U.K. soul man James Hunter leads us back to the early days of R&B when it was “part rock ’n’ roll, part jump blues, all…swagger” (NPR). With a voice that can sigh, growl, and rip; a knack for showmanship; and a band that knows how to dig a deep groove, Hunter provides the perfect soundtrack to a hot summer night on the dance floor.

 

After hours: Silent Disco powered by Quiet Events

At 10:00 pm, when the sound system turns off, the dance party keeps going—DJs Monica Sharp, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus, and Rita Houston of WFUV broadcast directly to your headphones until 11:30 pm. A wireless headset is free with your ticket; $5 at the door for Silent Disco only.

“The United Kingdom’s greatest soul singer.”
