Raised by 17 people in 17 months

Greetings Everyone,

My name is Susan "Lady Flava" Koshi of Seattle, WA.  I am passionate about providing a variety of platforms for the artists that are unknow to the mass, the seasoned and prepared talents scattered around the world...just need the spotlight to show the world who they are and why they believe you should gain your attention.

I began this journey from back in the days of Flava Coffee House in Seattle, WA (2003-2008) to starting my own radio show in 2009 to present along with advocating on social media to the artists wanting to go to the next level along with impressing upon the fans that we hold a responsibitlity in the success of the Indie Artists.  When I speak on Indie Artists, please know that I am not just speaking of Music Talents, but of those that create in all art forms and genres.

I always say this, "What would the world be like without art.  I don't even want to imagine."

My goal for 2017 is to create an event in Las Vegas, NV to allow such artists to hit the stage in the Entertainment Capital of the World.  When I first announced my interest in do so, people from all over reached out to me,  showing an interest in meeting up in Vegas....

...So I will turn this into a weekend which will include a Meet & Greet, Open Mic along with a very professional showcase.

Why do I know I will be successfull?

I will be successful because of the journey I have been put on as Lady Flava has provided me with a plethra of experinces, growth, knowledge, connections along with heart and determination...This will be a great success. Besides the fact that I have a vartiety of connects already established in Vegas that will support me with this project.

Flava's Lounge in Vegas 2017.  The goal is for it to take place the first quarter of the year.  This will give my team the opportunity to raise the money needed for the venue and to pay the featured artists. This also gives you time to save and attend this great event with us.

The more that is raised, the more Flava can do to go , beyond the vision that is already set in place.  Or the more we can provide assistance with select peoples regarding travel expenses and or hotel accomodations.

The more we raise the more we can do!  The success of this 1st event will open the doors of doing more of them in Vegas and other locations along with Seattle, WA where I am from.

This is my dream, but my dream includes a variety of creative souls, allow them th opportunity to see what it feels like to hit the stage in Vegas and to network with others of like mind.  For the fans to get a taste of some talents they may not know.

This event will show that we can band together and CREATE OUR OWN INDUSTRY...The way that it needs to be...Supporting Qualified Artists and not to Expoite them nor their talents for self gain.

Please join Marlex Records and Unity Through Arts Exchange in offsetting the expenses of this event with your in-kind donation. UTAE will be giving $500.00 towards this project.
