Theresa also performed.

Spencer sang Jaheim's "Aint Leavin without you": as Harris played the trombone.

One of the attendees was Majic 104.9 exec Arrika Parr.

Singer Teresa Jenee tried to get the crowd to loosen up during her impromptu set.

A long shot of the stage area.

Gettin it poppin...or so they tried.

NOTE. Overall the first installment of this last friday of the month series was OK. Lamar Harris was multitasking tenfold (dee-jay, playing horns, hosting, semi-mic troubleshooter) trying to get the crowd hyped, but for some reason the crowd was giving everyone who performed the cold shoulder. It seemed as though it was a different crowd than what the acts are familiar with performing for which could be a reason for why the crowd was not 'on." Even singer Teresa Jenee (who was not on the bill) even had to tell the crowd to stop being bougie when she performed an impromptu set(not good). Then the singer's mic was not audible with the music which was a bummer. Dubbed, "Bringing it Back for the First Time," let's hope this group gets it together the second time around cuz the crowd did not make it happen. Great effort on the promoters nevertheless.
