The StreetBeat Entertainment Group


Our mission is to showcase the talents of the Indie scene to U, the grassroots of the world, thereby allowing U to decide who are the Stars of today and our future.

Our Matra: Lifestyle Media Networks of Today’s Indie Artists

The StreetBeat Entertainment Group was founded in 1994 in Portland, Oregon by Robbe Hardnette, to provide the tools and fundamentals needed for youth and independent artists seeking careers in the music industry.

As awareness grew, SBEG launched a magazine for viewers to engage in new emerging indie talents. The StreetBeat magazine grew out of a handful of followers to an international audience, with viewership reaching as high as 30,000 a week. Thereafter the online radio station was born, and more will follow.

SBEG desires to create opportunities within the entertainment industries for artist distribution and build consumer awareness of the indie artist community. Why indie? The independent entertainment industry is emerging to be one of the fastest growing segments of the entertainment industry, due largely in part to social media. The StreetBeat Entertainment Group is positioned to advance on this growing trend, with a business model that incorporates grass-root identity and corporate systems.

SBEG provides collective experiences from the entertainment industry which gives the indie artists a wealth of information to learn from. With various SBEG systems in place, the foundation is set to be part of the next wave of an industry standard, desperately needed to create sustainability for the industry.

In the fall of 2011, StreetBeat moved its corporate office to Vancouver, BC but still retains satellite offices in Portland Oregon, Houston Texas, and Seattle Washington.

To fully accomplish our goal, we need your support! Spreading the word about The StreetBeat and acting as Ambassadors in sharing our mission and cause. We strive to provide you with quality talents from the indie scene, creating reliable and fair market value, and then you the listener decides, who the future stars of the entertainment industry are rather than marketer and bean counters. So stay connected to The StreetBeat Entertainment Group: Lifestyle Media Network of Today's Indie Artists!

Ralson Caoc

Ralson Caoc
Hi, I'm Ralson Caoc AKA "RaullyRAL". I have enjoyed dancing ever since I can remember, but not through any formal training, mainly urban styles in the clubs and freestyling to the sounds of Hip-hop and R&B. Whatever gets you to forget about your troubles or worries and makes you wanna move. I'm known as the "big guy that can move" from what I hear, because it's not about the moves or looking good it's about the feeling. Life is the journey, dance is the experiment.

I'm from New York City and I moved to Vancouver in 2011 looking for active things to do. As a student and huge fan of Hip-Hop/R&B, dancehall, and latin music, I discovered Zumba® as an alternative to working out in gyms/group fitness and to compliment my Hip-hop classes. I am also certified in Fierce FUNk®. I have more of that fun groovin' style you would get from a party, street or a club so check out one of my classes. Remember, we are ALL dancers.

Feel the music and your body will follow...and the calories will burn.
