This year, Rhythm and Blues by the Brook is headlined by the high energy funk of The Family Stone and the iconic R&B super group of the ’70s, War, and features “world music on jet fuel” Safro-Rock artist Mthakathi and the RT Funk Band.
Rhythm and Blues by the Brook also includes free inflatable activity rides, a petting zoo, and pony rides for young children. The children’s area will open at 12:00 noon and close at 4:30, when the main act takes the stage.
Also returning to Cedar Brook Park on May 30 is a classic car show, located near the basketball court across the park from the concert area.
A wide variety of food vendors will be on site, and a number of picnic tables will be conveniently located under a tent in the concert “outfield.” Concert-goers are also welcome to bring blankets or lawn chairs.
A limited amount of parking is available around the perimeter of Cedar Brook Park. Visitors traveling by car should be prepared to leave their vehicle several blocks away and walk into the park.
