Let's Hear It One Time for Da' Funk...

A Conversation with Jason Orr was the topic for this past Sunday on RCR! Presents Real Discussions. Jason has always claimed Atlanta as his home and has seen it continue to grow over the years. Born in Savannah, GA and raised in the A. He was always a creative being and loved it when he was sent to his room so he could continue to create. 

In the early years, he was a dancer in group winning talent shows, he learned about lighting, production and the list goes on and on.  His love of music was always there. However, when his mom took him to legendary concerts and shows, that's when his mind was blown. 

You'll have to check out the interview to hear how FunkJazz Kafe® was birthed, all the people that Jason gives credit to and where his inspiration came from.  His film FunkJazz Kafe® ~ Diary of a Decade is a critically acclaimed must see so, when it comes to your city, don't miss it. It captures 10 out of the 23 years of the FunkJazz Kafe® era. 

Thank you, Jason Orr, for sharing and spending time with us. Thanks to Instinct Radio for letting us break this bread on air.  And thanks to you, you and YOU for listening, liking, sharing and showing support. 

Feel free to view all 3 parts of this conversation on my timeline or on the Real Chicks Rock!™ YouTube Channel.

Remember to...

~ Keep forms of inspiration close to your soul.
~ Either get your mind blown or blow minds.
~ Work on things that could leave a legacy.

Until next time, continue to...#ROCKon

RCR! Presents Real Discussions!  

Topic: A Conversation with Ken Rye. Aired on September 17, 2017.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please meet Ken Rye ~ The Strategy Guy! 

I was fortunate that our schedules aligned and I was able to have A Conversation With Ken Rye on RCR! Presents Real Discussions. This one put me in a humble position because not only was I a fan of his when he was WCLK 91.9 FM here in Atlanta, but he also became my mentor.  His early days at the radio station taught him well as he met some of the most influential artists in the business.  His radio and business partner Ken Beatty also played a significant part in Ken's life. This year reflects 10 years since Ken Beatty has passed, however, his presence and words of wisdom live with Ken today. 

Ken has the ability to constantly see talented, skilled individuals and provide strategic suggestions that take their brand to the next level.  He gets it and understands what drives markets, global presence, and brand recognition. 

Working for major corporations was his focal point as well as bringing live shows to the Atlanta area.  Ken believes that the connections between an audience, the artist, and the music make it all magical. 

Now, Ken Rye and I work together in producing live shows and entertainment under his brand Hot Ice Live. 


There's so much to say about this guy from his early days in Detroit, growing up in Chicago and then his Morehouse years in Atlanta. Marketing, Strategic Planning and his love for music all make up the man we know and see working with so many today. He's got history, stories and loads experience to paint the picture of Atlanta, various artists and the world of entertainment. 

Go check out the full interview on the Real Chicks Rock!™ YouTube Channel.

Special thanks to Ken Rye for coming by and spending some time with me. Thanks to Instinct Radio for giving us the space and time to have the interview. 

Remember to... 

~Take every opportunity to build relationships.
~ Leave people with a good experience. 
~ Make every step lead you towards becoming legendary. 

Until next time, continue to... #ROCKon 

A Conversation with Lil' Louis

RCR! Presents Real Discussions Special Edition Show

Special Edition of Real Chicks Rock - RCR! Presents Real Discussions Radio Show

Show Air Date: 08/29/2017

Compromising is NOT an option...

It was an insightful, informative and inspiring conversation with what he considers himself as The Founding Father of House, Lil Louis. He's was in Atlanta for his album review and afterparty and came by to talk with me on the Special Edition of RCR! Presents Real Discussions.

The stories, the parties, the music and his love and respect for the his mom and dad were felt throughout the conversation. He started deejaying at an early age and fell in love with how the room came under a place of authority once they heard Kool and The Gang's Jungle Boogie. From that point, he knew that he and music would be connected.

He was an athlete, a straight 'A' student and musician. He was doing a lot at a young age but he felt that's what he needed to do in order to use all the gifts he has. He lives and moves in a space where using all his gifts has a sense of urgency. He will not compromise who he is as an artist and advised the listeners to do the same.

Take a moment to listen to the full interview on Real Chicks Rock! You Tube channel.

Thanks to Lil Louis for taking time out of his busy schedule to come by and share. Shoutout to Instinct Radio for giving me the time and space. Special shoutouts go to WildPitch for making this happen.

Remember...

There is no box so, work on who you are, stay creative, stay unique and continue to... #ROCKon

7th Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival 2017

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream! 

Ice Cream is one thing that most people enjoy and can't seem to get enough of it. For the past 7 years, the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival has been held in downtown Atlanta at The Meadows at Piedmont Park and this year's event was a great success. 


This free family fun event is always open to the public. The festival was an all day event from 11 am to 6 pm with every possible style and flavor of ice cream you could think of. Over 120 vendors and sponsors participated. There were amazing Live entertainment and lots of activities were going on for kids to the adults; Wellness Activities like Yoga, Exercise routines, and the kid's zone were available. It was a nice day and the best time to get out and have some fun in the sun. 


We give thanks to the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival for allowing Real Chicks Rock! to come on board as a sponsor this year.  It was a wonderful opportunity and experience of connecting with the many facets of people (close to 20,000 people) who participated.  We look forward to joining forces with AICF in 2018.
