Jazzy Sundays: Melvin Johnson and the Electro-Akoustics

June 2, 2024

5:00 pm

7:00 pm

Pianist/composer Melvin Johnson will offer a gift to the world with his debut album, Little Red Wagon, overflowing with musical narratives on family love and the life lessons they provide. Johnson, who once thought of himself as only a live performer, found a unique hunger for recording and production during COVID lockdown. Mixed with exposure in multiple genres and styles, his education and training as a classical pianist forged a fluid and diverse composer and producer whose time has finally come! Little Red Wagon is an invitation into the narratives that have created who Melvin is today, immersing you through sound and story… overflowing with origins profound and far-reaching.

Opener: JHU

JHU is a multi genre artist whose performance seamlessly fuses performance techniques and concepts. He has performed numerous international tours and has shared stages and studios with artists such as Erykah Badu, Bruce Hornsby, Hit-Boy, and Bryan Lynch.


All concerts are free and family friendly. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Food and drink will be available for purchase. A pop-up market will be on site at each park with locally crafted items, food and wearables.
