We Present Church

Commentary: It is a treat to play with one of my idols and good friend Mark de Clive-Lowe but when he invites musicians like legendary bassist Freddie Washington and sax phenom Walter Smith III, I’m beside myself. I think I can speak for Church regular (and first lady) Nia Andrews when I say that we are looking forward to exploring some new territory on this particular Church. And there are so many amazing musicians in LA, I may even get the opportunity to step aside on the second set and watch a surprise drum legend go to work. Who knows? One thing is certain; this night will be fire. I highly recommend. Five stars.
