Rich Medina

  • ̸


    The Block SLC is becoming a members-only art collective, proof of ticket and membership registration will be required at the door. (Early arrival is highly recommended more details below) Rich Medina is an elite international DJ who, in the thirty-plus years since he spun his first record, has turned his young love for music into a celebrated career as a platinum-selling record producer, recording artist, poet, journalist, and Ivy League lecturer. From the legendary nine-year-run of his Lil’ Ricky’s Rib Shack party at APT in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, to his globe-spanning, conscious-raising, dance-floor-shaking party Jump-N-Funk, a sonic tribute afrobeat and its iconic creator Fela Kuti, Rich stands without peer as a contemporary DJ of diverse range and taste. A sonic storyteller par excellence. But his art pushes past those boundaries. As a respected spoken word artist, he has performed on stages around the world, and his sonorous voice has been utilized by everyone from EA Sports to Nike. He’s an intellectual and public speaker who has lectured at TEDXPhilly and his alma mater Cornell, amongst others. And he’s a producer of note, crafting work with a range of artists, including Jill Scott, J Dilla, Bobbito Garcia and Phil Asher. In short, Rich Medina is the modern-day renaissance man—an artist and visionary who has built a compelling narrative on his own terms. And his journey continues. New Rules Of Attendance 
Dear Salt Lake City Community, 
We're excited to announce that The Block SLC is becoming a members-only art collective, making our events more private, intimate, and most importantly, safer for our guests and staff.
 This means that for all future events hosted at The Block, attendees must be verified members to attend.
 Social Disco Club has teamed up with The Block SLC to host the launch of the members-only program. The $10 dollar monthly membership fee for the month of June will be included in the purchase of the SDC Rich Medina ticket. Once you arrive at the event, the door staff will register your information and create a verified membership for the month of June, this will give you access and discounts to all the events at The Block for the remainder of the month. 
 If you wish to subscribe to the recurring monthly membership (after June) talk to the door staff. Every RSVP/application will be reviewed by The Block Staff and verified before an invite to join the event is sent. You must be at least 21 to apply, have a valid I.D., email, and a credit card. Memberships will be limited and once the membership pool is full, you'll have to wait for the next Open Enrollment Period to apply. VENUE: THINGS TO KNOW BYOB is accepted, but The Block SLC will no longer accept glass bottles inside the venue, so come prepared with cans or plastic containers only.
