Oro Grand Opening

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Punta Cana, DR – November 18, 2011 – If there is one thing ORO Punta Cana demonstrated last night, it is the success of MMG. Leave it to the LIV party posse & the legendary David Grutman to be able to transfer the wild energy and vibe that only Miami’s nightlife can offer. The grand opening of ORO was a fine example. Erick Morillo spun a heavenly set for the club’s grand opening and had the locals and travelers alike jumping in confetti showers and screaming as Jimmy Greenup led our orchestra. It was an amazing night all around with a remarkable turnout. The opening night of LIV’s Dominican sister surely left us eager for our next trip out here so we can do it all again!

Noah Tepperberg

New York, NY – August 17, 2011 – On Wednesday night, nightlife mogul Noah Tepperberg celebrated his birthday with a private dinner at TAO NY followed by an after party at LAVO NY.  Guests were greeted at the door with models on white Vespas cradling white puppies. Kelly Bensimon couldn’t resist and thought about taking one home. Inside TAO, the legendary 40 feet high buddha was dressed in a white shirt with huge glow sticks on its head and neon sunglasses. the dress code for the evening was all white with a hint of neon. Guests dined on TAO’s signature sea bass skewers and kobe beef sliders as they played with glow sticks and watched acrobatic performers, also dressed in all white, twist and twirl from the 80 foot ceiling.
Later in the evening, guests crossed the street to hear kaskade at LAVO where the party continued. noah was presented with a birthday cake that took the form of sneakers since he is a huge sneaker head. then late later, guests continued the revelry downtown at Avenue.

Happy Birthday DJ Irie

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

DJ Irie

June 21, 2011 – Truly one of my oldest friends. DJ Irie is a Miami boy through and through. We went to the same high school (Palmetto), I saw him DJ college parties, and then on to his first gigs in the Grove. We’ve been doing this so long buddy … To see DJ Irie’s career take off is a testament to the real payoff seen only through hard work, dedication, and true passion. As a DJ on 99 JAMZ, Irie helped put the Miami hip hop scene on the map and brought the 305 notoriety world-wide. As the Miami Heat DJ, the crowd partied with you, the team rallied around you, and a city fell in love with you. Irie became a part of the city’s DNA and a true face of Miami. I’ve watched Irie DJ at international hot spots and events world wide. Whether it’s the MTV VMA’s, Sundance, All Star Weekend, or a hotel opening in San Juan, I’ve shot photos of Irie making the crowd go wild … He has a knack for making sure that everyone in the room is smiling and dancing. The Irie sneaker and headphone were soon launched, but it was obvious that Irie was one of the only people I TRULY know who wanted to use his fame and notoriety to help others… After the hugely successful creation of Irie Weekend and the Peace Through Music jewelry line, he has now launched the most impressive extension of the Irie brand to date – The Irie Foundation. I can’t wait to hit the golf course (and of course the parties) this weekend to help you raise money, have fun, and celebrate all for a good cause. And, Happy Birthday DJ IRIE … You are truly one of a kind and an inspiration to all who are lucky enough to call you a friend .
