Jeff Ho, (Dogtown & Z-Boys surf skate legend), Brian Brannon (lead singer of JFA, skateboarding and punk rock lifer), Christian Hosoi (Skateboarding Hall of Fame legend), and Juice Dan Levy (Juice Magazine Editor) chopped it up in front of an enthusiastic crowd to kick off 3rd Fridays with an episode of our new live on location show, Juice Talks.
The night began with Jeff Ho hand painting a limited number of custom Juice/Jeff Ho collaboration t-shirts for some lucky early attendees (legendary). Then it was a full celebration with a musical set by Brian Brannon and the Snapback Gnarlers led by none other than Brian Brannon with Bobby Abarca on the bass and Craig Skater on percussion. Special guest DJ, house producer, L.A. native, and FA World Entertainment’s Sage Caswell took the reins with his own unique brand of enigmatic vibes to end the night’s celebration.
