The Roots & Friends Pre-GRAMMY Jam Session
On Saturday, January 25th, 2020 BUDDAH TEK, the world's first luxury gaming accessories company, held an intimate pop up of their portable gaming stations at the 16th annual The Roots & Friends Pre-GRAMMY Jam Session at Live House in Hollywood, CA.
Buddah Tek CEO/Founder, Venus Brown, a veteran music producer for notable GRAMMY award winners like Justin Timberlake, Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, and others, created the Rover 1 Portable Gaming Station and its companion, the R1 Luxury Gaming Messenger Bag from years of touring and managing talent who wanted to take their XBOX or Playstation with them on the go. He found that they would often wrap their consoles and controllers in blankets and stuff everything into a duffle bag. Nothing served as all-in-one solution to game without a TV while traveling, or carry the consoles or accessories in a fashionable bag that could also protect its contents, until now. The Rover 1 Portable Gaming Station & the R1 Luxury Gaming Messenger Bag from Buddah Tek is the perfect combination for those who want to game and travel in style.
The Buddah Tek Luxury Gaming Lounge was located in the VIP area of The Roots’ invite-only event, that brought together GRAMMY nominees, fellow musicians, and industry professionals for the ultimate jam session. The Roots shared the stage with a variety of GRAMMY nominees like Billy Ray Cyrus, Dave Chappelle, and Gary Clark Jr, to name a few.
The Roots, friends of the brand, and Venus Brown invited guests to play a variety of games like Mortal Kombat and Madden on the Buddah Tek Rover 1 stations in between the jam sessions. Guests such as Riverdale actor Rob Raco, Quality Control Music CO-Founder /Coo, Kevin “Coach K” Lee, music and fashion icon Taz Arnold, multi-GRAMMY award winner Lalah Hathaway, President of Live Nation Urban/ The Roots manager Shawn Gee, multi-GRAMMY award winner Rance Dopson from 1500 or Nothin, EMMY award-nominated actress Vanessa Williams and Netflix’s ‘I Am Not Okay with This’ actor Richard Ellis were in attendance and casually competed with one another ultra-portable table Rover 1 gaming stations.
Buddah Tek also showcased a limited edition Buddah Tek x Swarovski Rover 1 Portable Gaming Station and embellished R1 Luxury Gaming Messenger Bag.
