Event Info

SATURDAY, JULY 31st

Doors 6:00 / Show 7:30

Rejoice! Live music returns to the Bandshell with neo-soul phenom ARI LENNOX, whose 2019 breakthrough studio debut Shea Butter landed her on BET’s Future 40 list of “the most inspiring and innovative vanguards who are redefining what it means to be unapologetically young, gifted & black.” Lennox’s fellow DC native (now Brooklynite) KAMAUU, a politically conscious rapper and poet who seamlessly incorporates genres from doo-wop to soul, with special guest Adeline and the Queens-based artist NESTA, who fuses his Jamaican heritage with contemporary R&B, round out an opening night for the ages.

Free performances at the Bandshell are FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Capacity is limited. RSVPs are not required and do not guarantee entry.
