Showcasing many artists on the same bill is becoming very popular in a good way for the stars and for the fans. The idea of artist who all hold high artistic rankings, coming together willingly to share the same stage, is a great example of unity within music performances today. “Ladies Night R&B Super Jam”, has not only proven the above but also allowed for seasoned and legendary artists to revamp major careers and seriously aid in bringing back real music with feeling.
It was no surprise that the Verizon Center in Washington DC was packed with audience members who perfectly fit in the age category of “The Grown and Sexy”. The concert fell on Mother’s day and yes, there were many mother and daughter duos but even more couples and groups of women actually living out the ladies night theme of the night. The setting was right for the occasion and the vibe was nice. Warm colored lighting placed all over the stage, three large digital screens to bring you even closer to the action, and WKYS 93.9’s own DJ QuickSilva spinning the hottest jams in between each act, completed the full package of an overall great concert.
Nine artists: BlackStreet, Total, Black Rob, Jodeci, Faith Evans, 112, The Lox, and El Debarge, with the exception of Carl Thomas (who unfortunately had to cancel), all came out with an equal amount of excitement and expectation from all the fans who seemed to be able to recite each song word for word. All of the artists left lasting musical impressions but certain artists made significant statements such as: “The Lox” who have all separately established themselves as successful solo artists, joining forces together again rocking their set and “Jodeci”, who gave a unique, in person experience with tons of enthusiasm as they belted out some of their most famous hits. However, our top three stand out performances came from Faith Evans, who had the best vocal performance of the night. 112 who’s vocal harmony and dance routines were on point, and the favorite of the night, the vocally smooth and wonderfully charming El Debarge who was stellar in every aspect, despite his set having to be cut due to him being last, with the venue’s ending time in full effect! …..Oh and we can’t forget to acknowledge the pleasurable tease from the Bad Boy Artists on this show, who rose the excitement levels of what to expect from the highly anticipated Bad Boy Reunion concert at Brooklyn, New York’s Barclay’s Center coming up on the 20th of May.
Proof of a sold out show in Brookly, NY at the Barclay’s Center on Valentine’s Day, and a packed house here in Washington, DC at the Verizon Center on Mother’s Day, is enough to make sure to catch the next “Ladies Night R&B Super Jam” whenever it may be in a city near you.
