In celebration of their 30th Anniversary, Pure Space management company West Coast Event Productions, Inc. took a Magic Carpet Ride with the legendary John Kay & Steppenwolf, who performed a live concert at Pure Space last Friday, April 15.
Over 500 clients, vendors and friends were invited to kick-off the year-long celebration with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a private concert to commemorate the theme “Still Rockin’ After 30 Years.” Pure Space was transformed into a concert hall for the evening, and was completely carpeted and draped-off for sound and privacy. The venue featured a full stage, state-of-the-art JBL VERTEC sound system, and a custom designed light show with over 125 lighting fixtures and 14 moving intelligent lighting fixtures. Projected on an oversized screen behind the stage, a video show accompanied the band’s performance, and was designed and produced by John Kay’s 30-year veteran member and co-songwriter Mike Wilk (who recently joined the WCEP production team full-time).
In the “Born to Be Wild” spirit, Paparazzi Tonight set up a photo booth where guests posed on a Harley motorcycle. Thanks to all of those who joined us for the celebration!
“I’ve been with John Kay for many years now, and this is the best gig I’ve ever played with John Kay and Steppenwolf!” – Gary Link, Steppenwolf Bass Player
