RAPHAEL SAADIQ ANNOUNCES SURPRISE PERFORMANCE
AT TIME OUT NEW YORK'S SUMMER MUSIC SAYONARA

FRIDAY, AUGUST 29th @ NYC'S SOUTH STREET SEAPORT

For those who missed Raphael Saadiq's sold-out show at Highline Ballroom this week, Time Out New York presents a free performance by the critically acclaimed multi-instrumentalist/artist/producer at the South Street Seaport in Manhattan on Friday.

The highly anticipated new release The Way I See It- out September 16th on Columbia Records- finds Saadiq at the peak of his soul power tapping into various regional scenes that underpin our best music - Motown, Stax, Chi-town, Philly. The album features guest appearances by Saadiq protégé C.J., Grammy-winner Joss Stone (with whom Raphael worked on the best-selling 2007 set Introducing Joss Stone) and the legendary Stevie Wonder on harmonica....

Oneida & Endless Boogie are the other bands playing this free show.

what a weird lineup. it's complete mishmash and really makes no curatorial sense.

they probably had Oneida and Endless Boogie already booked and then were offered Raphael and didn't want to turn it down. Or who knows.

Does he do any Tony Toni Tone songs?

I've seen him once before when he was in 'Lucy Pearl,' and he played some TTT songs, as well as En Vogue, because Dawn Robinson was in the group too (as well as DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad of ATCQ).

Sweet! Sons of Soul is a classic record. Would like to hear some of those live! Thanks for the heads up!
