METROPOLICKS was FOUR years in the making and boy did we celebrate in a BIG way on Thursday, January 8th, 2015!

January 8, 2015: There were LIVE performances by singer Jami Jackson, a theatrical reading of an excerpt from the book by three actresses, raffles for the very limited print edition of Metropolicks, appearances of Metropolicks models, body painting by Jim Su, complimentary Balls Vodka shots and much, much more! Photos from the event are up on the photos tab of this website

The METROPOLICKS Book Release Party

December 4, 2014: No one has waited as long as we have for this moment, which was FOUR years in the making!

And now we want to CELEBRATE with you, especially those of you who have personally contributed to making Metropolicks happen.

We've booked Toshi's Living Room at the Flatiron Hotel, for the Metropolicks book release party on THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 2015, 6-9pm.

It's THE perfect venue for a very special LIVE performance by Jami Jackson, the singer, songwriter of the songs "Let Love Live" and "Keep Walkin' On"- both were featured in the Metropolicks music videos.

What else can you expect to happen at the event?

Lots of photo ops with this gorgeous venue as a backdrop

The appearance of several of the models from the Metropolicks photo shoot. 

And of course the "normal stuff" you'd expect at a book release party-- like the reading of an excerpt of the book, but you can bet that it will be done with a little twist.

UPDATE: We will be having three actresses doing a theatrical reading from one of the chapters of the book.

AND what would a book release party be without BOOKS?! Metropolicks is currently only available as an ebook, but we will be raffling off a VERY limited number of printed copies to some lucky winners at the event. 

It's going to be a night to remember!

Today we had a celebratory champagne toast, and now we are looking ahead at the next phase of Metropolicks. A second music video is set to be released soon, and our long awaited book release party is also on the horizon.

We are so excited that the book has finally been published and thankful to our early fans- who were so eager to read Metropolicks that they stayed up last night reading it!

Unveiling the cover of METROPOLICKS

SEPTEMBER 24, 2014: We had hoped to be able to include all 15 of the models who were at our July 24th photo shoot, but ultimately, only 10 of the models were included in the photos we choose to use for the cover of Metropolicks. The cover of Metropolicks is meant to conceptually represent the diverse, multi-ethnic, make up of New York City. Hopefully we accomplished that here.

Special thanks to Maggie Law, our photographer and Emily Chen for your graphic design skills and designing the book cover.

July 24th Photo Shoot

On July 24th we had a very productive six-hour plus photo shoot with 15 gorgeous, multi-ethnic female and male models. Special thanks to our photographer Maggie Law who worked tirelessly throughout the entire shoot and to our hair and Kristen Mirabelle and Sara Vinick who did the hair and makeup for all 15 models.

A "behind the scenes video" was also shot that day by Robin C. Adams and we had our first television interview with Donna Drake of Live it Up! about Metropolicks!

Here are just a few of the photos of the shoot captured by Felicia's iPhone that day. 

These photos certainly can't compare with the ones our photographer Maggie actually shot. We can't wait to get working on the photos with our graphics designer.

Toward the end of the shoot, one of the models "lost" his shirt. Too bad we didn't get a shot of that, but our photographer did of course. Guess we'll have to see what we can do with those shots...
