The mix of songs were also quite interesting from a house version of Van Halen's "Jump" to Souljah Boy Tell Em's "Souljah Boy."
NOTE: Also in the house were Precision's Rob Kirk, Foxy 95 personality Lon Love, Singlesvibe's Joe Jennings and Tony Russell, Stress Free Fridays Mark Anthony Jones, Ray Hills Beer's Stephen Bruce, Carlton Mitchell, Stephanie and Mike Persons, Kathy Ivy and Sally Jackson to name a few. This was a great venue! Very roomy. A dark mood lighting with blue neon lighting in VIP. The food was OK (the desserts were delectable!) but the perk was that the drinks at this party were free.
