Richie Loop will also be making his second appearance in Charleston, South Carolina, where he will serve as the host at DJ Stephen Birthday Bash. Richie Loop has described this opportunity by stating that "This being my second visit to Charleston is wonderful, especially since I was just there in November. DJ Stephens informed me that the fans had a great time in November and have asked for my return, and considering the event is his birthday, I jumped at the opportunity to once again entertain the fans"
