In The Name of Love 17th Annual Musical Tribute Honoring Dr Martin Luther King Jr

This year’s MLK Musical Tribute will be on Sunday, Jan. 20th, 7pm at the Oakland Scottish Rite Center. The tribute will be entitled “Rhythm and Blues and the Civil Rights Movement” and will feature outstanding vocalists Jeanie Tracy, Kev Choice, Ms. Faye Carol, Terrie Odabi and Alvon Johnson along with a stellar band including Kev Choice on piano, Scott Thompson on bass, Daria Shanai Johnson on drums, and Alvon Johnson on guitar. Also on the program will be the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir with Konda Mason, Co-founder and CEO of Impact Hub Oakland, serving as Mistress of Ceremonies. The City of Oakland Humanitarian Award will be presented to an outstanding Oakland citizen working tirelessly to make a difference. Over the past 14 years, Living Jazz has provided FREE music education to Oakland public elementary schools serving high percentages of low-income families (Title One) through the Living Jazz Children’s Project (LJCP). Over 4,500 2-3rd graders have now benefited from LJCP and as a result, have had the life changing opportunity to perform as the opening act at “In the Name of Love”, Oakland’s only non-denominational Musical Tribute honoring Dr. King, one of the many programs Living Jazz has produced since 1984. This year’s goal will be to raise $20,000 to support LJCP. Schools that have benefited from LJCP include Glenview, Carl B. Munk, Cleveland, Fruitvale, Manzanita SEED, Howard, and Garfield elementary.

CHELLE And Friends My Darling New Orleans Mardi Gras Show   Saturday Feb 23   $20/Advance, $25/Day of Show

CHELLE And Friends My Darling New Orleans Mardi Gras Show

Ask 20 people how to define the music of New Orleans and you’ll get 30 different answers. It could be jazz, funk, soul, Creole, Cajun, or gospel, Caribbean, African, Zydeco, rock or the chants and stirring rhythms of the Mardi Gras Indians. Join CHELLE! And Friends on a magical soul shakin’ tour of the music and history of African Americans in NOLA as Rhythmix Cultural Works presents My Darling New Orleans: A Mardi Gras Show with CHELLE! And Friends. From Blues to the Mardi Gras Indians, CHELLE! And Friends delivers a stewpot of musical gumbo that is sweet, spicy, aromatic and definitely intoxicating. CHELLE! and Friends is made up of some of the most distinguished and accomplished musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area, including New Orleans native, and Oakland’s own “Queen of New Orleans Music”, Michelle Jacques. As artistic director and founder, Chelle brings together some very special friends to perform music that is vibrant and alive with the driving voices of Rhonda Crane, Jay Lamont and Bryan Dyer, Donna Viscuso on woodwinds, Eric Swinerman on guitar, Kevin Scott on bass and Michaelle Goerlitz on drums. Although the repertoire includes gospel, folk, blues, and pop songs from around the country, New Orleans music in its many varieties – jazz, R&B, swamp pop, and Mardi Gras Indian music, among them – has been the group’s focus since its inception in early 2005. Preserving those sounds became an even more urgent mission after Hurricane Katrina stuck the Crescent City later that year. This musically rich performance transcends ethnic boundaries, uplifts, brings news, protests, motivates and honors our richness and diversity.

When: Saturday Feb 23

Where: 2513 Blanding Ave Alameda CA

Admission: $20/Advance, $25/Day of Show
