Last Thursday night I had the chance to go to a party hosted at the Redwood Room at the Clift Hotel in downtown San Franciso. It’s a gorgeous bar that is paneled from floor to ceiling with wood from a single redwood tree, and the original art deco chandeleirs and sconces from 1933 still adorning the walls and ceilings. As a cool contrast from the richness of the wood there are digital frames projecting portraits of people with the eyes that follow you throughout the room.

The night was glamourous and luxurious, and hence, was a great spot for people-watching. But even with all of the eye candy, we were there for the music. We all know I have a thing for a good DJ, but I also love the symphony and I try to go a few times a year. On this night Inka 1 and violinist Paul Dateh came to perform a joint set of smooth hip-hop beats accompanied by the classical sounds of the violin. It was bananas! When they transitioned into Ghostface Killah’sCherchez la Ghost oh my god, I was in heaven…two of my favorite musical genres rolled into one. Add a glass or two of bubbly and there’s the cherry on top. It was a great night.

Check out the video below of the guys in the studio, it really is great stuff.
