a year of transition, Mo decided that now would be a good time to revisit this
event with a series of performances in the St. Louis area.

original music along with reimagined vocal favorites. Creating a unique
sound that features a blend of elements of soul, jazz, funk & Latin
served on a bed of deep grooves. The night will feature vocalists Jessica
Butler and Robert Nelson singing special reworked arrangements of music by Jody
Watley\4Hero; Robert Glasper\Norah Jones; Lisa Stansfield, Donny
Hathaway/Roberta Flack, Adele/the Cure, Koop, Calvin Harris, Erykah Badu,
