Black Stax, April 9, 7pm
An ensemble group of performers, Black Stax performs smart music; every word carefully chosen and every song carries a message of societal challenges, common justice and community uplift. Fans appreciate the eclectic, urban sound laced with jazz and 70s-era soul, which provides life’s soundtrack to the sophisticated connoisseur. In 2013, the group released ‘LIVE at the Triple Door’ album in collaboration with TAF Academy.
Besides their unparalleled sound, what sets Black Stax apart is their ability to put on a memorable live show. Individually they are seasoned performers and collectively they are masters of setting a vibe and drawing in an audience. No two shows are ever the same!
