About Jocelyn Brown:
Jocelyn Brown is a revered vocalist in the world of Soul, Disco, Funk
& House music from her work with Salsoul Records, Inner Life,
Incognito, Todd Terry, MAW’s NuYorican Soul & her own solo work.

Jocelyn Brown is a woman with a powerful, soul shaking voice that
reaches out with extended arms and engulfs your musical desires.

“I Got The Power” a sample of Jocelyn’s voice Snap’s international one
single “The Power”, totally astonished the Artiste herself when
arriving in a club for a performance and hearing her voice repeatedly.
She witnessed, first hand, the audience’s response to the powerful
vocals featured on this hit. “I think it is great that people love and
use my voice”, says Jocelyn, “as long as I can make people happy with
it, I feel like I am doing my job!”

And doing her job she is! In fact this seasonal musical veteran began
singing in public at the age of three in the church, and at gig’s with
her family. She then first gained national attention with the release
of her debut album for Warner Brothers Records “One From The Heart” in
1984. With cuts produced by Jellybean Benitez and the teams of Hubert
Eaves/ James Batton and Russ Titleman/Rob Mounsey, Jocelyn featured
eight powerful cuts which include hits like “Love’s Gonna Get You” and
the perennial Club Classical “Somebody Else’s Guy” written by Jocelyn
and her sister Annette.

However, as modest as she is, Jocelyn has established quite an
impressive portfolio working with stellar names such as Luther
Vandross, Bette Midler, John Lennon, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson,
Roberta Flack, George Benson, Teddy Pendergrass, Culture Club, Masters
At Work & many others.

No dress codeA strictly 18 and over event.About Marsha Ambrosius:
“What is there not to say about “The Songstress?” Talented
singer-songwriter, incredible live performer, revered platinum-selling
artist, Grammy® nominated and after over a decade in the music game,
Marsha Ambrosius is still here. Telling her story, captivating
audiences with a perfected freshness and proving that good music will
always prevail. Now two years after her solo debut Late Nights & Early
Mornings, Marsha Ambrosius is ready to take you on a journey once
again with her highly-anticipated sophomore album Friends & Lovers.Hailing from Liverpool, England, fans first got a taste of Marsha’s
talent as the singing half of the duo Floetry. Their 2000 debut
Floetic produced signature singles like “Say Yes” and “Getting Late”
as well as four Grammy nods. Following the 2005 release of their
second studio album, Flo’Ology, the ladies veered creatively and
personally. While the split was difficult, Marsha continued to build a
name for herself as a songwriter and producer, penning “Butterflies”
for the late Michael Jackson and other hits for artists such as Alicia
Keys, Justin Timberlake, Jamie Foxx and Nas, and was honored by BMI as
their Songwriter of the Year.In 2009 Marsha signed to J Records and her solo debut Late Nights &
Early Mornings was released in 2011. The album debuted at #1 on the US
Billboard Hot R&B Charts and #2 on the US Billboard Hot 200 behind
Adele and ahead of Mumford & Sons; the first time in over 20 years
that British Acts had topped the US charts. The album also produced
hit singles “Hope She Cheats On You” and “Far Away” which landed
Marsha two more Grammy® nods for a total of six nominations. She also
won the Centric Award at the 2011 BET Awards, won Record of The Year
(Ashford & Simpson Songwriters Award) at the 2011 Soul Train Awards
for “Far Away,” and capped off 2011 with a performance at the White
House for The President and First Family at The National Christmas
Tree Lighting. Marsha was also nominated for Best Female R&B Artist at
the 2012 BET Awards.Dedicating most of her 2012 to making new magic in the studio, Marsha
kicked of 2013 with a string of critically acclaimed live shows and
released new single “Cold War,” produced by Diplo and Maxime Picard,
the first single from her new album Friends & Lovers. Marsha calls the
album an autobiography of her past relationships. “Friends & Lovers is
to be listened to responsibly,” Marsha jokingly says. “Because you
don’t know who will end up becoming a friend or will end up being a
lover. It might be the wrong one so that whole album explores the
decisions that were made in my life that made these songs possible.”Marsha Ambrosius on Youtube:
