Jody Watley. Detroit Sound Board with Tony Tone Toni Recap.

Jody Watley with Tony! Toni! Tone! for the second time, for another funky fabulous and stylish evening.

Loved the venue, totally state of the art! Lots of positive feedback on my various social media pages and as always I appreciate those who come out and support the live music experience. The audience was reserved at first, a sense of ‘judgement’ is always in the air especially with a certain demographic.. some people who come to judge me (what’s she giving? is she any good? what does she look like…. and of course SRL who join me on a couple of my Shalamar classics before we move on. Nate is also a show man and the combination of Nate with John ‘Havic’ Gregory is a hit with fans loving the new vibes.. in the end they always end up having a good time, and receiving the positive vibes. Visit my Instagram and Facebook pages for more some of the fan videos I’ve shared.

Admittedly, I have a certain dislike for people being on their phones and filming the show..short snippets are ok, good angles preferred. In this case many did capture the full stage rather than zooming in on just me. What I know is most are always surprised I don’t just come out and sing my hits..I bring a level of production, glamour, spontaneity and a lot of heart and some inspiration added in.

A July Weekend Experience

Next Friday July 19 it’s a disco themed  Jody Watley LIVE at New York’s legendary Summerstage concert series – I’ll be taking the stage in Staten Island, a first the location is Corporal Thompson Park. City Parks put on first class events so this will be no different with Deejay Joey Carvello from Mobile Monday’s spinning classic disco vinyl, dance lessons from world renowned Waacking Queen Princess Lockeroo as well. Look for a bit more Shalamar than I normally do with SRL and of course some choice cuts from my own eclectic solo repertoire including the current single “Good Good Reason” nu-disco soul vibes.

On Saturday night the party lands in Bethesda, Maryland at Bethesda Blues and Jazz “Celebrating 30 Years Of Real Love” and beyond. I’m full of gratitude to continue to be blessed to do what I love and share the gift of music and still be fabulous.

The set list will be different because of the theme, expect it to be full of love – funky and sexy .. yes those can go together. See you there! Get tickets now! Tickets Instant Seats

New Video Upload. Jody Watley and SRL In Amsterdam.

Jody Watley & Shalamar Reloaded (when doing the Shalamar cuts) SRL (the group new music) did the damn thing at another sold out show in Amsterdam April 20, 2019. The high energy show consisted of Jody Watley solo hits and new music, a fabulous disco section with hits from my Shalamar days – and new hit music by Jody Watley & SRL. The guys Nate Allen Smith and John ‘Havic’ Gregory joined me for the finale for a spirited dance off. After the show, it was nice to spend time with everyone.
