En route to concert – stage ready..stopped and got out to capture the colorful background – did not order food!

Pacific Concert Group and Groove 99.3 Presents SummerBash went down in the small city of Bakersfield August 24, 2019 – scorching summer heat and a party crowd packed Stramler Park. The multi-act all hits show also included The Jets, Digital Underground, Rob Base and Color Me Badd.

Stage ready with the squad. Pictured with Jody Watley (Tevyn Cole, Kayla Simone, John ‘Havic’ Gregory, Nate Allen Smith and Jasmine Boyes).

Though I prefer doing full spectrum concerts with my band because of the musical freedom and showcasing my artistry, songwriting and vast eclectic repertoire spanning decades – these all hits shows are meaningful in a different way.

The classic stations keep the hits alive by continuing to keep the songs in rotation and as a result not only service those who love the memories classic hits represent but also expose the music to new generations.

Remaining creative and not stagnant through the decades is important to me, keeping the music coming and evolving. At the same time I appreciate the blessings of being able to have so many classic hits as well that contribute to my livelihood.

I have one more of these shows for the summer August 31 in Lincoln, CA WorldOne Concerts Presents Rewind Funk & Soul with headliner Morris Day & The Time. My set is second on the multi-act bill so get there early.
