Denver Urban Arts Showcase

Denver, Colorado – April 16, 2016 –Urban Arts Showcase announces the launch of the long awaited event in the city of Denver. It is certainly not easy to put it all together and make a stunning event, but Urban Arts Showcase, UAS is about to give you an authentic old school hip hop experience as it features a street wear fashion show, live performance, dance competition, art exhibition and pop up shops.

Urban Arts Showcase prides itself on staying true to the original elements of hip hop culture which is characterized by four distinct elements, all of which represent the different manifestations of the culture: rap music (oral), turntablism or DJing (aural), bboying (physical) and graffiti art (visual). Even while it continues to develop globally in myriad styles, these four foundational elements provide coherence to hip hop culture.

Over the course of the last three years, Urban Arts Showcase has provided a platform for many brands and artists to engage with consumers and fans in the greater NYC area and are very excited to be expanding to the west coast. Using social media Urban Arts Showcase was able to generate significant exposure online for the participating artists, brands, and events. Making use of a variety of venues, past events were held on the Jewel Yacht (harbor cruise of NYC), Graffiti Art New York in Tribeca, Specials on C (a former bodega turned event space in Alphabet City) and Open House Cocktail Lounge on the Lower East Side of Manhattan with sponsors like G Shock, Reebok, KidRobot, PBR, Box Water, Ciroc, Redbull, Calebs Kola, Cazal Eyewear and many other independent designers.

Elements of hip hop build upon Urban Arts Showcase’s commitment to take the authentic old school experience to the west coast in 2016, the first stop is the city of Denver and the event will be hosted at the Savoy at Curtis Park which occupies the second floor of a landmark Victorian building in Denver. Built in 1887 and residing in the historic Curtis Park Neighborhood, the second floor was used as a private social club/venue with a dance floor/social space lobby and lounge. Today it remains as one of the few surviving spaces of its kind in the city of Denver.

Raised in the last Golden Era of Music, DeeNo Green is a throwback artist… The Last of The Mohicans if you will. He’s driven by a unique passion and respect for his music. With over 20 years of musical experience under his belt, DeeNo is looking forward to turning that knowledge into his new R&B project entitled ‘LoveProjectReality’. DeeNo has performed both R&B and Hip-Hop for over half of his life and credits his development not just to hard work, but to the artists he’s had the honor of collaborating with over his career. DeeNo doesn’t just want his fans to listen to the music…. He wants them to LIVE the music as if it were a life experience. The truly unique part about DeeNo’s music is that it is almost always derived from personal experiences. Therefore, anytime you listen to one of his songs, youre in fact getting to know the artist himself. DeeNo has performed throughout the country alongside acts such as Busta Rhymes, Nas, The Fugees and Chaka Khan just to name a few. For DeeNo, this isn’t about fame or accolades. ” It’s all about maintaining musical integrity. I love this music so much I would never cut a corner or take a shortcut to make a song. The listener deserves better. Those of you who are discovering this art form for the first time deserve better. I want to bring the level of creative intensity in every song I’m involved in.” If you’re ready for authentic R&B music with just a hint of real Hip-Hop, you’ve come to the right place. DeeNo has arrived!
