Valley of the Sun Juneteenth Celebration

 

4-9PM SAT JUN 16 2018 • EASTLAKE PARK • PHOENIX AZ

 

National Juneteenth Observance Foundation

 

On March 17, 2016, Gov. Ducey signed Rep. Bolding's HB2226 recognizing June 19 as

Juneteenth Day in Arizona – making Arizona the 45th state to recognize Juneteenth as a

state holiday or special day of observance. Only five states remain: North Dakota, South Dakota,

Montana, Hawaii and New Hampshire.

 

The annual Valley of the Sun Juneteenth Celebration, which will again return to Eastlake Park

and Community Center, will be a time to celebrate this historic moment for the state! This year,

we invite you to continue the celebration. Join us for this one-day free festival, which includes

several guest speakers against the backdrop of music and dance, sports activities, entertainment and vendors.

 

Eastlake Park, now Eastlake Park Community Center, opened in 1914 and provided a gathering

spot for local African American residents when Phoenix was segregated. Juneteenth was

originally held at Eastlake Park then moved to South Mountain Community College in 2004.?

 

Juneteenth is the oldest celebration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

It specifically celebrates the state of Texas announcing the abolishment of slavery in 1865,

 two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued in 1863. But Juneteenth offers a

time to come together and celebrate the rich cultural history of African Americans.

[*] TAKE 6    @ MIM                                                          June 28

#############################################

SOUL, R&B, AND FUNK

Take 6, heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet,” is the quintessential a cappella group and

 

model for vocal genius. Composed of Claude McKnight III, Mark Kibble, Joey Kibble, David Thomas, Alvin Chea, and

 

Khristian Dentley, the six virtuosic voices united in crystal clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms,

 

innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop. With

 

praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, and Whitney Houston, the

 

multiplatinum-selling sextet has toured across the globe, collaborated across genres, and is recognized as the preeminent

 

a cappella group in the world.

[*] Spanish Harlem Orchestra @ MIM                              July 14

#############################################

 

In celebration of its fifteen-year anniversary, two-time Grammy Award–winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra (SHO) is proud to

 

announce the release of its aptly titled sixth album, Anniversary, due out on April 16. On Anniversary, the powerhouse

 

thirteen-piece, all-star salsa big band demonstrates why they are “the leading light of the salsa reconstruction movement”

 

(Newsday) by doing what they do best: hard-hitting, no-holds-barred New York salsa that is both contemporary and

 

reverent to its rich musical history.

 

Since its inception, SHO, under the direction of pianist, composer, and arranger Oscar Hernández, has earned its

 

reputation as the true voice of the barrio with intricate arrangements and pulsating rhythms that are steeped in the

 

authentic salsa tradition. Their high-energy performances have delighted audiences across the globe from Asia to

 

Australia, from Latin America to Europe. Grounded in the past but with a focused eye on the future, SHO continues to play

 

an integral role in ensuring salsa dura (“hard salsa”) is not just alive but a thriving musical force. “Over the course of fifteen

 

years, the consistent thread in each of our records has been the hard-core rhythm, sophisticated arrangements and a lot of

 

care toward producing quality music with high integrity for our genre,” says Hernández.

[*] JAZZ: Davell Crawford: Tribute to Fats Domino @ MIM    July 15

#############################################

Davell Crawford: Tribute to Fats Domino

 

The New Orleans piano tradition has been widely praised by many around the world. New Orleans has also arguably

 

produced more great piano players than any other city in the world. This honor is held highly by the many locals and music

 

connoisseurs who live and visit this city.

 

Davell Crawford, an all-around musical sensation, is one of the true wonders of the contemporary Crescent City music

 

scene. Bill Taylor from Blues Access proclaims, “plain and simple, Davell Crawford is one of the most talented musicians

 

alive!”

 

Also known as the “Prince of New Orleans,” Crawford is one of the city’s most exiting live performers. Despite his age, he

 

has for years been a major force in American roots music. He has traveled, recorded, and taught the importance of music

 

not only from New Orleans but true roots music, from traditional jazz to gospel, funk, and R&B. Cited as one of the few

 

musicians committed to keeping the piano sounds of New Orleans alive, he stands as the only (and most documented)

 

young piano player who has kept the music true while adding a little freshness and vitality.

experiment and contributing to the field of folklore.

[*]  13TH Film: The 13th Amendment                               Now                           

#############################################

13TH is a 2016 American documentary by director Ava DuVernay.

Centered on race in the United States criminal justice system, the film is titled after the Thirteenth

 Amendment to the United States Constitution which theoretically outlawed slavery.

DuVernay's documentary argues that slavery is being perpetuated, however,

through mass incarceration.

 

13TH has garnered acclaim from film critics.

 

The full Thirteenth Amendment reads as follows: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,

except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall

exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
