WMG'S PRE-GRAMMY PARTY: AN ATHLETIC NIGHT IN HOLLYWOOD

Presenting a few elegant tableaux from Warner Music Group's heavily attended and highly celebratory pre-Grammy wingding at the Hollywood Athletic Club. The festivities included performances by Lizzo and Burna Boy, and various executives were spotted dancing with respectable abandon. The mood was buoyant throughout, which was only partly due to the rivers of vodka that flowed without surcease. In addition to the folks listed below, Len Blavatnik, Steve Cooper, Guy Moot, Carianne Marshall and EVP Biz Dev Oana Ruxandra, among other top execs, rubbed elbows with a bevy of celebs and industry movers like Amazon's Steve Boom and iHeart programming guru Tom Poleman.


Seen before WMG Recorded Music boss Max Lousada noted that the party was uncomfortably close to the HITS offices are (l-r) Warner Records Co-Chair/COO Tom Corson, Grammy-nominated artist Gary Clark Jr., Lousada, Grammy nominee Yola, Warner Records Co-Chair/CEO Aaron Bay-Schuck, artist JoJo and Nonesuch's David Bither.


It was a down-home country moment for Warner Music Nashville chief John Esposito and his artists, except for the fact that nobody in this photo can have gluten. Seen wishing security had managed to keep us out are (l-r) Espo, WMN's Scott Hendricks, Shay Mooney of Grammy nominees Dan + Shay, Grammy-nominated Blake Shelton, Lousada, Gwen Stefani, Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay and Grammy nominee Ashley McBryde.

Fashion icon Naomi Campbell and iHeart Prexy John Sykes joined forces for this dashing photo op, which they quietly wished could be published anywhere but here.


Shelton at last reveals to Lousada that his Grammy-nominated smash "God's Country" was in fact written about Boyle Heights, and parts of El Sereno.
