What a great time we had this weekend, at Fresh Tone Productions 1st Youth Party event produced by Community Essential. The youths in the Maywood, Illinois area came out and showed out in a positive way. No arguing, no violence, just good hip hop music of today played by the awesome Dee Jay Kell-O-G and great performances by Fresh Tone Productions artists Rapper Trenzetta who performed her single On My Mind and R&B singer AJ who debut his new single titled ‘ O.M.G ‘ both song were produced by music producer Fresh Tone of Fresh Tone Productions below is a link to OMG on soundcloud. take a listen https://soundcloud.com/fresh-tone-productions/aj-omg
AJ is the youngest son of music producer Fresh Tone and has become a great producer in his own right. AJ not only produces tracks for local artists but he also writes for many as well. You can hear AJ voice singing hooks to many local artists songs. AJ performance of O.M.G which stands for ‘Oh My God‘ had the young ladies wanting more from him. AJ reassure his adoring fans, he will be performing for them again at one of the future events.
Learning how to do all the new dances from the Nae Nae to the Quam, had my whole body sore, like I had a workout. What happen to the old dances like the ‘ Bump, Pop locking, stepping etc.’ The youths of today, show they have abundance of energy and boy do they have some crazy dance moves. Serena Jones who is the author of the book ‘ Woman on fire ‘ and mother of performer Trenzetta attended the event with her three daughter and was pleasantly surprise of how her daughter performance was received by the youths. Trenzetta performance to her new single titled ‘ On My Mind ‘ lasted approximately three and half minutes, however the lyrics and the melody tones on the keyboard plus the thumbing bass driven beat, made the song immediately a hit with the youths. During Trenzetta entire performance, the youths bust a move. Ya Dig! I don’t know how they can move so fast or twist in them positions with out hurting something, but our youths are so talented i tell you. The whole atmosphere inside the dance was one of love and enjoyment. If only you good see the smiles on the youths faces. Several youths from Irving Middle School attended and said they wish the had a dance place to go to weekly or monthly, where they can enjoy themselves in Maywood. With youths programs drying up everywhere, communities are hit directly and our youths are suffering. This event was promoted a $5 entree fee however promoters decided to let the youths enter totally free also our sponsors ( Maywood Mentoring, Walgreen’s, Home Depot, J&J, Panera Bread, Jenny’s Pizza. Maywood Park District, Maywood Family Dental Center, Community Essential, Fresh Tone Productions, etc) provided refreshments that was off the chain. youths got to carry a goodie bag of snacks home and by the smiles on their faces, I knew what was inside the bags, must have been worth their while. Thank you sponsors
