Here’s a quick recap of the Absolute Greyhound event I played last month with MSTRKRFT at The Hoxton in Toronto!
On Friday, April 13 we lost a fellow teammate at The 194 Group. Our guitarist, the legendary Sy Sylver, passed on and left us for a better place.. Sy was a unique individual.. Not only was he an incredible talent, but more importantly he was a wonderful human being. A rockstar in his own right, Sy connected with audiences of all backgrounds and musical spectrums from around the world. His passion and love for music shined through his electrifying and energetic performances. Sy’s gift was unique and he was an originator in the field of Electronic Dance Music, adding an element that people had never witnessed before. His gift found him performing across the globe, from Dubai to Ibiza, sharing the stage with the likes of Tiesto, DJ AM, Kaskade, and Paul Oakenfold. In an industry full of fake personalities and inflated egos, Sy Sylver was one of the most genuine, laid back, and humble people I have ever met.. Simon Benlolo aka Sy Sylver, you were a pleasure to work alongside and you will be missed dearly my friend..

Performers included 9th Wonder & Phonte, Zaki Ibrahim, Raekwon & JD Era, Rich Kidd, Kid Capri and Rakim, Freedom Writers, and many more..
It was definitely a historic evening.. Let me know your thoughts!

TEDxToronto is the largest TEDx conference for Toronto, Canada.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, it brings together the city’s foremost thought leaders, change makers and everyday people from each discipline and challenges them to deliver powerful, unforgettable and unique TEDxTalks.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
