Brandon James and Nolen Entertainment Presents Soulful Sundays

September 22, 2019

Soulful Sunday’s been on my radar for sometime now and everyone who love’s music the way I do should have been in the building this incredible Soulful Sunday. Brandon James and Nolen Entertainment has sparked again, with amazing talent. The entertainment was phenomenal at the Debonaire Social Club 1575 N Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago IL, Hosted By Ron Baker Jr.

Brandon James really puts on an amazing show, so soulful and smooth he really knows how to move the crowd, with the notes that comes from within. The band is amazing great production and very skillful that’s some entertainment that deserves to be on every stage.

What I really respected about this event they had Hip-Hop Artist DiLLAnoiZ from SCG Records I can say I was feeling the bars and the production, he really puts on a good show. It was a good vibe, I appreciate good quality rap not all the gun violence and street music. I can tell DiLLAnoiZ has his on lane,I wanna wish him success on his music career.

Mary J. Blige Gives An Amazing Show At Ravinia Festival 2019

Ravinia Festival 2019 was an outstanding festival this year, September 13, 2019 Mary J. Blige made a stop to Highland Park IL, and blazed the stage. The Royalty Tour was a blast I’ve been following the tour reviews and Mary J. Blige had a good amount of sold out shows this run. Ravinia is an outdoor venue with great acoustics and provides great music and hospitality. The Band of Mary J. Blige was phenomenal, under the Music Direction  of Rex Hardy Jr.(Drummer).

Rex Hardy Jr, Is an outstanding drummer and arranger whose played for many stars, I was impressed on the drum kit he played on this royalty run. It’s amazing to not worry about getting the kit put together for every show when you have an amazing Backline Tech Brandon Tigner Sr  The hit song’s from You remind me, I can Love you Better, Real Love, Not Gon’ Cry. The sound was amazing, it was like when she was recording the record. It was filled with an amazing crowd with different nationalities all coming together enjoying good music. Mary J. Blige is definitely the Queen. The crowd was singing every word to her songs, you just had to be there.

Mary J, Blige wardrobe was incredible, even the stage setup was amazing and she had background dancers with her show. What a sold out show even if you wasn’t in the venue, you enjoyed yourself on the lawn. You had beautiful people having picnics with family and  just a great time. A FIVE STAR CONCERT AN AMAZING TIME WITH RAVINIA!!!!

The Quest Chronicles: What Do You Want?

What do you want? Chicken or Fish? Stay in or go out? Make love or rough sex? Single or Taken has even been a complicated QUESTion! Sometimes you have to look in the mirror and ask, who am I, what do I like, what turns me on, what I do want, what do I need, better yet, what do I deserve?

To a certain extent like Lauren Hill said ” It can all be so simple, but you’ll rather make it hard.” Life ain’t easy but it doesn’t has to have so many complications if we take control the proper way. So many single individuals are always searching for that one but barely know and understand self. If someone is to ask you personal questions and on average your answers are “I don’t know, I’m not sure, never even thought about it, there’s a problem. How can someone get to fully know you if you don’t even know yourself? How can you jump into a new relationship without fully closing the chapter on the last one?  How can you try to find a doctor to heal your hurt if you can’t explain the symptoms and pain?

When is comes to business, many want to be entrepreneurs but don’t even know the basics. “I want to be a boss” but do you even know how to lead? “I want to own a business” but have you even written out a blueprint or business plan? Do you have the proper funds or enough knowledge to even get it off the ground? These are questions we need to think about.

Yes, we live in a society that is very fast pace especially in the world of technology but everyone can’t keep up.  When was the last time you sat down, turn off all devices & did some self reflecting? Do you even know yourself? You say you want a relationship but are you ready for one? If you’re in a relationship, are you giving it your all & or are you putting yourself on the back burner?

As for myself, I’m tied into so much as far as business, music & personal life that I didn’t realize things weren’t progressing the way I hoped. So what did I do, I stopped everything & did a reset on life. I had a hard self reflecting and was honest enough to recognize the issues and started to work on a way to fix them. We have one life so I desired to make the best of it. So if it takes me not going out or not dating to figuring out ME, my finances, goals & life all together then so be it. I owe it to mySELF!

To wrap this up, I just want you to look at where you’re at, where you’re trying to go & sacrifice some time to rewrite a plan so you can start living the life you want, desire & need. I say all this because I care. I want to see everyone exceed.

This is Ms Gotta Love Me herself, it’s T-Quest Tuesday & you’ve just been Questified! Show love by commenting, sharing & following me on social media at TQuestGLM

I Dream Of $ Jigi $ by DJ Layne Luv

…And just like the Jeannie from the tv show her “image” caters to the fantasy of the male wishes (and some females too lol) but seriously that is not any of her concern. The true business woman from Dayton Ohio is focused on the check daily and very little else in the way of drama or negativity. Her name is Jigi Deniro as in Spanish currency. Her movement you ask? Pretty Pesos. The rest is self explanatory.

These days everybody says they’re about the check, but what caught my attention was Jigi’s consistency. It’s one thing to constantly flood a social media timeline, but to do it in a versatile way that shows your skills, grind, hustle, and doesn’t bore the audience…now that’s saying something. For example, early risers can catch her on Wright State University’s Hip Hop WakeUp Radio on 106.9fm bringing sunshine to her loyal listeners and informing them on all the latest happenings with Ohio Hip Hop artists. You might also see her at a fund raising event empowering the youth to stay in school. And for the people involved in the night life, Jigi heavily promotes Plush Adult Night Life ENT. 

Being that she was from Ohio, I wanted to do more than interview her, I wanted to be a part of the Jigi Deniro brand. So, I called her up one day and asked her if I could have the number to her manager and the information on who does all of her marketing and branding. She replied “You’re speaking to her. That would be me, me & me” LOL! I also asked her if she wouldn’t mind being a part of a worldwide organization that promotes a represents artist in every state (Fleet DJs). She said “Are you kidding me or what?…yeah I’m down.” After speaking with Aaron and presenting her artist press package, it was a go. Jigi became an official Fleet Artist. 

But please don’t judge her by what you see on the surface. Jigi is from good stock and receives love and support from her parents and the rest of her family. I asked her if her folks were ever uncomfortable about her promoting adult entertainment (dem skrippers) and she stated “Of course, any parent wants to protect their child from the pitfalls of this world, but they know that Jigi is grown at the end of the day, that means Jigi got her own bills to pay.” …she adds “But I receive so much love and support from my family, my mother especially”

What most may not know, is that even though Jigi is from Ohio she developed her HU$TLE down south at good ol Tennessee State University. She says “Attending school down there really opened me up to diversity and life outside of my Ohio bubble. When you’ve got all that talent in one area from New York, Chicago Atlanta, and California, different personalities are going to influence creativity and you give some and you take some, but it’s all there to develop what you’re trying to become.” I want to give a shout out to my HBCU family because I still carry those connections to this day….

She’s very witty. I asked how she feels when she thinks people might think she’s doing too much…and already speaking in third person she responds…“Jigi got a whole lotta Plan A’s “ I bust out laughing. “No for real…All my Plan A’s bring in some sort of revenue or income stream for me” 

She has a single out now entitled Y.E.S. being pushed by The Fleet DJ’s however, please go to her youtube channel and check out her other two hot songs “Lost Count” and “Lingo” ft D. Seanny 

Be sure to follow her on all of the social media sites because her star is rising and she shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
