Last year we had our first Patina Roller Jam. We had just moved into our studio and had some room to spare- so we decided to have a throw-back roller skating party and invite our clients and partners. People had some fun. For real. So of course, we had to do it again. This time we had some new things going on, first- our studio is jam packed so we had to find the right venue to host the party. Second, we are launching a new collaboration with The Color Condition and wanted to show it off in a big way to all of our guests ( more details on that to come soon- promise. But here’s a hint kids, everything at the Roller Jam is available for rent). Patina was born out of the need for better event decor, being in the planning biz for so long I realized the options were pretty limited which is why I started this company, so our goal for this party was to not just do the same old thing, but to show everyone a different kind of experience, different than they had last year, and different than they’ve had well, maybe ever. Here’s a rundown- more blog posts with deets to come over the next few days.
So this is what we did: We planned an old skool roller skating party with some pretty epic twists. We invited our best friends and clients to party with us, and let me tell you, our people really like to have a good time. They came ready to party.
We decided to do it hood-style, many of our partners in crime were from Brooklyn and a bunch from our immediate neighborhood Bushwick. We hooked up with our neighbors and good friends at The 1896 Studios and Stages. They are right down the block and have the most insane old factory building where they do editorial shoots, music videos, tv shows and some pretty cool events. Jen, Kristin and Loren were the perfect hosts for the evening.
We asked Kenan AKA Chances with Wolves, or one half of the talented duo Les Loups to DJ the party again. His set from last year was totally insane so I knew we’d be in for a crazy good time this year. And, I was right- he was outta control- I mean the shit he pulled out- so goood. Benji at Kayne Live were the pro’s behind making Kenan sound good and keeping the dance floor full with their full team of super nice AV pro’s. I mean they just killed it. If you are looking for someone to do your party hire them- don’t think twice.
The whole event was captured by Chelise Michael Photography and Courtney from Love + Brain Films. We Love Photobooths was there and The Bosco instgram station printed hundreds instagrams that were tagged #PatinaRollerJam throughout the night. All of the images on this post were done by Chelise.
