Jon Batiste performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
“A gifted musician with boundless artistic ambition,” (Mix) Louisiana native JON BATISTE is equally at home in the role of Stephen Colbert’s “crowd-thrilling rebel bandleader” (Rolling Stone) as leading one of his signature impromptu “love riot” street parades, as fluent in hip-hop and funk as in the great NoLA piano tradition he comes from. He curates this evening start to finish; expect an unexpected collection of special guests rotating in and out, with Batiste’s stellar band STAY HUMAN at the center.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
