Around LA: The Venzella Joy – Hollywood Nights EP Release Show Recap!

Last night in Santa Monica, CA, Venzella Joy put together an amazing release show for her latest project, the Hollywood Nights EP!  The KATALYST Kats opened up the show, and the modern jazz ensemble had the crowd engaged!

  After that, Dwayne Wright brought out special guest Karina Pasian whose sultry voice stole my heart.
