Vivian Sessoms sings You are So Beautiful for South By South Orange NJ
For three groundbreaking days in late June, South Orange Village came alive with creative collisions of arts, ideas and music. From live drone demonstrations to coding concerts, compelling talks to live blues, rock and jazz, SOxSO had something for everyone.
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
It’s a never-before-seen-or-heard musical collision with internationally-acclaimed bassist and musical director Mike Griot delivering an unprecedented collection of classic rock, blues, pop and jazz featuring Grammy winner Will Calhoun from the legendary rock band Living Colour, and a memorable tribute to the late, great Joe Cocker featuring the extraordinary Vivian Sessoms, direct from her world tours.
In addition, django-guitar virtuoso Stephane Wrembel will perform with his trio, as well as international beatbox champion Adam Matta. Joining Griot in the “Causing Collisions Orchestra” will be legendary NYC guitarist Tomas Doncker, harmonica master David Barnes, and a special appearance by reggae ambassadors KIWI featuring talent from the world-famous Wailers.
This once-in-a-lifetime concert experience is not included in the general admission wristband purchase; tickets to this event must be purchased separately.
South by South Orange was presented by the Village of South Orange, Seton Hall University, the South Orange Village Center Alliance, the South Orange Performing Arts Center and St. Barnabas Medical Center.
