(San Francisco, California – July 27, 2011) During the second weekend in August, Bay Areaâ€™s most renowned urban promotions and events production company Ankh Marketing will kick off their 7th year anniversary celebration in San Francisco with a series of exclusive events boasting a line up of A-list artists and a bevy of special guests. On Friday, August 12th, Ankh will present a special DJ set spun by Universal/Motown recording artist Erykah Badu – under her DJ moniker Lo Down Loretta Brown – at San Franciscoâ€™s top live music venue Mezzanine. On Saturday, August 13th, Ankh continues the celebration with yet another DJ set by cultural critic/recording artist/drummer Questlove at Public Works located in San Franciscoâ€™s Mission District.
â€œWeâ€™re planning on having some pretty special guests. Itâ€™s going to be a unique experience,â€ says Ankh Marketingâ€™s co-founder Kamel Jacot-Bell. â€œSeven is a very significant number for various reasons. We wanted to celebrate our 7th year anniversary with artists that symbolize Ankh Marketingâ€™s mission and pull off some fun events simultaneously.â€ Jacot-Bell notes that selecting the headliners for Ankh Marketingâ€™s anniversary weekend events was simply a matter of calling on old friends. â€œErykah Badu and Questlove are two artists that strongly represent our brand within the music community,â€ he says. â€œWeâ€™ve done events with Questlove ever since he started his DJ career. Erykahâ€™s done some of our biggest concerts in the Bay Area. The way she represents the ankh is parallel to that of our company.â€
