So even as we bid Kazmos farewell, we've just received word of a brand new club opening on 22nd and Champa in the former Loft space. After nearly fifteen years of night club promotion, the 3 Deep Productions crew, Francois Baptiste and Alvin LaCabe, together with fellow promoter and former partner KevinKAIN and building owner Andy Manfield, are slated to open Gallery 22 tomorrow night.
The club jumps off with a New Year's Eve blowout hosted by Bad Boy Recording Artist Brian Andrews of Day 26, featuring DJ MARKdaSPOT (Prince, Justin Timberlake) behind the decks. Kingdom from KS-107.5 will be on hand broadcasting live, and there will be a champagne toast at midnight.
"It's ultra sleek," says Baptiste of the renovations that have been made. "We really tried to make it warm and Vegas-y. We're not one-dimensional people. We're promoters, and we've done every aspect of promoting. We can put on actual events. We have a vision, and plan on focusing on customer service and respect."
3 Deep will continue to promote Thursday nights at Vinyl, Friday nights at Sutra and Saturday nights at Zen, and have a welcoming attitude to fellow promoters. "We get it," says Baptiste, who stresses that the room will be open to a variety of events, not exclusively urban-centric as most of 3 Deep's soirees tend to be.
