New Music Seminar kicked off its LA event with a sold-out, Red Carpet Opening Night Party, “The After Grammy Jammy.” Special performances were set by UK sensation, King Charles; Jessie Malakouti; Ben Hunter; Of Verona; DJ Mia; and, featured a spectacular performance by ┬áThe Little Death.

Notes from the performances:
King Charles – I was disappointed that he only performed three tracks but his performance was nothing short of amazing,=.

Jessie & The Toy Boys – The ever-so ┬ábeautiful Jessie Malakouti did her thing on stage. She’s clearly more trendy than some of the artists out right now, especially as she continues to take her “b***es” wherever she goes.

Ben Hunter – Nice, and soulful with a New Orleans-twist is all I can say. But, I’m still shocked that he wore cleats as shoes on stage while he was performing.

Of Verona – They were able to pump a little jolt into the crowd with the lead singer’s beautiful voice.

Blaqstarr – He’s a better DJ than singer/rapper. He shouldn’t be allowed on the mic, yet.

The Little Death – I’m not a fan of their genre (country-rock) but I can see why their getting pretty big. They have an outstanding band from lead singer to backup singers, they’re all great.
