The July edition of the last Summer Soul Sessions was most definitely second to none. With the likes of , DJ Danika, Cream Dream, So Super Sam, Run P., and XXYYXX, we definitely left no stone unturned at the Paper Box. Despite the rain that came and left repeatedly, NYC still came out to BK and even danced the night away with the water falling from the sky.
As they say, 3rd time’s a charm and for our last Summer Soul Sessions of 2012 we’re going out with a bang alongside some of our favorite R&B artists on the rise, Bianca Raquel and Ryan Notes. You should expect nothing less than an powerfully soulful performance from Bianca, that’ll show you that she is in fact a product of the New York City music scene. Seeing as Ryan Notes was willing to sacrifice it in the name of music, do not be surprised to see the same thing once he sets foot on stage as well. We’ll also have Cousin Cole commandeering the vibes with some much needed Moombahsoul for the people. Fresh off of vol. 2 of his So Emotional series in collaboration with Phi-Unit, everyone’s favorite Cousin will be to sure to steam it up for all of the ladies in attendance.
Additionally we’ll have live sounds from the man who’s been bridging the gap between the left coast and everyone else, DJ Klean Kut, as well as DJ Heavyness who got back not too long ago from freshening up Atlantic City.
All this and more will be going down with our host, The Company Man, this Saturday, August 18th from 2PM to 12AM with $4 tacos and $5 Bushmills whiskey specials at the Paper Box (17 Meadow St., Brooklyn, NY).
