June 1, 2011

NEW YORK, NEW YORK (June 1, 2011)Billie’s Black, the source of gourmet soul in Harlem, will host a two-day all-star jam session in celebration of their fifth anniversary. Just as Billie’s has redefined the expectations of soul food, the artists who will take the stage have redefined the expectations of soul music. Covering a wide spectrum of sounds and styles, the Ultimate All-Star Jam will feature artists who have become a part of the Billie’s Black family over the past five years, performing time and again on their stage. These emerging/underground artists include jazz musician Kafele, Broadway fixture Chester Gregory and recent 106 and Park Music Matters artist KimberlyNichole, among a host of others.

The two-day event will take place on Friday, June 24 and Saturday June 25, just in time to wrap up Black Music Month. Backed by an all-star band with musical director Trevor Allen, the space will be transformed into a mini concert hall. Tickets can be purchased the day of the event(s) at the door for $20 per show. The full lineup: Friday, June 24: Kafele, Gloria Ry’ann, MiKA, Mike Hammond, Ra-Re Valverde, Lydia Caesar, Russell Taylor, Lorenda Robinson of Brown Baby Girl and KimberlyNichole. Saturday, June 25: Dexter Kendrick, Buttafly Soul, Collette, Nakia Henry, Abby Dobson, Chester Gregory, Adina Nyree, Darius Booker, Kevin-Anthony and Vivian Sessoms.

Billie’s Black is a gourmet soul food restaurant/bar/lounge located in Harlem. It opened June 23, 2006 and despite some bumps and bruises along the way, has survived in a time when many restaurants have not. Billie’s Black is owned by Adriane R. Ferguson and is named after her mother, Billie. The physical address is 271 West 119th Street.
