On April 26, 2019 Treasure Island Resort & Casino located in Welch, MN, hosted a live concert with Multi Platinum artist Snoop Dogg.
The show sold out immediately when tickets when on sale. Snoop Dogg is an American rapper, singer, record producer, entrepreneur, and actor. Snoop Dogg sold 37 million albums worldwide such as Doggystyle in 1993, a favorite of mine. I Grew up listening to this legend, so to see him in person was a privilege and honor, having the ability to share my experience with my readers is an even more of a privilege. making the trip to Treasure Island Resort & Casino was a drive, we took a wrong turn, roads were flooded, but it turned out to be well worth it for the level of live entertainment that this show brought.

So I was very excited to attend the Mozzy show at the Cabooze in Minneapolis, MN on March 14, 2019, hosted by the Queen of Hearts.
The moment I walked into the Cabooze I felt good vibes, Blvck Madonna was on stage rocking it out, doing what they always do even through sound check they was rocking the stage bringing back the originality of Black Rock Genre. I scurried through the Cabooze to check my surroundings, stage entrance, exits, where I could get my most impressionable photographs as a writer, photographer and artist.
