL LIVE on the Park is scheduled for June 14th, I’m sure there will be even more surprises in store….
