Friday July 19 on Staten Island was super hot, nearly 100 degrees in the shade at City Parks Presents Summerstage Corporal Thompson Park. Thanks to all the braved the sweltering temperature to enjoy classic disco vinyl spun by Joey Carvello from Mobile Monday’s and international Queen Of Waacking Princess Lockeroo who gave lessons on how to werk it.

After slaying a set that leaned more heavily on the disco theme which meant a bit more of my Shalamar repertoire than usual we had an early start to Bethesda. Loved the train ride.. always nice to have a moment of pause looking out at the scenery.

Traveling band..it makes all the difference to enjoy the company you keep while on the road handing business.

The setlist featured a few deep cuts like Skin Deep from the critically acclaimed “Midnight Lounge” full length, “Precious Love” “Nightlife” the classic soul Soulpersona mix with a nod to the late great Phyllis Hyman. Also on the set was current single collaboration with Brian Power “Good Good Reason.”

City Parks put on first class events so this will be no different with Deejay Joey Carvello from Mobile Monday’s spinning classic disco vinyl, dance lessons from world renowned Waacking Queen Princess Lockeroo as well. Look for a bit more Shalamar than I normally do with SRL and of course some choice cuts from my own eclectic solo repertoire including the current single “Good Good Reason” nu-disco soul vibes.

On Saturday night the party lands in Bethesda, Maryland at Bethesda Blues and Jazz “Celebrating 30 Years Of Real Love” and beyond. I’m full of gratitude to continue to be blessed to do what I love and share the gift of music and still be fabulous.
