Kenard Gibbs and Peter Griffith’s Mad Vision Acquires Soul Train

Been holding this one under the lid, very excited for my good friend Kenard Gibbs and his partners Peter Griffith and Anthony Maddox who acquired the rights for Soul Train a few weeks ago. I have been an avid Tivo fanatic of the old Soul Train re-runs over the last year or so and my 6 year has become addicted to the dance and styles of the 70’s. This deal has been in the works for a long time and really glad that they were the team to end up buying. Soul Train is as American as Apple Pie and has a long history with our country. Most importantly, we seem to be headed down a cultural path where dancing is becoming big again with young people (Randy Jackson’s “American Best Dance Crew”, Soulja Boy’s success, Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance”) and they couldn’t be relaunching a brand like Soul Train at a better time. For me, I grew up watching Soul Train, my first experiences at music industry functions as a “snotty nose” intern were at The Soul Train Awards and my cousin was even the host of Soul Train for a season despite his questionable dance skills! Hats off to Madvision and looking forward to seeing what they are going to do.
