After many years of being a huge fan of The Foreign Exchange, I finally had the opportunity to see them perform in Detroit with Sy Smith & Zo last night! My expectations for the show were quite high & they were exceeded. The crowd was super hype, the music was EVERY single thing, Phontae clowned on the stage & set the crowd off with a rendition of “It’s So Cold in the D” & Sy Smith was just WOW! Making it even better was that I got to enjoy some of my favorite music, laughs & dancing with friends.
I’m happy that they performed at the Magic Stick because it’s a more intimate venue & you can usually interact with the performers after the show. In this case, I was able to talk with Nicolay who literally gave me the shirt off of his back while he was on stage when the show wrapped. I chatted up Sy Smith who has wonderful presence. Even got a little groupie purchasing going on & copped this t-shirt. So happy they had husky sizes!
It was a GREAT night & thanks to my peeps at Soulbounce, I was able to shoot the show, so you have to see the rest of the shots here because. They are pretty awesome. I’m just saying.
