Saxophonist, member of The J.B.'s and Parliament, and all around funk legend Maceo Parker has only lined up a few 2013 shows so far, including a few dates in Japan in February, the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Idaho ( Feb. 20 - 23) and some dates in Louisiana. Parker will also be in NYC for a four-night run at Blue Note on April 22 - 25. Each night will feature the bandleader/instrumentalist playing two sets, and tickets are on sale for all eight shows: 4/22 early and late, 4/23 early and late, 4/24 early and late, and 4/25 early and late.
Head below for Maceo's full tour schedule, as well as some streams of classic material by The J.B.'s.
Asser-Levy Park bandshell (Lisanne!)
The initial/partial schedule for the 2010 Seaside Summer Concert Series at Asser-Levy Park in Coney Island is posted below. The series of free shows kicks off on July 15th with Neil Sedaka and Brenda Lee. After that, there's a July 22nd show with the "Beach Boys" (Mike Love/Bruce Johnston) and Happy Together Tour (Flo & Eddie of the Turtles, Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees, & others), a July 29th show with George Thorogood and the Destroyers and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, and date-TBA shows with Belinda Carlisle (whose GoGos tour was recently canceled) and secret guest (the B-52s?), John Legend (who plays Brooklyn Bowl tonight) and Aretha Franklin, plus Latin Night. (schedule via Sheapsheadbites).
The Seaside concerts happen Thursdays at 7:30pm at Asser Levy/Seaside Park (West 5th Street and Surf Avenue) in Coney Island/Brighton Beach, across the street from the New York Aquarium. For now they still happen in the above-pictured bandshell, though things may get fancier in the future.
There's also the associated 28th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series, which happens Mondays at Wingate Field (located on Brooklyn Avenue between Rutland Road and Winthrop Street opposite Kings County Hospital). That kicks off with George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and The Ohio Players on July 12th. Acts for the other nights of the series are TBA. Dates are below.
The full lineup (with most of the schedule) is posted below...
