Rock the Spirit of the Harlem Renaissance…close to 100 years later….It is NEVER too late to embrace pivotal legacies…and pertinent American history!
“We’re gonna rock this town, rock it inside out, we’re gonna rock this town, make ‘em scream and shout...”
Well, truth be told, I was never a member of “Stray Cats” (though I saw and chatted with band members at some airport while waiting to board a plane, on one of my travels to some destination in the world.) Their Eighties hit, “Rock This Town,” from their 1982 album “Built for Speed,” was a top ten hit in the U.S.; reached the same standing in the UK in 1981, and influences aaduna’s 2018 plan for its annual fundraiserat the Carriage House Theater in Auburn, NY on May 24th.
aadunawill rock the house with intriguing words and interpretative music in the spirit of the Harlem Renaissance as it continues its fundraiser tradition (the 4th,) which is a special free-standing supplement to the bi-monthly “word, revisited” literary series hosted by the Cayuga Museum, Olive Trees and aaduna.
So how will aaduna accomplish its singular statement of rocking “this town?”…
