American Express Series with Gregory Porter, Marcus Strickland + Twi-Life
Gregory Porter 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.
The Brooklyn-based singer GREGORY PORTER showcases “outstanding original songs, erudite lyrics and social comment, top drawer musicianship and improvisation, and a voice to die for” (Jazz Wise)—qualities that led L’Express to call him “the next great voice in jazz.” Multi-reedist, beat-maker, and BRIC JazzFest alum MARCUS STRICKLAND and his electrifying band TWI-LIFE, whose recent Blue Note/Revive debut Nihil Novi was produced by Meshell Ndegeocello, sets the tone.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
