Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded Giving Them Something To Talk About.

 

Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded continue to knock it out of the park pushing the needle forward. It was the second time around at Harrah’s Atlantic City with one of the most dynamic shows out touring. The audience gets favorites spanning decades and genres as diverse as disco R&B, Funk, Pop, Hip hop, Adult contemporary and Dance as well as new music. A near full house at Harrah’s were treated to an emotional tribute to music legend Prince led by group guitarist Levi Seacer Jr., former member of Prince’s NPG.

Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded Rock Harrah’s Atlantic City Again.

We brought our new show to Harrah’s Atlantic City and really took things up a notch. It was another stellar experience, nothing but love from the crowd. Undeniably, our favorite moment of the show was a toss up between ‘Full of Fire’ which turned into a tribute to Prince..Levi really had the audience nearly in tears with his beautiful solo and impromptu playing..the spirit just took us there. We’d planned to extend ‘Still a Thrill’ and go into a few jams like DMSR, Erotic City, Sexy Dancer, Cool..just vibe it..but we ran out of time when it felt like we were just getting warmed up at 90 minutes!

‘Dancer’..you really have to be at one of the concerts to be a part of it. To get everyone moving and grooving so much fun and a blessing. The Shalamar Reloaded was enthusiastically received as well which of course is what we wanted. We are moving forward..that’s what life is about. Learn your lessons. take control of your choices and life and keep it pushing no matter what people have to say.

Here are some behind the scenes photo’s.

Jody Watley and Shalamar Reloaded. Another Concert To Remember in New York City.

Nate, Rosero and I made our second appearance at New York’s B.B. Kings. Our very first performance as a group was at the venue February of 2015. Our show continues to evolve and get better and so it was a joy to perform to another sold-out enthusiastic audience. One of the security guards whose been there for 15 years said seeing our standing ovation at the end of the performance was something he hadn’t seen in a longtime there. We bring it from start to finish. Shalamar Reloaded – and then it’s a Jody Watley party!
