..’tis the season to be Irie.

December 10, 2009

2009 as been historic in SO many ways! Hasn’t it?

* New President and administration in Washington.

* End of a truly dramatic decade for a lot of us. So many weddings and babies it seems for me personally (not mine , yet!)

* Loss of WAY TOO MANY celebrities. (I have my own suspicions.)

* ….and, finally the launch of my company, I N I Productions and Events, LLC.

A little bit about what I am doing and what InI is… In August of this year I finally decided to form an entity that performs promotional services: marketing, production, consultation, band management, multimedia solutions and social media networking/management.

The concept is “Reggae Music for Good Causes.” I have a dream that brings live Reggae music and non-profits together for exposure and education.

The general theme is to take a good cause and promote it as ” a concert and benefit/fund raiser all in one.”

Why Reggae? Because it transcends borders, language, race and social class. Rarely is there ever a curse word or reference to anything controversial, albeit, Smoking organic herbs. Reggae is very family friendly and danceable. More often than not, the music has very healing properties, like soothing rhythms and grounding beats. Most of Reggae’s lyrical content describes a loving world with peace, known as Zion, and encourages people to look outside the bureaucratic and capitalist society referred to as, Babylon.

This may seem trivial, however, it is important because you have to leave Babylon and get out of your comfort zone sometimes. You must learn that the world is in pain and there are some causes that you need to participate in now.

Reggae music gives words of inspiration that help those in need to uplift, unite and inspire one another to overcome adversity. These are the reasons I feel I was called to help others. There is too much suffering and those muted voices need more of us to represent them and promote ways to help. I am giving you the opportunity to help those in need today.

My team and I have some attractive fund-raising accessories and shirts for sale that we use at our events to help raise money with. Below is a link that will take you to my website. Once you see the page you’ll notice some attractive pictures of my wrist with our “Rasta” bands and below them you will see our “I ‘heart’ Reggae Music” shirts.

I have loads of wrist bands available and only a few of the shirts available. I am making these available online because INI has found a charity that helps local families enjoy the season through contributions when they would otherwise be out. That means keeping their house through the new year for some of them. So we need to sell out of EVERYTHING.

Please help me help others. I have been called and now I am doing God’s will.

Together we can take a step toward the promised land of Zion. Rastafari’s believe heaven is a place on Earth.

All it takes is equality and ONE LOVE to realize it.

Let’s make 2010 even more historic with the amount of generosity that we share. Jah Bless.

Slater Bros. Invitational was a windy, wild weekend.

November 12, 2009

I N I came, saw and conquered. Well, nothing was really conquered but the invasion was noticeable.

Team I N I came in numbers and we quickly recruited others by offering a very limited t-shirt release and our “rasta-bands”. The Rasta-bands were a hit. Make sure to secure  yours as they are going fast.

I N I Productions in November

November 4, 2009

We are very excited about the activity we are involved with this month.

First, I N I will be enjoying the festivities provided by the Slater Bros. Invitational. The event is renamed this year.  The event has been known as the Skippy and Sean Slater Invitational. Now, I presume with Kelly’s more active role, they decided to change the title in order  make them all inclusive. Also, the event has changed venues again this year with all the festivities taking place at Coconuts on the Beach in Downtown Cocoa Beach. The venue has a stage and is located right on the beach.

I am excited that it will be taking place at Coconut’s. I N I has approached the management about putting on a show there. The management seemed delighted. Now we have to get the right band to play there.

Hopefully I n I’s wrist bands will have arrived by this weekend. I N I is very excited.  I n I will use the proceeds to help promote reggae music and to fund I N I events. The wristbands will be Rasta colored: green, yellow, red, black. They will be debossed and have a stencil font that will read:  I love (heart) Reggae Music      INI           One Love . They should be a hit.  I n I has a first release of 500 coming out. Hopefully they will sell out by the end of November and we will be on our second run.

Next, the Village of Tequesta, FL will have their 6th Annual Harvest Festival on the 14th of November. I n I will be there with Sweet Justice. Sweet Justice will be playing from 11:30a -1:00p. The event is short and sweet lasting from 11:00 am til 5:00pm. 3 bands will play and rides, games, fun and food for the whole family will be goin’ on.

As I N I mentioned in a previous post, the 9th Annual Jupiter Fall Classic will be going on the following weekend from the 20th-22nd.  I N I will be providing entertainment on Sunday and also hosting slide-shows and radio interviews all weekend long. I n I is very excited to bring Mystic Roots Band to Florida for a mini tour through the state. That following Tuesday we will be in Ft. Lauderdale at Pulp Live throwing a fun party with some very special surprises.

Then Thanksgiving, I will be enjoying thoroughly eating my butt off somewhere. So please send invitations.

Please come out and support Reggae music. Follow @iniproductions on Twitter for more microblogging and up-to-date info.

I N I Productions is excited to be Reggae Music ambassador.

October 8, 2009

So very excited to be a part of the blogging community as a professional.  I am introducing my company and its brand for the first time on wordpress. I am so thankful for being able work with WordPress and the enjoy the benefits as a user.

So now that we are very excited to represent Local Florida Reggae Music and the artists who share in this creative outlet to express love and unity,  allow me to invite you to our website so you may witness all the very fun things we are involved with.

Already we have a couple of artists we work with and promote regularly. You may find them on our artists page.  Big thanks for everyone who has been involved thus far. Your encouragement and support  means a lot.

Also, I n I Productions has adopted not 1 but 2 beaches in Florida. One is in Palm Beach County called DuBois Park and the other is in Brevard County called Pelican Beach. We have partnered up with some local litter prevention organizations and have committed to cleaning up those sites indefinitely.  As always, I n I wants to thank in advance all of our volunteers who will be helping in the future.

We are preparing now to promote some Reggae Concerts here in Florida. The first features Mystic Roots Band at Carlin Park pavilion on Saturday the 21st of November for the Jupiter Fall Classic.  Then on Sunday we feature Herbal Krew at Guanabanas.

We hope to stay quite busy as we believe there is a growing demand for positive vibrations and helping people in need.

Jah Bless
