Burnt Sugar – The Arkestra Chamber, a highlight to 2019 the Concert Series
July 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Wednesday July 3rd, we welcome what is sure to be a highlight of the series with Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamberperforming the music of David Bowie and Prince, as well as original works! Burnt Sugar hail from New York City and Rolling Stone’s David Fricke has said of the group, “A multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis’ On The Corner, the slash-and-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrix’ moonwalk across side three of Electric Ladyland.” Think Jazz and Rock and Orchestrated Improvisations. Anson B. Nixon Park has never seen anything like this! M&M Barbecue will offer dinner on July 3rd.
In its 13th season, the Summer Concert Series returns to Anson B. Nixon Park in June. All concerts are FREE and run 8 consecutive Wednesdays June 19th thru August 7th.
