WHAT A SHOW!! Branch Entertainment was fortunate to see Boney James in action at the Ferguson Center for the Arts in Newport News, VA on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.
One thing that caught my eye about Boney James was his stylish black brim hat. It was pulled slightly downward to his eyes giving him a cool and suave appearance.
Boney James performed a spectacular show with his talented band.

Branch Entertainment had an opportunity to enjoy an evening out in Richmond, VA at The Tin Pan, on March 17, 2019.
What a fabulous relaxing, intimate restaurant, lounge and concert venue that serves good food and a variety of drinks for your choosing.
On March 17, Najee performed 2 shows. One at 2:00 and 7:00 PM. The show that Branch Entertainment(BE) attended was at 7:00 PM. The show was magnificent and soulful.
Najee played his original songs and songs by James Brown-Sex Machine, Earth Wind and Fire- Can't Hide Love and 2 cover songs by Stevie Wonder in which Najee performed with his flute.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Let's look at the definition of Working Hard, Working Smart and God's Work. Working Hard means putting in a lot of time and effort doing a certain amount of work. Smart Work means spending less amount of time performing the same amount of work. God's Work means divine intervention.
There are those who believe Working Hard is the key to success by being totally dedicated, absorbed and focused on their own career or whatever they are striving for. There are those that put in long hours such as fourteen or more hours a day, sleeping about four hours a night.

Branch Entertainment was at the Crispus Attucks Theatre in Norfolk, VA on Saturday evening, March 9, 2019. Cindy Bradley who is a Jazz trumpeter headlined the 3rd performance in the 4th season of the Church Street Jazz Series. Accompanying her was saxophonist, Nick, a class act. Cindy's and Nick duet Jazz performance was exhilarating. A lady with a flare, Cindy performed with a snazzy metallic pinkish color trumpet.
Cindy's 2nd set was just as energized and amazing as the 1st set.
ENCOURAGING WORDS TO ENTREPRENEURS
When things are not looking so great in your business, it is so easy to call it quits. A business can be challenging and discouraging. Remember why you became an entrepreneur and what you wanted to accomplish.
Giving up is not the answer because you will not have the opportunity to see what awaits you around the corner. Don't give up, Keep going! It can be an encouraging word that you needed to boost your confidence or a business connection that you were looking for to jump start your business again.
Branch Entertainment apologizes for the lateness of this SHOUT OUT!
Branch Entertainment experienced an incredible evening to remember.The Main-Hilton Norfolk hosted the 6th Annual Jazz Legacy Foundation Gala Weekend on October 18-21-2018, featuring an outstanding line-up.
There was a particular music artist who stood out in our opinion, Damien Escobar.
Before the start of his performance we were very impressed with his heart felt story that he shared with the audience. His story was about his struggles and his come back.
IS THERE SUCH A THING AS BEING PERFECT OR BEING AN EXPERT?
The picture of this flower represents imperfection because it doesn't have all its leaves and it is not in full bloom, it is defected.
The definition of Perfection is making something completely free from faults or defects, or as close to such a condition as possible.
In my travels in life I have heard so many people say they are trying to be perfect all around. In being perfect on their job, being a perfect wife or husband and to raise perfect children.
