Fortune Sound Club celebrates 5 years with SisQó [Review]
Vancouver, BC – Fortune Sound celebrated their five year anniversary this Thursday in style hosting a first class line up of talent as well as reliable in-house DJs. Marlon J English, Cherchez, Rico Uno, Trizzy Mane, Genie, Sincerely Hana, Lechance and Tone got the room warmed up nice and proper before the special guest host made his way to the stage. The place was so packed you’d have thought the new iPhone was being launched all over again.
After several hours of classics and remixes courtesy of the above mentioned talent, the man of the hour SisQó graced the stage with his presence. All of five-foot-something rocking a red and black track suit and an enormous dragon piece on a platinum chain, he was a sight to be seen. A special point of interest were his white sneakers that lit up with a strip of lights on the back, making him look a bit like the black Buzz Lightyear.
SisQó was enormously entertaining on stage, dancing Salsa with his mic stand, serenading the barely legals in the front row and doing all kinds of dance moves and flips on stage. The only down side was that it was over so quickly. He ended his set with the mega hit “Thong Song” and skipped off into the distance to a roar of applause and screams.
A perfect celebration for Fortune Sound Club with friends, family and supporters all in the cut. The end of the evening held yet another surprise guest as Machine Gun Kelly, who is in Vancouver working on a upcoming film, tore off his leather and stepped on-stage to thrash to “Wild Boy” with Vancity’s very own DJ Flipout. A perfectly wild ending to evening – Happy Birthday Fortune Sound Club!
