Doug E. Fresh, Dazz Band, Angie Stone and Plunky & Oneness on the bill for Henry Street Heritage Festival
Finally got to the bottom of what’s happening at the Henry Street Heritage Festival this year (thanks, Molly Bell). And it looks really cool.
Doug E. Fresh, an East Coast old-schooler and the original human beatbox, is the headliner for the Sept. 15 event at Elmwood Park. Rounding out the bill are: The Dazz Band, who recorded “Joystick” and “Let It Whip;” Angie Stone, whose great vocal work has been only slightly overshadowed by her stint on “Celebrity Fit Club;” and contemporary jazz act Plunky & Oneness.
