What’s your Memorial Day Weekend without great live music? Uptown Soul Loungehas you covered, as NYC’s most exciting monthly live music series returns to Harlem’s “best-kept secret” on Friday, May 26th to kick off the holiday weekend with the live Harlem debut of newly formed soul duo Liberation Era (Kyle Shedrick and Jenn Mahoney), and special live performances by emerging international soul sensation Chris Jackson, and Brooklyn soul maven Johnny Burgos.
Hosted by NYC’s afrobeats/hip hop star Ayoinmotion, Uptown Soul Lounge is, at once, the revival of Harlem’s old jazz/soul ethos, and the birth of a new musical frontier. Happening the last Friday of every month, the series has made its name for bridging the gap between generations, blurring lines in the soul spectrum, and forging Harlem’s new hotbed for the world’s best emerging talent in soul music.
Admission is only $5 with an RSVP!
