“It’s something that Amarillo has never seen, and if you’ve been to several other cities, it’s kind of a growing trend across the country that mixes a bit of comedy with good music, great R&B music and our motto is ‘Why not? Why not Amarillo?’ said Kevin Wiley, co-founder of Nfinity Entertainment.
The event was created after attending a concert in Austin produced by RB Entertainment, and also suffered the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, said Joshua Gilmore, co-founder of Nfinity Entertainment.
Gilmore and his uncle, Wiley, decided there was a need for love, laughter, and friendship in Amarillo and created the festival with that theme in mind.
“It brings a certain positivity to the city. We faced COVID, a lot of hardship, people missed a lot. It just brings happiness, positivity, love, “he added.” A great atmosphere for people, and something to look forward to, just to forget everything, come have fun, relax and have fun. ”
The event features multi-double platinum artist Ginuwine, known for their hits “Pony” and “Differences”; multi-platinum band Dru Hill known for their hits “In My Bed” and “Thong Song”; and platinum artist Baby Bash known for his hits “Suga Suga” and “Cyclone”.
“I am truly honored and humbled to be included in an evening that will help bring entertainment and happiness to your city, especially with the tribulations we have all endured in this pandemic,” Ginuwine said in a press release. . “Being a part of something new and exciting for your city is amazing! I am excited and ready to give you a show you will remember. “
Ginuwine has been in the entertainment industry for over 25 years and this will be his first visit to Amarillo.
“The only thing I love about visiting different cities and states is the opportunity to experience the environment of my fans and supporters. With this event, it will be my first visit to Amarillo, so I have can’t wait to see the smiling, dancing and singing faces because we have a great show, ”he added. “Weather permitting, I hope I have the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of your city. I am really looking forward to my visit! I know this is the first time, but I hope it is the start of many others. Thank you, Amarillo! “
The festival should be organized by Dj Element and comedian Big Buddha.
An artist from San Antonio will also be featured along with local artists to be announced at a later date.
According to Wiley, the event will also feature food trucks and a red carpet photoshoot. Participants can also expect freebies and cash prizes, including a prize for the best dressed couple.
“We’re just trying to bring something cool to the city, in an intimate setting where there’s lots of love in the air and lots of laughs, we think it’s the perfect ingredient to bring people together.” , Wiley said.
Gilmore and Wiley both said they hope to make it an annual event for Amarillo and are already planning Love, Laughter and Friends Fest next year.
