Great music, good vibes, and summer breezes add up to terrific evenings, when the BID Music on the Green series continues with another fabulous dance party. Bring friends, a picnic, and a blanket or lawn chair—and be sure to wear your dancing shoes.
Eli Fountain with Baba Don & Equinox perform the second concert in the summer series. Detroit native, and son of legendary Motown saxophonist, Eli Fountain, percussionist Eli Fountain is bringing to the series an ensemble of amazing New York musicians and a smooth jazz sound. Eli has performed with The Temptations, Whitney Houston, Peabo Bryson, and many more. Max Roach, Geri Allen, James Carter, Sam Rivers, Lena Horne, Butch Morris, and Aretha Franklin are among the stars he has recorded with. He is also the leader of Percussion Discussion and The Organizers, and is a member of Max Roach’s M’Boom.
In the event of rain, the concert moves indoors to the Ossie Davis Theater of the New Rochelle Public Library, on a first-come, first-served basis to the capacity of the 138-seat theater, beginning at 6:45 pm. Call 9914) 632-8254 for weather updates, after 4 pm the day of the concert.
