A POET AND A SINGER TO THE MIC!

Born in Chicago and raised in San Francisco Bay Area, Rob Morrow moved to Los Angeles in 1999 to help raise his daughter. His poetry has been influence by past and present poets and old school hip hop artists such as Langston Hughes, Public Enemy, Amiri Baraka, Sonia Sanchez, KRS One, X Clan, Saul Williams, and even Dr Seuss to name a few. Currently he is on the verge of writing his first novel and poetry book. 




Patsy Moore is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter, as well as a poet, and speaker. Moore signed with Warner Brothers Records, where she released *Regarding the Human Condition* (1991) and the *flower child's guide to love and fashion* (1993).


Although numerous performers have covered Moore's tunes since 1989, among the most notable is jazz world favorite Dianne Reeves—who, in 1999, recorded “I Remember” and “Goodbye”. That same year, Moore joined keyboardist Charles Mims (Patrice Rushen, Tracy Chapman) in writing, arranging and producing Kwanzaa for Young People (and Everyone Else!) (Charphelia Records)—a CD and educator resource guide garnering numerous commendations, including Teachers’ Choice, Parent Council, Parents’ Choice and Kids First awards. At the start of 2005, L.A.’s Walt Disney Concert Hall débuted 'Misa Justa', a symphonic jazz mass by Argentine-born composer Eduardo Gutiérrez del Barrio, performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, a large choir, and a small group of soloists. That ambitious work, widely described as "a celebration of womanhood”, features five sung poems written by Moore.


Fifteen years following her stint as a major label recording artist, she resurfaced with the independent release of The Most Private Confessions of Saint Clair: Studio Renderings (Papa Chuy). A series of setbacks, including Moore's ongoing battle with serious illness, resulted in the 11-song project taking nearly five years to complete.


The August show is around the corner and we continue to be blessed with sweet surprises! This month Indigo Lounge features award winning Patsy Moore, Rob Morrow, and The Emco Jazz Quartet.

I'm addicted to coping strategies!!

Has anyone ever told you that they used to be "in the world" but all of a sudden out of some circumstance or situation have decided they are too God-like to participate? Well, reality is that we must all live in this world. Call it spirit, God, Jesus, Buddha, consciousness, the universe or nothing at all - it was all created for you, in you. Life and the world we live in is beautiful. Look at all the wonders of nature. The difference is knowing what you are here to do. We can feed our fears with fear or we can conquer our fears by turning inside ourselves for real answers. People confuse superficial actions with the real thing constantly, and so they will forever remain zombies. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in evolution. I am open to everything and attached to nothing. This is the mystery of life and I humble myself to the all and everything.

Your DNA and your life journey was specifically chiseled out for you. Stop looking at the next persons imperfec…

Greetings,
I am floating, flying, sailing into darkness, uncertainty and faith. It's been an interesting year so far. I feel myself evolving while unraveling. With the death of my grandmother and my beloved friend just a few months apart, I feel the ancestors tugging at me like never before.
My production company is providing a service in order to fund our film production about the African Diaspora called DiSpell. I would like to thank all of you who have donated at our fundraisers. We continue to stay passionate about traveling along the Caribbean coast and archiving stories. The goal is to fly to Afro Caribbean Costa Rica and travel by land back to the United States maintaining and documenting stories of our ancestors. We are the historians that must keep our own stories alive. It is important to instill strength, courage and holistic health practices in our POC communities. I am a holistic health advocate and I want to remind you of who you are. As storytellers and multimedia …

Memorial Weekend at Val Verde, Ca

One of the best things happened to me! I was able to fullfill a bucket list dream which was to put on a community Music and Cultural Festival. Although there is room for improvement I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made this year. It takes support of family and friends to keep me motivated and pushing towards my goals and vision.
I am grateful. There will be more festivals curated by me in the on going years. The world is as good as you make it. Stay focused, stay positive and set your intention.

Please do yourself a favor and research the historic relevance of "Black Palm Springs" in the 1920's during Jim Crow.

This annual festival is not just about having a good time it's about historical awareness in underserved communities.

Come out next year for free camping, free swimming, yoga, live music and community!
