Lenny Kravitz’s roots stretch to the Caribbean. Wyclef Jean was born there. Both will come to New Jersey for a talk in the next few weeks!
Kravitz and Jean will talk about their music at the intimate Victoria Theater at NJPAC in Newark, as part of a new series entitled “An Evening With …”
The conversation with the Bahamas-roots Kravitz will take place on September 17th and will be hosted by Questlove. Kravitz has been a fixture in the music scene for three decades, since the release of his debut album, Let Love Rule (which he self-produced and sold to Virgin Records) back in 1989. He will release a new album, ‘Raise Vibration,’ on Sept. 7.
Haitian-born Jean will be interviewed by Grammy Museum executive director Bob Santelli on Oct. 16th. Both events will include a performance, as well.
The NJPAC series will be presented in association with the Grammy Museum Experience, which opened last year, housing memorabilia displays and more at Newark’s Prudential Center.
