Bennie!! This is Charity. Thanks for all that you did for my birthday
You stayed rocking out that old spot. Keep it up
CIAA was too fun. still recovering lol
Great Time when I was in town!! Keep it up
We came in from out of town, and Bennie really looked out for me and my girls. The stage setting at that club in Charlotte was perfect. Great site, by the way!
S/o to BGray the best promoter in Charlotte hands down. He definitely knows how to make your birthday and party experience special
Hott site Bennie 😍😍
Bennie, Vanity is beautiful... You are my favorite and the finest promoter. Keep it up!!
Bangin party when I came thru Charlotte
wasn't planning on doing anything for New Years, but decided to drive to Charlotte from Ohio, since my family lives in Charlotte and I didn't want to be lonely. Came to The Fire Water and had a BALLL!! Great Party Bennie. That's the way you bring in the New Years. NOt to mention the DJ was on point!
Attended the NYE 2014 party at Firewater. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Purchased ticket that had a start time of 9:30pm. Friends and I arrived at 9:35pm ready to get out NYE party on...only to find the DJ just arriving to setup. The restaurant was still seating guest and taking food orders. We asked the staff about the NYE party and no one had any information because the host(s) of the party were nowhere to be found. We sat at the bar waiting for someone from the promoter(s) side for the event to acknowledge us....but, no one did. We finally asked a young lady what was going on...she did not have a clue. WHAT A WAY TO END A NEW YEAR. Very poor service by the Promoter(s). When the Promoter staff fianlly arrived around 10pm...they all seemed confused about the flow of the party. I ended up leaving...this was not a way I wanted to bring in my New Year. Your advertisement also mentioned a dress code....but, I guess it was more about the money because guys had on sports caps/and athletic type clothing.. Very inappropriate for a NYE event. What a waste of my money. Felt more a sports bar. If you advertise a start time at 9:30pm.....have your events in the future up and ready to go when guest arrive. It's such a disappointment when promotors don't have their stuff together.
We apologize that the New Years Eve event was not what you would've hoped for. Due to the location also being a full-time dine-in restaurant, we deemed the opportunity to arrive before 10 as an amenity, given that doors open at 9:30, however the event was not to start until 10pm. Unlike a club, the restaurant had to respect the patrons dining for New Years, as that is there prime focus of business. There was a dress code, however the dress code didn't prohibit one from entering on this given night, as the dress code was enforced by having the particular customer pay a fee for being out of dress code. Please email email@example.com , as we would like to communicate with you and make the situation better for you and any other future experiences.
I too was disappointed. The fact that it did not start on time was the starting point for me. However, once I decided I was not going to stay at the venue, I attempted to give a gentleman that was in line the ticket I purchased and was told I could not, he had to pay. My problem with that was the money was still paid and I was told I could not be refunded. So, since I was not staying and the money wasn’t going to be refunded – why couldn’t this gentleman use a ticket that was paid for? Lastly, once told that, the young lady insisted on marking me off the list as attending, yet I wasn't staying. I got okay with her not allowing the guy to use the ticket, but if she was gonna mark me off as attending, why couldn’t the guy use the ticket if I was clearly leaving? Please help me understand. I know it’s now water under the bridge, but for me, I am hoping to better understand for when I decide to attend future venues such as this. Respectfully!
Our apologies for the starting point discrepancy. I apologize, but you would be unable to experience an event, then decide to provide your ticket to another. If you provided prior to experiencing the event, than that is fine, but at that time, we were unable to account for 2 customers off of 1 ticket. As far as refunds, the event was non-refundable. As far as being marked off the list, was so that someone would not use your name as the night continued, and the gentlemen was not allowed to use your ticket, as you had used your ticket and experienced the event. We apologize if you didn't enjoy the entertainment, but that experience of a party or show can't be recycled to another party. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as we'd love to speak with you and possibly provide a better understanding of the situation.
THE LAST 2 COMMENTS ARE unbelievable. But, I guess each person will have there own experience. We flew up from Florida, because we see your promotions on your social networks. We HAD A BALL FOR NEW YEARS. The DJ was on point with his mixture of different flows of music. The food was great. That spot fire and ice will be great for you to do when it warms up, unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy the outside weather. THANKS AGAIN, AND WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK FOR CIAA.
CONGRATULATIONS ON WINNING QUEEN CITY'S PROMOTER OF THE YEAR - YOU DESERVED IT!!!
We appreciate the concert that you brought thru to VA. the city needed that, b/c we've been too consumed by this modern day stuff which isn't considered hip hop. THANKS AGAIN FOR BRINGING US MOBB DEEP!!!! KEEP GRINDING HOMIE
attended Teyana Taylor's party at Caviar. 1 thing I like about your events, especially your celebrity events is that the celebrity always interact well with the crowd. Thanks for the opportunity. Congratulations on winning the promoter of the year. Nobody provides like you provide.
Just saw your post. Glad that you care about what WE want! Continue to bring the folks that folks aren't bringing. I get tired of seeing the same people every other week. Thanks again for looking out for our bus at Caviar on Saturday. We owe you. Thought you was gonna ride with us lol

We flew in to Charlotte just to come to your event. FINALLY THE 1ST NON RATCHET SPOT LOL
Have they made you mayor yet lol. republic on saturdays!!!!!!!!!
NC on ya back, homie
Went to the block party last night and at 1 o'clock the announced the club is now closed. The were rushing people to leave with no explanations. After buying drinks for friends 3 minutes prior to this event, and my friends were at the door they were not letting them in. One security guard told me to get them, left my drinks, and when I went out, they refused to let us back inside.
I WILL NEVER ATTEND ANOTHER B party again and I hope that people readings this pay close attention to what I am about to say. People should not be allowed to rob tickets buyers of there experience. There were atleast 50 people outside and they offered no explaination to why. Very unprofessional promoters, that got paid fir nothing.
It shocks me to have you say that there were 50+ people outside of an event that accommodated more than attended. However, I apologize for your experience, and have sought after the security personnel making the statements about the event ending early. Please advise, as we (the organization, not the 'venue') would like to personally reach out to you, and accommodate you, if willing, in a heightened experience. Thanks for your comment, as I am glad to see another way to improve.
