The Persuasions, an A Capella group which humbly started out on the street corners of Brooklyn, proudly boast their forty plus years together with only its founding members. Often referred to the undisputed “Kings of A Capella,” this global phenomenon has a heavy influence of Gospel, Soul, with a healthy dose of Pop and has released 26 albums since their beginning in 1962. The group has infused classic songs with their own powerful style, often referred to as “Persuasion-izing it,” to create a new musical experience. Dedicated and new fans alike are inspiration for the members to keep performing for over half a century.

Felix Hernandez is in the business of remembering the good ol’ days. Hernandez’s wildly popular radio show, Rhythm Revue, takes on a life of its own at New York’s Roseland, where three thousand disciples regularly come to hear Fernandez spin the sounds of the past and boogie down. Felix Hernandez will rock the crowd once again at SummerStage again with his mix of soul, Motown, funk, salsa and disco dance classics. Bring your dancing shoes.
