Join us on Monday, January 27th for The First Rendezvous of 2014 and enjoy special live performances from Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and musician Geno Young. Mr. Young is an alumnus of Dallas, Texas’ Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts-which has turned out a most impressive cavalcade of artists including heavyweights like Erykah Badu, Roy Hargrove, RC Williams, Robert “Sput” Searight, and others. With two critically-acclaimed releases, “The Ghetto Symphony” and “Ear Hustler”, Geno has left his indelible imprint on music lovers and artists across the globe.
Urban Folk Music Duo Love & Evolution!
Together Jordan and Semaj are an amazing music duo: Love & Evolution. The name symbolizes two people who love each other and are united in their purpose to move beyond revolution to evolution and to focus on love not hate. They have boiled their music down to its most natural form: Urban Folk. Love & Evolution is the voice of the common person that strives and struggles for a better life. The music offers a serious yet entertaining look at society and culture. When the message of Love & Evolution is felt people realize that they are part of something bigger that is united by peace. Love & Evolution embodies the soulful message and drive of Richie Havens, the undeniable energy and emotion of Janice Joplin, the tactful strum patterns of Bob Dylan, and the chanting mechanism of Simon & Garfunkel.
and Introducing Amalia Watty
Based in New York City, by way of Anguilla, (Singer/ Songwriter) Amalia Watty debut single ‘Cry Sometimes’ features sunny horns and a smooth baseline setting the mood for a Badu-esque yet distinctively unique, jazzy vocal tone as she offers sympathetic encouragement to the ‘girl in the mirror’ that although the downside of love is heartbreak, ‘Its Ok to Cry Sometimes’. We are excited to hear more and she will not disappoint at The Rendezvous!
All artists are backed by The Rendezvous House Band, The Uptown Trio!
