This was somewhat of a last minute thing offered to me, but I was flattered that I was even asked to perform. Once again, I will be joining my good friend, Purple Haze, who will be doing a solo performance as well. This is all going down this Sunday, June 15, at 6pm at Washington Park in Newark, NJ (under the name “PRIDE Jam”).
