The pics are here!
I won’t go through the process of reviewing our own show, but there is a list of thanks that must be acknowledged for this event.
If you weren’t there, there isn’t much I can say except that it was a peak night for the ACT:LIVE brand, Reece Q, RIPROC and Mike Dispenza. The videos looked amazing and all the graphic work done by Nicholas.G.Baish really set the tone for one of the first local, upscale hip-hop events ever to grace Rochester.
Please be sure to check out all the thanks and let the pics speak for themselves.
