Meet the Band Members of Jessie’s Girls
Converse is hosting a concert featuring Jessie’s Girls, a high-energy, national party band, who made their Converse debut for President Newkirk’s inauguration in 2016. The members of Jessie’s Girls truly love doing what they do, and Converse is looking forward to hosting them again on Friday night!
Meet Jessie’s Girls
Tony Hightower “Jessie” – Male Lead Singer
“I am the male lead singer, the ring-leader, and master of ceremonies. I love roller skating, and my main thing outside of Jessie’s Girls as an artist is actually Jazz. I enjoy working with Jessie’s Girls for many reasons. We have a ball together. We’ve become like a little family, and what’s more fun than doing what you love to do while being compensated… win-win!”
Megan Shanley- Singer – from Virginia Beach, VA
“The show is so much fun and I love the energy of all the different audiences. This audience (at Converse) in particular is always a blast! Fun fact about me is that I was Miss Virginia in 2001 and competed at Miss America.”
Natalie Rojas – Singer – from New Jersey by way of the Dominican Republic
“I’m not just a singer in the band. I am a Spanish-speaking Artist; I act, I write and produce short comical films. I just released a single called “We Are the Ones.” It can be found on all music streaming platforms and anywhere music is sold. It’s always a good time performing with my fellow bandmates in Jessie’s Girls and the level of musicianship is topnotch.
“Besides music, my other passion is working on building an Endometriosis Advocacy Program to raise awareness and education.”
Angelica Green – Singer – from Nashville, TN
“Besides music, my other passion is working on building an Endometriosis Advocacy Program to raise awareness and education on such a mistreated disease. This band is very unique and special on so many levels. It came into my life unexpectedly and fulfilled a lot of dreams for me. I still pinch myself that I get to travel around with such talented people who are like family, and we get to celebrate with and bring happiness to people through music every week!”
Brandi Williams – Singer – from Detroit, MI/Atlanta, GA
“I enjoy being in the band because we are more than a band, we are family. I also own a vegan CBD-infused nail polish line called BEI Polished.
Johnny Glanton AKA John John – Band Leader/Choreographer/DJ/Rapper – from Columbia, SC
“Besides Jessie’s Girls, I am a photographer/videographer. I love the people in the band. I love performing and hanging out with my band friends. I am also a true Gamer. Who wants to challenge me in NBA 2k? Come get it!”
Mike Martin – Guitarist – from Atlanta, GA
“I used to play in Chris Jericho’s band FOZZY. Jessie’s Girls is a band of some of the most incredible musicians I have ever worked with. Jessie’s Girls is a family in the most beautiful and supportive way!”
Charles Davis – Drummer – from Atlanta, GA
