On September 11, 2016, Syracuse Woman Magazine hosted their first concert and what an amazing line up of talented artists they presented! The event was titled "Rock Like A Girl" and let me tell you that these women killed it! They rocked the house for sure! ... the House of S Jaye that is. This funky little venue on Clinton Street offered fantastic acoustics. The sound couldn't have been better.
I had a favorite show a while back and I never missed an episode. It was called MTV unplugged. Tonight, I felt like I was at the MTV studios watching it live for the first time, instead of in my living room. The women who performed were so talented and extremely passionate about their craft and that is exactly what makes a show worth watching - performers who show their dedication.
All who took the stage were exceptional for sure but seriously - Jess Novak and her special guests were the cake and the freaking icing! Can't wait to pop in the CD I purchased from her, though nothing beats a live show.
Music makes me so happy. When I left the event tonight, I felt energized and excited and just couldn't wait to share some of the video clips with my family and friends who I shall drag out with me to see these chicks the next time they play live!
Thank you to Lorna and Syracuse Woman Magazine for hosting this fantastic event and for donating the night's proceeds to Hope Chest for Charity!
