Brooklyn, NY – April 25, 2016 – On Tuesday, May 3rd, at 26 Bridge, Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC) and Communion Presents will celebrate BAC’s 50 years of supporting Brooklyn’s diverse creative and cultural community with an after party for Alive with Art.

Wyclef Jean dubbed Rachel Brown‘s music “the future.” Brown’s distinctive songwriting blends elements of her roots (Ethiopian, Bermudian, and Southern) with sounds from a childhood spent listening to soul greats, Motown, and hip-hop. The daughter of fashion designer Amsale Aberra, Rachel Brown’s live performance features sultry vocal styling with vintage flair.
Fresh from a national tour supporting G. Love and Special Sauce, The Bones of J.R. Jones performs 21st Century blues and folk with the passion of a teenage punk band. Recently expanded from a one-man band into a full ensemble, The Bones recently released their sophomore record, Spirit’s Furnace, just in time for Alive with Art.
Alive with Art After Party: Tuesday, May 3, 2016, 10:00 PM – 12:00 AM
