MUSIC INDUSTRY ANNUAL LEGENDS & ICONS PICNIC HOSTED BY THE LIVING LEGENDS FOUNDATION

11 Oct

As a fellow tastemaker, I had the pleasure of attending the Legends & Icons 7th Annual Picnic.  The Legends  & Icons picnic was held on Saturday, October 8th, and hosted by The Living Legends Foundation in Woodley Park in Van Nuys California.

This annual picnic celebrated music artists, music executives—our past, passion & progress to those who paved the way for others in the Music Industry.  It was great seeing some legends in attendance– including George Daniels, Chicago Music Retailer of George’s Music Room, Jamie Foster Brown of Sister 2 Sister Magazine, Lee Bailey of EURweb,and many other countless journalists, publicists and retailers who were honored for their contributions for working behind-the scenes in the Music Industry.

The picnic also honored those in the Music Industry that have passed from October 2015 to 2016 with a moment of silence.

I had a great time, it felt like a family reunion of Industry people–a chance to reconnect to those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to bring forth the artists that many enjoy. All in all the food, family environment, and fun brought these important components to the event and it was all love.

The host committee consists of Carole Carper, Charlene Cyrus, Chris Jones/Jonz, Joan Scott, Kevin Fleming, Lee Bailey, Marty Mack, Pat Shields, Renee Givens, Rick Nuhn, and Wendell Bates.
