Gatsby Style fashion was on the theme on the red carpet. Sophia Paulmier must receive a mention, dressed elegantly wearing a beautiful red gown by BCBG in the theme of the night, her upcoming projects include The Hypnotist and Apollo Guidance (short), The Hypnotist is still in post production and Apollo premiered in June at the Philadelphia International Film Festival.
Best Man Down , starring Justin Long, Tyler Labine, Jess Weixler, Addison Timlin, Frances O'Connor and Shelley Long, a newlywed couple cancels their honeymoon and returns to the snowy Midwest for their best man, who died unexpectedly after their ceremony , sure to be a hit in the box office.
Immediately following the Premiere VIPs were shuttled to Avalon Landing to board "The Catalina King" for the Great Gatsby Gala Party Cruise.
After the Gala we were invited by two locals Olivia and Gus Gazis who offered to escort us in their electric car to the unofficial after party held at The Marlin Club 108 Catalina Avenue, Avalon, CA.
The Marlin Club is hotspot night club in Catalina featuring a local live band "Catalina Allstars" fittingly named with celebrity band members Vern Altieri ,the driving force in Catalina Island`s club scene where he has teamed up with bass player Mike King and drummer, Roger Connelly of the Blues Merchants.
Presently Vern is working to combine heavy blues with the surf sound of the `60s. Roger quickly spotted the "ArmgenieUSA" hands free cellphone holder on my arm and tried it on. Roger Connelly will be one of the first drummers ever to get an armgenie.
