2015 MAGIC CITY MUSIC FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES STAR-STUDDED LINE UP FOR CONCERT DURING BIRMINGHAM’S BUSIEST WEEKEND
Birmingham’s Own Rickey Smiley Slated To Host Concert Featuring R&B Greats Jodeci, Dru Hill and Others
Residents and visitors to the “Magic City” are in for a musical treat during one of Birmingham’s liveliest weekends with the arrival of the Magic City Music Festival. The star-studded concert experience, presented by Coca Cola and Aaron’s, will provide attendees with a soulful journey down memory lane as they enjoy chart-topping hits from the ‘90s, ‘00s and today delivered by legendary R&B, Soul and Hip
Hop artists at this special, one-night only engagement. The concert will feature: Jodeci, Dru Hill, SWV and Doug E. Fresh, with host Rickey Smiley.
JODECI maintains the distinction of being one of the most successful R&B groups of the ‘90s releasing several multiplatinum albums that included chart-toppers like “Forever My Lady” and the well-received remake of Stevie Wonder’s classic “Lately.” The group recently reunited for a reunion tour, much to the excitement of thousands of fans nationwide.
DRU HILL scored seven number one singles on Billboard’s Top 40 during the group’s hottest run in the 90’s. Shortly after that, lead singer Sisqo had a successful solo career with hits like “The Thong Song.” Today, the group reunites on stage with an amazing show and an impressive musical catalogue.
SWV —short for Sisters With Voices—broke through in 1992 with a multi-platinum debut album named It’s About Time, which featured multiple R&B favorites, including the classic “Right Here.” The group recently announced the release of a long-awaited new album titled “Ain’t No Man,” which will be released on October 30th, the day of the Festival.
DOUG E. FRESH is often recognized as one of the best entertainers in the business, and he continues to wow audiences with his ‘human beat box’ ability. No one rocks a crowd like hip hop veteran Doug E. Fresh!
RICKEY SMILEY is a native of Birmingham and definitely a hometown hero and favorite. His nationally syndicated radio show continues to be a fan favorite in over 52 cities, and his comedic talent remains well received at comedy shows and festivals across the country.
