SPECIAL NOTE: DO NOT DELAY THIS YEAR!
This year, Southern University celebrates 100 years on The Bluff. And frankly, I've heard from people that I haven't seen in years who are anticipating Homecoming this year in hopes of reconnecting with fellow Jaguars from the greatest era ever! Add to that my tradition of bringing out some of the best SU Alums and you have a recipe for another epic reunion year. I hope you don't wait until the last minute to purchase tickets for this event and here's why...
If you attended my event last year then you know it was crazy at the door. I'm NEVER cool with that. So, I'm keeping it simple this year... There will be NO DOOR SALES and tickets will only be available online. This should keep things a little more exclusive to our Jaguar family and like-minded individuals that you may want to share this event with. There will also be NO BOTTLE SERVICE and tables will be on a first come, first seated basis. I just want to take a break from that this year so we can just network and enjoy the libations, conversations and vibrations. Paretti Jaguar will be in the House adding to the ambiance as well as some other surprises I have in store in store for you. And as usual... the music will be BANGIN'!
THE MUSIC: STILL "RATCHET-FREE"
I shouldn't have to say this but...
- If you love artists like Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Andre 3000, Bun B, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, The Roots and various Hip Hop/R&B classics... then you're coming to the right place.
- If you love artists like Gucci Mane, Chief Keef, Young Thug or Waka Flocka... then this may not be your cup of tea.
No disrespect to the latter artists mentioned because they definitely do their thing. It's just not my thing. Besides, there will be at least 5 other events in town that night where you can hear that. And even though Hip Hop and Classics will dominate most of the evening, I look forward to sprinkling in some House, Reggae, Soul and NEW joints. So, prepare for a journey from old to new and a strictly "open format"!
It's at the Mall of Louisiana so the parking is ample and costs $FREE.99
I love REAL music.
I love taking risks.
I love that Southern University taught me this.
The ladies will come Vogue because they know I go rogue.
And I'm never pigeon-holed because I keep my shows on the road.
So prepare for this journey through what you've been yearning.
I am a Jaguar. A product of Higher Learning.
Beats will be Top Class. Magna Cum Louder
Homecoming is ours. You should cherish these hours.
A night of melodies over memories.
And anniversaries of our beloved University
Because we can't get enough of our time on The Bluff
It's one of the most unique stories ever told
And no, we all don't bleed the same
A chosen few bleed Blue & Gold
In the groove,
Chicago | Los Angeles | Baton Rouge
When & Where
Kendrick “Drack” Muse celebrates 20 years in entertainment. After receiving his first set of turntables at age 14, Muse was soon invited to be a guest mixshow DJ at WKKC in Chicago while still in high school. From that moment he knew he would be a DJ for life. While continuing his education at Southern University in Baton Rouge where he excelled as a Mass Communications major, he quickly became the go-to DJ on campus. His “invitation only” hip hop nights at Club Dreams became legend, and grew so popular that students were bootlegging his invitations. Not only did this legendary night help him afford to put himself through college, it afforded him another opportunity in radio. Upon graduation, he returned to radio at WEMX “Max 94.1”, where he served as an on-air personality and launched the critically acclaimed hip hop show “The Sunday Headbob”. Feeling the need to expand to a bigger market, he moved to Los Angeles to further his career in music. The move opened a whole new audience for him – one that was even more receptive to his unique, soulful style of performance.
After moving to Los Angeles, it wasn’t long before he landed his dream job with Universal Music Group, where he served for 7 years as the Licensing Specialist under the Universal Motown Record Group working directly with a wide range of artists from David Banner and Lil Wayne, to Erykah Badu and Melanie Fiona. He is a master of communicating with mainstream artists as well as those in the underground. However, his passion is communicating through music by moving the crowd on the dance floor. He has performed at countless high-profile events for artists like Prince, Patti LaBelle, Bernie Mack, Fader, Essence, All-Star and Super Bowl XLV to name a few. He is co-founder of Extra Mild Sauce, an event marketing team and creators of L.A.’s largest Soulful House Music Festival, SOULNIC. However, his favorite gig of all-time is being a husband and father of two.
Where is Bar Louie?
Bar Louie is a fantastic restaurant and bar located at 6401 Bluebonnet Blvd. and is part of the Mall of Louisiana complex of restaurants.
Is there a dress code?
In the past we have always disliked, and rarely enforced dress codes at our events, but we enjoy making a positive impression as well. I mean let's be honest, we're Alumni. We're on another level. I'll leave it at that.
Is this event exclusive to Alumni?
Yes... and No. It would defeat the purpose to set up an event catered to Alumni if we opened this promotion to the general public. However, we realize that many of you may want to invite your spouse, family or friends so we’ll leave the word-of-mouth promotion to you and keep this event “in the family”.
Can I pay at the door?
No. This is in an effort to minimize wait times and limit the amount of people who aren't in the know of how we do it. Let's keep ithis event special by word-of mouth only, okay?
We also suggest that you...
- Bring business cards
This is YOUR moment so don’t let this networking opportunity pass you by. We’d love to know what you’ve been up to and how you’ve progressed since our days on the yard.
- Designate a driver
This is important! There are also hotels within walking distance (like the Renaissance Hotel for example). Enjoy yourself and drink responsibly.
Thank you and GO SU!!!
