It was a vision of musical stardom as a Detroit teen that inspired Mary Wilson, along with Diana Ross and Florence Ballard, to found one of the most successful female singing groups in recording history — The Supremes. Since then, Wilson has written a best-selling autobiography, performed on stage and screen, lectured and toured the world, and continues to be looked up to as a singer who set the standard for females in the recording industry.
This past summer, Wilson performed a number of consecutive shows at Feinstein’s at the Regency, New York’s premiere supper club. In her “Mary Wilson: Up Close” show, she wowed audiences with an intimate selection of standards and easy-listening tunes that showcased her smoky voice and vocal prowess. Wilson closed the season at the prestigious nightclub, which The New York Post called “an invaluable New York institution.”
As an original Supreme, Wilson was a much sought-after interview regarding the award-winning film, DREAMGIRLS. After covering the red carpet premiere for Extra, she endeared herself to a whole new generation of Hollywood stars and fans alike, including Golden Globe winners Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson, as well as Jamie Foxx, Beyonce, and Snoop Dogg! The success of DREAMGIRLS has also rekindled interest in Wilson’s best-selling autobiography, Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme.

Jim Brickman’s distinctive piano style and captivating live performances have revolutionized the popularity of instrumental music, making him a driving force behind modern American music.
The hit-making songwriter is the best-selling solo pianist of our time earning 21 No. 1 albums and 32 Top 20 Radio Singles in the industry bible, Billboard Magazine. He’s garnered two Grammy nominations, gospel music’s Dove Award, two SESAC Songwriter of the Year Awards, and the Canadian Country Music Award. He also has a music scholarship named for him by his alma mater, the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Music.
Born and raised in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Brickman began his music training at the age of five. But young James wouldn’t conform to the rudimentary regulations of piano lessons. “He didn’t have the knack for it,’ his first teacher would say. That didn’t discourage the tenacious pianist from creating his own unique brand of musical storytelling.
Brickman is one of pop music's most fascinating success stories. He jumped from a career as a jingle writer of famous tunes for advertising to reviving the romantic standard of the popular song. His first album release was 1995’s “No Words,” and he’s gone on to sell eight million albums worldwide.
His star-studded vocal collaborations have crossed genres to feature luminaries like, Martina McBride, Carly Simon, Lady Antebellum, Michael W. Smith, Herb Alpert, Michael Bolton, Donny Osmond, Kenny Rogers, Olivia Newton-John, Johnny Mathis, Kenny Loggins, Jane Krakowski, and a host of country, R&B, Broadway, pop, and jazz musicians.
He’s written three best-selling books, starred in four TV concert specials, and is in the 20th season of hosting the popular syndicated radio show: “The Jim Brickman Show.”
“Hope,” “Faith” and “Peace” are truly at the heart of Jim Brickman’s passionate songwriting. “I write music to be shared — to soothe, to inspire, to celebrate, to love. To me, music is the pure and simple soundtrack to life’s most memorable moments.”
As a true artist that lives and breathes the music he creates, Jim Brickman is thrilled to introduce fans to his most recent songs and perform them live in concert halls across the world.

Hattiloo Theatre's I, Too, Am America is a play in which the lives of Black historical figures like Ida B. Wells and Sojourner Truth are recounted. Four actors bring various historical events like the Montgomery Bus Boycott to life, along with scenes from significant plays including Douglas Turner Ward’s Day of Absence.
Songs corresponding with each story weave through enslaved Blacks using call and response to escape North, and Mahalia Jackson partnering with Martin Luther King Jr. in the Civil Rights Movement.
I, Too, Am America celebrates the contributions that Black people have made to American culture. It was written to entertain audiences and introduce them to significant points of history through drama and music.
A message from Kirk Whalum, Grammy-winning saxophonist:
"Kafé Kirk, The Series will bring a sophisticated, groovy, jazzy, spiritually uplifting mix of musical excitement to downtown Memphis! On designated first Sundays beginning October 2018, I will invite some of my good friends — many of whom you’re already fans of, some you absolutely will become fans of — to share an intimate evening of music at the exquisite Halloran Centre next to the Orpheum. You’ll also get an exclusive look into what exactly makes these artists who they are and what motivates them. Memphis has never had a series like this!
"If you dig Jonathan Butler or Maysa, Paul Jackson, Jr., or Michael Lington, Lindsey Webster, Euge Groove, John Stoddart, Keiko Matsui, Grace Kelly, Rick Braun, Everette Harp, or you just like discovering awesome new music, you won’t want to miss Kirk Whalum Presents, Kafé Kirk, The Series — Live at the Halloran Centre!"
About Kirk Whalum
Soulful, passionate, stirring...these are the words most often used to describe Kirk’s music. Forged from his Memphis gospel roots and his 1980's initiation into the thriving Houston nightclub scene, Kirk’s big, rich tenor sound is unmistakably his. The 80s were highlighted by Kirk’s stepping out of his blossoming sideman role and forming his own band. It was there that Kirk ultimately developed both his “voice” and songwriting in the crucible of the local club scene — especially at a rooftop club called Cody’s. It was also in Houston where jazz pianist Bob James “discovered” him and brought him on tour, which led to five successful albums with Columbia Records, including Cache, Kirk’s first No. 1 album. Kirk and Bob also received a Grammy nomination for their collaboration album, Joined at the Hip.
After moving to Los Angeles, Kirk became an in-demand session player for top artists like Barbara Streisand, Al Jarreau, Luther Vandross, Larry Carlton, Quincy Jones, and, most notably, Whitney Houston, amongst many others. It’s his sax heard on the mega-hit, “I Will Always Love You.” Kirk soon followed that career high point with his phenomenal hit album released on Warner Bros. Records, For You, perhaps the most successful of over 25 solo recordings to date. Others include his eclectic, and much-lauded, Gospel According to Jazz series, (Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4). In addition to his many solo projects, Kirk was also a member of the popular soul/jazz group, BWB, which features Kirk as the “W” of the group with Rick Braun (trumpet) and Norman Brown (guitar).

Dustbowl Revival is an Americana and soul band with eight full-time members who mash the sounds of New Orleans funk, bluegrass, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. The band was founded in 2008 in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, California.
Dustbowl just recorded their fourth studio album with Grammy Award-winning producer (Old Crow Medicine Show, Dropkick Murphy's) and Flogging Molly founding member Ted Hutt, to come out on Signature Sounds this summer. While the band launched with an old-time style and deeper bluegrass roots (a fateful Craigslist ad got it all started), they recently departed toward a more modern soul sound, still with their mixture of New Orleans swing, Americana, a little blues, and roots-rock. The soul-dipped first single of their new collaboration, came out on a 45 with a music video at the end of 2016, with a premiere via Relix Magazine.
Over the last five years Dustbowl has become known for their free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining their funk rhythm and brass section with a fast-picking string band section.

With Carter Girl, Carlene Carter once and for all proclaims who she is.
Her first album for Rounder, it features songs spanning the Carter Family generations, including celebrated Carter Family songs like “Gold Watch And Chain,” and others written and performed by the descendants of the original Carter trio — including Carlene herself.
Not that she’s ever shied away from being the heiress to the legacy of country music’s foremost family. “I always include at least one Carter Family song, or one written in the Carter Family spirit,” says Carlene, citing as a pertinent example “Spider Lace,” which appeared on her deeply personal last album, Stronger (2008).
“I wrote it thinking of the Carter Family’s flowery lyrics and romantic themes,” she says, noting, too, that the Carter Family catalog is heavy both on songs of faith and far darker fare. Turning to Carter Girl, she notes that all these facets of the Carter Family’s pioneering work which are reflected in a stunning album achievement that honors her ancestors while confirming her proud place among them.
She is, of course, the daughter of 1950s country superstar Carl Smith and June Carter Cash, who was herself the daughter of Maybelle Carter — “Mother” Maybelle Carter of the original Carter Family trio that formed in 1927 in the tiny Southwest Virginia hamlet of Maces Springs. Along with Mother Maybelle’s brother-in-law, A. P. Carter, and his wife and her cousin Sara, the Carter Family recorded such seminal country music songs as "Can The Circle Be Unbroken (By And By)," "Wildwood Flower" and "Keep On The Sunny Side,” and forever influenced the development of bluegrass, folk, pop, gospel and rock music genres, as well as country music.
Emmy Award-winning trumpeter, composer, and educator Orbert Davis is co-founder, conductor, and artistic director of Chicago Jazz Philharmonic (CJP), a 55+ piece symphonic jazz orchestra dedicated to bringing together audiences of diverse backgrounds through multi-genre projects. Over the past 30 years, Mr. Davis’ mission-driven career has evolved successfully from ‘making it in the music industry’ to being a true leader in Chicago’s arts and culture community. He is widely respected in not only all things JAZZ, but also for the distinctive ability to use his musical talents to make positive impacts on society through arts education and advocacy.
In 1998 Davis founded "Jazz Alive," the Arts Education outreach arm of Chicago Jazz Philharmonic is an interdisciplinary enrichment program that focuses on teaching life and academic skills through music and the Arts. Currently running in 12 Chicago Public Schools, the program also seeks to create and develop "jazz bands" at the elementary school level. In addition to the music education work that CJP does, Davis also co-owns and operates Discover Music: Discover Life, Inc. a company that develops curriculum and implements programs that use music to teach academic and life skills.
Orbert has many composer commissions to his credit and has played key roles in major film and television projects, including his work as jazz consultant to Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes for the feature film Road to Perdition starring Tom Hanks and Paul Newman. Other projects include Home and Away, commissioned by The Boeing Company to honor our U.S. men and women in uniform, and an original score for the Emmy Award-winning national PBS documentary DuSable to Obama: Chicago's Black Metropolis produced by WTTW, where Orbert garnered his Emmy Award for its soundtrack.
Additionally, Orbert was featured in the critically acclaimed documentary "Beauty Rises: Four Lives in the Arts," also produced by WTTW and the Illinois Arts Council, and "Concierto for Generation I", a work commissioned by Nissan/Infiniti, inspired by the 2007 Infiniti G35 Sedan. “Concierto for Generation I” was part of a 2007 “Infiniti In Black” national advertising campaign which included a 2-page full-color ad of Orbert and the G35 Sedan in the Ebony, Vibe, Essence, and Black Enterprise magazines, as well as online video documentary presentations.
