ON THE RADAR

VEVO | PENN PLAZA PAVILION

Vevo electrified Penn Plaza Pavilion this week with their VIP private concert showcasing Run The Jewels. Killer Mike and El-P performed some of their top hits, such as "Talk to Me,”  “Call Ticketron” and “Blockbuster Night." Guests swarmed the stage during the intimate performance. A constant flow of delectable finger foods, by Riviera Catering and Events, circulated throughout the evening. Walls adorned with pretzels and doughnuts were especially a hit. Topping off the night, guests were treated to a gourmet ice cream sandwich, after a meet and greet with the band.

SAFE KIDS | SMASHBOX STUDIOS
Safe Kids, a non-profit organization that's mission is "protecting kids on the road, at home and at play" took over Smashbox Studios for a day for children of all ages. VIP guests were welcomed into a whimsical world on a red carpet, stretched under an enormous, colorful balloon arch. Emerging on the other side, guests found themselves amongst skateboarders and other live animals, magicians, double-dutchers, an inflatable ball pit, a stilt-walker, breakdancers and more! Each studio was individually staged to create a magical world for kids and parents alike. Celebrities spotted throughout the day, were Derek Fisher, Terri Seymour, James Van Der Beek, Cobi Jones, Tom Arnold, Alysia Montano, to name a few.

Our friends at Simply Troy produced the wonderland with help from Sunshine Sachs, Classic Party Rentals, Freestyle Events, Backdrops Beautiful, Gold Sky Productions, Elite Balloon Design, LA Partyworks, Yamamoto, and Shawna Tamamoto Event Design, along with an array of food vendors, activity coordinators, and talent. It was definitely a big team effort to produce this memorable day!

SPOTLIGHT PROFILE

GET TO KNOW DJ TASHA BLANK

Tasha Blank is the latest addition to The Kagency Talent Roster. You recognize from her wildly popular, bi-monthly, after work dance party called, "The Get Down," that she founded 4 years ago and is attendance is now bursting at the seams. See what else this talented lady has her horizon.

What is your background and what inspired you to become a DJ?
I was raised in a very musical household. I was on track to become a professional dancer in high school, but realized what I loved most about dancing was the freedom of totally letting loose on the dance floor with my friends. So instead of going to conservatory, I started throwing dance parties! Learning to DJ was a natural extension of my obsession with music, love for dance and the desire to share the amazing experiences I was having on the dance floor with more people. 

What's your go-to song guaranteed to get a crowd on the dance floor?
It's so hard to pick one - but today I was dancing down the street with Earth Groove in my headphones!

Where is the most unusual place you've performed? 
On the side of a tricked-out double decker bus driving across the desert in the middle of a dust storm. (AKA Burning Man)

What three words would you use to describe your music style?
Funky, danceable, and infectious.

Aside from creating music, what are your other passions? 
Creating art with my hands, writing, meditation, and obviously dancing.

If you could play for anyone, anywhere, who and where would it be?
Michael Jackson on the moon. 

What is next for your career?
I'm getting ready to release my first original tracks! I've been in the studio with some amazing co-producers and am finally ready to start sharing this music with the world. 

I'm also about to start doing my NYC high energy afterwork party The Get Down every week. We've been going every other Thursday for nearly 4 years, and it's gotten to big we can't fit everyone anymore! It's really exciting to see such an incredible community grow.
