Every 3 months, it goes down at the Hi-Tone on Cleveland! The President of Afternoon Radio, Devin Steel, mixes it up on the turntables with fellow DJs Big Sue, DJ Supaman, and DJ Houston with a live band to some of the essentials in hip hop, R&B, reggae, and house music. It's definitely something you don't want to miss. They call it The Kickback.

          If you've never attended a KickBack, you're missing out on a really dope event in Memphis. I was on the club scene when I was younger, but I had grown tired of the same vibe. I mainly got the impression that most clubs were fashion shows as opposed to parties. The KickBack takes you back to the times when a party was an actual party! Everyone is up dancing and singing along to the hits. This ain't the place to come to hold up a wall.

          If you're looking for a nice set to attend that plays the best of hip hop, R&B, reggae, house hits from the 80s and 90s, which was the best era of hip hop music BTW, then you must make it to the next KickBack. You definitely won't be disappointed. I would describe the crowd as warm and friendly. FYI, there's no need to dress up for this. Ain't nobody there to see what you got on. Dress like you're going to a house party, but wear comfortable shoes. Hi Tone doesn't have lots of seating, but you should be up dancing anyways. 

           To find out the next Kickback, go follow Devin Steel (@devin_steel), Big Sue (@bigsueshouse), DJ Supaman (@djsupaman901) or DJ Houston (@hou_hefner) on IG for the next announcement. I will see you at the next Kickback!!
