Last May 2016 was the very first Production of Marilyn Ashford-Brown's Three Sassy Ladies...For days, weeks and even months the event was all the buzz. It was a very special and exciting evening of soulful-Jazz, R&B accompanied by the Clarence Knight Orchestra. After such an overwhelming demand for another event, Three Sassy Ladies will return on Sunday, April 23rd. The 2017 production is guaranteed to leave you feeling TRULY, rejuvenated by the extraordinary sounds of the three sassy ladies. Soul-blues vocalist, Julia Nixon has made a name for herself both nationally and internationally, especially here in our Nations Capitol. For many years, much like Roberta Flack, Nixon performed at Mr. Henry's in Wahington, D. C.'s Adams Morgan. This will be her first performance with the Three Sassy Ladies production and she will deliver! Tonya Lynette is a native of the city of brotherly love Philadelphia, Pa. She performs locally in Philadelphia and its surrounding areas. Her performance in 2016 was amazing prompting another invitation to perform this year. The Sassy and independent recording artist, Marilyn Ashford-Brown will render another performance of some of her recorded originals from her 5 cd's including some cover songs. But, she's so excited about her very special guest star and good friend, the Life On Mars man himself, Dexter Wansel formerly, of Philadelphia International Records. Wansel was very instrumental in creating the sounds of Philadelphia alongside Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. He was also, very instrumental in Marilyn Ashford-Brown's professional recording career which featured her vocals on such recordings with Pieces of A Dream's, Forever Lasting Love and Fo Five Fo. She is also featured on a recording with the late, Lou Rawls on a track titled, In The Night. Many of Wansel's achievements included his co-songwriter, Cynthia Biggs. Together they wrote many hits including Nights Over Egypt for the Jones Girls...If Only You Knew for Patti LaBelle and Living All Alone for the late, Phyllis Hyman just to name a few. Wansel will perfom some of the very popular music which helped to create the magical sounds of Philadelphia including his legendary, smash hit titled, Sweetest Pain and much, much more.
