After a full day of teaching Yoga classes, last night I had the chance to play at The People's Lounge. This event was a Jam Session, put on by the talented Ms. Shelita Vaughns. The line up included 4 R&B/Soul artists (including myself) and one rapper. The venue had many patrons, and fans of the various performers. It was an amazing night of music.
The first artist Zuwadi, performed with a full band and did an improv song where he encouraged the audience to provide three words so he can create a new song. One of the words was Jelly Beans and all I can say is there should be more Jelly Bean songs. Act two was a rapper, Last Offense. He was a gay rapper and introduced the crowd to a very new style and approach to lyrics. Next was myself, and I played keys, singing a small set of original, sensual, slow jams. Shelita followed with an acoustic set, complete with a guitar and trumpet. Finally we were entertained by C.Devon. This girl had a full band and brought Caribbean flavour and R&B Soul to an Alternative Edge. Her background dancers swished their hips and sang lovely harmonies while the band brought the funk! It was a great night of live music. Thank you to all who came out to enjoy the show and thanks Shelita for inviting me to play again. I am excited to belly dance for your show in August!
