In collaboration with Jonal Productions, we present a pre-show tribute to the late musician, teacher, producer and mentor, Johnny Land. Mr. Land was a retired music director at San Francisco's Lowell High School, he inspired many students to pursue singing and performing long after high school graduation. He also worked as the musical director at San Francisco's Polytechnic High, where he taught Martha Wash, who later became half of the Weather Girls, best known for singing It's Raining Men.

Mr. Land, himself a singer and pianist, directed choirs, staged plays and musicals for over 30 years. He took his music groups around the world, recorded albums with them, and won several awards.

Mr. Land was a Josephine Baker aficionado. He had a large collection of her music and memorabilia. He also opened a soul food restaurant named after her in the Inner Richmond in the early 1970s.
