Double Duty at CONVO-PALOOZA: CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS & MAMF SILENT AUCTION FUNDRAISERBandtastic4

This friday past I had the ultimate pleasure to grace the Avani Lounge stage with Holly Charles and Bandtastic4 in celebration of the first annual CONVO-PALOOZA: CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS & MAMF SILENT AUCTION FUNDRAISER for the Make-A-Mark Foundation.  From 5p-10p people congregated and appreciated art from talented visual artists [SEAN D. BLANCO & co], fashion accessory artists, culinary artists [MYFIT FOODS and REGAR MARLEY’S JAMAICAN CUISINE-trust it’s good], and music artists.

First up was Holly Charles.  Sultry tunes to calm the tones of the room.  I played along with some fellow TCWW musicians [Todd Harrison, Chuckii Taylor, and Charles Johnson]…three familiar songs [He loves me by Jill Scott, Brown Skin by Indie.Arie and This Christmas by Donny Hathaway] caught the attention of the crowd.

The next music artist to hit the stage was Tamar Davis.  Not backed by a band but still managed to move the crowd (which is definitely possible).

Bandtastic4 went on stage with a fill-in drummer Dale Meadows.  Nice mustard trap set.  We did well.
