The original Bad Boy for Life Sean Combs aka Diddy does Derby? This is not his first visit to the Bluegrass but it will be the media mogul will do his first public party. It’s The Trifecta Celebrity After Party hosted by Diddy at the Louisville Palace, right in the heart of downtown Louisville on Fourth Street. The event will take place on Oaks Night, Friday, May 4th. It will start as soon as former NBA star turned entrepreneur Junior Bridgeman’s Trifecta Gala held at the Omni Hotel begins to wrap up.
Now with Diddy, the “trifecta” is now complete when it comes to the originators in the entertainment industry for Bridgeman’s gala. The artist performing at the gala is none other than Stevie Wonder,. The multi-Grammy Award artist was discovered for his musical talent while singing and playing the harmonica as a young man visually impaired but he clearly gives his fans a vivid picture of imagination and creativity like his hit song “Ribbon in the Skies”.
Another originator who will emcee the event is comedian Arsenio Hall. He elevated late night talk shows helping young actors and artists catapulted their careers but his show was a platform for some of the biggest stars in entertainment from Prince, Eddie Murphy, George Lopez to Paula Abdul just a name a few of the many guests on his show.
The Trifecta Gala will be held on Friday, May 4th in Louisville at the Omni Hotel. It begins at 7:00 pm.
After the gala, its Diddy for the Celebrity After-Party at the Louisville Palace. The party begins at 11:00 pm and ends at 4:00 am. There will be two options based on how close you want to get to the celebrities. There’s a VIP area. You can party in those areas. There’s also a first level admission that gets you into the party but no access to the level where you can see the Derby guests up close.
To proceeds will benefit the Bridgeman Charitable Foundations. To purchase tickets both events you need to go to their website www.trifectagala.com.

His “Trap Soul” album took the music industry by storm. Now, Louisville native and Grammy nominated artist Bryson Tiller announces his “Set It Off” tour and of course his hometown is on the list.
Fans will see Bryson on Saturday, September 16 at the KFC Yum! Center as part of his North American tour. Metro Boomin and R&B singer H.E.R. will open the show.
His new album “True to Self” is already getting rave reviews and maybe ranked of No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. He surprised fans by releasing it on May 26th about a month earlier than its anticipated date.
I will monitor that ranking when it comes out this Sunday, June 4. This is only Bryson’s aka Pen Griffey’s second album. The RCA artist has been singing and rapping since his high school days at Iroquois High and in 2014 his single “Don’t” became a hit thanks to the internet and his new found followers. Artists like Drake and Timbaland vibed on Tiller’s sound and that’s what got labels interested.
Now, he’s had hits like “Sorry Not Sorry”, “Exchange” and his current hit “Somethin Tells Me”.
Bryson is already collecting plenty of hardware for his trophy case. In 2016, he won Best new artist, Best R& B/Pop artist at the BET Awards. He also won Best New R & B artist at the iHeart Radio Music Awards this year. His nominations have been adding up too from the Grammy Awards to the Billboard Music Awards.
The tour kicks off on June 23rd in Los Angeles in the Staple Center.
Tickets for the September 16th show in Louisville start at $39.50. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
