Stephen Hua is one of, if not the most hard working promoter our city has had the privilege of having. Along with his team, Sound Republic, Stephen is the man who helped bring us Elise Estrada, Girlicious, The America’s Dance Crew S2 Tour and countless others. He’s been a great help to our city’s night life industry as well as Access Winnipeg’s exposure. So it’s only natural we’d want to help him in his time of need. Hit Read More to… READ MORE!

On Sunday, January 4th, Stephen Hua’s afterhours spot, “AM,” was broken into and as a result, he incurred a loss of thousands of dollars in sound equipment as well as a chunk of cash.
It is sad that this had to happen and it’s really a terrible way for Stephen to start this promising new year.
As many of you already know, Stephen is an amazing human being and I am proud to call him no less then my brother. He always helps where he can and his biggest contribution to date has been what he has done for us all in the Winnipeg club and event scene. For years now, he has put together events at every club and venue imaginable…even when he cuts a loss. His determination and loyalty to our scene is admirable and deserves recognition.
With this in mind, a few of us have decided to put together a fund raiser for Stephen as he was not insured for this loss. Everyone involved is donating their time and all that we ask is that you come and show some support this Friday at the EEC.
We have not put a cover charge on the night but we ask that you donate what you can at the door and anything will be appreciated. We are proud and thankful for the dj’s who have donated their time, music and skills to this event…DJ Diggs, DJ Hectic and DJ Alphagroove. All are fantastic at their craft and will provide the spectrum of sound needed for an amazing night.
Really, think about any event and any celebrity our city has hosted. As much as this is a business, I’m sure Sound Republic and Stephen do this for us, the people. Join the group and/or show your support by attending the fund raiser with your friends. See you there and here’s to many more events c/o our local promoters!
