About the Artist

Jimmy Hill and the Allstarz Band are one of Brooklyn’s most electrifying and long-running musical ensembles. Having performed at venues from the Apollo, BB King’s, the Cutting Room and the Essence Club, the Allstarz are perhaps best known for their work with the late, great vocalist Charles Bradley and his James Brown-impersonating alter-ego, Black Velvet. Jimmy Hill leads a special, condensed line-up for this winter warm-up performance.
