Bandshell

Branford Marsalis + Roger Guenveur Smith

Friday, June 29 , 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm, 2018
2018-06-29T00:00:00-04:00
11225, NY, Brooklyn

Branford Marsalis and Roger Guenveur Smith will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

The GRAMMY Award-winning New Orleans-based sax player and bandleader Branford Marsalis is “a jazz chameleon...with a swooping tone, supple phrasing, and witty licks.” (AllMusic) His two sets tonight bookend Roger Guenveur Smith’s startling one man show, Frederick Douglass Now, which incorporates elements of poetry slam, rap, and revival minister to recast the words of the runaway slave-turned-abolitionist into a 21st century context and “makes a striking statement about where America has come and still has to go in terms of race.” (LA Times)

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
