Stephanie McKay at Central Park Summerstage–Friday, June 13

Stephanie_mckay_in_car

My friend Stephanie brings her powerful vocals and infectious brew of soul and funk to bear to kick off Summerstage’s 2008 season tomorrow night.  The date’s in support of her forthcoming album "Tell It Like It Is," which is already gaining buzz in Europe.  I expect this show to even better than the two shows she sold out at the Blue Note this past March.

One more thing: She’s opening for one of the true legends of music, the great Mavis Staples. So it should be a fantastic night of music.
