What is the Summit?

State of Her Union Leadership Summit takes place May 4, 2019 in the Nation’s Capital. The Summit seeks to reach hundreds of women worldwide. We will educate, enrich and empower women, as the true leaders we are. We are celebrating women and their achievements by inviting notable speakers to share their stories to inspire and motivate women to be their best selves.
What is the Vision of the Summit? 
The State of Her Union Leadership Summit is a declaration of womanhood. A proclamation of our time and efforts- an emancipation of our liberties. In essence, this summit is a bold punctuation on our history. The idea came from the many conversations that I’ve had with friends and relatives about the great balancing act that is our lives. However, for us, it’s less of a balancing act, than it is our reality.
I know so many woman who feel as if they have to choose. A choice of whether to be career-driven or socially-led, down, or sold out, for the people or for herself. I sincerely believe that we can have it all.
We can be a well-endowed scholar, a C-Suite mommy, a multi-passionate wife, and an investing entrepreneur. All the while, we can be socially conscious, technology savvy, physically active, and a forever student. Our motives do not have to stop once we prescribe to one.
This summit will ignite your every being by challenging your day-to-day paradigm. We’re setting the stage to delve into topics that keep you up at night, or simply on the phone for hours at end. We’re coming to you with tribulations, triumphs, testimonies, solutions, action items, and a network.

Rare Essence, Washington’s premier Go-Go band for more than four decades, is a DC institution that has built a devoted fan base that spans multiple generations, drawn to the indigenous funk sired in the mid -70s by the late Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown.

Rare Essence first came together in 1976 when a group of elementary students at St. Thomas Moore Catholic School in Southeast Washington gathered after school and started playing the then new, as yet unnamed, music (Go-Go’s breakthrough chart topper, Brown’s “Bustin’ Loose,” was still three years away). Drummer Quentin “Footz” Davidson along with guitarist/vocalist Andre “Whiteboy” Johnson, bassist Michael “Funky Ned” Neal and trombonist John “Big Horn” Jones and, calling themselves the Young Dynamos, jammed on Top 40 hits by that era’s funk and soul masters, earning their initial show stripes on the city’s recreation center circuit.

Changing its name to Rare Essence, the band expanded its lineup and, as teens, started playing on a thriving Metro Go-Go circuit that included Maryland and Virginia. They built a huge following, and a reputation as one of the city’s top Go-Go bands, through spirited battles with the likes of Chuck Brown, Trouble Funk, Junk Yard and EU (Experience Unlimited), putting on marathon shows that might run until 5 a.m., stacked sets seamless and unending.

Rare Essence would be one of Brown’s earliest, and have remained his most enduring, progeny, with a consistently combustible live show honed through countless performances in the Washington region. Go-Go thrives live and that’s where reputations, and legacies, are cemented. As the Washington Post noted in a review, “….this band has performed more than 5,000 times. Like so many Rare Essence concerts, it’s easy to believe you’re seeing the best one.” 

Little wonder they were dubbed “The Wickedest Band Alive” by rap pioneer Doug E. Fresh, who has collaborated with Rare Essence, one of many artists to incorporate Go-Go’s percolating percussion, and some of its key players, into their own recordings. 

They have performed with Run DMC, LL Cool J, Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, Ice Cube, Heavy D and the Boyz, Wu Tang Clan, Redman and Method Man, French Montana, Scarface, TLC, Eric B and Rakim, YoYo, Shabba Ranks, The Roots, Erykah Badu, Wale, Thievery Corporation, Clutch, KRS-1 not to mention Chuck Brown, Trouble Funk, The Junk Yard Band, & EU.

The Rare Essence catalog, on their own Rare One Records label, includes over 30 releases. Fans have bought and traded thousands of live P.A. recordings of their shows over the years. Rare Essence continues to feature such fan-favorite radio staples as “Lock It,” “Body Snatchers,” “Back up Against the Wall” and “Overnight Scenario.” Like any long-lived style of music, Go-Go has undergone changes over the decades but Rare Essence maintains and sustains its original sound and spirit. One of their album titles puts it best: “We Go On and On.”

Also lovingly known by fans as RE, “The Inner City Groovers”, or Essence (if you are from DC), you can’t help but know who “The Wickedest Band Alive” is and that you gotta be there to experience the party in person!
