The Jam: Spoken Word Preserves is an innovative spoken word concert led by Daniel J. Watts.  Utilizing a live band, interactive vocalists, and varying styles of dance, Watts weaves a soul revealing and, often times, comedic narrative that explores that thing called “life”.  A play-on-words, The Jam pays homage to Watts’ great-grandmother, who after making jam from scratch would share with others what she could not consume herself.  The Jam is Watts’ continuation of that legacy, food for thought for any and all ears willing to taste it!


Featuring Hemmens Band, Rhett George (Sweet Charity, Wicked), Jesse Nager (Motown, Broadway Boys) & Donald Webber, Jr. (Motown, Holler If Ya Hear Me) with Special Guest appearances by Patrice Covington (Motown, Dreamgirls)  & Condola Rashad (A Trip to Bountiful, Stick Fly).
