The Pace Report. Jody Watley and SHALAMAR Reloaded

Music journalist Brian Pace caught up with Nate Allen Smith, Rosero McCoy and I at soundcheck for the “Midsummer Night Swing” Lincoln Center Damrosch Park – we were a bit weathered and frazzled just getting off train and 4 am call and straight to the venue – but you get the point in the interview, interspersed with concert footage for the event. Tourlife. Life.

Nate Allen Smith, B.K. Kirkland, Jody Watley and Rosero McCoy. Shalamar ‘ Reloaded’ for the new era.

Make sure to listen live on July 5 for an exclusive interview and performance with the new SHALAMAR ® Nate Allen Smith, and Rosero McCoy. We had a great time with ‘In The Groove’ host B.K. Kirkland when we taped this while in Washington D.C. for the Howard Theatre concert June 24. 9am PST 12 noon EST. “In The Groove” is a new series for SIRIUSXM and “The Groove” channel – great idea B.K. I’m proud to be chosen to kick it off!

I perform two of my classics and fan favorites, as well as two with the group.

Full Circle. Jody Watley and New Shalamar Come to Mountain Winery

Shalamar_JodyWatley_KCandSunshineBand_MountainWinery

As a teen K C & The Sunshine Band were a favorite of mine – on Soul Train during my dancer days as soon as the intro would come on to “That’sThe Way I Like It”  I would lose my mind with joy. You know the feeling you get when you really love a song and it comes on. To say I’m honored and excited to be on a show with KC & The Sunshine Band all these years later in all of my current reloaded love and appreciation of disco, funk and soul is truly another full circle moment and I can’t wait to share it with Rosero and Nate! “That’s the way I like it uh huh uh huh!” Boogie shoes indeed!

Each interview is a lesson in business and growth – as well setting a few misperceptions straight. Ultimately this is about today – the now and the newly reloaded SHALAMAR how I arrived .. often things are put in our life’s path for a reason and this is one of those things..
