Name: Legendary Damon

Q: EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW WHO DAMON IS? WHERE WERE YOU BORN, WHERE DID YOU GROW UP, HOW DID YOU BECOME LEGENDARY?
I proudly tell everyone that I was born and raised in Detroit. I love being raised in Detroit, because growing up in the Midwest it instilled in me good values and it taught me to work hard. I brought those skills with me to NY when I moved here at 18. I feel that I was born to be legendary.
Q: "YOU'RE NOT ON THE LIST!" IS ONE OF YOUR MOST FAMOUS TAG LINES. HOW DID THIS COME ABOUT?
The tagline came about very simply. I do lot of events and work the door. People always know someone and want to get in and I constantly have to say “You’re not on the List”. When I am working an event I am charged with a specific task of making sure the right people are in the room. It is usually invite only and exclusive, so by the end of the night I have said “You’re not on the List” repeatedly so it just stuck.
