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.
Then the show host Goo Goo got the DJ to rock out some trap/ratchet hits, as a brief intermission before the Woman of the Hour, Venzella Joy, took the stage herself, with some of the KATs behind her. Check out some exclusive footage from the evening below!
