A Merry Melody Recap




Los Angeles, CA. - December 15th, 2018. Hosted by PitStop Musicians,

On the evening of December 15th, PitStop hosted its Annual Holiday Showcase. The evening was filled with harmony, wonder and the blossoming of new creative collaborations.

Hosted by Nona, with a soundscape provided by DJ Ichi, the glowing LED lit tables and benches were only a dash of the mystique floating in the room that evening.

Patrique Fortson was the Guest of Honor for the evening, surprising all of us, including the PitStop team & the house band, when he brought four members of this season’s The Voice to join him up on stage one by one each riffing and singing a verse of “Tennessee Whiskey”. This left the entire audience, including the bartender on the farthest end of the room, with chills up their spine. Each of the notes sung by Patrique and his friends seemed like tiny sparkling gifts from heaven.

The night was filled with gorgeous holiday tunes and originals from Casey Cook, Lauren Dair and Taylor Alexander. Carrie Taylor & Wallace Joseph Jr. shared their wisdom on navigating the industry and the importance of knowing your rights when it comes to copyrighting and intellectual property.

Special thanks to each and every musician and creative content collaborator behind the scenes and on the stage. PitStop’s mission is exactly what took place the evening of the 14th and 15th. The entire house band was found on the App and it warmed our heart to watch connections be made.
