FUNK & SOUL Celebrates Black History Month
COTUIT - "FUNK & SOUL" is a special concert in honor of Black History Month that is being presented by the Zion Union Heritage Museum at the Cotuit Center for the Arts in honor of Black History Month. "FUNK & SOUL" is taking place on Saturday, February 16 at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, 4404 Falmouth Rd (Rte 28), Cotuit, MA. Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30 start.
Featuring 6-time Grammy nominees, The GroovaLottos, this special concert/party is a fundraiser for the Zion Union Heritage Museum, a museum that celebrates the African-American, Cape Verdean and Wampanoag populations as well as the ethnic and demographic diversity of Cape Cod.
The Zion Union Heritage Museum was founded in part by the Community Preservation Act and the Lyndon Paul Lorusso Foundation in partnership with The Town of Barnstable. The Museum will be recognized not only as a historical landmark in the Commonwealth but a national historic landmark as well.
The GroovaLottos and the Cotuit Center for the Arts have a common link in the fact that the Center's founder, Cotuit resident and former Motown session guitarist, James Wolf brought drummer Eddie Ray Johnson and keyboardist, singer/ songwriter Mwalim together for some jam session in 2009 that evolved into the The GroovaLottos in 2011, making their very first appearance at the 4 C's Tilden Arts Center for the Multicultural Festival.
Tickets are $27 and $32, with senior discounts available. They can be purchased in advance by contacting the Cotuit Center for the Arts Box Office, 508-428-0669 x1 or they can be ordered on-line at https://artsonthecape.org/explore/funk-and-soul-celebration
