In the DC Metropolitan area true romantics have been blessed with several extremely talented vocalists. These artists seem to sing the soundtrack to the city. Saturday evening at the legendary Howard Theatre J.Beale, Jus Paul and Pearis J came together to present The Kama Sutra Experience. The event, hosted by Fox 5 media maven Micheline Bowman and WLVS radio personality James Yankee, drew a versatile crowd of R&B lovers of all ages.
The first talent to grace the stage was 13 year old anomaly, DJ Beauty and the Beatz. Her unique mixing blended with her intuition of exactly what the audience wanted next in terms of song choice was brilliant. She kept the crowd hungry for more.
The following act was Raw Element. They are an energetic and skilled group of dancers of varying ages. Raw Element came rushing to the stage with hot choreographed moves, high intensity and remarkable self-assurance. They had a dope presence and could definitely be deemed the “party starters”.
Next a young crooner by the name of TP sang his latest hits to the eager audience. His cadence was smooth and he was a nice addition to the bill.
Finally the ladies got exactly what they came for when J.Beale came out on stage. J.Beale and his band, clad in his clothing brand “Hard Grind” (available for online purchase this upcoming summer season) came equipped with amazing back-up singers and a custom made mic stand that spelled out “J.BEALE” carved out of gold metal.
Beale gave the people a good amount of brand new hits mixed with his tried and true sexy fan favorites. He catered to the crowd by belting out long luscious trills and grabbing the hands of screaming fans. His voice was soothing and sensual. It was truly a great performance.
Next came Oy Boyz’ prince of ratchet R&B, Jus Paul. His lyrics were drenched in sex appeal and provocation. Jus Paul’s new hits gave the crowd just as much pleasure and satisfaction that the older songs they had grown to love did.
Oy Boyz rapper Nooch performed a few songs with Jus Paul as well and served as a nice compliment. His edgy lyrical content met Jus Paul’s smooth melodic tones perfectly. The Southeast DC native made a point to show homage to his city by welcoming his entourage on to the stage for his new song “Do it for a Big Bank Roll” and adding a crank session at the end of his set. For a moment the Howard Theater was the Go-Go and Jus Paul was on the mic. His performance is sure to be the topic of conversation for quite some time.
Last but certainly not least Pearis J came to the stage. His performance was sexy enough to steam up the windows. Back up dancers grinded to his gentle, rhythmic tonality and the crowd loved every minute of his addition to this event. He performed his new song “Down For Me” as lovers embraced in the audience. Pearis J knows a thing or two about baby-making music. He gained major points when he brought the cutest R&B singer there ever was to the stage, his “mini-me” son affectionately called Pearis Jr.
This Kama Sutra Experience was a successful event full of good music and engaging entertainment. Keep an eye on all of its participants. If their performances were any indication of their up-coming projects listeners are in for a treat.
