Eldon T Jones and N' Touch band reunited Friday evening at Alberta Abbey. This emerging venue provide a space for what the more then 200 patrons enjoyed. JL Peterson is the mastermind pushing the community to awaken, heal and grow. His vision challenges the habit to be pre occupied with racist narratives, and victim hood. Life still can be purposed, and enjoyed!
The music, food, and hospitality embraced patrons, and the spirit engulfed the space.
Life has meaning, and with the success of this event, Brother JL plans to schedule more artist to the performance stage. He insist the community move into this space of healing.
Alberta Abbey is his manifested vision, in real time. Formerly a worship house, purchased, and morphed into a community space.
Congrats to his team, and in particular Chef and vocalist Brika de Tar , by his side greeting, cooking, and at times, singing.
