Jackie Brown & the Gill Street Band
July 14, 2018 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm
People are still talking about the great show by Jackie Brown & the Gill Street Band at last year’s Festival.
The Gill Street Band is a 9-piece classic funk/soul/r&b band with perhaps the hardest working 4-piece horn section east of the Mississippi, or, at least in the Borough of State College. Performing the funkiest classic soul and horn music throughout the Commonwealth, The Gill Street Band is fronted by the dynamic singer-slash-force of nature, Jackie Brown. One writer, equating Ms. Brown’s powerful vocals and stage presence to Chaka Khan, the Queen of Funk-Soul, stated “Ms. Brown’s energy on stage with The Gill Street Band’s horns undoubtedly turns the focal point of any room into an all-night hip-shaking tempest. Don’t miss this band!”
The individual members backing Jackie have performed across the region in numerous professional touring bands, making The Gill Street Band an explosive horn-fired wall of sound to be reckoned with. This nine piece arsenal brings it at every show, in every venue, from start to finish laying down upbeat tunes that get your body jumping and your feet moving.
