08-06-2018 12:00:00 10-06-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Dion Parsons and the 21st Century Band | Time Vary With drummer Dion Parson, saxophonist Ron Blake, trumpeter Melvin Jones, and Victor Provost. Grammy Award–winning drummer and composer Dion Parson has now been leading the stellar 21st Century Band for 20 years. Together with saxophonist Ron Blake (of the legendary Saturday Night Live Band), Parson formed 21st Century Band in 1998 to showcase the music of the U.S. Virgin Islands. It has since developed an innovative sound that mixes Virgin Islands traditions, such as Quelbe, and Caribbean infusions, like reggae, calypso, soca, mento, ska, zouk, steel pan, chutney, and funk, with New Orleans and African overtones. This popular group sells out Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola every year, and we’re excited to welcome them back for three nights during Caribbean Heritage Month. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=310664 Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Jazz at Lincoln Center Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Jazz at Lincoln Center
