A Juneteenth Celebration
Live from Blue Strawberry with Rhythm & Jazz vocalist ROBERTNELSON.
With daring takes on timeless standards, emotionally resonant originals, and signature interpretations of pop and soul classics, ROBERTNELSON makes it unmistakably clear that he is headed to the top of today’s Rhythm & Jazz vocalists.
Hailed by the The St. Louis Post Dispatch, and described by The Huntsville Times as “suffused with graciousness, beauty and, on occasion, heartbreak,” ROBERTNELSON brings to his live performances soulful intensity and dynamic grace.
ROBERTNELSON returns to Blue Strawberry, Saturday, June 19th for a spirited Juneteenth Celebration. Harlem is a salute to the music from and inspired by The Harlem Renaissance. Blue notes from the swinging night clubs of Harlem become an adult contemporary Rhythm & Jazz set. The show fuses Latin and Jazz styles with stories of the evolving culture of Harlem USA.
This jazz party tips its top hat to Duke Ellingon and Billie Holiday before taking flight into more progressive, contemporary compositions that echo the jazz nuances, rhythms and rhymes inspired by the Harlem Renaissance.
Harlem concludes with a musical celebration of culture, freedom and artistic expression.
Experience the Renaissance of Rhythm & Jazz. Witness its Evolution.
