Jade’s father was a minister and needed someone to play instruments at their church, so Jade herself has always been surrounded by music. Jade loves her career, and since Covid, has done her own thing by becoming a recording artist and publishing her music. She was invited to the Galactic Panther Art Gallery to play at this music event, and along with her talented friends, will put on a show to remember.

Along with Jade, two music-writing artists will also be in attendance at the Galactic Panther Art Gallery this fine night. Amani Williams of the reggae band Burning Fire, and Erik Arnoldson will both be performing with Jade. Amani is from Richmond is a roots reggae artist, writer, and producer, and has collaborated with many musicians during his career.

Erik traveled the country as a part of a hip-hop/rock band with Amani and has performed many solo acts with the Galactic Panther Art Gallery. Erik and Amani have spent all of covid locked in writing and creating music, and are excited to share the stage with Jade. Amani hopes that those in attendance “Come out with unity, love, and a willingness to hear the message that reggae music has to offer. But more importantly, I hope that everyone just comes ready to have a good time.”

In addition to Jade’s performance, Amani and Erik will both be Doing a DJ gig onstage for the first time in their careers. Both have their selections picked out and are ready to improv with their chosen songs, as well as offer those at the Galactic Panther a musical experience to remember.
