The lineup will feature a number of Rhythm & Soul favorites: Sean Taylor, Lori Nebo, Jtronius and newcomer Tracy Cruz. We are excited about the show and will be adding details about it here on our site, our FACEBOOK (click on the word) and daily updates on our TWITTER (click on that word).
There will be a soundtrack for the event. 10 songs will pay homage to the classic and universal sound of Philadelphia soul. It has long be a goal of ours to produce an event that features this timeless sound. Samples of the songs will be presented directly to fans of our movement.
"Rhythm & Soul Music Festival" launched in 2007 at a venue then known as The Sugar Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It has since been produced in various locations, sizes and ever-changing lineups. It promotes a combination contemporary rhythm and blues sound with a more traditional soul sound to then add hints of global styles unique and different-sometimes experimental.
Rhythm & Soul Records is a record label that grew from "Rhythm & Soul Music Festival." It features the same variety of sounds and artists that has kept other versions of "Rhythm & Soul" alive and well-from "Rhythm & Soul Lounge" to the "Rhythm & Soul Concert Series."
You can hear these wonderful sounds from artists-DJs, poets and singers alike-on our weekly podcast "Rhythm & Soul Radio," which airs live every Tuesday evening, 6-8pm from various venues in Brooklyn and Manhattan (NYC) and is then podcast later in the evening.
See you in the mix!
