Top Shelf Classics, a subsidiary of J’LaChic Productions (founded by Johnny and LaDonna Trotman, 2003), focuses on keeping old school music’s spirit alive. The name ‘Top Shelf’ given to JohnnyT by a former classmate, quickly became the goal for which the group constantly strives to meet every time they hit the stage!
