TRUST by Kelly Love Jones

Thu, November 18th at 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The New Orleans Museum of Art in collaboration with PowerHouse Productions is excited to present TRUST, a concept and performance by singer/songwriter Kelly Love Jones.

Join us in the Lapis Center for the Arts for an evening of music, visual art, dance, and theater. Jones brings to the stage a star-studded cast: Lakeba Angelle, Tiffany Morris, Jamal Batiste, and Drew Mosby.

TRUST invites us to let our guard down and believe in our own power. It asks us to tune into our inner guidance system, our growth process and our ability to change a circumstance through positive, collective work. If you missed PITCH DARK presented by New Orleans Airlift at the Music Box Village in 2019, then TRUST is part two of the series. Like PITCH DARK, this performance is designed to illuminate the senses.

Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the performance begins at 7:00 pm. The performance will be limited to 100 attendees.

Tickets are $30 | $25 for NOMA Members

COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

NOMA’s primary concern is the health of our visitors, staff, and community, and we will continue to follow the City of New Orleans’s public health guidance. For all programs and private events, guests aged 12 years and older are required to provide proof of at least one dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine or a negative PCR test within the past 72 hours to access. We will accept original vaccine cards, the LA Wallet app, or a high-resolution photo of both sides of your vaccine card as proof of vaccination. Masks are required for all indoor events.

The Team

PowerHouse Productions is a collaboration between two tenacious producers, Kelly Love Jones and Lakeba Angelle, that aims to influence and transform the way we view, experience, and practice social justice and social relations as a human family. Jones and Angelle use art as a tool to influence positive action and impartial respect for all life. They indulge the art(s) of music, spoken word, visual art, dance, culinary art, leadership, altruism, and reciprocation to spread their message of egality and civility.

Kelly Love Jones

Jones’s artistic, creative, and cultural work is centered at the heart of healing, empowerment, and forgiveness. She likes to call her music “New Orleans Swag” because it is influenced by and mixes in the traditional rhythms of the Second Line, R&B, hip-hop, and folk. Jones’s music also celebrates legendary artists and their traditions, like Deacon John and Allen Toussaint, who through their musicality and songwriting made available New Orleans’ soulful and spirit-filled culture, the bayou landscape, and its colorful heritage to people around the world. Jones’s music is a good bowl of gumbo, mixing in all these traditions to produce songs that honor love, well-being, ancestry, family, tradition, and good times. 

Lakeba Angelle

Co-producer Lakeba Angelle is a chef, dancer, traveler, educator, speaker, consultant, writer, and poet. She’s a well-respected liaison in the artist community in many rights, and her heart is sincere. Described as an “aggregator of resources, regarding financial matters in particular, Lakeba’s knowledge and agility in that arena has more often than not made the difference between success or failure of a venture. Lakeba brings a degree of poise and integrity to every project she’s connected with, that it automatically helps improve the business posture of the artist moving forward” (Lilli Lewis Project). Angelle is a cum laude graduate of Tulane University and a NOWFE bronze medalist.

Tiffany Morris

BassMonsterTiff, guru of the bass guitar, has been mastering for more than two decades. She is a graduate of Xavier University and was born in Slidell, Louisiana. Tiffany has shared many stages with acclaimed artists such as Ellis Marsalis, Kelly Love Jones, Joy Clark, and Cyril Neville’s Swamp Funk Band. BassMonsterTiff is also the resident bassist at Beacon Light Church of Laplace, Louisiana. BassMonsterTiff appreciates live collaboration with other musicians, but she also has a strong passion for creating original pieces of her own in her home studio. 

Jamal Batiste

New Orleans’s own Jamal Batiste is a master percussionist and multi-instrumentalist who has traveled extensively throughout the world. He has captivated audiences in the USA, the Caribbean, South Africa, Morocco, Japan, Ireland, Scotland, France, and England with his star-studded performances in rock, funk, soul, gospel, hip-hop, and R&B. Batiste is also a songwriter and recording engineer and holds an independent record label, Jam-All Pro Music Group.

Drew Mosby

Drew Mosby is a dedicated guitarist, vocalist, and harmonicist composing original music and playing with local bands like Coin Coin, Tetrad, and Kelly Love Jones. Drew also spends much of his time sound engineering at live shows, a skill he brought to New Orleans 14 years ago when he moved from his hometown in Iowa. Private guitar instruction is also a mastered skill of his, as he continues to fine tune the artistry of many young musicians.
