CHIC :: I Want Your Love (Live Glastonbury 2013) HQ by SHAYMCN5
On Monday August 19, I'll be curating and performing at a new charity festival concert event called AFTEE – an acronym meaning All For The East End.
It's a charity that supports a wide and varied amount of community initiatives. Had it not been for these types of charities, I wouldn't be the person I am today. I was taught everything from music composition and theory to basic social responsibility.
Most people think of me as a record producer, guitarist, or songwriter but I've worked at some of the most notable festivals on this planet and have produced many live events. If there's one thing I know how to do, it's throw a party! We always create an atmosphere that's creative, cool, and friendly...with lots of dancing, lot's of cool people, and lot's of artists!
To give you a vision of what I believe AFTEE can grow into, I'll take you behind the scenes of some of the festivals and parties I've just worked in the past few weeks.
If you're in the NYC / Hamptons area on Monday, August 19, you're invited to come take a step with me, CHIC, and our special guests artists and Let's Dance, Dance, Dance! [GET TIX!] (tax deductible)

Our party starts the moment we hit the stage
A lot of equipment is needed to produce a great show
It takes a lot of construction to produce a great outdoor event
