On Sunday, July 1, Brother Josephus and the Love Revival Orchestra opens the 53rd season of Morgan Park Summer Music Festival with a foot-stomping program of New
Orleans-style rhythm and jazz. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Morgan Park and is free to the public.
Get set to be blown away by a wild Mardi Gras jambalaya of New Orleans rhythms, classic rock, feel-good secular gospel and old-school soul. The Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra, or BroJo, aims to impart a message of righteousness and love with a spirited one-of-a-kind stage spectacle. Radio station WWOZ calls them “awesome,” Times Union describes a BroJo concert as “a love party like you’ve never seen,” and Nipptown.com raves “every night is Fat Tuesday whenever they play.” BroJo has brought its colorful, exuberant musical “revolution” all over the country, including New Orleans, Los Angeles and New York City, where they’ve performed at such prestigious music venues as the Highline Ballroom and B.B. King.
“The lively music of Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra is a great way to start off the season. I hope everyone will join us for what promises to be a very special evening in Morgan Park. ” said Marge Suozzi, executive board chairwoman.
Morgan Park Summer Music Festival is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that has been providing free concerts in the park for 53 years. The shows are completely funded through the generous donations that are received from businesses and individuals. The expenses for the BroJo concert have been underwritten in memory of John S. Appleby. Taxpayer money is not used to bring this high caliber talent to the Festival year after year.
So come on down to Morgan Park and enjoy a wonderful evening of family entertainment under the stars. Bring a
blanket or chairs and picnic if you wish. Children are welcome. Please note that alcoholic beverages are not permitted in Morgan Park. Morgan Park is located on Germaine Street at the end of Landing Road in Glen Cove. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in St. Patrick’s Parish Hall, Pearsall Avenue, Glen Cove. For further
