We got to perform Taylor Gang on the BET awards and it aired last night! Pretty cool stuff with the pyrotechnics! Wiz of course kills it. Check out pics from our taping last week http://www.djbonics.com/uncategorized/bet-awards-snaps/
On September 30th we got to rock in Lewisburg, Pa at Bucknell University. It great to see Wiz interact with the fans. I remember when Wiz was doing shows for very small crowds and he was able to meet his fans after shows and do autographs! Now that the show are humongo it’s a little hard for Wiz to get some real time with his fans. So when Wiz got a chance to meet some students who helped organized and execute the show at Bucknell. It’s great to see him interact with his fans and also see how the fans are touched by him! Enjoy some rare backstage footage with Wiz and the Gang!
Our first time in Mobile, Alabama for Bayfest. It was incredible! Enjoy the pics!

On Friday I was lucky enough to fly back to Toronto for the day for a little DJ action at Cheval in the evening. I got roll with the homies MC Sir Lance-A-Lot and Isiah from the 194 crew. The short time only allowed for a few things to check out but I wasn’t disappointed. I got to see one of the Flagship stores for New Era! This place is so dope. Fitteds and snapbacks for days. It’s it weird that I bought a Pittsburgh Pirate hat there? Ha Ha. Perhaps the coolest thing at the store is this hat steamer they have which steams out wrinkles and gives the hat the perfect crispy touch. They people at the store even let me sign a hat which they put in the “autograph hat” glass case. Names like A-Trak, Clue, and Drama also blessed some of the hats in the case. I also got to get up with DJ Cruz. Dj Cruz is one of the well known and upcoming Dj’s from Switzerland. He was a Redbull Thre3style favorite in his country. Check out his 3style set here. He too was in town with the 194 group throwing down on decks in TDOT. Later through the recommendation of my dude DJ Vex I spent some time KOPS a great record store. No Bull shit just great records! Of course I had to get my hand on some 12 inches. Check out http://www.kopsrecords.ca/
The day ended of course with party at Cheval Night Club. It was bananas. The crowd was definitely getting it in and the drinks were flowing…. A little too much… I almost missed my flight the next day haha… Enjoy the pics guys and hopefully I’ll be back in Toronto soon! Thanks to Wristpect, Isiah, Lance, 194 Group, the lovely Quinn, Cruz, and everyone who came out for a great night at Chevall!
Enjoy the pics… Thank you Toronto!
September 26, 2011 marked the 1st Toronto stop of Wiz Khalifa’s Rolling Papers tour. With two sold out shows back to back, Wiz left his fans screaming louder with each song. Though Big Sean wasn’t a part of these shows, attending Taylors were more than satisfied with Wiz’s 1 hour set with DJ Bonics on the 1 and 2’s. Khalifa’s performance didn’t lack energy, nor diversity. READ MORE HERE
Big Sean & Mo Beatz
Last week we taped the BET awards at it airs this Monday at 8pm! We performed Taylor Gang with some crazy pyrotechnics and all! I thought I seriously was gonna catch on fire.

Seeing DMX pull his truck up to the dressing room area and blast his truck. See our good friend Jah. Wiz got everyone stoned. Seeing Big Sean and Mobeatz. Watching Heavy D perform!

Yes! Toronto has become like a second home! After shutting it down a few weeks ago with Wiz and a crazy after party at C-Lounge, I’m bringing it back to Cheval for a night of dancing and drinking! Love Canada! I feel like the cats up there really get into the music so Dj’n is always a pleasure. Thanks to Wristpect and the 194 Group!
Wow! What an event! Last night was the Steeler Fashion Show! It’s the annual event that has helped raise over 5 million dollars since ’94! This event is coordinated by the Kia Tomlin wife of Coach Tomlin and Greta Rooney wife of the owner of the Steelers Dan Rooney. The event started with a epic red carpet walk. It continues with drinks, dinner, and desert. Then the fans enjoy fully produced fashion show which staring the players themselves! This production does not go without the help of the Reebok Dance Squad, University of Pittsburgh Dance Team, Cheerleaders, local models, and of course yours truly providing the soundtrack for the catwalk! I got loads of pictures on the way, but I wanted to give you a couple shots of the epic annual event!

And of course the hot models and Pitt Dance Team/Cheerleaders!
Thank you a million times to Greta, Kia, Alana, Mark, Becky, Pete Butta, Katelyn, Griff, for a magical night!

I found out yesterday out of all NFL team charity events, the Pittsburgh Steeler’s Fashion Show generates the most money! Wow. And to be apart of this event 3 out of the last 4 years is an honor! Last night we rehearsed for the big event tonight! The even which is held at Heinz Field is a fun night filled with, music, fashion, and food. And of course attendees of the event get to see their favorite Pittsburgh Steelers “swaggin” down the runway in the name of charity. Between this and a “Taste Of The Steelers” Event on Oct. 29, the Steelers organization is projected to raise over 700,000 for UPMC. They will have raised over 5 Million since fundraising efforts in 1994. And what do I get to do? Dj’n and a little hosting! I get to freestyle 2 runway scenes with models and players. Here some pics of last nights rehearsal! I should have a full recap of the fun tonight this weekend! Thanks to Alana, Greta Rooney, Mark, Becky, and The Steelers Organization. Looking forward to the big event tonight!
Thanks to Katelyn Rose Petraitis for the flics.
