Jody Watley News and Upcoming Concert Schedule

As always, I’m really excited about the upcoming concerts in Japan at Billboard Live. These concerts will close out an exciting 2014. I hired a new booking agent this year and it’s already paying off. In the past, I chose not to work so much because I was enjoying being a stay at home Mom raising her children though picking and choosing when to travel – a luxury of being a songwriter to so many hit singles.  I’ll always be discerning about what and when to take jobs but I do feel a new enthusiasm for this part of the business. With the music of PARADISE, mixed in with a range of curated hits from both catalogs of Jody Watley and the new millennial SHALAMAR ™ adding to the set, it’s even more of a party. Rosero McCoy has done a great job creating new choreography for us. The ladies are enjoying Paul’Michael who brings such a fresh young energy and charm along with his own vocal style. The shows will only get better and we’re having a great time together.

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.

Jody Watley Talks Music and Business on New Venture Who’s That Lady

 

JodyWatleyInstagramParadise

I appreciate the fact that this new website is focused on positivity and interviews; not gossip on women in music, television and film. They’ve been incredibly supportive of “PARADISE” on Twitter and other social media; I wanted to show my support to Belinda James and the Who’s That Lady Entertainment team.  If you’re tired of gossip based media and trust me, I understand the commerce and need for a bit of entertainment and gossip here and there; however there should also be room for other mediums such as this – support these alternatives.
