“Legendary vibraphonist Roy Ayers kicks-off BRIC House Sessions with an electrifying jazz-funk set for all ages and BK’s Shareef Keyes jam on the Stoop.
Ayers has been a key figure at the nexus of jazz and R&B throughout his 40-year career, and continues to collaborate with younger artists including Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest and Ice Cube. Lauded as the “godfather of Neo-Soul,” his music has inspired generations of musicians and listeners across genres, and he is often cited as the most-sampled jazz artist in hip-hop history; remixes of his hit compositions “Everybody Loves the Sunshine,” “Searchin,” and “Running Away” are still featured on new releases. The BRIC House Ballroom is perfect for dancing to Ayers’ silky grooves for a special performance the week of Valentine’s Day.
The funk-hip hop jams from Shareef Keyes & The Groove will energize BRIC’s Stoop for a “get-down and dance” good time. With a magnetic front man and big sound, this band is making a name for itself across New York City, and will set the mood just right for the first BRIC House Session.
