Jazz in Pink: Women Making Music a Choice Celebrates 10 Years with Its First Annual Event, Featuring on the Panel Melissa Manchester
Jazz in Pink turns 10 and will be celebrating with a concert, vendors, a panel discussion including Melissa Manchester, Eloise Laws, Kaylene Peoples, and others discussing the current music industry, followed by a jam session, and a raffle.
"This event celebrates a group of female musicians who have given women a platform to perform their original music and this is just a time to celebrate those women and their musical accomplishments." - Jackie Goodson Smith, Co-Founder
Jazz in Pink was formed in 2008, and has enjoyed performances across the country and abroad with over 50 musicians and vocalists that compose, arrange, and produce music in the genre of smooth jazz; Their stage performances combine a variety of musical styles, including classical, funk, gospel, Latin, World, and jazz.
"Jazz in Pink is contemporary jazz music with a beat, generally not too fast, not too slow, but grooving music that you can sit at your desk and enjoy if you're a corporate person. We take solos. The live shows of course are much more edgy. We can play up-tempo and some really touching ballads. When our harpist first came to us, she was doing wedding music, songs like "On the Wings of Love." Now she's doing Curtis Mayfield. And she got dancers!" - Gail Jhonson quoted from Schmooze Jazz Magazine
This celebration serves as a networking opportunity for women in the music industry to share resources and information, and to create new performance and career opportunities. Author/journalist Sheryl Aronson will be moderating a panel with recording artists Melissa Manchester and Eloise Laws; international musician Kat Dyson; recording artist and media/image consultant Kaylene Peoples; radio personality Jazzy Rita; booking agent Barbara Collin; and promotion/management expert Kyna Hubbard. The panelists will be discussing topics about helping women succeed in music.
