2017 JAZZ Summer Series featuring MARC AVON EVANS @ Bill Bateman's Bistro
Jul 21 @ 7:00 pm
2017 JAZZ Summer Series featuring MARC AVON EVANS @ Bill Bateman's Bistro | Havre de Grace | Maryland | United States

ABOUT MARC AVON EVANS — Singer. Songwriter.

A native Baltimorean was born into music. Yet amazingly, this son of a vocalist and Jazz saxophonist didn’t discover his own music until his late teens. Finally, as a student at Morgan State University, under the tutelage of Dr. Nathan Carter, Evans began nurturing a love for music. Out of that nurturing arises one of the most sultry, smoky baritones ever. That smooth voice meshed with passionate delivery sets Evans apart from the rest as one of the most talented vocalists of the millennium.

After performing on the MD/DC/VA open-mic, jam sessions, and live band hotspots as a solo artist and with his band, Soul Centered, Evans decided there was something missing in his music. Having been inspired by lyrical greats Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye, Sting, and Sade, Evans decided to focus as much on his lyrical development as his musical craftsmanship. Evans began to write poetry and perform on the open-mic circuit. Evans’ unparalleled blend of deep verses accentuated with smoke-n-soul riffs and hooks flavor his poetic delivery with that “special something” that has made him a favorite on the performance poetry circuit.

Whether it’s his independent releases, Marc pursues both his writing and his music with purpose. Balancing his talents in ALL areas, Evans lyrical presentation in song and spoken word is miles beyond one-dimensional artists. To witness any of his performances is truly an experience one won’t soon forget!

With August 9th, 2017 marking the 15th Anniversary of DMGlobal Marketing & Public Relations, LLC, the creator of – we knew we needed to come up with something special. Truth be told, at a recent “listening party” in Baltimore for Jay Z’s new album, 4:44, we learned about Afrotech. It is a movement on the West Coast with an emphasis on 21st century technology. Home to Silicon Valley, that is where some of the hottest ideas in new technology emerge.

However, Bmorenews is based on the East Coast. Hence, we believe it is incumbent upon us to look at our own strengths and assets in our corner of the world and build on them. With that in mind, Bmorenews has partnered with the Entrepreneurial Development and Assistance Center (EDAC) at Morgan State University in the Earl G. Graves School of Business & Management to produce “BLACKTECHPRENEUR.” The focus of BLACKTECHPRENEUR is the intersection of business and technology.

Our goal for this event scheduled for Thursday, August 3, 2017 from 10 am to 2 pm is to bring together some of the intelligent minds in the region when it comes to making money online. From media publishers to online business owners, our aim is to put some of the best and brightest people who are technologically inclined in the same room at the same time.

In short, if you are a business owner who makes a significant portion of income because of the World Wide Web, then BLACKTECHPRENEUR is for you. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur who, again, is looking to make money – some way, somehow – by way of the Internet, then this conference is for you. If computers, laptops, Smart Phones and Social Media are essential to your business’ survival, we implore you to attend this one-of-a-kind gathering specifically designed for the entrepreneur.

Further, BLACKTECHPRENEUR will also feature the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Awards, part of Bmorenews’ ORIGINAL Black Wall Street SERIES *NYC *MD *DC *ATL *NOLA.

Confirmed special guests scheduled to appear include:
Jenjer Johnson, (MD)
Odessa Hopkins, Black Income Shifters (NY)
