Celebrate International Woman's Day by singing and dancing to hits from Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and other queens of blues, rock and soul!
Get your favorite girlfriends together and join the party led by Juwana Jenkins, an African-American female singer, songwriter and performer from Philadelphia who delights and uplifts audiences with her unmistakable soulful lyrics, raw performances and very rich delivery of her own original music as well as classic blues, soul, gospel, and funk-influenced tunes. As a charismatic, highly dynamic vocalist, Juwana has served as a front-woman for bands, most notably, her own backing All-Star Mojo Band. Her much-acclaimed collaboration with noted harmonica player Charlie Slavík, The Blues Keeps You Alive (Charisma Records, 2012), garnered the attention of music critics and earned Jenkins the title of “Blues Queen”. Known for her trademark fiery, feel-good and energetic performances, Juwana embarked on her solo career with the debut single, Long Time.
