GILBERT the Peach
@gilbertthepeach- "As a musician, I can say I have never been in a more caring and open community than that of the music/art community. I’ve always loved the idea of being able to spread my message to others in the form of music. Performing on stage is one of the best ways to do so. I hope to inspire others to do the same."
@Iamdahshanae- "So I was invited to close the show by Kali and she told me about you mostly planning an art event and she invited me on which I was very much excited I said yes! I like the venue is the most perfect venue like it's so perfect specifically for acoustic which is my genre I love the energy you know so it was just a yes for me to perform just because I love the venue I love Kali I love you and I just love music so everything just it felt perfect. I took a long break from performing its been years since my first performance and thanks to Kira inviting inspired me to want to do a show it was honestly really really fun to just be up there and it felt natural"
@officialjmusiq- "I enjoy being a creator and wanted to be around people that are creative and create show love and support to people in the black community and other creatives as well."

@dapperboolery - "The major thing that inspired me to sell my art was while I'd be out at lounges and bars painting; the first few that I'd say started my 'collection' was bought by the bartenders at Jessie's Lounge who have quickly become good friends. From that spot. it tumbled into the local music community who also with a wealth of enthusiasm supported me. I couldn't thank them enough in just one life."
@Tylertobell94 - "I was told about the event through my friend so I gave it shot,
I enjoyed the vibe, art, and the people."
@Venediblesweets.com -"Three things I enjoyed about the event were the positive energy people had, the music difference, and lastly would be the food option."
@sc_1shy- "At the event I enjoyed being able to interact with folks who I've never met before and talk about collaborating I also enjoyed how everything was set up as soon as you walk in you see all these different art portraits plus there was food I didn't get any sadly but I enjoyed that the option was there."
