and Special Guests

Jay Bee has been singing all his life. A staple on the Twin Cities music scene for two decades. His incredible voice and stage presence has made him one of the busiest musicians in the city, and with Urban Classic and The Routine, Jay Bee continues to entertain local audiences wherever he performs.

Erica West is strong, confident, and sultry right out of the box. Her striking looks and mesmerizing vocals make an immediate impression on the senses. In a uniquely captivating way, Erica brings a beautiful fusion of soulful R&B, pop, jazz and blues-inspired melodies to the microphone. But do not let her silky vocals fool you. Erica’s vocal style is both powerful and sultry, influenced by female vocalists such as Barbara Streisand, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Nina Simone, Shirley Horn, Roberta Flack, Sarah Vaughan, Lizz Wright, Goapele and Jill Scott.

Patricia Lacy had the privilege of recording and touring with Luther Vandross for two decades. Her participation in this show gives the performance an authenticity that cannot be duplicated. Patricia is currently touring and performing with Sounds of Blackness and is recording a new gospel album for release in 2024.

“The most authentic and entertaining tribute to Vandross I’ve ever seen. What a spectacular evening!” — Leon Wilkers, R&B Weekly
