Jody Watley Bethesda Blues Blues and Jazz – Long Beach Freestyle Festival In Review

Had a fabulous round of concerts this weekend of different vibes. The Maryland / D.C. trip began with a solid round of television being welcomed to WUSA 9 and Fox 5 Good Day DC.

 

Soundcheck at 8 A.M. on point live vocals.

Snippet of interview.

I gifted the ladies jumbo Watley hoop earrings and a handheld fan.

After the performance of the Top 10 “Waiting In Vain” and interview, I was off to Fox 5 Good Day DC where there is always a memorable moment.

 

The soul, jazz, pop, funk full experience at the historic venue Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club was joyful, emotional, resilient and funky.

 

Soundchecking our next single “The Passion” – Epic Soul Music and Life Anthem.

Jody Watley & SRL.

 

Always a party.

 

I took an awful fall at the top of the show- like life we have to pick ourselves up, keep going and never lose sense of humor.

 

I loved the after show Q&A and kudos to the promoter for thinking outside the box beyond the standard meet and greet. This was very special.

The Freestyle Festival on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California was a Cinco De Mayo party in perfect outdoor weather.

Feeling the love.

 

A classic hit in front of 10,000.
