From Be-Bop to Doo-Wop to “conscious Hip-Hop”, the “SCAT to RAP” Family Music Festival will include the wide spectrum of the African American musical legacy and continuum including Gospel, Blues, Reggae, Spoken Word and Oral History narratives (Allensworth Family, and Buffalo Soldiers), and will indeed be a family affair that bridges the generation gap. The roster of performing artists includes: Brandi Kane, Nipsey Hussle, Ras Indio, 4 With God, Lady Tee, Diego Red, Sistem, Ms. Toi, and many more. Special invited guests include “First Lady of Jazz” Barbara Morrison, Professor Griff of Public Enemy; Bili Redd; and Teddy Lee Hooker. The “SCAT To RAP” Family Music Festival is a fundraiser for the emancipated youth (youth aging out of the foster care system) of Los Angeles, Tulare and Kern Counties with proceeds going towards their financial benefit. The general admission ticket price is $15.00. Tickets can be purchased online http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/162407 (call WE CAN Fdn. for Amtrack discount. Amtrack stops directly at Allensworth).

Mr Washington regarding our conversation last Friday, I have a Blues , R&B based music group consisting of 6 to 7 persons if I include my Harmonica player. Please visit Stinginsweetmusic.com to see my musical foundation. I will be sending you updated version of my musical lineup including my new keyboard player. We discussed playing for someone else and if so we need to at least referance their music. Also in knowing the gas prices I quoted between $300.00 n $500.00. I think $450.00 with food and drink would be resonable,due to the distance we must travel. Thanks so much for considering me and my musicians. Please let me know what you have decided as soon as possible. I can be reached at 559-392-2865. Thank you so much Beverly H Greene aka Baby Bee
