Alameda, California - July, 21 2012 - The Tribute concert sold out last year and The DejaVu Band, Featuring Carmen Jones is going to do it again! In honor of the late Teena Marie, also known as "The Ivory Queen of Soul", who died in 2010 of an epileptic seizure, Jones, who grew up in Berkeley, and her dynamic band will not only spread joy by performing Teena Marie's music, but they will also be spreading awareness and donating a portion of proceeds towards the research to end Epilepsy.

On Saturday, August 11, 2012 at Rhythmix Cultural Works theater in Alameda, California, The DejaVu Band, Featuring Carmen Jones will be paying Tribute to the legendary Teena Marie. Enjoy an evening of real funk music, with hit songs made popular by Marie, including "Square Biz", "Ooo La La La", Lovergirl and "Fire and Desire", featuring singers from the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir. Tickets are $20 in advance,$25 at the door. To get advance tickets, go to: A description of the Tribute Concert as described by a true Teena Marie fan: "I never thought I would say this ever, but this was a great tribute to Teena Marie. The band and background singers were phenomenal and the lead female singer made the songs her own but still remained faithful to the original Lady Tee versions. Teena will be forever missed and never duplicated, but it is comforting to know that there are performers out there giving her the recognition and respect she rightly deserves."- Comalaism, 2012

Don't miss an incredibly uplifting evening of R&B/Funk music and the chance to help a great cause. Included with each ticket purchase are an intimate musical experience, great sound, free parking and a donation towards fighting to end epilepsy.

The DejaVu Band, Featuring San Francisco Bay Area singer, Carmen Jones whose impromptu duet with Jamie Foxx has gone viral on youtube, are thrilled about this upcoming show! For tickets go to: . For more information and Booking go to: .
