After the wonderful gala we headed over to the Official After Party held at the ultra chic Hiro Ballroom to conclude the night. We were thoroughly entertained by the sounds of The BeaTards, a super eclectic group consisting of DJO, Chuck Wild, and UTK the INC. Their energetic performances got party started and had everyone on the dance floor. What a good way to start a party, besides an open bar! We became instant fans of this group and look forward to catching their next performance in NYC. Here are two quick clips of their performance we shot in the midst of dancing!
DJ ?eustlove (Questlove of The Roots) was the featured DJ of the evening, spinning the best playlist we have heard in a long time. Everyone from Kanye West to Al Green, he was a pure genius on the 1s and 2s. Definitely a great way to end the night. Check out a video we shot below.
