Mahoganee gets the Role of Nina Simone

I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to portray the role of none other than the legendary Activist Jazz Singer Nina Simone “The High Priestess of Soul” in an upcoming theatre production “Take Me Back To Harlem” based on Langston Hughes’s “Less B Semple” by W. Lavonne Griffin. “Sometimes I sound like gravel and sometimes I sound like coffee and cream,” Nina Simone remarks of her signature style. Play dates will be listed soon for April & May 2015. Charleston, SC

Lyrics:::

What if you realize who you really are

Looked in the mirror saw a shining star

What if you realized who you could really be

In your reflection saw humanity

What if you realize who you really are

All of the beauty behind all the scars

What if you realized who you could really be

There are no boundaries in your destiny

Mahoganee Performs at ARTworks Fundraiser for Phil Griffin

Thank you to Rich Methany for capturing me within a Melody at the Fundraiser Jam Session for Phil Griffin.. It was such a memorable night for an Amazing Man in our Community… The ARTist Community truly came together to celebrate his Life while he is still here to witness it. ::: In September of this year, Phil was brutally attacked by a person wielding a hammer while driving his taxicab. His wounds were so severe it was necessary to medevac him to Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. He has required facial reconstruction and extensive dental work & the medical expenses are astronomical. As a result of his severe injuries, Phil has been unable to work. Phil is a Beaufort native and a gifted musician. His wife is local artist Diane Britton Dunham. This special fundraiser was to help offset Phil’s medical bills.

Artists who performed at the Phil Griffin Fundraiser at ARTworks in Beaufort, SC (l to r) The Warsaw Boys, Mahoganee, Jan Spencer, The Sweetgrass Angels and not pictured the Sometimes Later Band.

And last but certainly not least Mr. Phil Griffin himself came and performed for a brief minute. It was a blessing to see him there in such great spirits and even gracing the stage..
