Japhar Pullen — noon to 1:30 p.m.
Japhar Pullen is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona. Influenced by many great dancers, R&B, pop and soul performers, he brings passion and energy every time he is on stage. In 2019, Pullen was the winning solo artist in Alice Cooper’s annual Proof is in the Pudding music competition. He was recently invited to sing backing vocals in the recording studio for an upcoming Sister Sledge release.
Gabriel Bey & Friends — 2:30 to 4 p.m.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Gabriel Bey, aka Spooky Kool, has been playing trumpet since 1960 and has performed across the globe, from Thailand to Amsterdam and South Carolina to California. Bey has played with many of the Motown artists who made their way to the Cleveland scene, and he developed many performing and touring groups who started their careers playing his original compositions. You’ll hear the music of Miles, the songs of Kenny Garrett, and the groove of Roy Hargrove—even a little Prince, as defined by Herbie Hancock.
