Michael C Lewis Soul Jazz Experience in Providence
I want to thank all of my great friends in Providence, Rhode Island for their support and love during my time there in July. I had the pleasure of working with RPM Voices Rhode Island as a guest artist, band conductor and arranger. I spent a full week there that culminated in a wonderful performance at their annual Gospel Brunch on July 9! I want to thank my good friends Dr. Clarice Laverne Thompson and Shaunne Thomas for inviting me to participate again this year. I went back to Providence on July 14 to be a headliner at The Sound Session Festival. The Festival was great and the crowd and atmosphere was electric. I used a local rhythm section which included Paul Williams-guitar, Paul Bouley-piano, Ken Carpenter-drums, and Erick Cifuentes-drums. They did an incredible job and I look forward to working with them again in the Providence – Boston area in the near future. Now it’s time to recharge myself spiritually and physically. I will run the Intimate Journey Campaign through August 31, so if you have not made your pledge please do so today. It’s going to be a great project and you get a chance to be a major part of it. Starting in September I want to focus on completing the project and getting the latest Soul Jazz stylings in your hands! I am very excited about things right now. Your support and appreciation of my music and performances have me brimming with confidence. You are making it happen. Together we are going to have an impact on music and culture! Let’s continue to enjoy the Intimate Journey! God Bless!
