Vivid Entertainment’s new Miami gentlemen’s club, “Vivid Live,” is set to open Sept. 13 hosted by realty TV “Teen Mom” and new adult performer Sydney Leathers.
Located at 7020 NW 72nd Avenue, the adult club sits on 2.5 acres near the Palmetto Expressway close to Miami International Airport.
The grand opening gets underway at 5 p.m. with a complimentary seafood feast and happy hour, and continues with music and entertainment until 5 a.m.
Along with Leathers, Myla Sinanaj, former girlfriend of NBA’s Kris Humphries now starring in her own Vivid Celebvideo, “Myla Sinanaj: The Anti Kim,” will be hosting on Sept. 14. Also on tap that night is the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Canelo Alvarez championship-boxing match to be screened on three 20 ft. tall projector screens and 40 plasma TVs.
The weekend open-to-the-public launch parties will be preceded on Sept. 12 by an invitation-only hospitality industry, VIP and press event hosted by adult star Tera Patrick.
Vivid said a group of local real estate professionals invested more than $10 million in the creation of the venue, licensing its name from Vivid Entertainment as part of the company’s new nightclub branding division.
Originally planned as “Club WET,” the owners took the opportunity to work with Vivid when they heard the name was available to be licensed.
The Vivid Girls, past and present, will appear regularly at Vivid Live, along with other dancers. The 30,000 square foot club features three separate entertainment rooms with 40 foot ceilings; a Vivid Ultra Lounge with 22 private VIP suites; four “extra-exclusive” luxury sky suites; separate VIP bachelor party and bottle service areas and a state-of-the-art sound and light system.
In addition to gourmet meals, there will be a complimentary grand buffet every Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Highlights include Thursday’s “churrascaria” style buffet with an array of carved meats and complimentary Friday seafood feast.
Platinum, gold, silver and black memberships that include access to the Vivid Ultra Lounge are available, as well as complimentary limousine service for VIP guests.
“Vivid Live is a jewel in our coast-to-coast gentlemen’s club lineup,” Steven Hirsch, co-founder and chairman of Vivid Entertainment said. “The grand opening party is just the start of festivities at what is sure to become one of the great Florida party destinations.”
The long awaited “JUICE” mixtape by DJ GQ officially dropped this week and is hosted by Mike Posner. The delay for this mixtape was due to his busy schedule as a mixer with Clear Channel’s Y100 (TOP CHR) in Miami.

Scion A/V is back at it in 2011 with this vintage-sounding HI NRG jam by Corinne. “Dream A Little Dream” is like stepping into a time machine and going back to Miami circa 1991, only without the sweaty palms and hairy chests beneath white blazers. Remixes by Mugwump, Runaway, and Midnight keep it grounded in of-the-moment electro.

Gargamel Music, Inc. is extremely pleased to confirm that international Reggae star Buju Banton will make his long-awaited return to the stage at the highly anticipated Before The Dawn Concert taking place in South Florida during Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend. Banton, who is currently out on bail and awaiting retrial in February, has not performed live in over a year.
Produced by Rocker’s Island Entertainment, the Buju Banton & Friends Before The Dawn Concert will also feature performances by some of Jamaican music’s elite: Stephen Marley, Wayne Wonder, Sly & Robbie, Gramps Morgan, Shaggy and Freddie McGregor, with even more names to be announced in the next few weeks.
“The concept is to reunite with the fans and thank them personally for the tremendous level of support they have shown to me during these turbulent times,” explains Buju. “I look forward to touching the stage once more and coming together with the masses in a spirit of togetherness, harmony, unification and solidarity.”
The Buju Banton & Friends Before The Dawn Concert is set for Sunday, January 16 at Bayfront Park Amphitheater in downtown Miami from 4:00pm – 10:00pm. For more information log on to www.BUJULIVE.com
Gargamel Music, Inc. is pleased to announce that Reggae superstar Buju Banton’s prophetic new album, Before The Dawn is in stores and online in North America today. While the release date for the UK and France is set for next Monday, October 4, the album will be available in the rest of Europe this Friday, October 1.
The ninth studio album by the international music icon, Before The Dawn boasts 10 powerful tracks that comprise some of the most powerful songs written by Banton since his professional entry into the music business over twenty years ago. In an exclusive interview featured in the new issue ofHip-Hop Weekly magazine, Buju says, “All the songs on this album were written before I and I found I self in this current situation, yet they all speak profoundly to what I and I am going through right now… You might can lock the flesh but you can never lock the spirit of Rasta.” The album has already catapulted to the #2 position on iTunes’ Top Reggae Albums Chart.
Recorded at Banton’s own Gargamel Music studio in Kingston, Jamaica, Before The Dawn literally pierces the soul with traditional roots on the track “Do Good,”classic rock on the tune “No Smoking At All,” and heartfelt Reggae on the especially potent “Battered & Bruised.” The album’s unofficial anthem, “Innocent”strikes a highly personal chord that will resonate deeply with longtime fans.
Despite his current incarceration, Buju was heavily involved in putting together this latest offering – from choosing the final track listing and laboring over the phone with the producers and engineers to get the mixes just right, to conceptualizing the project’s distinguished packaging. Physical copies of the album contain a special note written from inside the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater, Florida, where he has been housed since January.
Buju Banton finally had his day in court when the trial, which had been riddled with delays, kicked off on Monday, September 20, in Tampa, Florida. An esteemed team of federal criminal defense attorneys, led by David Oscar Markus of Markus & Markus Law, represented the four time Grammy-nominated artist. After four days of testimony and 15 hours of deliberation by a 12 person jury, the Honorable Judge James Moody declared a mistrial. The case will be retried this December. In the meantime, Mr. Markus has filed a motion for bond in an attempt to spring Banton out of jail while he awaits his new trial. A hearing on the motion has already been set for Wednesday, October 6.
