The venue was an intimate black box setting which added a theatrical flair to the show which included custom costuming and a dynamic four-piece band led by the incredible Zach Cutler with three remarkable backing vocalists-- including N'ea Posey-- supporting Wellons on lead.
Wellons presents a passionate character-- often serious, sometimes sensual with costume changes that happened almost miraculously with how quickly they occured. With a resident TeaCake as part of the show, the show was an unexpected showcase of disciplines as dance, theater and music all had their place.

Directed and conceptualized by event producer Risikat Okedeyi of Lil SoSo Productions, Songs for Janie is a show worth attending as it will continue to transform and build as a production as it is still in its birthing phase.
