We will have a Pre Gala Celebration on the same date and time , but the event will serve as a CD/DVD release Concert for Thumpin’ . The new CD/DVD from Michael Manson. Because of unforeseen circumstances we are moving the MAI Gala that was to have Najee and Kenny Lattimore to the September (Fall). All proceeds from this event will go to The Musical Arts Institute. The $45.00 ticket includes a buffet and wine reception, along with a copy of the CD. Join us as we celebrate for a cause.

Michael Manson is tremendously excited about the Thumping’ CD/DVD release. He is equally as excited about the possibility to walk the same path as his mentor and friend, the late, George Duke. In his words,” It is now my responsibility to use all that I have learned from George, to do all that I can, to make the best music I can, so that I continue the legacy and lineage that he has invested in me. So we move forward. As George would say, ” we were there, and now we’re here” so here we go”
