Shelby J and Liv Warfield with the New Power Generation Horns LIVE at City Winery in New York City on August 21,22,23,25

A little purple bird whispered in our ear and told us to get our behinds down to this amazing event which will be taking place at the City Winery in New York City.  Many of you may know Shelby J is a singer/songwriter/producer from North Carolina, who has provided vocals for artists like Santana and D’Angelo, and is currently a background vocalist in Prince’s band The NPG. Check out her website here.

Liv Warfield’s website describes her sound as “Alternative R&B Soul with a little bit of Rock & Roll” which fits in perfectly with the purple one. 

Given the underground buzz being generated in NYC, this will certainly be an amazing event and with the promise of “special guests”, we can only wander if he Purple Highness, Prince will be in attendance.  We sure hope so.  Check for tickets on Thursday here.
