Jody Watley Update. SHALAMAR ™ and PARADISE

The show at Cache Creek Casino and Resort was a sold-out funky party from start to finish. This is a must see concert if you’re in to great music and entertainment. It doesn’t feel like a rote exercise in nostalgia because it’s not – although filled with classics.

The show begins with a rebooted SHALAMAR ™ featuring new young vocalist Paul/Michael Bair and for now renowned choreographer / dancer / vocalist Rosero McCoy. Some people want the thought of a reunion of the classic 3 lineup and of course I understand. The invitation has been extended again from my part – it  is on the table whenever the business and creative is sorted, with my former classic 3 members Jeffrey Daniel and Howard Hewett.

This is a different vibe and no one will be disappointed if coming to embrace great entertainment, singing and dancing. At the start, original lead vocalist Gerald Brown “Take That To The Bank” was going to be a part of this new endeavor, however it didn’t work out with him. When that happened, I did reach out to Howard and offer an invitation to join us. He declined and wished me well with it.

This concert begins with SHALAMAR ™ and ends in a funky beat down with some of my signature solo hits and new music from PARADISE including the hit single ‘NIGHTLIFE.’

This is a strong show, not simply because of the hits but because it’s fresh with spot on choreography, chemistry and style.  The vocal blend is on point, and Paul’Michael’s tone fits perfectly. The universe always has it’s way.

One of my favorite splurges and items in the world are great candles. I burn candles everyday, take them with me when I travel. Fragrant and comforting – they are a plus to ant home or environment.
