3rd Annual Soulfest Weekend at The Stage Miami

3rd Annual Soulfest Weekend at The Stage MiamiJune 28 & 29, 9pm-3am – The Stage Miami, 170 NE 38th Street, Miami Design District

For the third year in a row, The Stage Miami will be celebrating soul music over a two-night span in early summer. The 2013 installment of Soulfest Weekend will showcase a modern twist on soul, music, art, cocktails and food, offering the some of the area’s best musical talent and much more. Friday’s performers The Resolvers from Deerfield Beach are a self-styled “Big-Band Reggae” outfit; the Affiliated Soul Team out of Miami delivers a smooth blend of jazz, soul, funk, hip/hop and R&B. The pedal steel-led Roosevelt Collier Trio, also out of Miami, cuts a mix of gospel, blues, soul and funk while Brooklyn, NY imports The Pimps of Joytime cap it off on Saturday, and the main act promises to deliver a nationally-touring, polished dance-party-funk vibe heavily steeped in Brooklyn DJ culture that is not to be missed. The festivities will also include music spun by DJ Maneuvers, DJ Sire and DJ Heron, the latter of which has recently opened several high-profile hip-hop shows including the likes of Queen Latifah, Public Enemy and KRS-One. A live graffiti art exhibition plus the delectable presence of the Rum Cake Factory Food Truck (offering jambalaya, smoked ribs and chicken and rum cake) happens both nights. Admission is $10 Friday, $15 Saturday and two-day passes are available for $20.
