ONE OF THE BIGGEST URBAN FESTIVALS IN THE MIDWEST WILL DRAW THOUSANDS TO THE CITY TO HEAR THE TOP NAMES IN R&B/SOUL
The 2nd Annual Urban Expo Music Fest returns to Louisville and they are bringing R&B/Soul royalty as part of Black Music Month. On Saturday, June 13th at the KFC Yum! Center at 7:00 p.m., fans will get to see Ron Isley and The Isley Brothers, Johnny Gill, Kelly Price and Tom Browne.
Ron “Mr. Biggs” Isley and The Isley Brothers are Midwest natives hailing from Lincoln Heights, Ohio. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and this year’s Trumpet Award recipients will headline this year’s festival performing new songs and of course some of their classics like “I Want To Be With You”, “Don’t Say Goodnight” “Between the Sheets” and “Down Low”.
Johnny Gill is a singer, songwriter and actor. The 4-time Grammy nominated artist and the sixth member of New Edition says “ “I Love coming to Louisville…It’s starting to feel like home to me because my publicist (Kita Williams) is from there so I was just in town for the Kentucky Derby and had a great time so I’m looking forward to coming back again to do what I love to do at the Urban Expo Music Fest… so all of my fans in the ‘Ville better get ready for a show!”
Kelly Price is a seven-time Grammy nominated artist with hits like “Tired”, “As We Lay”, and “Not My Daddy”. When music lovers hear her sing they describe her voice as powerful yet sensual.
Tom Browne will also perform during the Urban Expo Music Fest. The jazz trumpeter will entertain fans with his smooth sounds but what his fans hope he plays is his hit song “Funkin for Jamaica”:.
If the entertainment is not enough, this year’s host will be artist, entrepreneur and reality show star, Tameka “Tiny” Harris.
