Midsummer Night Swing — The James Hunter Six at Damrosch Park

Damrosch Park

60 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023

U.K. soul man James Hunter leads us back to the early days of R&B when it was “part rock ’n’ roll, part jump blues, all…swagger” (NPR). With a voice that can sigh, growl, and rip; a knack for showmanship; and a band that knows how to dig a deep groove, Hunter provides the perfect soundtrack to a hot summer night on the dance floor.  — Lincoln Center
