It’s Pride Month, which means it’s time for the LGBTQ community to celebrate. And while it’s great that we’re finally seeing more representation on our screens, I’d like to think there is more to our LGBTQ community than the traditional media portrayal of gay characters.

Jody Watley is one of America’s most respected and greatest singers. Before she recorded her first album in the 90’s, her father, a jazz musician, played her his old vinyl records, which included a song by Jimmy Webb called “MacArthur Park” that became one of Jody’s favorite songs. In the 90’s, Jody became a member of a group called The Pips, and she recorded the song “MacArthur Park” for her first album.


Napa, CA (June 8, 2021) – Blue Note Napa is pleased to announce the performance of Grammy Award winner Jody Watley on Saturday, June 26. June 2021 at the legendary Charles Krug Winery.

The National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) recently announced Grammy Award-winning artist and performer Jody Whatley as its first Member Ambassador.

Jody Whatley, singer-songwriter, producer and businesswoman, is one of the architects of 21st century pop music. The century. From her groundbreaking fusion of rap and R&B (the 1987 album Friends, a collaboration with hip-hop legend Eric B. & Rakim), to her visionary fusion of high fashion, street fashion and music in the 80s (long before it became the norm), to her fusion of jazz and underground club culture with a distinct pop instinct and the ease with which she has crossed and continues to cross genres, Jody Watley has created a template that is a record for everyone today.

We are very excited to host their first live show since the pandemic ended live music last year, said Ken Tesler, owner of Blue Note Napa. To have an iconic artist like Jody Whatley in the first wave of our shows is really special to us.

Watley’s performance coincides with Pride Month (June), and Blue Note Napa will donate a portion of ticket sales to LGBTQ Connection Napa to support NAPA PRIDE.

Tickets can be purchased at or The Charles Krug estate is located at 2800 Main St. in St. Louis. Helena, Napa Valley, CA.
