J Cabaret Presents: 33 Years Band 

This South Florida-based indie-rock-duo focuses on tight, swirling harmonies, folk punk-like musical backing, ragged Neil Young influences and tenor vocals. Initially they drew comparisons to fellow South-based indie folk rockers Shovel & Rope. Part-time band bassist, Dr. Robert Watson is also well-known in the Palm Beach community as an exquisite speaker, award- winning author, and Professor of American Studies at Lynn University and Senior Fellow at the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship. He has appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews, The Daily Show with John Stewart, C-Span’s Book TV, The Washington Journal and the Voice of America. Audience members will definitely enjoy seeing the musical side to this professional and political guru.

Approaching her 80th birthday, Mehri is still at work in her home studio. Her Year of the Child bronze sculpture, stands seven feet high and is on display in West Palm Beach.

Women of Inspiration | March 11

Jeanette Jennings is the mother of four children. Her youngest child, Jazz Jennings – now 16 - was assigned male at birth, but was diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria at age 3 and transitioned to a girl at age 5. With so little information regarding transgender issues years ago, Jeanette and her husband Greg, agreed to share Jazz’s story with Barbara Walters on 20/20 when Jazz was 6. Since then Jeanette has been a fierce advocate for transgender youth and she and her family continue to share Jazz’s story through numerous TV appearances and with other media outlets. In 2011, she and her family were filmed for a documentary for Oprah’s OWN network titled I am Jazz: A Family in Transition. Besides helping to educate the public about transgender issues, her underlying message is the importance of unconditional love, tolerance and acceptance. Jeanette is the recipient of many honors for her advocacy work, including the Ackerman Institute’s Family award. For the past few seasons, Jeanette and her family have been the subjects of the award - winning television reality series titled I Am Jazz,’ aired on TLC.
