Traditionally, the lion dance is performed to ward off evil spirits and to bring good fortune to businesses and people alike. Have our lions bless your business and start your endeavors with a roar.

  • Beyond a shadow of a doubt, The Dragon Ball, the first Chinese New Year celebration held at Club M on Sat was a big success, largely due to the phenomenal performance of SSLD!!! On behalf of Club M, Club VIP, Downtown Dolls and GEM - Gaslamp Event Management, we would like thank you and everyone from SSLD for contributing to the event’s success. Club M broke all records that evening (in attendance and sales)! We truly appreciate your talent, all the time and effort you put into coordinating the lion dance!
