We’re really excited about this year’s headliner – Miles Electric Band – who performs in Austin for the first time! The eclectic ensemble features the musical alumni of Miles, in addition to some contemporary players – and a live DJ/remixer. Harmonica player Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson) will sit in for a few songs.
Trumpeter Keyon Harrold, the trumpeter behind Don Cheadle’s performance in the film Miles Ahead, and who portrayed Junior in the film, is on the line-up, along with Robert Irving, III, Antoine Roney, Blackbyrd McKnight, Munyungo Jackson, Richard Patterson, DJ Hapa and Vince Wilburn, Jr., nephew of Miles, who is bandleader/drummer. The band covers Miles’ rock/fusion period, blending the classic with the contemporary.
We’re equally excited about our line-up this year, which includes Particle Kid/Micah Nelson featuring Sunny War, David Wax Museum, Dos Santos, Striking Matches and Cedric Burnside.
Kind Of Blue scotch whisky signature cocktails and shots will be served!
Miles Davis House supports HOME, a non-profit 501c3 on a mission to renovate the childhood home of Miles Davis.
