On Thursday Sept 9th, DJ Lady P and Alex Porter curated A Night of Entertainment with the Stars at Elevate Lounge in downtown Los Angeles. The night consisted of live music and comedy, and there never seemed to be a dry moment the entire night.
Not only was this black-owned event a display of black excellence, but also black elegance. Everything from the decoration and layout of the room to the construction of the drinks was to a tee. Betty’s Secret Catering Service, also black-owned, provided a beautiful seafood spread for the attendees as well as a few additional entrees.
The live performers were Mirraje, Garren, Gemaine, and Alex Porter. The comedians consisted of Trey Elliot, Juhahn Jones, and Alex Thomas, while the special evening was hosted by Kente Scott. Each act kept the crowd’s attention from beginning to end, Kente Scott kept the crowd laughing in between, and Lady P skillfully kept everyone moving and grooving on the turntables.
To close out the show Alex Porter gave a grand finale of a performance like a seasoned veteran. All in all the night was a success. The turnout was great, the food and drink were superb, and the performers shut it down.
Kudos to Lady P, Alex Porter, and their supporting cast – it was definitely a Night of Entertainment.
