• Celebrate Brooklyn Presents Joan Osborne in Prospect Park

    Joan Osborne / The Jazz Passengers: The Supremes Project

    With her brand new album Breakfast in Bed, an homage to the great soul and R&B of the ‘60s and ‘70s, Brooklyn’s own JOAN OSBORNE has reconfirmed her status as one of the most powerful and versatile singers of her generation. “her voice, all on its own, conveys whole choirs of feeling.” (Rolling Stone) The wild and wooly JAZZ PASSENGERS, whose “irreverent, sometimes gorgeously cinematic music somehow manages to orbit both Sun Ra and the Marx Brothers,” (New York Magazine) take an instrumental approach the classic songs of The Supremes. A special commission for Celebrate Brooklyn.

  • 01. Celebrate Brooklyn Presents The Neville Brothers in Prospect Park

    The Neville Brothers

    New Orleans’ royal family of funk brings the bayou to Brooklyn to open our 29th season. For more than 30 years Art, Charles, Aaron and Cyril have been turning out some of the tightest grooves and closest harmonies known to man, from classic albums like Fiyo on the Bayou and Yellow Moon to the triumphant 2004 reunion Walkin’ in the Shadows of Life. With young Ivan on keyboards adding another generation of sound, the Nevilles’ “spicy funk, heavenly ballads and righteous roots connections” (Rolling Stone) have never been more potent.

    OPENING NIGHT GALA 5:30pm
    Concert is FREE.

    Hall of the Universe

    The Hall of the Universe pops it and drops it with the turntable slams of Devlin & Darko of Spank Rock fame, and hosts the killer cuts of Baltimore gutter music impresario Aaron Lacrate (Milkcrate NYC), serving up hip-hop mixed with old-skool, crunked flair.

    The Powerhouse

    In the Powerhouse, Brooklyn-based Foreign Islands serve up a mix of nu-rave and punk, while partygoers are also treated to the aural sensations of Hess (aka Hess is More), a Danish artist and musician who lays it on with a nuanced blur of Cagian thought and complex rhythms. In Europe his music has been heard in film, theater, and multimedia exhibits. Between the instruments, the electronica, and the jazz background, Hess finds your soul while relieving you of mundane thoughts. Also mixing and matching beats are the Bassbin Twins (Bassbin Records), who throw down their impressive turntable skills, moving among breaks, house, and choppy drum ‘n bass..
