It's been quite a foundation building debut year for Jody Watley, Nate Allen Smith and Rosero McCoy as Shalamar Reloaded.
In posts shared on their Official Facebook page, it's all about the 2015 journey that took the trio around the United States, to the United Kingdom, Netherlands and Japan. It began as one thing and morphed into something else - a real group. New single, new video and an ever evolving show. "We're not kicking and screaming trying to hold on to the past. We celebrate it because of course Jody's an original but we are not that. Even when we do those classic songs, we're not saying remember this, it all feels fresh and the audiences have been loving us. " says Rosero McCoy. "We'll leave it to other people to try to make it like it's 1982. No one is ever going to replace that past, no one. We have something new to build on. We've evolved as the year went on and with every show and experience we had. We're ready to keep building and creating..we've already set a new precedent and can see others try to follow our lead while they have tried to stop us. We've just kept it rolling and positive; letting the haters do their job."
