Anitra Jay presents…
Curls Night Out
Acoustic Soul Singer-Songwriter, Anitra Jay offers a very special event for natural hair meet-ups and groups which provides a unique way to experience the joy of natural hair together.
As a woman with natural hair herself, Anitra loves getting together with other naturals and appreciates the importance of supporting one another with education, product samples, and encouragement through building community and strong relationships. That is why she created the Crown & Glory Tour, a project where Anitra travels to natural hair meet-up groups or get-togethers around the country to share an intimate live performance of songs from her album, ‘Crown and Glory’.
Each event is called “Curls Night Out” (or something similar) and is planned together with the leader of the group. Anitra brings her instruments, her PA system if needed, as well as product samples (while supplies last), her special edition, handmade ‘Crown and Glory’ albums and facilitates a program especially geared to encourage and promote community among the group. The event includes a meet & greet, an album giveaway, a live performance by Anitra Jay, and free product samples (while supplies last) to attendees. The group leader sometimes will include other activities such as a speaker or talk, trivia, door prizes or any other features as well. Over all “Curls Night Out” is a unique and fun event that incorporates a LIVE CONCERT into the love of natural hair.

Book a ‘Curls Night Out’ event for your Group
Booking a ‘Curls Night Out’ is very simple. Anitra Jay is willing to travel to your city to host this very special evening for your group.
Cost of ‘Curls Night Out’:
‘Curls Night Out’ is a very cost effective way to host a gathering for your group. There are several options to cover costs associated with putting this event on. There is no set fee, however Anitra’s hope is to at least cover her travel expenses (gas and lodging). She would love to earn some extra cash to support her artistic career as well and she will bring albums and other merchandise to sell to help with this effort. With that in mind, you can help achieve this by doing either of the following options.
Option 1 - Pay Up Front
Cover Anitra’s expenses by either paying her outright, or charging a door/ticket price and have your group members cover the costs or some combination of the two.
Option 2 - Offer the event for free with a Suggested Donation
You can also offer the event to your group for free but ask group members to bring a suggested donation which will cover the expenses. If at the end of the event, Anitra has not earned her desired amount (travel + $150 or more) please consider offering to bridge the gap. It is not required, however keep in mind that Anitra Jay is a professional singer-songwriter and this is part of her means to earn a living. Also, if you or anyone in your group can host Anitra and her husband Rob at your home for the night, that would help out greatly in saving lodging costs for both parties.
Finding a Venue
Finding a venue is the fun part! There are many places you can host your ‘Curls Night Out’. Here is a list of ideas:
- local coffee shop or art gallery
- local cafe
- Someone’s living room or backyard
- Outdoor park shelter
If you would like to be hands off and just show up at the event, Anitra has no problem handling finding the location as well as setting up the invitations/flyers, ticketing logistics, as well as the overall logistics of the event. It would help if you can offer some suggestions of local places in your area that Anitra can start with, but your involvement in the planning of the event is strictly up to your discretion and comfort level. Anitra can facilitate the event from start to finish or you can do it yourself, it’s totally up to you.
