"Soulin' on the River" ft Lucky 7 Brass Band

The summer concert series “Soulin’ on the River” continues at The Grove on Mud Island River Park here in Memphis with the Lucky 7 Brass Brand. It’s a chance to get out of the house, enjoy the fantastic summertime weather and kick back while you take in the unique collaboration of seven brass musicians. Combined with food and your own lawn chair, this event featuring Lucky 7 Brass Band is worth getting out to see on August 9.

More About Lucky 7 Brass Band

As the band’s website proclaims, the Lucky 7 Brass Band is made up of some of the “baddest of the bad musicians in Memphis.” It is a group that plays everything from soul to rap and everything else in between. The band is made up of seven talented musicians. This includes Randy Ballard on the trumpet as well as Jawaun Crawford on the trumpet. Both Nathan Duvall and Victor Sawyer play the trombone, and Jim Spake plays the alto sax. Neal Bowen brings the beat as he plays the bass, and Ryan Peel brings it all together on drums.

More About the Event

When heading out to the Lucky 7 Brass Band show, gates will open at 6 p.m. It’s best to show up early in order to get the best seat. It is a family-friendly event, and you can bring picnic baskets, lawn chairs, blankets and coolers. The show does begin at 7 p.m., so the earlier you arrive, the more time you’ll have to set up.

You can park downtown and then ride a bicycle down to the river. You can also rent a bike or scooter if you’d like. If you have gear, you can also walk down without a problem. Plus, there is Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible parking available right on Mud Island.

Upcoming Acts

There is a performance every Friday night beginning on June 21 and ending with the Lucky 7 Brass Band on August 9. While you owe it to yourself to take in the final act of the summer, there are plenty of other acts to enjoy.

On June 21, Nick Black takes center stage for “Soulin’ on the River.” Then, on July 12 (there is a weekend off to celebrate the Fourth of July) Black Cream will perform. There is another weekend off before Katrina Anderson plays on July 26, and then the Lucky 7 Brass Band will perform on August 9 to close out the event.

“Soulin’ on the River” is an extended concert series taking place at The Grove on Mud Island River Park. Kicking off on June 21 and ending on August 9, it is a great opportunity to get out of the house and take in some of the best Memphis sounds. So whether you check out Tonya Dyson or the Lucky 7 Brass Band, make sure to schedule plans to head out to the park by 6 p.m. That way, you will have the best seats for some world-class performances.
