First and foremost I’d like to apologize for the terrible photos that you are about to see. Continuing on with my throwback photos, I have this small selection from Driven Edmonton 2009. I still had no idea what I was doing with a camera and the show was held inside the Mayfield Trade Center which had about as good lighting as the bottom of the ocean.
Despite the smaller venue, the show itself still featured plenty of cars with lambo doors, tons of exotics from Avant Garde Motorsports, and the incredibly talented Kaba Modern fresh off from America’s Best Dance Crew. This was especially special to me as I have been following Mike Song for a LONG time, way before the days of YouTube when he was still relatively unknown, performing at shows like Kollaboration on the same stage as David Elsewhere…
Anyways getting back to the show, I’ll comment on what I can like last time…
These days it’s easy to see everything posted up on social media, but back then it was the norm to display as many past awards as possible and sometimes even have a physical printed photo album showcasing the process of the build.
One of the more memorable moments from this show was when David took the MGM Murciélago LP640 and revved the piss out of it inside the trade center. My GOD did it sound absolutely nuts. Sadly I didn’t take a picture of the car, but here’s one of a white Gallardo, also in the Avant Garde booth.
Because of the terrible lighting combined with my lack of skill behind the camera at the time, this was the only shot that “turned out” from Kaba Modern’s performance at the show. I’m still extremely glad that I got to see KM6 perform live however as I truly believe that they were one of the best groups to ever compete in ABDC. Thankfully Mike and Tony have continued on with the world of dancing and you can still see them perform today as part of the Kinjaz.
