GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (CNBNews.net)(July 29, 2021)-- Music and Networking is coming to Soul Food Profection, 738 Market Street, Gloucester City on Saturday, July 31 between the hours of 2PM and 8 PM. The entertainment for the day will consist of performers from the South Jersey area.
Thursday we asked Darryl Watson, and K.Trillz , the organizers of the show why they chose Gloucester City, a small community of 11,200 to stage the venue? "We were looking for place to showcase local talent from the South Jersey/Philadelphia region. We found Gloucester City was a great location and connected with the people at Soulfood Profection. We just thought of the idea a couple of months ago, we have co-hosted other venues like this in recent months but this is the first time we are producing a show by ourselves."
"Depending upon how well we are received will determine if we return to Gloucester City. And, if we do we may move it to nearby Proprietors Park," said K.Trillz .
Watson said, "This is a music networking event, presently we have 15 artists locked in; and we are looking to add more all the time. We have time slots already filled for Saturday. We have musicians, comedians, singers, rap artist etc. We are trying to provide an avenue for these individuals to further their career. And, we want that avenue to begin here not in Philadelphia.
"We are trying to build something for the community of entertainers in this region. We are not a fly by night thing. In the entertainment industry there is a lot of BS. We have put a lot of time and money into this idea. There is too much violence in today's society and music is one way you can stop that from happening. All proceeds are going to be used to provide future shows like this one," said K.Trillz.
"Saturday, local businesses and entrepreneurs will be selling their wares, we expect Spider Man to stop by. Funnel cakes will be sold, outside the building we will have a couple barbecues fired up, and the Soul Food Profection will be providing soul food platters to purchase, cost for the platters between $15 and $20. And, there will be games for the kids, "said K.Trillz.
As for the number of people expected to attend Watson said, "We anticipate 75. The capacity for inside the building, where the entertainment will be performing is 89. We will have a TV available so people outside can see their performances. Outside there will be an area under tents for the guests. We expect the crowd to come and go throughout the day. "
K.Trillz, said, "There is no rain date, we are all in. We will have tents available, no rain date!"
Tickets cost $30 for adults, family of six $50, $20 for teenagers, single parent with kid $25, and for a child, the cost is $3
