Bandshell

What’s Going On featuring Felicia Collins, Toshi Reagon, Siedah Garrett, Kecia Lewis, and others

Friday, August 9 , 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

What's Going On will be performed at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

What's Going On, Marvin Gaye’s 1971 classic concept album sung from the point of view of a Vietnam vet who returns home to a country torn by hatred, suffering, and injustice, has become a cultural touchstone—and its relevance today is chilling. The brilliant guitarist and bandleader Felicia Collins gathers a host of friends with an all-star band for a deep dive into Gaye’s legacy, as they play the record in its entirety.

What's Going On, Marvin Gaye’s eleventh studio album, was released on May 21, 1971. It was the first album Gaye produced himself and the first to credit Motown's now-legendary in-house studio band, the Funk Brothers. What’s Going On met with immediate critical and commercial success and soon came to be regarded as a landmark recording in American popular music. Rolling Stone ranked it sixth on the magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time."

Music Director Felicia Collins is best known around the world as the guitarist and vocalist in the CBS Orchestra on The Late Show with David Letterman and World's Most Dangerous Band with Paul Shaffer. Felicia has also led her own bands: 360, and B!tchslapp, which went on to become Felicia Collins and the Life.
