With the inspiration for the hit single ‘NIGHTLIFE’ and subsequent “PARADISE” rooted in classic disco soul fused with a contemporary take the new hit packed medley of Shalamar works perfectly. Along for the party are millennials PaulMichael Bair (sounding and looking a bit like a young El DeBarge) and Markus Shields (dancer-choreographer who is a beast on the dance-floor). We did our first show on Oct.25, 2014 in Washington D.C. at a private event. Of course I know diehard music group SHALAMAR ™ fans hope to see me reunited with the classic 3 lineup at least one more time on tour. Perhaps that will happen at some point if we can ever agree on business and creative terms. This however is a different concept and experience that does honor the energy style and spirit of the past. I’ve added a modern house touch to signature tunes like ‘Take That To The Bank’ and ‘Right In The Socket’ kong others. To a younger audience who may not be familiar with Shalamar it’s a nice introduction meshed into my own eclectic hit solo repertoire. It’s in the music!

Thanks to one of my fans Rob Spiegel who saw this fabulous poster of me at Essence Festival 2014 and shared with me on Facebook. It was a terrific experience to perform at the festival in 2013.
Had a fab time at last year’s Essence Festival 2013 at the Mercedes Benz Superdome. Here’s a clip of Gerald Brown, a fellow Shalamar original and I performing an impromptu version of “Take That To The Bank.”
