GRAMMY WINNER JODY WATLEY & SHALAMAR ‘RELOADED’ CELEBRATE NEW SINGLE AT GIORGIO’S, IN THE STANDARD, HOLLYWOOD

 

On Saturday, July 18th, the most infamous disco dance party in Los Angeles, Giorgio’s housed at the Standard, Hollywood hosted an once in a lifetime performance by Grammy-winning multi-platinum singer, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur Jody Watley. Watley, one of Pop/R&B and dance music’s most enduring and stylish trailblazers, returned with the newly Reloaded Shalamar ® that features Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy which released on 7.17.15. The performance served as the launch for the newly Reloaded Shalamar ® and the release of their sexy new single “SlowDance” that has been celebrated worldwide in all digital outlets through Watley’s longtime imprint Avitone Recordings. This is the first single for the modern trio and the first official single release for Shalamar ® since 1990 in it’s earlier recording history.

 

Disco lovers were in awe as Watley commanded the stage. The jaw dropping performance proved Watley has not missed a beat since Shalamar’s ® last release as the crowd danced the night away in awe of the amazing performance they were able to witness. Always fashion forward Watley was wearing a black sequence Chanel coast while LA’s fashion set was out in full force such as designer Michael Schmidt, shoe designer Jerome C. Rousseau (named a shoe in his last season collection called “The Watley”), John Eshaya (JET) Marcy Medina (WWD), celebrity make-up Kathy Jeung, and celebrity hair stylist Peter Savic. Some other attending notables included: celebrity photographer Greg Gorman, actress Tisha Campbell, comedian Craig Robinson (The Office), famed hollywood interior Designer Cliff Fong, Billy Woodruff (Director), and Ed Patuto (Broad Museum).

Full Circle. Jody Watley and New Shalamar Come to Mountain Winery

Shalamar_JodyWatley_KCandSunshineBand_MountainWinery

As a teen K C & The Sunshine Band were a favorite of mine – on Soul Train during my dancer days as soon as the intro would come on to “That’sThe Way I Like It”  I would lose my mind with joy. You know the feeling you get when you really love a song and it comes on. To say I’m honored and excited to be on a show with KC & The Sunshine Band all these years later in all of my current reloaded love and appreciation of disco, funk and soul is truly another full circle moment and I can’t wait to share it with Rosero and Nate! “That’s the way I like it uh huh uh huh!” Boogie shoes indeed!
