L8 Night Flights, a professional entertainment and promotion company, is celebrating their one year anniversary with a special guest and top world traveling DJ Artist & Producer, Dennis Ferrer.
This may be L8 Night Flights (L8NF) first anniversary, but the professionals behind L8NF are no strangers to the downtown St. Petersburg (DTSP) night life. Jason Kitchen and Lyndon Uy were the resident DJ’s at Push Ultra Lounge Rooftop, between the years 2010 through 2017. They brought good vibes to the DTSP and Tampa areas at other venues, including the Vinoy, Tryst, Jackson’s, and Hyde Park Café.
In 2018, Jason and Lyndon made a new home at Ichicoro Station House ANE, thanks to an experience one night in the Spring of 2018. After playing an early gig at the promenade at the Vinoy, Jason wanted to hear House Music at another venue, and learned that they had a Top 40 DJ instead. That same night, Jason commented on Facebook, stating, “How strange is it, after DJ’ing house music for over 6 years every Friday & Saturday night in downtown St. Pete, that there was nowhere to go to hear any House Music.”
This comment resulted in a chain of events and introductions to the right resources, location and people, such as Co-Owner, Kerem Koca, Managing Partner at Ichicoro who has a love and an immense appreciation for House Music. Since then, L8 Night Flights have been elevating the frequency of DTSP by bringing in professional, top world touring DJ’s, such as, Francesca Lombardo, Roger Sanchez, Anja Schneider, Luca Bachetti, Todd Terry, John Tejada, Supernova, Felix Da Housecat and now, Dennis Ferrer. Equally important, they have a special knack for bringing in top local talent where House Music can be enjoyed every Friday and Saturday night, with no cover, and happy hour starting at midnight. Check out their cocktails here.
L8 Night Flights and Ichicoro’s goal quite simply, is to give House Music and the people who love it, a weekly home, in downtown St. Petersburg, continuing the tradition that was started in Summer of 2010 on the rooftop of Push Ultra Lounge.
L8 Night Flights and Ichicoro are surpassing their goal. The relationship between Ichicoro and L8NF is strong and filled with respect, for one another, their colleagues, DJ guests and their patrons. They are doing “it right” by making sure their customers and fans are well taken care of, from the friendly environment, delicious food and cocktails served, to the artists chosen to play, a stellar sound system, and an up close and personal experience with the incredible talent they bring in.
They most recently, created a larger space to make it even more comfortable for dancing and added an additional air conditioning unit for ‘hot” nights like their celebration party, not to mention that they have plenty of seats. It truly is a perfect night out every time.
Come experience it for yourself on June 21st and help us wish L8 Night Flights a Happy Anniversary! Purchase tickets here. See you on the dance floor!
