The tour is over, Soulico’s back in Israel and I’m back to sitting at my desk in JDub World Headquarters. Faces were rocked off, people fainted and everyone danced their asses off. Soulico arrived in the US ready to party and those who attended were not dissapointed. From performing with Ceci Bastida in LA and MC Zulu in Chicago to rocking a packed costumed crowd in Denver, partying with Emory Students in Atlanta, playing late into the night in Miami and watching the Mercury Lounge in New York get down, the tour was incredible. Thanks to all that came out, we had an amazing time sharing this music with you and hope you had as good a time as we did.
Below is some more great video from the tour.
