#PCCBuzz Shawn Mendes Parties in Philly, The Chainsmokers Spotted, MIA Road Closures

Good Thursday throwback. Let’s see what’s happening around town in #PCCBuzzShawn
I sure do miss those days when Phillies wives, Phillies players hosted fun charity fundraisers. Here’s Stephanie Kendrick (wife of Kyle) hosting a charity shoe auction along with MC GN Kang *now Butler. Both these ladies have moved on from Philly – GN is in San Diego with hubby Ian and son. Stephanie and Kyle live in Florida, when Kyle isn’t playing for the Boston Red Sox. They have two kids  Kyle Kendrick Jr., Sophia Marguerite Kendrick. 7 years ago I was covered Kyle’s surprise 25th birthday party.

ShawnShawn Mendes spent quite a bit of time in Philly this week leading up to his concert at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. He stayed at The Logan hotel on The Parkway, enjoyed dinner at Urban Farmer, checked out the Parkway view at rooftop bar The Assembly and worked out at LA Fitness 2425 S 24th St, Philadelphia, PA 19145 a few times. Seems Shawn has a membership there as he works out at LA Fitness across the country on many of his tour stops. Another stop he makes is the fan photo stop as he’s doing here with Ian Aubry, who you might recall brought Dance-rock band DNCE to his Social Media Marketing class at Temple last year.  Monday night Shawn Mendes , Charlie Puth and crew celebrate the end of their North American tour at Buffalo Billiards at 118 Chestnut St.

I was down the shore when this nugget came into my email, at first I was thinking can it keep til Tuesday, nah, I did the intro to the sender with Jennifer Logue at Philly Metro which resulted in this great article. Then I sent it along to Fox 29 and they ran it too. Here are additional photos and the story. Thank you EBE for thinking of me.

Philadelphia’s own EBE’s L.A Starz Plays with The Chainsmokers At A Wedding  

8-24-2017 10-33-29 AM (Custom)

Morgan and Harry met and fell in love…who knew one of Harry’s best friends was Andrew Taggart of the Chainsmokers!??! So close that Andrew had Harry add backup vocals to their hit song Paris! Needless to say, when Morgan and Harry contacted EBE to enlist the amazing LA Starz for their wedding, they did so knowing the band could effectively provide a concert like atmosphere….and boy did they! The 18pc band not only provided an incredible array of music and precision but added an exciting backdrop to the 3 song “concert” when Chainsmokers,

along with bride and groom and members of the wedding party, took to the stage and performed Closer, Paris and Something Just Like This. The over 200 attendees were blown away as The Rittenhouse turned into the show of the year and the wedding of the century!!
