Mistah F.A.B. has partnered with Bay Area talent manager turned TV personality Dame Fame, to create a unique new alternative outlet for teens in and around San Francisco area.
The two have developed a new cable access dance show geared at high school students.
The new show, Live!, was conceptualized as a means of creating a safe haven for teens which simultaneously keeps them out of harms way.
Mistah F.A.B. launches Live! in a time when Oakland and other Bay Area neighborhoods are experiencing a surge in criminal activity and violence.
In addition to bringing students 14-17 together in a drug and violent free environment, the show will provide an opportunity for kids to dance their stress away, as part of the studio audience for the Soul Train-styled show.
Each week, student will also be treated to performances by area artists including Kafani, J. Valentine, Scooter Smiff and F.A.B. himself, who will pull double duty as the shows co-host alongside Dame Fame.
Students will be required to present a valid school ID to participate in the weekly tapings.
The city of Oakland and the office of Mayor Ron Dellams have already pledged their support to help ensure the shows success and expand the scope of its reach in the community.
Live! will be broadcast weekly on Comcasts OurTV throughout the Bay Area.
