If you live in the DMV, most likely you are very familiar with the annual jazz festival that takes place every June in Hampton, Virginia.
Yesterday, the list of performer’s for this year’s 2013 Hampton Jazz Festival was announced; the show will take place June 28th-30th and will be headlined by Glady’s Knight, The O’Jays Bobby Brown & Jill Scott!
However, some of your other favorites are also set to hit the big stage in Hampton! Find out who after the jump.
The 2013 Hampton Jazz Festival will bring popular favorites Gladys Knight, George Benson and Jill Scott back to Hampton Coliseum while elevating local acts Forte and Karla Crump onto the main stage.
The festival, taking place in Hampton for the 46th year, will happen June 28-30. Tickets, $58.50 per show, go on sale 10 a.m. Saturday, March 23, from Ticketmaster and the Coliseum box office.
If there’s an unspoken theme to this year’s lineup, it’s collaborations. Knight will team with The O’Jays as part of a Friday-night headlining performance called Family Reunion. On Saturday, June 29, Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant, all veterans of New Edition, will perform together as Heads of State.
On Sunday, June 30, modern R&B singers Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank will link up as part of a seductive trio billed as TGT. – Daily Press
