The Awakening Tour

KEVIN ROSS

Doors: 7:30 pm / Show: 8:00 pm

OPENING ACT: LYRIC JONES

Kevin Ross

Kevin Ross had never felt more alive. The singer had gone from performing once every three months to opening for R&B/Soul legend Maxwell five times a week, and his nostalgia-flecked, soul-drenched repertoire resonated with audiences. In demand, he swiftly released an EP (Dialogue in the Grey) boasting features from Ne-Yo and T.I., produced and performed a song for a national commercial (Glade) and was tapped for a spot on Ne-Yo’s sold-out tour—all in the same year. He’d been praying, asking if he should really be an artist, and the answer seemed to be a resounding “yes.”

And then suddenly, Ross found himself in a career desert.

“It felt dark and dismal to have this great peak, then sink again. I didn’t know what was next” the Washington, D.C. native says now. “But someone told me that to be great, you have to go through great things—not just great wins, but great tragedy. It’s about getting back into the fight no matter how dinged up you get.”

In the wake of that struggle, Ross has emerged stronger and more determined than ever. Praised by ABC as having an “expansive, entrancing and enigmatic modern R&B style,” the singer was named “Best New R&B Artist” of 2014 by AOL and was the ASCAP’s 2016 Rhythm and Soul Award Winner. He’s been featured on NBA spots, Grey’s Anatomy and called a “one-man quartet” by okayplayer. “Long Song Away,” a love song that’s kissed by Ross’ sweet vocals and just begging for a slow dance, quickly racked up almost half a million views on Youtube, cracked Top 3 on Urban Adult Contemporary radio. And he shows no signs of backing down: To the delight of his 100,000+ followers on Facebook and 71,000+ followers on Instagram, this year he’ll head back out on tour with another one of R&B’s most promising ones-to-watch, Ro James.  READ MORE.

GRAMMY©-award winning singer-songwriter

AN EVENING WITH JUDY COLLINS

Doors: 7:30 pm / Show: 8:00 pm

Judy Collins

Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, Wildflowers, has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Judy’s dreamy and sweetly intimate version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical A Little Night Music,won “Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards. She’s garnered several top-ten hits gold- and platinum-selling albums. Recently, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, and Leonard Cohen honored her legacy with the album Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.

Judy began her impressive music career at 13 as a piano prodigy dazzling audiences performing Mozart’s “Concerto for Two Pianos,” but the hardluck tales and rugged sensitivity of folk revival music by artists such as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger seduced her away from a life as a concert pianist. Her path pointed to a lifelong love affair with the guitar and pursuit of emotional truth in lyrics. The focus and regimented practice of classical music, however, would be a source of strength to her inner core as she navigated the highs and lows of the music business.  READ MORE.

Two New Books Expose The Shocking Truth Behind UFOs, Extraterrestrials, Roswell And Zero-Point-Energy

Washington, DC, July 14, 2017 ― Seventy years after the cover-up of three interstellar craft downed over Roswell Army Air Force Base in New Mexico, two new books and a documentary reveal the shocking truth about covert programs and why the UFO subject remains taboo… even up to the President and Congress!

“It’s not about whether these interstellar craft are real,” states Dr. Steven M. Greer, considered by many to be the world’s foremost authority on the subject. The author of Unacknowledged: An Expose of the World’s Greatest Secret (book), and the executive producer of a new documentary by the same name, has collected testimonials from hundreds of eyewitnesses in the military, Intel agencies, the FAA, NASA, and private defense contractors that expose 70 years of lies. “This is about USAPs ,” Dr. Greer explains. “Unacknowledged Special Access Projects operating illegally outside of Presidential or Congressional oversight, covertly funded over decades by trillions of our tax dollars. What really keeps the subject taboo and outside of the mainstream media are the energy technologies we acquired from these downed vessels – specifically zero-point-energy which would replace fossil fuels. We’re talking about a free, clean energy source that would end hunger and poverty, reverse Climate Change, and create millions of new jobs.”

As the editor of Unacknowledged, New York Times best-selling author Steve Alten was given access to these testimonials and used the information to pen his just-released fictional thriller, Undisclosed,  in an attempt to disseminate the truth to the public in digestible bites. “Jimmy Kimmel had President Clinton and President Obama on his talk show and asked both men about UFOs, ETs, and Area 51. They both smiled and poked fun at the subject. But Dr. Greer, the expert who submitted briefings to both administrations as well as members of congress, the CIA Director and the Joint Chiefs, will probably never be allowed on Kimmel or any major talk show to discuss this – not because Jimmy Kimmel wouldn’t love to interview him, but because the Intel Agencies refuse to allow it on mainstream media.”

Dr. Greer adds, “Unacknowledged was either the #1 documentary or close to #1 on itunes nearly every week since its release, and it’s never mentioned. I flew out to Los Angeles and did a two-hour interview with an entertainment reporter at Breitbart News, only to have the Intel Agency that determines what’s allowed to be published cancel it.”

Steve Alten agrees. “There’s information in both Unacknowledged and Undisclosed that pulls back the curtain on seventy years of lies, including testimonials from people who have worked in black ops subterranean bases which hold ARVs (Alien Reproduction Vehicles) capable of interstellar travel. Many of these witnesses who held above-top secret clearances would not allow Dr. Greer to publish this information until after they passed on, out of fear. Who could blame them?”

Just how untouchable is the UFO-ET subject?

“I spoke to people very close to Alex Jones,” Dr. Greer said. “I was told the subject was ‘too controversial to touch.’ This from the guy who claimed the Sandy Hook shooting was fake!”
