Note From me & “The Geator with the Heater” threw a Party A Few Weeks back at The Kimmel Center
Today’s entry is going to be short and sweet. I am just burned out. I photographed or attended about 4 events today, which isn’t always a surprise, but for some reason I am just exhausted (ie catch the Arrow Swim Club party on tonight’s The Scene NBC Philadelphia Ch 248 and tomorrow here on PCC.)
Now granted I am writing this at 3:15AM and most of you are asleep, and it doesn’t normally bother me to write my entry at this time, well now that I am no longer a paralegal, anyway this run on sentence is going to drive so many people crazy, well just some people, please don’t call me Charlie Sheen.
I am being picked up at 7:30AM and taken to NBC10 studios to do my segment this week, plus chat with the nice folks over there about a future project and then I need to be back in town for an event tomorrow night.
ANYway I am sounding like Charlie Sheen. This is a good example of a story that got away. Sometimes I have so much content I over look events and material that should be timely. This event happened the night of the Academy Ball. In between the concert and gala I ran over to the Kimmel Center to shoot Jerry Blavet’s VIP party. Most of the photos have been distributed to monthly mags.
On Saturday evening (January 29, 2011) after a near sold out show featuring musical soul singers like Darlene Love, Freda Payne, Kenny Vance and the Planotones, Tony Williams with the Platters, and The Duprees, Philadelphia’s favorite disc jockey, Jerry Blavat, known by many as “The Geator with the Heater,” enjoyed a post-show reception catered especially by Wolfgang Puck Catering, at the Kimmel Center’s Lounge by Wolfgang Puck.Jerry Blavat, Darlene Love, Wolfgang Puck Catering Chef Will Brown, Freda Payne
