Jody Watley Unveils a Millennial Shalamar in New Concert Set

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!
