It has been a couple weeks since the big night of, recognition, respect and celebration of the Late, Great Nujabes’ contribution to our eardrums. Peaceland: A World Without Words was as much spiritual as it was exciting! We’d like to thank everyone for coming out to this special event and helping us to make the first official U.S. Nujabes Tribute event a TOTAL SUCCESS!!! Just under 300 funky souls came out and celebrated the life, Beats, breaks, and harmony of Nujabes- meaning that Nujabes will forever be memorialized at Bobby Mckey’s – Every Special event bringing in 200 or more get’s honored with a special Bobby McKey’s License Plate Plaque. Once the numbers we in we immediately asked for Nujabes’ name to be put on the Plate.
With that said, we’d like to thank everyone who was involved in front and behind the scenes including- Substantial and Hydeout Records for trusting us with this delicate project, The General Store Inc. for an incredible media campaign and other support, and the Peaceland performers: Bop Alloy (Substantial & Marcus D) Emancipator, Pase Rock- and Apani B, Truth from God’s Illa, Steph Love, DJ Asu Rock, and Artist Aoi Yamaguchi. We’d also like to thank Kokayi, DJ Jav for trusting us with what some DJ’s consider their FIRST BORN, Eddie from Tombs 4 Art photography, Christian & Matt Oh, B The Second Letter, Ike, Javier, Mr. Translator Man, and a big huge thanks to Bobby Mckey’s for having us, our Sponsors, Funimation, Tokidoki, Ketchup, The Find magazine, and Light It Up- The Grand Illumination. Most of all we’d like to thank each and every one of you for coming out and Sharing the night with us!! It wasn’t just your appearance but your participation that helped to make the entire night an exceptional grand salute to one of the Universe’s most talented souls.
And to answer the biggest question of the night… Yes we will be doing it again!
