An Evening of Zimbabwean Music THOMAS MAPFUMO THE BLACKS UNLIMITED

The Osher Marin JCC Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts presents: THOMAS MAPFUMO & THE BLACKS UNLIMITED Performing at the Osher Marin JCC's 25th Annual Summer Nights Outdoor Music Series Kid Zone, Dinners, Dance, Picnic, Cocktails & Fun Saturday July 15, 2017 @ 7:00pm The 25th Annual Summer Nights Series of live music, dinners, cocktails, picnics, dancing, a Kid Zone, and fun continues on Saturday July 15th with the "Lion of Zimbabwe" and his band: THOMAS MAPFUMO & THE BLACKS UNLIMITED. Known as “The Lion of Zimbabwe”, Thomas Mapfumo has been at the cutting edge of the political struggle in his native Zimbabwe, Africa for over 20 years, even as he's become a major figure on the world music scene. From the bloody years of the country’s liberation war in the ‘70s, right through the present economic and political crises, Mapfumo has used his revolutionary, spiritually charged music to decry injustice and highlight the historical and cultural issues that underlie the news headlines. Mapfumo is a musical visionary and a fearless social critic and certainly one of the greatest African bandleaders of the past century. Now based in Eugene, Oregon, he and the Blacks Unlimited play chimurenga music (music for the struggle of the people), a unique African music genre whose beats are traditional and timeless. Delivered through an electric fusion of melodious lyrics accompanied by sounds of the African thumb piano and guitar, the theme for the music advances various issues in society that include peace, love, civil rights, equality and justice. The Osher Marin JCC’s outdoor music series has been created to celebrate diversity, find commonalities, and bring generations together through live music. Five consecutive Saturday nights of great music, under beautiful Marin Skies in an intimate and beautiful setting – Five evenings of community building through the arts.

Melvin Seals JGB   Saturday Aug 5   From $25. Kids 17 and under FREE

Melvin Seals JGB

Celebrating the Summer of Love with Melvin Seals & JGB Performing at the Osher Marin JCC's 25th Annual Summer Nights Outdoor Music Series Kid Zone, Dinners, Picnic, Cocktails & Fun Saturday, August 5, 2017 @ 7:00pm The final outdoor Saturday night concert of the 2017 Summer Nights series at the Osher Marin JCC invites all to come celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the "Summer of Love" with Melvin Seals & GB. Come as you were or might have been as we celebrate flowers, bell bottoms, tie-dye, peace, love understanding and the amazing music that started in San Francisco. Melvin Seals is best known for his long friendship and musical partnership with cultural icon, guitarist Jerry Garcia and the smile of his that lights up the room. Melvin spun his B-3 magic with the Jerry Garcia Band for 18 years and in doing so helped pioneer and define what has now become "Jam Band Music." From blues to funk to rock to jazz. With a little R&B and gospel thrown in to spice things up, Melvin and JGB brings an intuitive, expressive style, soul, spontaneity and unique combinations of guitar, mandolin, slide and lap steel with savory bass, hearty drums and, of course, a heapin' helpin' of the wizard's magic on Hammond B-3 Organ and keyboards. They offer an exciting, often psychedelic musical journey that keeps audiences dancing and smiling for an evening of natural organic grooves that challenges genre boundaries. "As a progenitor of the jam band movement, Melvin Seals has solidified his place as a Rock & Roll Legend." The concert opens with a short performance from 'Til Dawn, Youth in Arts teen a capella group singing songs from the era. The Osher Marin JCC's outdoor music series has been created to celebrate diversity, find commonalities, and bring generations together though live music.
