This project is inspired by many things: -The park renovations. -The brand equity built from San Antonio Parks Foundation and the City's Jazz'SAlive. -The new professionals working and living in downtown - young and older. ---Events such as the Pop-Up shops along Houston St., Puro Pinche Pop-Up concerts and sessions happening at Alamo Music -The love KRTU 91.7 - Jazz San Antonio has shown towards the new efforts happening at Travis.
The project is simple, a "Super Soul Shakedown" dance party at Travis Park. Attendees are not just viewing dancers, but experiencing the park and the surrounding environment in a truly authentic, Awesome SA way.
Super Soul Shakedown event series has deep roots in San Antonio, Soul Music for that matter has deep roots that go all the way back to Sunny and the Sunliners. However, a Super Soul Shakedown has not happened in over a year after Steve Balser, one of the creators of SSS took a job with Red Bull as their Multi Cultural Marketing Director - yep for Red Bull. Two radio programs that gave life to the event series still exist on KRTU.
In short, this is a free event. 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The links below will paint the best picture of this vision and give provide more background on the Shakedown.
