When you wake up in the morning with the SPAC3MAN EP in your back pocket, a VIP badge on your leg, and Macklemore’s Hardwood Classic Charlotte Hornets jacket…you know it was a good night.
We will get to the sausage in a little bit, but here’s the story.
A few years ago I (Brian Myers, Marketing and Sales of Uli’s Famous Sausage) was once a tour manager for Seattle’s hip-hop duo, Blue Scholars (Prometheus Brown and Sabzi). Hence the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis connection. We once drove from Brooklyn to Boston with no window after the car got jacked and Ryan had his laptop stolen. Not a happy day, but the show that night was amazing. I believe the night before I launched a water bottle into the crowd and it ricocheted off Macklemore’s head, I will never forget that one. We knew then, what most know now; that these guys were going to blow up.
Fast forward to Day 2 of the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis sold out Key Arena Seattle show. The show was amazing, backstage was fun, and being there in the presence of friends made me think how we are all blessed to be doing what we do. Macklemore said he liked my Boeing work jacket, so I gave it to him. He gave me his Hardwood Classic Charlotte Hornets jacket.
Seriously, another cool and unforgettable moment. So we will make a Raven Bowie Sausage. Who’s Raven Bowie you ask? He’s awesome, that’s all you can really say about Raven Bowie.
The moral of this story: When you put your heart into your work, the end result is nothing short of spectacular. It’s what we do here at Uli’s. So cheers to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for being some real hometown heroes.
“Take my hand, let’s have a blast - and remember this moment for the rest of our lives”
