Levitt AMP Woonsocket Music Series: Boo City

  • River Island Art Park 95 Bernon Street Woonsocket, RI, 02895 United States (map)

Presented by NeighborWorks Blackstone River Valley.

Providence, Rhode Island’s Boo City create a gorgeous mix of blues-rock and funk that seamlessly incorporates elements of everything from country and blues to indie rock when the mood strikes. Vocalist Tai Awolaju’s smoky, sultry vocals anchor this band that also includes a slick horn section and funky basslines, making it a fixture on the local music scene and beyond.

Opening Act: Eastern Medicine Singers

Providence, RI-based Eastern Medicine Singers are an Algonquin drum group dedicated to keeping the eastern woodlands American Indian culture alive with vibrant music sung in both the Massachusset and Wampanoag dialect to create new music that combines story and culture into the drum experience.

The Levitt AMP Woonsocket Music Series will reinvigorate the scenic and underused River Island Art Park, drawing neighbors back into the once bustling public square at the heart of the city to enjoy free and accessible art, serving as both a cultural gathering center where community ties are strengthened and an economic catalyst to the surrounding area.

Presented by the NeighborWorks Blackstone River Valley, a nonprofit community development corporation that works to enrich neighborhood life throughout Northern Rhode Island, in partnership with the Office of Woonsocket Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt, the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council, the Downtown Woonsocket Collaborative, Adam Brunetti and Michael Martin.
