Weekend Gigs

   It was another busy weekend full of shows and concerts. It started off with opening night of Love Loss and What I Wore at the Broadway Playhouse. The show runs eight times a week through Dec 4th which means plenty of weekend performances.

Each show brought the cast closer together and audiences went away charmed and entertained. The process has been really unique as the cast only had two days of rehearsal before going into performances.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friday night Whitney had a floor thumping show with JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound at the Double Door. It was a funky way start to Halloween weekend and the venue was packed. In addition to several Uptown Sound songs they also covered Janelle Monae’s Tightrope which was an instant crowd pleaser.

 

This was Whitney’s second performance with the group.

Special thanks to everyone who came out!

JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound Video

So excited to make this post!  Yesterday Whitney shot with JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound for their upcoming release “Everything will be Fine”.

The Uptown Sound is a soul outfit based out of Chicago that brings life to classic jams and mixes them with their own original pieces. This Friday they are performing at Doubledoor, and throughout September they will be touring Spain and Italy.
