July 21st brings rock band Vinny & Presently Unknown. Basement Bhangra superstar DJ Rekha lights up the stage on July 28. August starts off with a bang on the 4th, as New Orleans-infused funk maestros Afroskull get the party started. Kevin & Jonny will shake the park on August 11 with Jamaican Rhythm & Blues. On August 18, the great Cumbia River Band performs All-time favorite Cumbia and Música de Río (riversidemusic) "HITS" and originals. We wind up the 2019 season on August 25th, with the Theater For The New City/Puppet Show.
