This past weekend REACH! celebrated their 10th anniversary and the release of their 3rd artist compilation album along with a new clothing line.
REACH is a non-for-profit Artistic Development Organization, and is the brain child of Julliard Graduate Jason Reed, who started REACH 10 years ago in 2005. REACH serves to assist a community in PA with the opportunity to mentor young people through education and the arts.
Mr. Reed’s dance training and background, together with his inner ability to put families and young people at ease during the tedious process of teaching work ethic in the arts, puts him in a class by himself.
The other half and co-founder of REACH is Jordan Coulson. Jordan is also an actor, dancer, hip-hop artist, songwriter and creative director of the energy drink Vegas FUEL. We have worked together for over 8 years and have done countless songs and other productions for various artists.
Jordan, along with Marina Kamen, hosted the REACH 10 Year Anniversary show. Marina and her husband Roy Kamen launched Kamen Entertainment Group in 1987, which is located in NYC’s Times Square.
They specialize in Television, Commercial Advertising for Television and LIVE Events.
Other guests of the show and mentoring panels included professional Wrestler & Television Host of Animal Planet, Eric Young. Styling was Mentored by Mundee Hays who has worked in the industry for the past 15 years. Ms. Hays has worked at The Metropolitan Opera, SNL, and America’s Got Talent, in addition to countless other projects.
The explosive REACH “Fusion98” event mesmerized a sold out show with three action packed acts of music and dance.
A beautiful sight of family fun on a Saturday. Family friendly LIVE Entertainment is rarely executed at this highly professional level and I was thrilled to have been able to work with these talented young artists, bring some information and experience along with producing their latest music release.
It’s always a pleasure working with an amazing program like REACH! along side of Jason Reed and Jordan Coulson.
