Ok so im a big freestyle fan, im only 22 years old and i didnt grow up with it like alot of you, i got introduced to freestyle because im a professional Jamskater, and i Rollerskate all over the country.

Ive met Stevie B, Coro, Noel, safire, and now I can finally say i met TKA....

For some reason when i think of all the days in the past about skating ion Chicago TKA comes to mind, i love skating to TKA its so awesome...

so heres details about the event.........

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

So i drive 3 and a half hours to Studio 63 in Chicago and me and my friend get a hotel room because we know were not driving back....

so we get to the club kind of early, of course they already look at me wierd because im a young pale ass white boy who knows all the words to all the freestyle songs that are playing... but that dont bother me.......

so when i walk in the door i go to the owner which he knows me because he knows we travel so far, i ask him "hey is all 3 members of TKA going to be here"? he sayd "Yes"

well about midnight the announce tka will be performing shortly....

so they come up on stage and I quickly realize that there are 4 people on stage..... so im like what the hell....

turns out its k7 and the swingkids.....

I was instantly pissed off, i didnt drive 3 hours spend money for hotel and so on to see k7 and the dam swingkids.......

I have to admit they did put on a good show, but all the awesome classics that TKA sung i didnt get to hear.

k7 only sung the songs that he was a lead singer in (so i think) which wasnt that many songs.......

the funny part about it is that the majority of the people at the club, had no clue that wasnt the members of TKA.... so i didnt spoil anyones thoughts, i just let em think it..... but now im starting to wander if the owner even knew.....

So i went and got an autograph and got my pic taken with k7, well when we did the autograph i got k7's 1st then he passed it to the other guys which were all assholes..... k7 was actually the nicer one....

"im thinking in my head, man you guys wouldnt be shit if it wasnt for k7"

it just agrivated me, i set there and talked to k7 for a while about certain things and we had a good conversation....

I have to say it was worth the trip because i got to meet k7, but i wanted to see TKA and hear TKA...... so that was disapointing......

well now you know the story and now you can see the pictures........ please tell me what you think.......

Great Pix!! Glad you enjoyed the show! I actually remember
seing you there..were you the one w/the Old Records?..
I think i asked someone if i could see them..They were awesome!
I also remember a guy..a dj..not sure if it was you..who asked
Kay for specific Lyrics to a song?.. That was cool! ;) We saw
alot of die hard fans that night! It was nice seeing all the fans
happy to meet the guys! It was a long line..and a guy & girl
managed to get in line twice...The guys have such great Fans
in Chicago..thats why I always try to get them down here! ;)

Sorry you were mislead about who was gonna be there...
..we always Try to be specific on flyers & forums:
http://www.clubfreestyle.com/forum/showthread.php?t=59794
ever since TKA the Trio originally broke up in '92...and K7 & the
SwingKids released their first CD in '93...so K7 & SK have been
together for 12 or so yrs now, even during TKA comeback in 2000,
Its unfortunate the fans still get misled.. But so you know, both
names belong to Kay, so he goes as K7/TKA..cuz thats who he is.

Great pictures!

I'm glad that in the end as a whole you enjoyed the show. Now as to you being misled... take that up with the club owner. Their flyers the website all said K7 on them. But like you said it was a great show. I was 'backstage' with them when you came thru. The security staff was rushing people out of that room and doing it in a pretty rude way. This bothered me. It was unnecessary and as a matter of fact the guys were all enjoying meeting their fans. I'm just curious .. how were the guys assholes to you? I dont remember those guys being rude or disrespectful to anyone. The security guys..now that was a different story.

Anyway I'm glad you came out for the show. Doesnt matter if your hispanic or a white boy or whatever. Skater boys are awesome! :)

I've im adding my pictures too! They're not great because I was right next to the stage. Tell me what you think tho.

I feel like I was mislead because of my own reasons, not because of the club owner....

I heard the name TKA and i just assumed it would be all 3. I admit its my own fault but i dont keep up with all the freestyle news like everyone on this forum....

I am so busy with my own forum www.breaksk8empire.com and I have over 2000 members on it, so we are slowly catching up with club freestyle numbers......lol

the member s that was an a*****e to me was the guy in the lower right conrer in my autographed picture.... and this was after i got the autograph, he was by the pool tables.

but overall i had an excellent time....

AAhhhhhhhhh so like You Said: (it was after the meet & greet)..."At The Pool Tables".....meaning....while he was no longer a performer meeting fans.. he was .on his own time..and having some fun & drinks..at a club..shooting pool...yeah ..like Any Typical guy at 3am in the morning after having some drinks..Dont take it Personal...the Show was Over..the Meet n Greet Was Over...you have to let ppl be....what Matters is that as a Performer...when he met you, he was courteous with you....after that he was just a guy at a club unwhinning..

who is in charge of TKA's websites? does anyone know?
They are!
But it gets updated slowly..due to lack of time..
They are all involved in other Businesses.

I see that you are VIP so you should be able to do 100X100. Let me know if you can't make it any bigger and I will contact the Admin about it.
