LAKECIA BENJAMIN AND SOUL SQUAD - Part of the 5-Day New Orleans Music Fest

Saturday, August 30th at 8:00pm

"She has so much to give – energy like dervish. Pure bliss through sound."

"Lakecia Benjamin knows how to bring on the funk, and it’s heaped on top a pile of jazz and soul."

 

The Payomet Performing Arts Center is pleased to welcome Lakecia Benjamin and her band, Soul Squad, to North Truro to perform on August 30th, direct from her international tour!

Charismatic and dynamic saxophonist/bandleader Lakecia Benjamin, who has played with Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, The Roots and Macy Gray, takes center stage in her own right with the release of her unconventional soul/funk album, RETOX.

On RETOX, Benjamin shows off her impeccable, purist jazz resume with a deep, kaleidoscopic and ingeniously arranged mix of original old school soul and funk songs as well as the Stevie Wonder classic, "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing." An A-list of established and emerging vocalists such as Krystle Warren perform on this electrifyingly diverse album.

"I call my band Soul Squad because, even as a kid, I always wanted to play like I was in an army of funky musicians," says Benjamin.
