    This Coming Thursday SETH NEBLETT!!

    Seth Neblett is an American photographer, singer and editor. Born in Highland Park, MI. He is the only child of American funk/R&B singer Mallia Franklin of Parliament-Funkadelic/Parlet fame, also known as the Queen of Funk and session drummer Nathaniel "Nate" Neblett. As a child, he sang on songs by Parliament, Funkadelic and Bootsy's Rubber Band "This Boot Is Made For Funk'n". In 1989, Derrick Ladd (A&R) offered him an opportunity to join the roster of the newly formed LaFace Records, but Seth declined because he was reluctant to leave his group to become a solo artist. His photography credits include the PBS P-Funk documentary "One Nation Under A Groove" and he also photographed Parlet (his mother Mallia, Shirley Hayden and Jeanette Washington) for the cover of "Funk U! magazine" in France in 1997. Most recently he shot the cover of Diva, Miki Howard's 2008 release "Private Collection" and the 2008 cover of cookbook "[Champagne & Collard Greens]" for Maxi B. Seth has also been credited at one time as Miki Howard's publicist. In 2008, Seth was the editor at large of an entertainment website launched that he conceived called grownpeoplesbiz.com. The site was defunct shortly after. He's created content with friends and music celebrities like Maxi B. of the Mary Jane Girls, Miki Howard, Sheila E. and others. Seth is writing a autobiography with his mother and her funk singing sisters, The Brides of Funkenstein and Parlet. Seth's Mother, Mallia "Queen of Funk" Franklin died at the age of 57 in 2010. Seth directed his first two music videos in 2010, "Favorite Time of the Year" for Miki Howard and "Dedicated" for Vesta Williams.

    "Up Close & Personal" with Mr. Guitar " David P. Stevens"

    in Entertainment

    A versatile musician, Stevens grew up playing piano, drums and guitar at the Church of God, developing a dynamic performance style playing gospel music. He spent his teens playing in jazz and gospel bands, and developed sound and stage presence like one of his idols, Norman Brown, when he later emerged as an urban jazz artist. As his fan base grew with his early album releases, Stevens went from playing “any dive bar where they allowed jazz” in Philly to top clubs like North By Northwest, Warm Daddy’s and Relish. He and his band also played at various clubs down in Maryland, as well as the Woodrow Wilson Festival and the iconic Blues Alley club in Washington, DC.

    Stevens has also performed at The Harlem Meer Festival, at The Iridium in NYC with Alex Bugnon, and the Jazz Base in Reading, PA. Over the past two years, he also did a full European tour through Austria, Switzerland and Germany. In addition to playing on the Capital Jazz SuperCruise, he has been part of the All-Star Jam Festival at Berks Jazz Fest the past three years, sharing the stage with such luminaries as Gerald Albright, Nick Colionne and Scott Ambush from Spyro Gyra. “One of the things I’m known for live is bringing a lot of energy to the stage and incorporating many exciting elements, including background singers,” Stevens says.
