The City of Rochester's "Rochester Music Festival" has been re-tooled and re-tweaked and given a much-needed general overhaul focusing on a strictly soul and R&B format. The 2018 lineup of the now renamed "Summer Soul Music Festival" is a killer-diller with a bunch of legends and heavy hitters set to perform.
Saturday's line up-includes Angie Stone, Musiq Soulchild, Al B. Sure, Raheem DeVaughn, and Kindred the Family Soul. Sunday is just as cool, with The Mary Jane Girls featuring Val Young & the Stone City Family, Morris Day and the Time, Cameo featuring Larry Blackmon, and George Clinton and Parliament, Funkadelic. That's right, baby, the Mothership is coming.
Summer Soul Music Festival Saturday, August 25, and Sunday, August 26, Frontier Field, 333 Plymouth Avenue, 5 p.m., $40 each day or $55 for both. rocsummersoulfest.com
