If you are here, you have most likely been invited to a Listening Party!
We are so excited that you are planning to come. We've put together some videos, music samples and fun facts for you to peruse as you're gearing up to have a great time at the show. Feel free to contact Anitra if you have any questions. She may even honor special requests! :)
What is the show like?
The "Listening Party" is a grassroots way of experiencing community and music together under one roof. It's a part of a larger movement to bring organic real music to peoples of all backgrounds and nationalities. Anitra Jay has performed at Listening Parties across the Eastern half of the United States and is excited about seeing your face at the next one. She will be performing original songs and some popular cover tunes, plus you will be part of her interactive and engaging performance as she incorporates improv comedy and improvisation into her sets. You will enjoy a unique blend of soulfully improvised music unfolding right before your eyes! It is an incredibly unique experience and one that will stick with you for a very long time.
What to expect? What to bring?
Since you are coming to a Listening Party, the most important thing to bring is your Listening Ears. This is an intimate affair where you will enjoy live acoustic music in its purest form. Be ready to listen and be attentive because you will not want to miss anything.
Also, Anitra Jay is a touring artist. She depends on donations and sales from her live shows as a major part of her livelihood. Please consider and plan on bringing a $10 Suggested Donation with you to the Listening Party. There's also a very good chance you will want to take a piece of the evening home with you in the form of a CD or t-shirt, so don't forget to leave room for some extra goodies as well.
