To kick off our 30th Anniversary Celebration, WCEP took a Magic Carpet Ride with the legendary John Kay & Steppenwolf, who performed a live concert at Pure Space last Friday, April 15.
Over 500 clients, vendors and friends were invited to kick-off the year-long celebration with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a private concert to commemorate the theme “Still Rockin’ After 30 Years.” In the “Born to Be Wild” spirit, Paparazzi Tonight set up a photo booth where guests posed on a Harley motorcycle.
Pure Space was transformed into a concert hall for the evening, and was completely carpeted and draped-off for sound and privacy. The venue featured a full stage, state-of-the-art JBL VERTEC sound system, and a custom designed light show with over 125 lighting fixtures and 14 moving intelligent lighting fixtures. Projected on an oversized screen behind the stage, a video show accompanied the band’s performance, and was designed and produced by John Kay’s 30-year veteran member and co-songwriter Mike Wilk (who recently joined the WCEP production team full-time).
“I’ve been with John Kay for many years now, and this is the best gig I’ve ever played with John Kay and Steppenwolf!” – Gary Link, Steppenwolf Bass Player
