Via Instagram, fan review of the Deep Water Amphitheater concert really sums the experience Saturday night July 30, 2016 up nicely.
Jody Watley, performing ‘Dancer’ joined by Shalamar Reloaded’s Rosero McCoy, Nate Allen Smith and Allegra Dance Crew -a celebration of dance and inner confidence from ‘Paradise’ EP and ‘Dancer’ Remixed.
A studio snippet, Nate came up with this song while singing in the shower while we in Japan for concerts at Billboard Live in January. So far from the post on other social media, fans are digging this snippet.
We just dropped O.R.I.G.in.A.L single and video, while always creating, exchanging ideas and thinking of ways to make our concerts pop even more than they do. It’s great to be building our own catalogue and brand identity – Music. Dance. Style.
In the event you missed some of the origins of this new creative and business journey, here are a few archived links of interviews:
Why pre-order? To show early support for the music. Please also make sure the show love as well by ratings and positive reviews. Thanks in advance.
Despite the naysayers, detractors and the constant efforts to undermine – we are pushing forward. In fact, this song was inspired by the online trolls, haters and those who have been throwing shade at us — as we proceed forward.
Being a real group and artist means you don’t just show up to get a check, the work happens all the time if you want to make things unique, distinct.. meeting, brainstorming, exchanging ideas, listening to each other, being able to keep it real and honest..before ever taking the stage, going in studio, making a video. We don’t just get together to pick up a check, we are constantly in communication. Some want the shine without the grind – not us. We understand that building something special takes time, we’re enjoying the process despite any challenges, roadblocks and those trying to undermine our efforts.
Planning and preparation at Rosero’s home with Nate Allen Smith.

Avitone created in 1995 with the mantra of fueling quality music is another element of my career as a business woman and artist that I’m very proud of. Never waiting for anyone to give me anything or any easy opportunity – it’s always about the work, the journey and doing things with style and a level of quality to be proud of. You have to believe in yourself and if there’s no door – create one. Being an independent has it’s challenges but should never a deterrent.
Pre-Order the forthcoming new Shalamar Reloaded single at Amazon, other digital outlets are coming worldwide. We are excited to pushing forward..this single was inspired by haters..trolls..and the naysayers and shade throwers who have nothing better to do than go around trying to bring others down – as we proceed, we recommend it. Originals, us 3.
