LIVE MUSIC

Gwen Hughes is an American jazz singer, songwriter and actress. Primarily based in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, she has developed a fan base both regionally and abroad with her jazz-flavored ensembles, including “The Retro Jazz Kats,” “The Continental Dance Orchestra,” and the European-based “Mono” (also known as “The Global Jazz Gang”).

Hughes released her first CD, Torch Life, in 1997, and exploded onto the Southeast music scene. She rode the “swing” craze of the late 1990s, creating her trademark “Kool Kat Lounge-a-Go-Go” show that featured jugglers, cigarette girls, magicians, and comedians in addition to her band, The Retro Jazz Kats. She and The ‘Kats clinched the title of “Favorite Jazz Artist” multiple times from Creative Loafing magazine

2013 saw the limited release of Gwen & Mono (the EU touring band)’s CD, Dancing in the Moonlight.[15] In 2016, Gwen was signed to the Grammy-winning Zoho Music and released Native Land, an Americana-flavored project on Zoho Roots. In 2019, Hughes stepped into the EDM market with the new release on Fairfield Records, “I’d Know Your Voice Anywhere (Mark Alston Deep House Remix).”  Gwen has been in numerous movies and TV series over the past 20 years.

The 2016 limited “Native Land Tour” partnered with Usher Raymond’s “Usher’s New Look” organization, with proceeds from the shows going to support UNL’s mission to help youth-at-risk graduate from high school, attend college, and achieve meaningful careers. She continues to serve on the Board of How Big is Your Dream?! Foundation.

This venue was transformed into one of the most unique places I have had the pleasure to experience

I had the privilege to attend an event this past weekend at a magical place called Inola.

Once driving onto the property, you feel as though you have stepped back in time to a place only read about in novels. This venue was transformed  into one of the most unique places I have had the pleasure to experience a social gathering and celebration. I felt as thought fetes as this one had been been relished here for centuries.

I am intrigued by the fact one day I may call this enchanted place home, I’m looking into purchasing a home lot in Inola.
