This Event Forever Changed WB&L…

Two years ago, the WB&L tribe created their first event exclusively for adults.  And as history would tell it, they decided to do it on Valentine’s Day.  It was, and still is, a one-of-a-kind experience of hip-hop culture for fans, artists, couples and even critics….

This year WB&L has extended #ScratchSipPaint to the entire Valentine’s weekend, hosting four days of “Scratch Sip and Paint” for couples, groups of friends, or people on a first date to make memories they would never forget.  This is your invitation to celebrate with the WB&L tribe this Valentine’s Day weekend to celebrate romantic love, the love of good friends, and the love of hip-hop culture.

From Words, Beats & Life:
As you may know, we are gathering to celebrate the life of one of my close friends, Cool “Disco” Dan on Saturday at 9:30 Club. I would be very grateful if you could share this within your business and social networks. I hope to see you there yourself.


On Saturday August 19th, the 9:30 Club will open its doors for a public memorial service for DC’s own folk hero, Cool “Disco” Dan at 11:00 am. The service starts at 11:30 am sharp and runs for an hour. This is not a ticketed event, admission is free and space will be on a first come first serve basis. The 9:30 Club has generously donated its venue so the community can pay their respects and give their goodbyes to Dan. Even if the venue reaches capacity everyone will be accommodated who wants a moment to visit Dan’s ashes.

The service will be led by Go-Go legend Big Brother CJ with special guest speakers and music including DJ Flexx, Rare Essence featuring Jas Funk, Big Tony of Trouble Funk and surprises that will make Dan smile down on everyone.

Please come out and help give Dan a proper DC sendoff.
