Jody Watley. NEW Video on Youtube.

Each venue and stage is different..and so as an artist you have to not only soundcheck but get the vibe and feel of the stage and venue.  This is from Saturday night in Waukegan IL at the Genesee Theater on the bill with Lisa Lisa and Debbie Gibson.

You can’t just go through the motions and life even in in the mindset of being the best. Often, especially for up and comers, how you practice is how you perform.

Jody Watley The Live Experience.

Concerts feature Jody Watley mega solo hits including “Looking for a New Love” “Don’t You Want Me”, “Friends” “Real Love” and more, as well as a few Shalamar classics originated by Watley including “A Night to Remember” performed with the much buzzed about hot and sexy SRL. featuring Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy.

The audience also gets enchanted by new dance burners and original SRL. music to the delight of the growing fan base.

After a great summer of concerts with and without SRL – more music and dynamic concerts to come for 2018. Booking now  

More than a concert – it’s an experience.
