People Are Saying...




"The LADY JAZ Project opened the show with its’ unique style of gospel funk, urban contemporary music.  The band features Lady Jaz on the lead vocals with backup singers Sharhonda Ruffin Fatiha Powell and Arameya Scott.  Rick Smith on guitar, Willie G. Martin Jr. and Kevin Cain on the bass, and Robert Scott and Brian Colquitt on the drums. (MUSIC DIRECTOR: Kevin Cain)

The band played four original songs in its set:

“What’s His Name,” “Better Than That,” “One on One,” and “A Solider's Song.” 

Lady Jaz  demonstrated her strong vocals and a powerful stage presence throughout the set, but the crowd really got moving and motivated with swaying and hands clapping on the final number as their dance step routines mimicked soldiers on the march."


"I have followed LADY JAZ for 9 years.  She has this voice that soothes and heals.   Her style is uplifting, and I love her sense of humor.  She makes you dance, rejoice, laugh, and feel good on the inside..  I love LADY JAZ."
