“Adventures in Brew” Chooses Crowdfunding Platform to Cast Off On a Beer-Centric Road Trip to Craft Breweries

“Adventures in Brew” is partnering with Black Dog Promotions in a fundraising campaign that will take the beer show across America.

Chandler, AZ/Denver, CO, January 15, 2014 - The hit web show “Adventures in Brew” has been a crowd favorite ever since it hit the air in early 2013. James Swann is the host and beer expert behind “Adventures in Brew” and his decades of beer knowledge and beer brewing experience encompass a love of beer that began back in England where Swann grew up. “I’ve grown up working in bars, restaurants and pubs all my life,” stated Swann. His vast experience in brewing will undoubtedly catapult “Adventures in Brew” to the head of the class of special interest shows.

Instead of going with Kickstarter, Adventures in Brew chose the platform to launch their fundraising campaign. “The crowdfunding is like Kickstarter, but it’s only focused on the craft beer industry, so this is really exciting,” said Swann. “When we’re on the road, we’ll have the chance to visit craft breweries all over and discover what makes them special, we’ll conduct interviews, play beer challenge games and get to know brew masters from across the country.”

“Adventures in Brew” has partnered with Black Dog Promotions and its CEO and Founder, Scott Kelly for marketing and public relations to launch the show on a national basis and get it out on the road. Kelly said, “Viewers and fans have already been very receptive to ‘Adventures in Brew.’ Not only is it educational, but it’s a completely fun romp, from start to finish. James Swann is likeable and so knowledgeable about beer, that we expect that audiences will always want to tune in to see what kind of craziness is taking place. We feel that is the perfect place to kick off our crowdfunding endeavors.”

The part of the country where the crowdfunding comes from is where the funds will be spent. “For instance, if a bunch of people in a particular area of Colorado get together and fund, we’ll be off to Colorado to do the show,” Swann stated. “Personally, I would lean towards San Diego and moving up to Orange County and around Denver Colorado, but it’s really up to those people who help fund the show. If they decide we should be in Florida, then that’s where we’ll go.” Travel expenses and a production crew will all be specific expenses paid for by crowdfunding money. “It’s going to be a blast and everywhere that we’ve done a show so far; the feedback has been phenomenal. has become the “de facto” standard for craft beer crowdfunding ever since USA TODAY ran an article in August 2012, touting the company as “the first-ever crowdfunding site designed specifically for craft beer entrepreneurs.” CrowdBrewed was created to provide a secure, transparent platform for companies to obtain the financing they need to grow their businesses.

Nigerian Super Star Dilly Dante Releases New Dance Hall Hit

Dilly Dante, in collaboration with Okaome, revs up the Nigerian music industry with the release of “Rupepe.”

London, UK, January 15, 2014 - Over the years, African music has beautifully evolved into a cultural treasure that can be enjoyed worldwide. Dilly Dante, who hails from Enugu State Nigeria, has added his own flavour of authentic African music to the genre with the introduction of his new track, “Rupepe.”

Dilly Dante was signed on by Okaome Records recently, to bring his complex and upbeat music to audiences across the world. His song title, “Rupepe,” literally translates to mean, “the movement of the lower body.” “There really isn’t a more apt name for this song. Every time I hear it, I can’t help but start moving and singing along. Dilly Dante is one of the best discoveries in the African music scene that I’ve seen in a long time,” said Dante’s manager at Okaome Records.

Rupepe was produced by NERUZ. The song comes with an amazing video by a fast-rising music director /editor, Sir Russell 9ja Knight, who produces highly popular films in Nigeria. Sir Russell has a unique way of translating music to video art. In the reviews of the video created for Dante, it was clearly noted that Sir Russell is indeed a very good cinematographer. “It was an honour to work with such an esteemed leader in the Nigerian film industry. His talent shows in the video, as it does in everything he works on,” said Dilly Dante when asked about his experience working with Sir Russell.

This Nigerian music style that is typically referred to as Rupepe has true African heritage, and keeps listeners dancing with its fun percussion and rhythm. Dilly Dante’s version of Rupepe is a great song, and the video should not be missed by fans.

Not only does the video include Dante and his impressive vocal talents, but it also features one of Nigeria's finest song writers and singers, Blackfacenaija, who is a former member of the group Plantashumboiz, consisting of 2 Face Idibia and Face.

Also included in the team that worked to create this song is Honeyplu, a beautiful young performer who has amazing lyrical content and vocal range
