Details

These upscale, exquisite live band  LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE JAZZ/SOUL Dinner parties started off in 2012 at The Wyndham Hotel (now named The Lexington Hotel) produced by Akia Uwanda. They were created to give adults something fun and entertaining to do while raising awareness for a cause. Over the years, several charities have been blessed. We are happy to be a conduit of gaining awareness and funds for them.
