This past Sunday June 19th Father Day, 100.3 The Beat/Radio One and Boost Mobile presented the Super Jam Concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ.
Mitchell and Ness Nostalgia Co. were on hand as Sponsors of the exclusive Black Box VIP Room.
With 100.3 the Beat on air DJ personality Kendra G hosted live interviews with the Artist as they came off stage from their electrifying performances. After which each artist took time out to meet and greet with fans and take photos.
It was obvious from each artist’s entrance of their attention being drawn to the abundant and colorful layout of Mitchell and Ness Apparel, Authentics and Headwear. The Mitchell and Ness gifting suite was teeming with this summers hottest looks in tees, NBA Jerseys, and the hottest item in streetwear Snapbacks.
The Event Team for Mitchell and Ness; GM-Zaid Hamid, ASM-Aaron Noel, FEM-Mabinty Gblah, Will Warren, Tyler Schilling & Jhared Brown, wear all clad in various Authentic Jerseys giving further enticement to artists and fans alike.
Once the performers finally made it to the Mitchell and Ness booth they began looking through the racks as though they were in our Flagship Store, choosing various items for color or team/city affiliation.
R&B Singer Olivia was the first performer to come through the Black Box, she was surprisingly excited to see our booth and promptly requested anything Boston Celtics. We actually had newly released Dennis Johnson in a size 36(S), which she loved along with a Ladies green Boston Celtics Vintage Tee. We eagerly look forward to seeing Olivia rocking that Celtics Jersey, hopefully in her next Video.
R&B sensation Lloyd made a stop in the Black Box VIP Room amid a room full of young screaming girls. Once he made it to our table he told the us that he was a frequent customer and did most of his shopping online, until he spotted a M&N Flagship Store exclusive Jordan 98 All Star Jersey in his size. He said he would stop by the store in the very near future to see what else we have that may not be available online.
Next after a stirring performance of hits from her New Album “No Boy Allowed” Keri Hilson entered the room to cheers and screams of awaiting fans. She was a stunning beauty who turned out a big Atlanta Hawks fan being her home town team (Decatur). She selected an ATL Hawks Vintage tees shirt and an ATL Flames (NHL) Snapback hat. Ms. Hilson was very gracious of the gifting suite and took multiple pictures with the staff and signed autographs.
Several other performers, artists and personalities passed through the VIP room including Ace Hood with the smash single “Hustle Hard”, who chose the 98 Pippen Jersey and a few snapbacks.
R&B Artist Jeremih came through the gifting suite and signed our canvas bag and took pics. He picked up a Newly released NJ Nets Drazin Petrovic Jersey, and two snapback hats.
The Atlanta’s newest rap group Travis Porter, who although sounds like one folk singer, turned out to be crew of about 10 people not including dancers, erupted through the Gifting Suite, selecting oogling over snapbacks and jerseys. The group turned out to be only 3 main performers who each received a gift bag of hats and tops.
Philly’s next big hip-hop star Meek Mills stopped by the Black Box VIP just to visit the Mitchell & Ness Gifting Suite. Mills is a definite fan of the M&N Brand and came by to show love, having been wearing our apparel in three of his last videos.

The finale to the nights performances was the Hip-Hops new mega star Mr. Black and Yellow; WIZ KHALIFA. Who put on a rock inspired performance that closed the 7 hour concert in fitting fashion. When he made his way to the VIP Room, there awaited a mass of fans inside and out screaming and reaching for the world’s newest rockstar, who came surrounded by his Taylor Gang entourage including one Amber Rose on his arm.
Wiz was very surprised and thankful when he saw the gifting suite which had some of our best black and yellow selections just for the Pittsburg native. He selected the 1962 Willie Stargell sleeveless Jersey along with several home team snapbacks.
The concert also feature Diddy and Dirty Money, and R&B singer Chris Brown, who put on top notch performances, however they had tight schedule arrangements and could not make it to the Blackbox VIP Room after their performances. In fact Diddy promptly left NJ in a private helicopter.
