New York, NY (February 1, 2011): I Octane completed a media blitz last week in New York City, wooing the local media personalities and wowing reggae fans with his charismatic high-energy performances just days ahead of his impending “My Life” Tour.
Last week’s promotional tour commenced with a press conference and “meet and greet” on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 6:30 pm. Hosted by New York City eatery, Negril Village Restaurant, the press conference was moderated by Pat McKay of Sirius Satellite Radio. Though a snowstorm loomed over Manhattan, media houses and fans packed the venue where I-Octane posed for photographs and signed autographs. The
singjay surprised those in attendance with an impromptu performance of hit singles “My Life,” “Lose A Friend,” “No Love Inna Them” and even serenaded Pat McKay with “Everytime You Touch Me.” The inclement weather postponed a scheduled performance at Waah Gwaan Wednesdays at Temptations Night Club in Brooklyn later that night to Wednesday, February 9, 2011.
On Thursday, January 27th, I-Octane braved the cold weather, kick starting his day with an interview on Sirius Satellite Radio. He then did a blizzard of interviews which included Caribbean Billboard Radio with host Chip Smith, Road Block Radio with Banky Hype, Irie Jam Radio with DJ Roy, Reggae Spin with Keveon, Hot 97 Boston with VOG and DJ Kool, E2onair with Judith Kitson and Linkup Radio with DJ Kevin Crown.
On Saturday, January 29th I-Octane hosted Upscale Crowd’s “Fantasy Saturdays” at Rebel NYC where he performed “My Life,” “No Love Inna Dem” and “Lose A Friend” for partygoers.
I-Octane rounded out the weekend with interviews on 105.1FM with DJ Norie and 107.5 FM’s Caribbean Fever with Dahved Levy on Sunday, January 30, 2011. Additionally, the singer had a photo shoot with celebrity photographer Stephanie Foxx. I-Octane was pleased with the New York media’s reception during his whirlwind tour.
“I am very happy with the turn out of the media tour – NY treated me well. I look forward to returning to do shows in Brooklyn and Manhattan. I am thankful to all the radio personalities who interviewed me, it was truly a pleasure. To my team, thanks for now making my life easy like 1-2-3.”
Now back in Jamaica, I-Octane is prepping for his “My Life” tour, which will kick off on Friday February 4, 2011 with a performance in Dallas, Texas. He will return to New York on Monday, February 7, 2011 for a performance at Rock With Squeeze at SOBs, followed by gigs at Waah Gwaan Wednesdays at Temptations Night Club in Brooklyn, Newark, New Jersey and then back to Dallas, Texas.
Other dates of the “My Life” tour have been confirmed in Arcata, Fairfax, and in Long Beach, California, Miami, Fla. , Minneapolis, Minnesota, Bridgeport, CT, Springfield, Mass. And Washington DC
