A rule of thumb that I have toward parties that I do not attend is that a party is a flop when there are not any pictures/videos on social media the next day. I thought that this was the case with Allison Hinds party on September 9th at SugarDaddys, but some of the feedback that I got from people who were there changed my assumption.
Some of the good things that I heard from friends and individuals who were at the event was that Allison‘s gave an excellent performance and gave people their money’s worth and I am not surprised by that since she is known to give great shows. A member of the venue’s security team who took a picture with her that night said that she is very friendly off the stage and is a great performer. I also asked about the turnout, and the vibes at the party and people were telling me that the party was lit and that it was packed.
The main reasons why I thought that the event was not going to do well was the venue as SugarDaddys is not a club that is known to be big on Soca music. A friend told me that the club’s owner loves/supports Soca and I initially thought “well what about the people that frequent SugarDaddys?”. That sort of reasoning was wrong of me since having a club making such efforts as bringing in the Queen of Soca to host and perform is a win. To have the opportunity to share the gift of Soca to people who are not familiar with and have them fall in love with it is a win.
The more venues that we can get in the city that are willing to throw soca parties, the better.
Now back to the event’s lack of coverage on social media, why not have a photographer or a video crew at the event? To post footage the day after the event is so important because you want to make the people who decided to skip your party regret skipping it by showing them how the party is crazy. All I can say is that SugarDaddys dropped the ball on that one. Maybe I’ll make a YouTube video on this in greater depth.
