ABBEY LINCOLN said "I no longer scream about my life...I sing." Although there is plenty to scream about these days, I'm honoring her advice next Saturday, August 30th with Deron Johnson (piano), Tony Austin (drums), Edwin Livingston (bass) and Kamasi Washington (sax) at the RHYTHM AND JOY FESTIVAL in Warner Center Park, Woodland Hills. It's a short set that begins at 12:45pm sharp, so get there early.
RAJ 14 Festival, founded by Rickie Byars Beckwith, is a soulful celebration of the impact of music as a catalyst for change. I had the pleasure of participating last year, and am honored to be a part of the festival this year. RAJ will be filled with conscious beautiful people of all ages with wonderful activities and performances...musicians, artists, the healing arts, a sustainable marketplace, the Kid's Village and more.
RAJ Festival is FREE...but there are also VIP packages available for reserved seating, parking, etc!!! The festival will be held at the Valley Cultural Center at the beautiful Lou Bredlow Pavilion in Warner Park at 5800 Topanga Canyon Blvd., in Woodland Hills. There is plenty of room for a late afternoon picnic with the family while being entertained. See you there!!! RAJ ON!!! #RAJ14
