“Citizens of Baton Rouge should not have to drive for hours to be
entertained. The entertainment should be in their backyard,” said Adrian
Hammond of Affiliate Nation Productions.
True to this belief, Hammond has brought some of the most popular entertainers in the world to Baton Rouge. This weekend will be no different as Affiliate brings boxing champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather, to Famous Theater, 150 Mayflower Street, Saturday, Oct. 13th.
“The Famous Theater is one of the nicest venues in Baton Rouge for
adults to be entertained in the city and will provide a great back drop for Floyd
and his fans,” said Hammond. Mayweather has been referred to as one of the
best and most talented fighters in boxing today. Having 43-0 record and a
recorded 26 knockouts along with eight world championship titles in five
The party starts at 9p.m. with local deejays DJ HI-C and DJ Groovekid. General
admission tickets, available at www.themaineventbr.com, are $10.
Hammond said the boxer is not traveling to Baton Rouge to only have a good time
with his fans but also to give back to the community. Mayweather will
speak to youth at the Louisiana Leadership Institute during his visit.
“It’s important for kids to see someone at his level of success and hear
about the struggles he went through so that they know that everyone goes
through them”, said Hammond.
Hammond started Affiliate Nation Productions in 2002 as 51/50 Productions. Since
then he takes credit for bringing productions to Baton Rouge, New Orleans,
Houston, and New York that have headlined by Mary J. Blige, Tank, Lil’ Wayne, and
“At Affiliate Nation we plan to bring popular artist to Louisiana on a quarterly basis”, said Hammond.
After Mayweather, Hammond said Affiliate will focus on bringing music mogul
Sean “P. Diddy” Combs to New Orleans early next year when the Big Easy hosts
Super Bowl XLVII.
