The Family Stone

Aug 9, Friday - 7:30pm
Jay Paul Company Main Stage

Performing timeless hits like “Hot Fun in the Summertime,” “Dance to the Music,” “I Want to Take You Higher” and more, The Family Stone carries on the funky legacy of Sly and the Family Stone and takes their relentlessly danceable groove into the future.

Original saxophonist Jerry Martini and Phunne Stone (daughter of Sly Stone and co-founder Cynthia Robinson), joined by Swang Stewart on vocals, Nate Wingfield on guitar, Jimi McKinney on keys, Frank Klepacki on drums and Blaise Sison on bass, reimagine the music of the first interracial, inter-gender, major mainstream band in rock history.

The Family Stone keeps alive the songs that provided a soundtrack to the ’60s and ’70s: legendary anthems like “Everyday People,” “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin),” “Family Affair,” “Sing a Simple Song” and many other instantly recognizable tunes from their vast discography. Their catalog also includes the optimistic, rousing “Stand,” which has been preserved in the Library of Congress and inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Keeping the legacy to its original sound and raw groove intact, The Family Stone will deliver an unforgettable musical experience. This is the music that got the half-million-strong crowd at Woodstock on their feet and wowed millions more from Madison Square Garden to Tokyo. Join The Family Stone as they continue to spread the roots of funk that sparked a funk revolution.
