Join us for Petersburg’s Saturday night Block party to celebrate the LMI International Film Festival. The stage will be set at Old Towne Civic Center where Gina Loring will open with a powerful Spoken Word performance followed by Plunky & Oneness highlighting an evening of music, food, and celebration!
Plunky & Oneness is one of the most enduring and versatile funk, jazz, Afro-fusion groups of all time. Led by saxophonist J. Plunky Branch, who has a unique combination of exotic smooth grooves, sax, vocals, African percussion, and electronics, the group’s infectious energy moves audiences of all ages to celebrate, dance and shout. Recently he has performed in Paris, explored music business opportunities in Japan; traveled to Brazil; and twice to Cuba to research and produce music recordings and a documentary film, Under the Radar – A Survey of Afro-Cuban Music.
