Alfredetta Ward is a strong, ambitious young entrepreneur who is innovative and motivated to see her performers shine. In 1997, while employed at Tyrone’s on Broadway supper club in Oakland CA she formed a vision. While listening to many aspiring singers, an appreciation of their talent inspired her to create a different type of venue. She created Miss Pumpkin Productions.
From 1998 - 2001 produced Old School 70's music tribute shows with groups such as the Old School Ballards, and The Legendary California Malibu's. She was able to land a well-known local venue (Sweet Jimmy's) for her first production and later move on to larger venues as her reputation grew. Her events became the number one place to be, especially on holidays and days such as Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day.
In 2005, she created Miss Pumpkin's Karaoke Showdown / Throw down Battle of the Sexes vocal competition. The show was picked up by local cable network leading to a better version called, Show down / Throw down Battle of the Sexes Part 2. It had a two-year run which lead to the show winning an award for outstanding production.
Miss Pumpkin has become well-known, spotlighted KJDJ, meaning she is not your average disc jockey. She added fabulous theme parties and numerous contests to her shows. Currently, Miss Pumpkin has established a new hit tribute show entitled Miss Pumpkin's Tribute to Legendary Stars, and Tracy Got Talent 2014. Her fabulous tribute show has graced popular venues such as The Gallo Theater, Modesto CA., The Bob Hope Theater, Stockton CA, The Flamingo Resort, Santa Rosa, CA, and the Stockton Fairgrounds to name a few.
From a waitress to event planner, show promoter, club owner, and KJDJ, she is headed for more success in the world of entertainment. Miss Pumpkin and her Production Supervisor, Samantha Richardson will be our special guest for this show.
