Iowa Summer Jam Recap

Iowa Summer Jam Recap

Thank you thank you thank you for everyone who attended this years Iowa Summer Jam at Hawkeye Downs! The show was amazing from start to finish. We were able to collect several boxes of school supplies for our back to school giveaway. The Squiddy Boiz album was released (now available on all streaming platforms) cameras was flashing, performances were hype, concessions was on point, it was an amazing event from start to finish. Kel was amazing as a host and an MC keeping the crowd entertained and engaged. Mc Backtalk and YC were the perfect way to kick off the show setting the tone, Kai G debuted her first performance on the big stage but looked like a vet, Matt the Tatt brought everyone to see his show from his grandma to his daughter, Riley Mobz showed people he is much more than a videographer and director. Isaac really showed a new side of himself doing one of his rare performances where all the show was all him and no dancers. Two Cold lived up to his name, showed his bars are too cold. Then there was panic, the squiddy boiz were up next and no where to be found. People started looking around as rumors spread that they left on the bus….. and then a light shined to the outside, garage door opened by the stage, and the bus pulled in. Squiddy Boiz caming performing ON DA BUS…. ON THE BUS! The crowd was beyond hyped for their entire set. B on the Beat followed it up and debuted his latest single Get Funky, now available on iTunes. Bandup came in all the way from Dubuque, tearing the stage up for a second year in a row! And Crate…. in his words SHUT IT DOWN! From bringing his manager on stage to perform Mr Reckless to getting the entire T1 Team on stage for various singles including his latest video Cookin feat Lou Kane. This show was one for the books. So once again thank you thank you thank you for attending Iowa Summer Jam. Enjoy the photos taken by Chris Leasure and we hope to see you all next year!
