  1. Hello, I have a very talented youth group whom are looking to perform at different events for promotion. We are not looking to receive any money, but would love to perform at one of your summer events for some exposure. My kids go by the name of the P-City All Stars; being that they come from Portsmouth, VA. The group raps about their life growing up & wanting to be successful. I express to them the importance of being positive role model & not just a products of their environment. The kids range from the ages of 13-18 years old. I know that sometimes during the summer you have teen events & I would love for you to consider having my kids perform at such an event. Please take my request into consideration. You can contact me via email or by phone 757-392-6556. I would love to send you a sample of their music. Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
