CARSON (MNS) — The City of Carson and the Carson Citizens Cultural Arts Foundation will present non-stop entertainment for the entire family at the Juneteenth Rhythm and Blues Virtual Celebration, June 19, 2021 at 5:30 p.m.

 

Juneteenth marks the day in history when African American slaves in Texas first received word that all slaves were free. The news came to Texas in June 1865, two-and-a-half years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

Entertainment guests include DW3, Greg Rose, African Study Group, and Jennifer Rocket.

DW3 has had the pleasure of performing on the Warren Hill, Wayman Tisdale and Dave Koz Jazz Cruises. They performed in shows like City of Lights Jazz Fest, Newport Jazz Festival, Long Beach Jazz Fest, BB Kings, Vault 30, and the Annual Taste of Soul Festival in Los Angeles.

Greg Rose and band play a pivotal role performing R&B.  Even though Rose created his own personal style of music, many in the industry have compared his sound to the late Teddy Pendergrass, Isaac Hayes, and Luther Vandross.

Viewing is available at http://carsonca.gov/Juneteenth, Cable Channel 35 (Spectrum), and Cable Channel 99 (ATT).
