Presented by Luaka Bop and Boom Collective, this ambitious series of shows—three in one day!—will begin with a “Gospel Brunch” at Baby’s All Right in Williamsburg, then move outdoors to The Lot in Greenpoint, where the Staples Jr. Singers will be broadcast live on-air. While these first two shows will be free, the day will be capped off with a grand finale, an extended set at Friends & Lovers in Crown Heights. It may be one of the best performances that you’ll see all year.
These concerts will be the Staples Jr. Singers’ first performances as a group in over 40 years. It will be their first-ever visit to New York City, as well as an extremely rare appearance outside the South.
Once you’ve seen this family play, you’ll want to see them again! And again! We’re therefore going to be making special Staples Jr. Singers’ passports for their tour, and anyone who collects all stamps will get a goodie bag!
