Igloo Two Year Anniversary Party

Igloo Two Year Anniversary Party

Saturday, Oct 12

Igloo Music was formed by hustlers Brandon Chase and Paul Kuenzi. Since its creation in 2011, the two have been starting new events, exploring different venues and showcasing local talent for both Igloo’s loyal following and the newbies brought along presumably by a frequenter. Chase was brought into the scene in the 1990s, at warehouse raves in Toronto. After moving there in 1996, his vinyl collection began to grow; soon, he was DJing under the moniker LEO. After teaming up with E Network in 1998 he began throwing events. The Toronto experience created his “hunger for intimate, sexy, unique vibes,” he says. He said he teamed up with Kuenzi to “better serve Buffalo’s house music scene and educate the up-and-coming group of party go-ers on what a true scene should look like.” With the partnership, they made a conscious decision that their approach to the party-throwing lifestyle would be different; there would be variance and newness to the locations and the genres. The duo became a trio when John Sullivan joined the team in late 2013. It is now October, and Igloo will be celebrating its 2-year anniversary Saturday (Oct 12) at the new hot-spot bar, The Gypsy Parlor. The night will include Chase and Kuenzi back-to-back, Nate Howell, Zamboni Driver, and Drumsound Blvd. —alicia greco
