‘The Big Show’ Music Showcase is Back To New York and Enlists Drewski, Journey Montana, K Goddess and More
Production company 2Talented revived its signature showcase, “The Big Show,” to highlight up-and-coming artists in New York and New Jersey metropolitan areas at Harlem Nights on Friday, July 8, 2022. To amplify the excitement of the concert series, Hot 97 and Love And Hip Hop’s Dj Drewski came through to start the event with crowd interaction.
To open the show, Cinematic Music Group’s Rek Banga and Journey Montana, who some met recognize from the hit CW network tv show “All American,” blazed the stage. Rek Banga performs his drill like a single before bringing Journey to stage to present her Harlem songbird Melodies.
Model and actor turned artist Reggie Revels brought his conscious flow to the stage accompanied by a drummer to bring forth a heavily poetic rap sound with instrumentation of classy trumpet play. The crowd followed along with two song performances leading up to Brooklyn-based artist Mister Mayo taking the stage.
Mayo shared the stage with Long Island’s Heff Da Don delivering a Boom Bap Bop, a track with the crowd moving. Heff Da Don then changed the concert’s momentum while inviting Hot 97’s Who’s Next Winner, K Goddess, to perform their unreleased song, enhancing the energy throughout the venue.
Singer, Songwriter, and Musician Michael From The East then makes his way to the stage to close the show. East allowed his voice to lead the way by performing five songs from his “Prix” project released in 2020. East serenaded the crowd as concert attendees joined in reciting his lyrics in a sing-along fashion. East performed stand-out tracks like “Lie To Me” and “Stutter,” which brought audience members to the front of the stage as he worked the room.
As Michael From The East finished his set, DJ Drewski took the stage to celebrate all the performers and local vendors who took part in “The Big Show” concert series. The show series will head back to Atlanta, where it was founded to kick off its first-ever “88 Fest,” a music festival happening in the heart of Atlanta.
Ki2Talented, the founder of 2 Talented and creator/curator of The Big Show and 88 Fest, shared that her vision was to give artists a platform where ever she goes.
“I just want to make sure that artists have a place to perform and showcase their talent. The vision all came together through wanting to assist artists around me that I want to see win,” said Kia Settles (Ki 2 Talent), founder of 2 Talented.
