Meet Legendary Damon

Name: Legendary Damon

Occupation: Curator of Culture

Years in the Industry: Since Birth

 

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.

Q: FUR & SEQUINS, WHAT ARE YOUR FASHION MUSTS WHEN HOSTING YOUR STAR STUDDED EVENTS?

My fashion musts are gold teeth. My goat to favorites are furs, sequins anything shiny. Also a little Versace never hurt anybody.

Q: DO YOU FEEL LIKE THE PARTY SCENE HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS? IF SO, WHAT'S MISSING?

Yes, it has changed as is should. Evolution is an amazing thing.   I don’t want to be doing the same party that I was doing 10 years ago.   There is nothing missing from the scene.   I feel like I am here still doing amazing parties in NY city.

Q: IF YOU WERE LEFT ON AN ISLAND AND COULD ONLY BRING THREE ITEMS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE AND WHY?

My gold teeth, music and Versace shades.   These are items that I can’t live without!
