Jody Watley Pala Jam In Review.

Pala Jam went down in San Diego at the beautiful Pala Casino Spa & Resort. Sold out show of appreciation of classic soul and funk music with three of music’s venerable women in music, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Jody Watley and The SOS Band fronted by original lead Mary Davis. Terrific energy from the crowd for each artist- a beautiful and spirited evening of funky music and a lot of soul.

My band and squad SRL, a evolving into a collective of musicians, dancers, choreographers and performers joining me for one hell of a show!
